A Message from Mayor Ron Serpico

Entering Melrose Park, one returns to a time when neighbors talked over the fence, moms watched out for each other’s children, and churches were central to family life. Our tree-lined streets are populated with well-manicured homes. But what you really notice upon entering Melrose Park is the diversity of its residents.

chicago tribune

LETTER TO THE EDITOR - June 25, 2014
Strip club doesn't belong next door to a convent

A lot of noise has surrounded the Catholic Missionary Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo and a Stone Park strip club recently opened next door to their convent. The strip club sits in a neighborhood where young children and families live, where elderly nuns come to retire and young sisters come to deepen their faith. It is not a neighborhood where a strip club belongs.
