Cortland and Campbell dog park?

Did anyone attend the meeting last week or two ago where the city owned building on corner would be torn down and converted to a dog park? Curious what happened. Thanks.

  • The dog park being developed at Logan and Artesian is further along, and could use as much support as it can garner, too! Check out its progress online.

  • Has there been a fund started for this project?

Do you want to run with me?

I am currently training for the marathon and I run between a 10 and 11 minute mile, but currently I'm training in my own and don't want to go all the way to the lakeshore to run with a group (I'm not much of a group runner). If you are in the same boat and would like to do long runs together on the weekends, let me know!

Open hydrant - need help!

The hydrant on the corner of Campbell and Cortland has been open for six hours. I've called 311 two times to report it. Am I out of options to get the city to respond? Any advice?

  • The alderman's solution was to request that a custodian cap be placed on the fire hydrant to prevent it from being opened. Call 311 to request.

  • cortman NW IN raised / Chicago res since '03

    The one at Cortland and Rockwell has the custodian cap. One of the kids in the neighborhood has a "key" to open it, so that doesn't prevent much. All it does is make the, as Bill put it so eloquently above, big nut at top harder to get to.

    The one at Cortland and Rockwell has the custodian cap. One of the kids in the neighborhood has a "key" to open it, so that doesn't prevent much. All it does is make the, as Bill put it so eloquently above, big nut at top harder to get to.
    I get the "it's what kids do in the summer to have fun and cool off" but when it's still open the next morning, that's way too far. There should be a code, if you open it, you're responsible for shutting it off.
    From the look of who I think has the means of opening it, hygiene does not appear to be of importance. When more than one is open in a few block radius, our water pressure is low which makes it hard to shower or bathe our kids.
    The hypothetical fire excuse takes a backseat, at least in my eyes, to the safety of the kids. I worry when cars are going by, due to poor visibility caused by the obvious, one of them not paying attention and getting run over. Plus, they're kids. Their actions are erratic.
    Back to OP's original question. 311 is absolutely worthless in these situations. I would suggest 911, or as silly as it may sound and was mentioned above, swinging by the fire station on California and talking to someone there.
    Good luck! I've learned to just deal with it but have no problem with someone taking issue to it. I can't even begin to imagine how wasteful it has to be.

Drive-By 3000 W Cortland

Didn't see this show up, I assume because there's a typo about the address.

    they are still holding the beat meetings as they have been for years, which everyone should attend. they just don't call it CAPS anymore.

  • I'd be up for attending whatever it's called. I know this doesn't just affect others, but clearly, me as well. I am extremely aware and always keeping an eye out. Not just for myself, but everyone in the area - that isn't a gang banger of course!! HA
