Candidates want higher wages, cheaper housing in 46th Ward

And “when the new owner bough the Chateau Apartments (3838 N. Broadway), the residents there paid zero rent and Catholic Charities helped them find other units that didn’t have bedbugs. The owner bought new mattresses for them when they did move and helped them with their moving expenses."

Ald. James Cappleman [46th] battled for a second term against two challengers at a Jan. 22 46th Ward candidates’ forum at Demera Restaurant, 4801 N. Broadway.

...The housing we did lose was market rate. Extremely substandard, The Norman Apartments (1325 W. Wilson) was already 40% vacant. And Lawrence House (1020 W. Lawrence) had hundreds of code violations...

...Extremely substandard, The Norman Apartments (1325 W. Wilson) was already 40% vacant. And Lawrence House (1020 W. Lawrence) had hundreds of code violations. I could no longer vote there because of the bedbugs...

Crawford said she’s got some ideas, but no real plan to offer at this point. “But if I’m elected, I’ll build it around key intersections, Wilson and Broadway, Lawrence and Broadway, Buena Park. Neighborhood by Neighborhood.”

Work on Broadway and Melrose

Does anyone know that they are putting up on the corner of Broadway and Melrose?

There have been 3 huge, wooden poles in front of Nettelhorst for a couple of days, and now there is a crew out there. When I asked if it was a light of some sort, I was mumbled at and then ignored. The school doesn't know anything.

Diversey / Clark / Broadway Related Issues

I invite you to use this post to raise and discuss issues related to or near the Lincoln Park / Lakeview intersection of Diversey, Clark, and Broadway.

New issues include four proposed developments including three residential high-rises and one hotel on the 500 and 600 blocks of Diversey.

Current and previous Everyblock posts have included issues related to vacant storefronts, problems with Panera Cares, and crime and vagrancy on Diversey and Clark. Some of these issues received previous attention and can be searched on Everyblock.

For readability, I will post links to the individual projects below.

Neighborhoods are Chicago’s greatest strength; and you are the strength of this neighborhood! Please stay involved.

Thank you.

    A level of density that makes parking a car in a given area a constant nightmare and driving a car in an area a time consuming and frightening nightmare is what solves the problem of "why don't people get rid of their cars and rely on alternate modes of transit." The population density in NYC is an example of this. It's not that people in NYC like using the MTA instead of cars; it's that using a car in NYC is so much more difficult, time consuming, and fantastically expensive that even with the constant delays, service changes, and overcrowding the MTA is still a better option.

    So if you want there to be fewer cars in the neighborhood, density is the way forward.

    Stephen,

    I understand your concern.

    In 2011, my wife was hit by a car while she crossed Clark St. to what is now the Edge Grill at Schubert. She crossed in the center of the well marked crosswalk and was hit by a car turning north from Schubert after leaving Best Buy. We are thankful the driver stopped and waited for the police and ambulance. His passenger offered help and sat with my wife.

    My wife suffered a broken jaw [resulting in a liquid-only diet for 12 weeks], tooth loss, foot problems, and other damage. Her face was so black and blue that she looked like an eggplant. The jaw has healed but more than three years later, the tooth issues continue. We must have made 40 trips to the dentist and we still haven’t gotten to the implant stage.

    This was our only incident with a car.

    But we’ve almost been run over countless times by adult bicyclists who ignore red lights, crosswalks, or ride on the sidewalks at or near Diversey, Clark, and Broadway.

    And we should all be reminded of the woman on the sidewalk at Diversey and Sheffield who was killed by a person on rollerblades.

    Pay attention when crossing the street. Look for cars, bikes, skateboards, and rollerblades. Cross with the light but still watch for cars. Put the phone away. Don’t talk when crossing the street. Sometimes it just takes 100% concentration to cross a street safely.
