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'm fed up with the Edison Park Elementary students, faculty, and parents and the Res High...

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.

    Local School Council. In fact, you should run as the community representative. How long have you had a Chicago Public School as a neighbor? I'm surprised that you don't know these things.

    We took over this house after our mother died. Our father was the original contractor on this house when it was built in 1958. We have lived here from it's original build. Our mother, until her death 7 years ago, was treated the same way we are. In fact, the day she died, I couldn't get her out of our driveway in the car because it was blocked by the cars of students and parents picking up their children. No one would let me out of the driveway to take her to the emergency room. I am very interested in the Local School Council

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 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.....

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.

  • A few months ago I found a letter in my front lawn landscaping, it looked like it had been there for a while. I just went ahead and delivered it to the address on it considering the mail carrier was unable to do it.

  • radiochck Trying to escape

    I've been missing things for awhile now. I'm thinking that the staff at the post office have been taking things. I have mentioned it to them and have received nothing but nastiness and attitude from them.

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.
