You have the option of documenting this meeting of the Chicago Commission on Landmarks (and the subsequent Permit Review Committee meeting, if it is held) in person or remotely.

If you choose to attend in person, an additional hour will be added to your total assignment hours. You may be asked to provide government-issued photo ID and to go through a metal detector.

If you choose to document remotely, the meeting will be live-streamed at https://vimeo.com/event/2354896.

After the fact, the video recording should be available at this link, likely just titled “DPD Live.” It may have a different date/time on it than when the meeting actually took place, so you may need to search or skim back a bit.
