What Ward?

Sorry for the dumb question, but does anyone happen to know what Ward 1600 W Blackhawk is in? A crew of workers came by today and after having not touched the side of our street with a concrete wall separating our house from the Jewel in six years, decided today was a great day to just mow down everything, scoop up all my mulch and leave me with a pile of ivy and weeds that they didn't pull. they left their mask hanging from my fence and their rake sitting across the street.

Division blue line

Anyone know what happened? There's at least 4 ladder trucks, 5 ambulances and the tunnel and emergency rescue truck. No police though.

  • From what I saw on Twitter, there was a small fire near the tracks.
    That's all the info I have.

Illegal Handicap Parking Spot

There's a reserved handicap spot on our block, but the people with the handicap sticker who needed the spot sold the building and moved out of the country several months ago. The other tenants who live there are illegally using the former owners window hanging to park in the spot. The signs need to be removed. Does anyone know where to report this? I looked on the city services / 311 site and don't see anything related to this issue. Thanks for any help!

  • I reached out to 2nd Ward Alderman's office and am awaiting response. I also just noticed on EB that a permit was issued for the same building (1448 W Blackhawk I believe) to renovate a wood porch.

    I just dealt with this exact same circumstance for over a year with Alderman do nothing over on Division St. It was one of the most frustrating things I've ever experienced and basically turned me off from anything that has to do with this guy.

    Bottom line is since the person who owns the permit isn't requesting it be removed, its a third party in this case (You) the Alderman has to get approval from the city council which in and unto itself is a task b/c he doesn't care about his constituencies needs only his. Therefore it will likely be put on the back burner until there is less important topics on hand at which point if it is approved then the Dept of Finance is notified and they send a crew out to remove it. I worked closely with the Dept of Finance who I had hound the Alderemans office which may have helped our cause, however like I said it took over a year. Looks like you might be in a different Ward so it may be a different experience for you. I hope so!
