John Manke is an active former Bay View resident who is involved in numerous neighborhood organizations, including the Bay View Historical Society, the Humboldt Park Fourth of July Association and the Shore Shore Farmers Market. He believes Bay View has a fine tradition in its past that we do not want to lose in the future.
I hope that you don't have to use the rest room while you are at the "Chill on the Hill" concert. I have been told that the restrooms are locked and the port-a-jons are also locked. If somebody wants to correct me, just let me know. At the Independence Day celebration at Humboldt Park, we heard complaints about the restrooms being locked and the port-a-jons being padlocked. If more information was available, then I could verify what the problem was about. It is bad enough that the restrooms have been deemed unfit for use, but could we at least be able to use them when needed? I wish that the Bay View Neighborhood Association would explain exactly what is happening at the Humboldt Park Chalet, that the restrooms are locked.
