We need you to bring: snacks/food to share, drinks to share, some chairs, some tables and we still need a few pallets to stand on for our presentation. Bring what you have - we are community and everybody pitches in to make things go. Thank you for what you will do!

And here's a very cool radio interview with Jean-Luc, the idea man behind NCP. Listen up Generation Z. http://chirpradio.org/podcasts/genz

Massive Community Celebration - The Neighborhood Connection Project is Finished!! - Sat, 8/29

After 5 1/2 years, this is it folks - the Neighborhood Connection Project (NCP) is now finished. My son Jean-Luc and I were out yesterday sharing the news with neighbors (he even missed the Cubs game to spread the word) and look for more people coming around this week to do the same. Downtown Edgebrook businesses are also helping to pass out our NCP celebration postcards with all the details. In case you do not get one, here's the info:...

Downtown Edgebrook businesses are also helping to pass out our NCP celebration postcards with all the details. In case you do not get one, here's the info:

NCP Final Community Celebration - Saturday, August 29, 9am-12pm at the Metra Underpass at Kinzua, Hiawatha and Lehigh. ALL are invited no matter how much you did, how much you gave or how much you shared or if you did anything at all - we are community. We'll spend time taking in the completed mural and visiting with each other as neighbors.

Then, about midway through the time (10-10:30am) we'll gather together to say a few words, share some stories and keep building community - that's what NCP is all about anyway - a citizen-led initiative to build community.

What we need from you is...you!

What else we need from you is...a podium (do you have one?), outdoor microphone and speaker (can you help us out here?), a few pallets to stand on (can you bring 2-3 over?), tables (5-6), chairs (40), food and drink (enough to share!). This is community so we need a bunch of neighbors to help out here. Can you do it? Bring what you can and we'll figure it out when everybody arrives.

More info or questions? Contact Jac Charlier at jac.charlier@gmail.com or Gina Metelica at gina.metelica.com. More about NCP is on the attached pic showing our history (also a part of the mural itself!) and even more is on Facebook at Neighborhood Connection Project.

FAiR Members and Supporters: Quiet O'Hare noise at night? Aviation commissioner says she'll try

Following Community Conversation #2 on Monday night, we finally appear to have some movement. http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20150720/news/150729864/

    Quiet O'Hare noise at night? Aviation commissioner says she'll try
    A sit-down meeting between Chicago aviation officials and an O'Hare anti-noise watchdog group Monday resulted in pledges from the airport chief to try to reduce noise at night and appeals from residents to keep diagonal runways open. As part of a shift to a parallel runway system, O'Hare switched to an east/west flight pattern in October 2013, and complaints started skyrocketing.
