    Bob, instead of complaining someone else isn't promoting, why doesn't the JPNA simply promote.

  • Zarah F want to hear other peoples opinions.

    Bob, not sure what you are ranting about, guess I'm not in the know like you. However, I find it strange that on one hand you are complaining he is not helping promote and on the other you're asking him to leave them alone.

As North Branch Trail Grows, Group Hopes To Make Area Businesses Thrive

Everyday Edgebrook, which is working to bring more shoppers to the area around Devon and Central avenues, as well as the Edgebrook Chamber of Commerce and the Edgebrook Community Association are expected to participate in the group, Charlier said.

Construction began in November on the first stage of the trail extension that will stretch from Devon and Caldwell avenues to Forest Glen Avenue near the Metra station on the Milwaukee District North Line. It is expected to take a year to complete.

This article has 2 other Chicago locations (Show)

In addition to the bridge over the river east of Central Avenue and north of Indian Road, the trail will cross over the Metra tracks near Indian Road and Ardmore Avenue via a second bridge.

As part of the second stage, which will end at Foster and Kostner avenues, the trail will cross the Edens Expressway via an existing underpass, which will be improved, and a new underpass will be built to allow the trail to cross Cicero north of LaBagh Woods in Forest Glen.

    As North Branch Trail Grows, Group Hopes To Make Area Businesses Thrive
    EDGEBROOK - A new group is forming to devise a way to capitalize on the 10,000 bicyclists - and their wallets - expected to use the extension of the North Branch Trail once it's complete.

    I'm guessing 10K total, with varying usage patterns. No other interpretation makes sense to me, but I've been known to miss the obvious at times.

Greetings Neighbors!

You are invited and we are in need of volunteers on Saturday, June 25 from 9 AM - 11 AM for a quick Spring cleaning of the Neighborhood Connection Project (NCP) bricolage mural. You all know this wonderful piece of outdoor bricolage art (the largest on Chicago's NW side) located in the Metra underpass at Kinzua, Hiawatha and Lehigh. Many of you use this point of connection between Wildwood, North Edgebrook and Edgebrook. It's fantastic (!) and was done by over 400 community members over 5 1/2 years. And now, it needs some cleaning. That's where you come in whether you use the space (as so many of us do) or not.

Kindly stop on by at 9 AM on June 25 with some garbage bags, a broom, a dustpan (or whatever you can muster) and we can, together as a community, clean it up in no time and be on our way. We'll stay no later than 11 AM. Done this before. It's fun. It's doable. It gives back to each other. Hey, it's our art and our underpass.

And to make sure this all goes smoothly, NCP is pleased to announce that for Summer 2016, our very own Park Community Church (https://parkcommunity.church/neighborhoods/edgebrook/) will lead the underpass clean-up efforts. This is huge! Thank you Park Community Church, whose congregation is made up of many of our Edgebrook, North Edgebrook and Wildwood neighbors.

That's it. Questions? Always ask. Jac.charlier@gmail.com.

More about NCP on our Facebook Page. I look forward to seeing many neighbors on Saturday, June 25.

Started in Spring of 2010, the Neighborhood Connection Project (NCP) is a democratically gathered, citizen-led initiative to build community by repairing and beautifying the Metra railroad underpass located at Kinzua, Hiawatha and Lehigh. Completed in August 2015, NCP is the largest outdoor public art bricolage mural on Chicago's Northwest side. Thanks to community funds raised and the financial support of After School Matters (ASM), NCP provided summer internships for 90 local teens.
