Mail delivery issues

Is anyone having issues with their mail delivery? I am getting pieces of other peoples mail delivered along with mine, and now I know that my mail is not being delivered properly as I received a past due notice from ComEd for a bill I never received. I always take the wrongly delivered mail to the correct house if close by, or to the mailbox for proper delivery. I have complained to the post office and would encourage others to do the same if they are having issues as their errors are going to cost the community in late fees and declining credit scores.

    We get a good mail person then they leave. I asked a couple of them why they leave and they said because the postmaster is very difficult to work for. So much so they would rather leave than work for him.

  • ep girl EP Bhawk fan

    No mail at all yesterday. We had this happen several months ago as well. We were receiving our mail at 9:30 at night, then not for a few days, then tons of mail all on one day.

Edison Park Elementary 5K

I thought that the neighborhood had to be petitioned to be able to have events that closes down our streets and inconveniencing the people who live in the direct areas they are holding this event. If we have to have a majority petition of neighbors to have a block party, the school should have to do the same with ALL homes and streets involved.

I thought that the neighborhood had to be petitioned to be able to have events that closes down our streets and inconveniencing the people who live in the direct areas they are holding this event. If we have to have a majority petition of neighbors to have a block party, the school should have to do the same with ALL homes and streets involved. I'm fed up with the Edison Park Elementary students, faculty, and parents and the Res High School students using my yard as if they owned it and no respect for the ACCUAL owners. And when they are asked to use the sidewalk, all I get is foul mouthed adults and students with rude comments and their trash all over my yard.

  • Got it! You're right, it is. Thank you for providing us with this information.

  • This thread is a discussion about the 5k. Please start a new one to argue arbitrary neighborhood boundaries. Thanks

The "gulley" fenced in?

Does anybody know the whole story behind the now fenced-in area of the vacant lot at the end of the 7700 block of Clarence Ave. where it adjoins the 6200 block of N.Ozanam Ave? This is the block that I grew up on. We always called this vacant lot "The Gulley". Don't know who originally came up with that moniker, but all the neighbors have called it that through the years.

Does anybody know the whole story behind the now fenced-in area of the vacant lot at the end of the 7700 block of Clarence Ave. where it adjoins the 6200 block of N.Ozanam Ave? This is the block that I grew up on. We always called this vacant lot "The Gulley". Don't know who originally came up with that moniker, but all the neighbors have called it that through the years. Anyway, there were once some really nice big old trees on that lot, and a sandbox where we used to play as kids (great) and we even froze the area over during the winder to play ice hockey on it! (There was a fireman who lived around there that set us up with a fire hose to tap the hydrant right there.) Those were the days! And i know those days are long gone. Anyway-- fast forward to today. The area has now very recently been FENCED IN. It's super-ugly now. I know this lot is actually owned by the people in the house up on the hill off of Canfield, so it's really (technically) just their big "back yard" but it's got to be the most unusual city lot in all creation. We got lucky all though the decades because the same woman owned that property all that time and did nothing with it. And, that empty lot really MADE that block because it was a very nice quiet enclave. Ideally (in my mind, anyway), the city would buy that lot back and turn it into a park. But now, instead, the people who now own that property cut all the trees down, turned over all the dirt with dump trucks, made a mud pit out of it and now fenced it in! As a result, the poor people on Clarence Ave across from this lot now have 1/2 width of a street that you can't even turn around on with your car. This has got to hurt property values. Does anybody know anything about the people who now own this house on the hill plus the lot and/or know anything about this situation at all?
Just curious as I mourn the death of "The Gulley"...

  • It was for sale maybe 4 years ago. Someone obviously bought it. Strange lot to do much with due to lack of alley access. I'll have to drive back over there to see what is going on.

Chicago

Anyone recommend a reliable cab service from Edision/Norwood park to O'Hare. Most cabbies don't like this short route.

  • I agree with some above. Flash Cab or Park Ridge Cab. Both are very reliable and do a lot of short neighborhood trips.

  • Ok folks if your in the city limit NO reason to call Park Ridge or Niles. Flash will pick up anywhere in the city and it's cheaper

Train crossing gates and signals

Does anyone know why the crossing gates were down and the signals going continuously for over 30 minutes in Edison Park yesterday around 4pm?
I drove around forever until I finally ended up driving down to Cumberland and Touhy to get around the mess.

  • This is the answer I got from the email that i sent to the 41st ward office:
    According to Union Pacific, Wednesday evening important railroad equipment was tampered with somewhere between the Edison Park area and Park Ridge. This action caused the gates at each crossing to malfunction, thus creating a headache for many motorists in the area. Union Pacific, the ICC and the local authorities are all investigating this matter.

  • Holly Holly

    They have been trying to repair those gates for weeks! I'm in the condo building right there and have to listen to the trains blowing their horns during all this!

O'Connor claims Victory?

Alderman O'Connor is bragging she was key in American Airlines eliminating the noisy MD-80 aircraft. I have news for for you, American started reducing the fleet of MD-80's in 2012. In 2013 they got rid of 39 in favor of 737-800's. Nice try.

  • Cliff in Edison Park Edison Park resident

    I was done with O'Connor when she held the town hall meetings about the flooding and had all these officials there to tell all of us flood victims that it was OUR fault that our homes flooded. She proved she had no idea what so ever on what to do or how to deal with people.

  • Question: Do we REALLY need 50 aldercreatures? Really? They are here to represent our neighborhood, but yet only a few actually get off their dead....and ring a doorbell or two to hear...I'm sorry, listen to what we have to say. To listen to our concerns, however, I have lived in...

    Question: Do we REALLY need 50 aldercreatures? Really? They are here to represent our neighborhood, but yet only a few actually get off their dead....and ring a doorbell or two to hear...I'm sorry, listen to what we have to say. To listen to our concerns, however, I have lived in Norwood Park for over 15 years and I NEVER....yes, never had my aldercreature ring my doorbell. Mary said Harlem was going to be paved to perfection. HA! The truck and cars still use it as a highway. Some speeding by at 60mph! The trucks bounce around because the sewers caps are not even with the new pavement. Our alley has pot holes in it and flood every time....yes, every time it rains. I have an example of how the city works....had a sewer in front of the house that kept flooding the street. I reported every time it did..FOR THREE YEARS! Then they Streets and San) came out and said everything was fine. No blockage. Then it literally rained the next day only to flood again! Another twelve months of calling and again S&S came out. This time I had the guy go into the sewer to find that it was blocked. Now...so far it hasn't flooded the street. My point is no one in the city that works listens to us taxpayers! NO ONE....and the airport noise??....HA! heard the FAA said they were not going to do another study because the first and only one was sufficient....and Rahm said he wasn't gonna change anything anyhow....so again...WHO IS ON OUR SIDE??.....let me take a guess.....

Water Bill

I'm not metered and received a water bill over $400. Anyone know why? Usually it's around $160, twice a year. Did I miss a notice? Appreciate any input. I'll call the city tomorrow, but I'm not looking forward to it. A bit frustrated with how 'things,' for lack of a better word, are being run around here lately. Maybe I'll just double up my concern about the plane noise and the water bill and see if the Alderman/woman answers.

  • Cliff in Edison Park Edison Park resident

    have two neighbors who do that as well as park their cars over the sidewalk so you have no choice but to walk in the street. I've called the police on both situations and they do nothing.

  • if the police come and nothing happens, call again and tell the operator that police came and left, no citation was written and the problem still exists. The second call usually gets a ticket.
