EMC Garage Demo Dust

I seem to recall receiving a flyer from the developer of the garage that a spray of water was required during demolition to control the dust, but that in January it was too cold to use water. How about now?

Police Parking Structure - 5400 North Lincoln Avenue

I have been to the Police station twice in the past 2 weeks about minor vehicle accident. Both times I was stopped in the parking structure by an on duty uniformed officer in a police vehicle who is patrolling the structure. Is this a good use of our police resource? Not out patrolling the streets only their parking structure. Are there not camera's for that??????

    I wonder if they have had problems with all of the bars around...

  • Maybe there's hijinks happening in that parking structure? My uncle, who is now retired from the CPD told me years ago someone set fire to a police officers personal car in their parking structure. It happens.

6 Gunshots At 2AM

Did anyone else hear 6 gunshots near Summerdale and Lincoln around 2AM last night? They were close to the 20th District Police Dept.

  • Yes, loud bangs accompanied by shouting. Any other information?

  • I'm was hoping for a 6 unit section 8 structure so all of you could appreciate diversity but apparently it will just be another single family home of a rich white family.

  • Oh Ben why the racism? I love white people they taste like chicken.

Ridiculous parking ticket! Filling a quota!?

My husband received a ticket this morning on Paulina in Andersonville for parking 12 inches from curb. Seeing as there was that snow storm the day/night before and no plowing done on side streets, is this ticket worth fighting? Seems ridiculous as he was not parked out further than other cars on street, but was the only one with a ticket.

  • We got a similar ticket a year or two ago, also during winter with a lot of snow on the street that made it difficult to get any closer to the curb then we were parked. We contested in person and the ticket was voided. I would contest, send pictures note the date of the snowstorm and go in person.

    James, not everyone who needs a car for their work or lifestyle is fortunate enough to be able to find an affordable residence (house or apt.) with a lot or garage. I have friends who bought a condo and are still waiting for two more unit owners to die or move before they get a chance to buy a space in the tiny lot. I used to live in a corner 4-flat in A’ville (one side looked like a 2-flat, the other like an apt. bldg.) that went all the way to the alley, so there was no room for a garage. Had to park on the street, as did most people on the block. My first Chi. apt. was in a large courtyard bldg. in WRP that had no parking of its own, and none of the other apt. bldgs. on the block did either. It went condo before our lease was up--by the time we moved the price had been slashed by half but we still refused to buy because it had no parking. I get frustrated when the cabbies from the “corridor” across B’way park their cars on our block, until I realize that there just aren’t enough spaces available on theirs.
