Help 5150 Northwest Hwy Meet Community Needs

The plan may not be perfect yet, and we hope there is room for discussion and improvement. By signing, we indicate our support for responsible development of the property at 5150 N. Northwest Highway, Chicago, as a mixed income residential property, targeted to veterans. This property is currently designed to meet several needs, primarily a shortage of affordable, transit-oriented rental properties in Jefferson Park (and Chicago as a whole). The developer intends to have amenities and resources for its residents including onsite social services.

    Daniel D- you've got it! That's exactly what they are doing, and it's moving forward at breakneck speed (basically fight is over 16 March). Only legal action can stop this- fix is in with the alderman already, so donate to the go fund me to support legal costs if you want to stop it. And then vote for a better alderman next time (although Arena clearly doesn't intend to run)

Help support St. Juliana Fine Arts!

If you're looking for a way to celebrate Fat Tuesday, head over to the Ram in Rosemont tomorrow (2/28) between 4-9pm. They will be donating 10% of all sales to the SJS Fine Arts Association. We will use the funds for costumes and props for our spring musical, Lion King Jr. (3/24-3/26).Thanks!

Has anyone ever used this app to buy or sell products? It encourages you to use cash for transactions and for buyers/sellers to meet in public places. You do not reveal your actual address.

  • I've used it a couple of times. I like the virtual garage sales better but it's better than Craigslist. It's very limited on the information you can post, but you can post 4 photos. I always snap a pic of my own "rules" as the last photo(i.e. Cash only, pickup only, pickup times, etc...).

Tony & Millie's Italian Ice Bar Readying Year-Round Edison Park Shop

From a 1,200 square-foot storefront attached to the Edison Park Inn, 6709 N. Olmsted Avenue, owner John Geslicki and his family will sell gelato, Italian ice, and, for the first time this year, bags of coffee grounds.

After decades of trips to Mario's Italian Lemonade, 1066 W. Taylor St., Geslicki was itching to bring the frozen treat back to his native Northwest Side, he said.

In regards to the increased crime in District 16

Yes, our officers have been pulled from our district. Although we pay higher taxes than the district where our officers have been sent. And that is not fair for our district. Also a few months ago CBS, channel 2, news not only let the viewing area know that district 16 is low on police officers they also put a map and highlighted the whole district for all of the criminals to see. So disgusted with the lack of protection and the amount of criminal activities in our neighborhood. Tired of having to lock all the locks on her doors while we're sitting in our own home !

  • Natmart live in the neighborhood for 16 years.

    With the property tax bill just arriving, and the huge increase yet again. What are our taxes going to? Our streets are bad, schools are not the best and we have an increase of crime. Tired of our taxes padding politicians pockets

  • How about the ridiculous bag tax that went into effect last week. Where's that money going?
