Foster Dog Beach Badly Deteriorating, Unsafe

Chicago is known for being an extremely dog friendly city. Take a walk along the lake and you are bound to pass several pet owners walking their dogs along the path or heading toward one of the dog beaches. Our city has over 20 dog parks, pet dedicated businesses, a few dog-friendly beaches, and many local shops that have water bowls outside (sometimes even treats!) for our loved furry friends. Chicago dog beach visits have steadily grown over the years, and the Foster dog beach as well as the Montrose-Wilson dog beach have had quite a bit of wear and tear. With limited up-keep and continued deterioration, are these beaches becoming too unsafe for dogs and their owners?

  • Michelle Edgewater Edgewater Resident: Love the neighborhood!

    I didn't think Foster was an official dog beach. There's no barriers at all between the dog and people beaches or between the dog beach and the walking path. But I love going there, watching people play with their pups, and wishing desperately that I could get a dog of my own :'-(

  • Rob

    That' the problem with the Foster beach DFA (dog friendly area). They haven't bulldozed the sand down from the walking path so dogs can quite easily just run up to the path, and the fence separating the dog area from the regular beach hasn't been maintained and extended with the lake levels being lower. It's a very dangerous situation, and I'm worried that the park district is allowing it to happen as a precursor to closing the DFA entirely.

Home Inspection recommendation?

Has anyone found a home inspector they love, who is reasonably priced? If you had a co op inspected, that would be a bonus!

  • I reccommend:
    Jarrod Spadino

    Windy City Home Inspection, Inc.

    Office: 847.926.HOME (4663)

    Fax: 847.926.4463

    PO Box 812 - Highland Park, IL 60035

    He was very thorough, explained more than I ever needed to know and sent me all kinds of info in print and email incase I forgot anything he said. And he didnt treat me like some stupid female who doesnt know anything about furnaces and "guy" stuff. I think I was charged around $300 - $400.

  • Costel Malureanu Licensed/Certified Home Inspector

    Jai,

    Thank you for recommending me to the community! I am getting calls regarding home or condo inspections related to this post,but unfortunately I cannot bid the pricing you listed.There is no way for me to perform an inspection for this amount and should be corrected.

Firetrucks at Magnolia and Bryn Mawr

I was just walking home from work when I saw four firetrucks. Two were coming east on Ridge and to were northbound on Broadway. The two lead trucks nearly hit each other at the intersection!

Then a somewhat comical scene ensued wherein each driver was trying to wave-on the other driver. They figured it out eventually and all the trucks went to the building on the SE corner of Magnolia and Bryn Mawr.

I was just walking home from work when I saw four firetrucks. Two were coming east on Ridge and to were northbound on Broadway. The two lead trucks nearly hit each other at the intersection!

Then a somewhat comical scene ensued wherein each driver was trying to wave-on the other driver. They figured it out eventually and all the trucks went to the building on the SE corner of Magnolia and Bryn Mawr.

At first they piled out and some began to hook up hoses to the fire hydrant. There were about 20 guys standing on the sidewalk on Bryn Mawr. I also saw one in the alley talking to a guy who was on a top floor balcony. Then they seemed to abandon the fire hydrant and instead one truck raised its latter to the roof of the building. I moved on at that point.

Just thought I'd report what I saw. I didn't see any smoke or anything so I'm not sure what's going on.

Mariano’s Foster/Sheridan First Look

It was a beautiful morning for a first look at the new Marianp’s Foster and Sheridan store. Edgeville Buzz was invited along with other community leaders to be the first to see what the store has planned for the neighborhood. It started with a few words from Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Alderman Harry Osterman and the man of the moment, Roundy’s CEO, Bob Mariano. The highlight of the speeches came when Lyle Allen of Care For Real received a $2500 check to help support his growing food pantry. Then after a quick ribbon cutting, people were anxious to set off on a tour of the new grocery store.

Term Limits for Mayor

Next year is the mayoral election. In addition to voting for Mayor, I'd like it if Chicagoans were able to vote on whether or not there should be term limits for Mayor, like there are in other cities. I'm thinking limiting the Mayor to three terms, consecutive or non-consecutive, sounds like a good number. Considering the power that the Mayor's office holds over the City Council, I think that it's important that we be able to change our Mayor if...

Next year is the mayoral election. In addition to voting for Mayor, I'd like it if Chicagoans were able to vote on whether or not there should be term limits for Mayor, like there are in other cities. I'm thinking limiting the Mayor to three terms, consecutive or non-consecutive, sounds like a good number. Considering the power that the Mayor's office holds over the City Council, I think that it's important that we be able to change our Mayor if we're dissatisfied with him/her. Regular elections aren't enough, because it's extremely difficult to beat an incumbent. Just look at Mayor Daley.

Does anyone else like this idea? If so, what's needed to get this proposition on a city-wide ballot and to make it binding?
