It was one of the major concerns expressed by residents of Southeast Lake View this autumn as the Howard Brown Health Center's Broadway Youth Center sought a zoning variance to operate on a residential street.
Residents' concerns were countered with statements such as "those people have a right to be on the public way" and "loitering is not illegal" and much worse.
So we had a good chuckle when we heard this at 3:02 yesterday afternoon:
DISPATCHER: Got a disturbance at 4025 North Sheridan at the Howard Brown Health Center. You got a group of people loitering in front. They want you to move them along.
