Hollywood park playground is done please join us for ribbon cutting celebration saturday july 26th at 1:00 pm at playground . Alderman Lau rino will be cutting the ribbon. Please join saturday.

  • Why cut the ribbon on July 26th? I passed from there yesterday and it was full of kids playing already so really there's nothing new about it & Also there's WoodChips that we'll be causing a lot of splinters where's the soft flooring like in all the other parks? The old swing frame was never taken down only the swings were removed and replaced so whats so new about it ? There's only 2 new things there's ! It's really sad !

    I've worked in the west side for 10 years and have seen first hand how the residents have destroyed and continue to destroy their neighborhood. The few buildings/areas that were redeveloped before the housing crash have now reverted back to section 8 or CHA voucher and have turned into garbage covered crime ridden ****holes.
    I don't know what good a caps meeting will do. There are not enough police to start and the ones that are there can't force people to abide by the tenets of civil responsibility and common courtesy, or to simply use a garbage can for that matter.
    In short, I wholeheartedly believe that bringing section 8 to this neighborhood will do nothing but undermine the safety and overall quality of life of the hardworking citizens that have built it.

  • And as Section 8 continues to spread across the once beautiful, healthy and crime free neighborhoods of the far North and Northwest sides you will begin to see family's leaving. Once that starts, it is the beginning of the end. The last few bastions of quality living within Chicago will be no more.
