Does anyone know a reasonable place in Edison Park or nearby to get a lamp rewired? Doing it myself is not an option. Thanks.

    They are next to the Dunkin Donuts on Irving Park Road. I got all of my electrical supplies and lighting from them, including a couple custom lamps. I worked in the electrical trade for over 30 years. This is the place to go.

Is anyone going to the zoning meeting on the 4th? I keep asking our Alderman if they did a congestion study, and I still have no answer. I can't make the meeting due to work. If anyone attends, please ask about a congestion study.

Edison Park Condo Proposal Shot Down By Advisory Committee

The vote cemented a recommendation to Ald. Anthony Napolitano (41st) that he deny the developers' request for a zoning change, which would have allowed them to build 30 condos and 4,750 square feet of office space at 6655 N. Oliphant Ave. Napolitano had vowed to follow the committee's signal.

    i have to commend all the EP residents for taking time out of their schedules to go to these meetings to show opposition.

    i was a little puzzled that people would vote "yes" to the development. still shaking my head.

    i was even more puzzled that a woman who lives in Norwood Park voted "yes" and said the building would "beautify" the neighborhood??

    what does she care? shes a full Metra stop away.

    my only conclusion is that the people that voted "yes" have some sort of financial interest and it would benefit them.

    nice job EP residents for going to the meetings.

Dear santa (ohare noise commission, our aldermen and women and our mayor)

I'd really like the windows, doors, insulation, etc that were promised over two years ago. Our area was approved, phase 17, I went to the meeting, they came and measured and it's been over nine months (sometime maybe in March?) since I've heard BOO. That letter said they'd get to it fall of 2016. Well Happy New Year....

I'd really like the windows, doors, insulation, etc that were promised over two years ago. Our area was approved, phase 17, I went to the meeting, they came and measured and it's been over nine months (sometime maybe in March?) since I've heard BOO. That letter said they'd get to it fall of 2016. Well Happy New Year....

I know I bought in this area, I knew OHare was there but what I didn't realize were all of the new runways going in. Also that they discontinued the last six months of turn taking which has helped with the noise. This last week I've been woken up at 430 by monster jets every day.

It would be nice to hear something, anything. A tax rebate check of 175$ really isn't enough to shut me up.

I almost put my own new windows in but then we were approved so instead I'm waiting. And waiting. And waiting.

Thanks for any update!

Cul-de-sac on touhy and overhill

Let's unite the community! Done deal!

  • Never say never.

  • GOOD LUCK........Doherty had us do a petition for a one way on Oliphant, which is way more narrow than Overhill....
    ...said we needed 75% or more for it to be done....we had 85%....but he said we couldn't do it...gave us speed humps instead and a no left turn off of Canfield 3-6...which is never enforced!!

  • For those who celebrate Christmas (birth of Jesus Christ),and can spend time with their loved ones and rejoice, Fantastic!
    And simply for those who Choose not to celebrate or because they do not believe so be that as well.

    All in all, there has not always been as many restaurants or stores open during this holiday season. Unfortunately, there are many professions that still have to work. But that does not mean everyone is ungrateful for this fact.

    Hope you all have a safe&peaceful rest of The Holiday Season! 🙏🏼✌🏼️
