Article from Taste of Park Ridge - 200 teens gather and attack a man

I know this is Park Ridge, but it seems to be the norm for any fest in the area. Every year during Edison Park Fest, teens gather at Olympia Park in such great numbers it's unbelievable. Last year, a few kids threw beer cans at us while we were sitting in our front yard. and later damaged our fence. They also overturned the large dumpster by the Park District building. I hope it's controlled this year. This article is disturbing - http://www.myfoxchicago.com/story/26034602/teens-charged-with-attacking-man-near-taste-of-park-ridge

  • It is your right to not attend the Fest. Norwood Park will be having a 4 day carnival beginning Aug 21. For every five people who don't like the Fest, there are ten who do. I am not hiding behind any fake name on this site. Feel free to email info@edisonpark.com, call 773-631-0063, or stop by my office located in the ep train station. Get involved in your community instead of just complaining. There are lots of ways to do this.

    My family and I just moved to Edison Park in the Spring from Lincoln Park and I can't imagine this festival being as bad as the festivals in my old neighborhood. We had to deal with most of the manageable complaints on this thread INCLUDING prostitution, muggings, stabbings and drug dealing. I think that if neighbors are concerned about people trespassing onto their properties that weekend, they should put up "No Trespassing" signs. Maybe even include" Your Activity May Be Recorded" on the signs. They should also leave their outside lights on at night even the light in your livingroom so they think you're up. Talking to the kids (in a civil and respectful manner) that are just hanging out before they get out of control may also help. I'm not for or against this festival since I've never attended or experienced the nuisance that comes with it. I'm just saying that things can be a lot worse and I hope the organizers can better control the crowd before things get a lot worse as time goes by.

Contractor / Handyman needed for drywall job

We are looking to enclose a loft space to create an additional bedroom on the 2nd floor of our home. There is already a closet in the space, so I think it would be a fairly small job, just putting up two walls and minor electrical work to move a ceiling fan. Afraid it's too small for a larger contractor, although after the bedroom is complete our next project is to completely finish the basement, so if they do a good job on the loft, could lead to the basement project. Flexible time frame... we are in Edison Park. Any recommendations?

Overhill to become one-way southbound

Overhill ave will become one-way southbound from N/W Hwy to Owen in the near future to reduce traffic on Overhill.
If you'd ask me, it should be one-way from N/W Hwy to Touhy. Why is Edison Park free of one-way streets anyway? Cars constantly getting mirrors broken off because of two cars squeezing though.
Please don't say people are going to go faster if it was. Cars speed down here constantly at 40mph plus. And by the way, Get off the cell phone while driving!!!

  • Totally agree that there should be a majority of one-way streets.

  • Jen

    I agree that more streets should be one way. I inquired a few years back with the previous alderman and they were against it. They said you had to get not only your street to agree but the surrounding streets, and do traffic studies yadayadayada. Our old neighborhood had 90%...

    I agree that more streets should be one way. I inquired a few years back with the previous alderman and they were against it. They said you had to get not only your street to agree but the surrounding streets, and do traffic studies yadayadayada. Our old neighborhood had 90% one way streets and it was great. Our street was even one way south for a block and then switched to one way north to prevent cut-thru traffic. I have seen more cars hit because the streets are so narrow, and if you park with your wheels on the curb you risk a ticket. I would love to know what Overhill had to do to get this change.

Rude Neighborhood People with Dogs

I live on the corner of Oriole/Jarvis and I am fed up with the rude dog owners who walk their dog past my house and let them deposit feces on my lawn and on the sidewalk outside of my gate to my yard. The City of Chicago Dog Ordinance reads as follows:

7-12-420 Removal of excrement. No person shall appear with a pet upon the public ways or within public places or upon the property of another, absent that person's...

I live on the corner of Oriole/Jarvis and I am fed up with the rude dog owners who walk their dog past my house and let them deposit feces on my lawn and on the sidewalk outside of my gate to my yard. The City of Chicago Dog Ordinance reads as follows:

7-12-420 Removal of excrement. No person shall appear with a pet upon the public ways or within public places or upon the property of another, absent that person's consent, without some means for the removal of excrement; nor shall any person fail to remove any excrement deposited by such pet. This section shall not apply to a blind person while walking his or her guide dog.
Any person found to have been in violation of this section shall be fined not less than $50.00 nor more than $500.00 for each offense.

I am tired of stepping in your dogs feces when I mow my lawn and fed up with stepping in it when I go outside my gate on the sidewalk. I plan on making sure that any person found violating this City of Chicago Law will be punished in accordance with the fines stated above. Don't say you haven't been warned.

  • Last fall I busted a guy letting his dog "doo" his business on my lawn. I caught it on my surveillance camera. Next day I saw the same guy and confronted him. I handed him a bag and he picked it up and exclaimed "I'm never coming down this block again!" Well good riddance!

  • Yesterday I was walking my two 85 pound monsters and one suddenly dropped a load on someone's front lawn. I immediately picked it up, making sure to get every bit of it. The lady that lived there came out and thanked me for picking it up. I said I would...

    Yesterday I was walking my two 85 pound monsters and one suddenly dropped a load on someone's front lawn. I immediately picked it up, making sure to get every bit of it. The lady that lived there came out and thanked me for picking it up. I said I would NEVER leave this here! I hate when other people are irresponsible and lazy. I usually bring an entire roll of bags with me when we head out. I try to have them do their business in an alley or the park so it's not messing up a beautifully manicured lawn, but they are dogs and you really can't control it. I won't even throw the bags away in someone else's garbage can either. I wait until I get home or I'll throw it in a public garbage can at the park.

    Thank You to all the responsible dog parents out there!

Pepper Spray

Is it legal to carry and use pepper spray in Chicago? After the recent L robberies that have been in the news, I am thinking of getting some.

Dumpster on Oliphant and NW Hwy

Is this for the former Larsen Drug/Ruby D and Me?

  • Edison Park CJM EP Neighbor

    The unofficial rumor I've heard from a waitress at the curragh is that they are remodeling the space to move their breakfast café Lexi Lou to.

    I have also asked the construction guys working and they said they're working on a breakfast place.

    Once again these are just rumors that I've heard.
