Lawrence Avenue Is Developing Exactly To Plan, Alderman Says

Ziad Haddad of Contemporary Concepts, which is proposing a 24-unit mixed-use building in the 2200 block of West Lawrence Avenue, said he was attracted to the vibrancy he saw on the street between Damen and Western.

People deconvert on side streets, but no one wants the [rental] units replaced on those same streets, so that leaves arterial avenues like Lawrence and Western to pick up the slack, Pawar said.

    Lawrence Avenue Is Developing Exactly To Plan, Alderman Says
    LINCOLN SQUARE - Ald. Ameya Pawar (47th) has responded to critics who've complained about the lack of a master plan for Lawrence Avenue and called for a moratorium on development until one is created. "The vision was the streetscape," the alderman told DNAinfo.

    Labor contracts only last for an agreed up period of time - and are then open for negotiation again.

    The CTU may have agreed to increased pension in lieu of a raise for one contract period but that doesn't last forever. The labor contract between the CTU and the CPS includes what is agreed to for that contract and that contract period only. No more and no less.

    Like any negotiations, reach and agreement or suffer the consequences.

  • So other than the accurate info on cakepops, if you are going to argue about why my property taxes are soaring now I would recommend you not forget about the other huge broke pensions in our beloved city.
    And I am not a teacher or firefighter, just so you know there,
