No parking on Ashland between Farwell and Morse 8/22

Around 11 am today they put up signs saying there's no parking from 7 am-4:30 pm today and for the next few days. Odds are they won't even do any work there today, but I moved my car just in case and thought I'd give a general warning to all.

Band Practicing on 1600 Block of West Farwell?

For about the last 6 months, a band has been practicing on West Farwell in the afternoon and on some evenings.

Does anyone know what can be done about this? I've called 911 several times but the noise continues.

  • My opinion is that you're on the right track with trying to contact an owner or property manager ... Or calling cops about the windows (you'll probably have the best luck using the legal jargon and calling it a private space that they have made open, so their amplified sound...

    My opinion is that you're on the right track with trying to contact an owner or property manager ... Or calling cops about the windows (you'll probably have the best luck using the legal jargon and calling it a private space that they have made open, so their amplified sound is disturbing the public space).

    You could also try figuring out who actually lives there and having someone (another neighbor who shares your frustration) contact them individually. That way you can have a calm conversation with one or 2 people, rather than a confrontation with a room full people/musicians in the middle of rehearsing. The latter would absolutely be a bad idea.
    Caps meeting and contacting the alderman might work, but I think that would probably take longer.

  • Oh, and from my own personal teenage experience ... when you're young and don't have as many responsibilities, sometimes you're just oblivious to how obnoxious loud music and other disturbances are ...
    Once someone took the time to show me and talk to me calmly about it, we can to a compromise. I wouldn't take someone yelling "be quiet" out the window seriously. I think that just adds fuel to the fire.

Gunshots?

Did I hear gunshots? I'm at Farwell & Ashland and they sounded like they were from the South.

  • eagledrc Farwell and Ashland

    I think it's a generally good area. Farwell & Ashland seems to be a hotbed for gang activity - I think some gang members live in a building on Ashland. But otherwise it seems okay. I think Sheridan and Pratt would be a fine place to live.

  • 3 gunshots around 2 AM at Morse and Ashland. Fast police response but scary.

    Thank YOU Christopher of Estes...For making my point.

    You do not know who "aims to murder" and who does not. And making sweeping assumptions about a group and acting upon those assumptions based on nothing more than paranoid speculation is like reading a portion of a manifesto by Joseph Stalin.
    Fortunately, your opinion is shared by a minority in this country.

    Why thank you. Can we all agree that certain gangs operate with the intent to do harm to others, and that having guns on public ways should be illegal. Especially if they are unregistered. The definition of a gang, according to the dictionary is - any gathering of 2 or more people. This can mean a church group, classroom, or gathering of congress. When the gangs commit felonies or other crimes, that is indeed the crime. To assault and disrupt the way of life for honest, hardworking citizens, is illegal. I do not always agree with certain laws, or the actions of some politicians as long as it follows the constitutional rights of all citizens, and those visiting from abroad.

    I do think the involvement of a police state, or big brother society can make things worse of course. I saw Robocop and Nonstop and do acknowledge the inherent sin that breach of technology incurs. I know enough about computers to know that anyone can make up a fake identity to do harm to others. Unfortunately with the recession many are doing this to prey on the hopes and dreams of those looking to make a better life for themselves. I rarely do business with any place before doing a thorough check on how they handle disputes, because money does not grow on trees.

    I think that police agencies should ditch the marked and unmarked squad cars for used Nissans or Chevys and go truly undercover. I think the concealed carry law was a big mistake, as it was not fully defined before it became a law. Unless we all either decide to quit our day jobs to become police officers, or police ourselves we need to go over each law and see how it can potentially harm someone.
