What Can I Do?

I Have Called 24th District On Several Occasions About My Down Stairs Neighbor Having The Building Smell Like Marijuana. I Explain That There Is Kids And Families Who Live In The Building. 24th District Always Tells Me Somebody Will Be There In 15 Minutes & No One Ever Shows Up. It Occasionally Smells Like They Are Smoking & Growing It. And They Still Do Nothing! I Wanted To Know What Else I Could Do In Order To Get Someone Here When There Is A Arroma Of Marijuana In The Air.

  • Do you have kids? Referring to children as a nuisance? Shame on you. If your mother had the same attitude you wouldn't be her.

  • Sorry bout typo. I meant to say that YOU WOULD NOT BE HERE

Space next to Element Green Store?

Anyone know if anything is going in that space next to the Green Element Resale store?

  • No plans for the parcel- hopefully someone will develop and take Green Element - what an eyesore.

ALERT: Just got aggressively pursued and threatened on Ashland Ave and Catalpa

My partner and I were just walking home from dinner, northbound from Balmoral on the east side of Ashland. At Catalpa, we heard someone yelling behind us. When we turned around to look, the individual was shouting at us. He was demanding something and stated he had a .45 and would "blow the back of [our] heads off". We did not verbally address him, and began to cross over to the west side of Ashland. He yelled, "go ahead and...

My partner and I were just walking home from dinner, northbound from Balmoral on the east side of Ashland. At Catalpa, we heard someone yelling behind us. When we turned around to look, the individual was shouting at us. He was demanding something and stated he had a .45 and would "blow the back of [our] heads off". We did not verbally address him, and began to cross over to the west side of Ashland. He yelled, "go ahead and cross the street b**ch, I'm coming after you..", etc., and repeated that he had a gun. I then called 911 and he was in the median still yelling and pursing us. A wall of cars just got the green light, southbound, and I stepped into traffic while on the phone with the dispatcher and stopped traffic; the dispatcher could hear him. Still yelling, he around and went east on Bryn Mawr. I completed my 911 call in the Marathon, and met police and gave my account & described the guy. I did not have a chance to closely study him, but the approximate description is an African-American male, mid to late 20's, 5'10", very thin, short hair, wearing a light gray, unzipped hoodie, hood down, wearing round headphones on his neck, dark pants,and a backpack. He was loud, belligerent, and specifically threatening that he had a gun he was going to use. He was not Tourette's like, but certainly appeared manic (psychologically or drug induced), in that he was brazen enough to pursue two men in a well lighted, highly trafficked area, and did not stop until we literally stood in the middle of, and stopped oncoming traffic. Two police officers came to my home and took a report. I also, by chance, saw an unmarked police car on Bryn Mawr by the Marathon, stopped them, and gave my account just minutes after it happened. This individual will do this to anyone he encounters, and I think he has potential to seriously hurt someone. I hope they catch him. Last thing we needed before trying to sleep.

    Any further information about this burglary?

  • from what I can tell, there can only be limited info posted. crime reports don't even tell you exact address. the description means something.. if a thief breaks your window or door but there is no evidence of theft, it isn't classified as burglary. it's vandalism. I gutted you can deduce details about the crime that way.

    what else would you want to know?

    How is a fire lane maintained? Does the street become a park? How are leaves and snow removed? Last winter ice packed leaves remained on street bike paths from November until April rendering streets impossible to cross and bike lanes impossible to use. Have neighbors organized to keep the street park clear of leaves, debris and snow so it is usable from November through March? Is this a model for adding more park space in Chicago? Is the asumption that people on the block who have cars will just go somewhere else? I can't visualize a 4,000 lb auto parallel parking next to or navigating around a child playing hopscotch.

Snow Removal

Does anyone know of a reliable snow removal service for a small 6 unit condo building?

  • id recommend SGS. they are local rogers park guys and provide excellent service. they have several trucks and drivers so they are reliable and fair with their pricing.
    you can contact Frank (773) 807-1528 or Mike (773) 406-4267.

  • I Had To Say It Reality does not equal negativity.

    Maybe ask your neighbors who they use? I often wondered why one company (or only a few) can't do it all in one-fell-swoop rather than converge like a helicopter raid as the various leaf blower ninjas do on a beautiful Summer morning. Maybe they'd offer a large group discount if the neighbors all got together (?).

Walking Dogs Off Leash in NW Edgewater Glen

There seems to be a little upsurge in this along/around Glenwood, Rosemont, and Wayne.
A neighbor mentioned that she's having difficulty walking her dog who is leash aggressive because they are often surprised by dogs trotting down the street half a block or so ahead of their owners. I haven't had this experience recently, but I usually try to walk my dog when other people aren't out with theirs because mine is a rescue who is terrified by strangers.

Thoughts? Observations?

  • Im going to state the obvious. Call Animal Control right away and give detailed description so they can talk to the owners of the pets. I think the first time is a warning and the second is a ticket.

  • DK Living and Playing in Chicago

    Is it 311 also or?
