Plans to make the Apache Park neighborhood safer have sparked talked of a community meeting next month.
The city of Des Plaines is working with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) to tackle crime problems in the neighborhood, considered one of the toughest in Des Plaines. That’s the area where a 26-year-old man was killed in a gang-related shooting in July 2011.
