Are there any defined ordinances in Chicago pertaining to renting a home for private events

I am curious if anyone knows whether a home can be rented for a private event like a small wedding, baby shower, or family reunion.

I realize there are potential party related issues with noise, etc., but there are many websites that promote renting a private residence for special occasions and many people do this.

I just want to know if there are any specific ordinances or laws that address this. I would love to hear from any employees of the city, lawyers or residents with any knowledge or experience on the matter.

Thanks!

    Hello,
    You need to speak with your insurance agent! There are serious liability issues related to leasing out any space - For example if someone has a simple slip and fall accident who do you think they will sue? YOU. You could lose your property over such a situation. Who do you hold liable for damage to your property if that occurs, etc...

    Great point about insurance. Since my place is regularly used for commercial shoots I loaded up on all kinds of use related insurance. Even though everyone that films provides insurance, it makes me nervous.

    Great point about insurance. Since my place is regularly used for commercial shoots I loaded up on all kinds of use related insurance. Even though everyone that films provides insurance, it makes me nervous.

    As for alcohol and all that, I would never even think about selling anything. We are talking more along the lines of a family having a reunion and needing more space than they have at home and bringing their own food and refreshments.

    Regardless, I don't think there is any way to do this above the table and I am not at a point in life where I enjoy attempts at subterfuge, but there seems to be a lot of demand for people wanting to celebrate private events in a more homelike setting, as opposed to a banquet hall or restaurant.

    Thanks again everyone for all the insight.

    Fruits and veggies (and perhaps a Nutella-stuffed crepe) are obvious choices at the farmers market, but if you're leaving without a stash of fresh herbs, you're really missing out. From basil to epazote, homegrown herbs can add a punch of flavor to whatever's on this week's menu.

The Different Flavors of Logan Square's Latest Proposal

...light from the Chicago Plan Commission to move forward with this plan, the property at 2328 North California Avenue would remain idle for the next year...

    The Different Flavors of Logan Square's Latest Proposal
    Over the last two years, a proposal for a new development in Logan Square has gone through several iterations (and colors).
    http://chicago.curbed.com

  • That green look is bit arrogant and is not going to age well.

  • It is better than the abandoned carwash and junky furniture store that stand there now. I'm not fond of the color, but it's an improvement for sure. Maybe all these new apts. will flood the market and rents will drop.

  • It'll be better than the unoccupied old dilapidated eyesores that are currently standing. And as far as the " community garden ",,,the only things growing were weeds and rats.

  • Garden status sad but true. Too bad it wasn't taken over/purchased by someone/group to make it a successful garden.

Looking for advice, opinions on Good Schools in Logan Square

So being that I am a NY native I do not have a lot of knowledge on what schools are good in this area. I have done some research but looking for some fellow neighbor parents advise and suggestions.
I have a 3 yr old so looking into schools for next fall. Thanks!!

  • Definitely Goethe Elementary. Both of my kids have attended since PreK. Staff is wonderful, so caring! Best school in the neighborhood!

  • Bungalow Gal in Hermosa Hermosa resident, Bungalow owner

    Logan Square is a large area. Major cross streets? And are you looking for private or Chicago Public Schoos/CPS (free)? For CPS, your location is important since many are neighborhood schools and you may/may not rank high in priority for a spot (with ~1 miles) for some. Any more details you can add will get you more relevant answers to your situation.

here is a message from Pesches garden center in des plaines....
Neonicotinoids

At Pesche's, our roots started almost 100 years ago, with growing flowers. Today, we continue to follow the practices of growing and/or selling the best variety and quality flowers, plants, trees, shrubs and vegetables. For three generations, as growers, Pesche's strives to be stewards of an ecologically balanced approach to growing plants.

Pesche's is very aware of issues and questions concerning the use of neonicotinoids and other insecticides. Neonicotinoids are systemic chemicals, which are absorbed into the plant's vascular system, leaving the entire plant toxic to both target and non-target insects. The most notable victims of neonicotinoid exposure are pollinator species (native bees, such as bumblebees and solitary bees), which perform a key role in over one-third of our food system. Pesche's refrains from using neonics on any bedding plants, veggies, and herbs in our production operation. This year, Pesche's has stopped carrying all products intended for outdoor use that contains neonicotinoids and is the only Garden Center in the Chicago area that has removed neonicotinoid containing products from retail shelves. The seed sources from which our plants come from are neonic free. We are working with our vendors to reduce and eventually make sure everything is neonic free. We do everything possible to minimize the use of all pesticides, Fungicides and growth hormones in our production greenhouses.

Being aware of the issues associated with the multiple and diverse concerns from the decrease of the bee population and colonization collapse, neonics may be one of many contributing factors to this complex and diverse problem. The importance of pollinators in our environment is unchallenged and Pesche's will continue to do our part to help you find the right plants to attract pollinators and other beneficial insects.

  • I saw County Line Greenhouse on FB and contacted them about neonics in their plants. They told me they follow the Purdue University guidelines where they use them very early in the growth stage and they wear off before the bees are out and about. I don't know enough to refute the guidelines but thought I would share.

  • I know that there are different opinions on all this but we have to remember that France COMPLETELY banned them for the whole company recently; both Italy and France have had partial bans for at least 10 years...

Motorcycle/Scooter mechanic

Hello all,

I have a scooter and used to take it to the guys in the alley behind the IHOP at Diversey/California. I just got the scooter out of winter storage and the shop seems to have closed there is a sign on the door that says shop moved no further info. I was wondering if anyone else has a local mechanic that works on scooters? I used to take my motorcycle to AMR but that seems to have closed as well. If anyone has a recommendation it would be appreciated.

MANY cars, traveling quickly, near Haas Park, Friday 10:30 PM

For past 20 minutes, there have probably 100 cars drive down the alley right alongside Haas Park (to the north, parallel to Fullerton). I live nearby and cannot see Washtenaw block at any point. Cars are turning into the alley off of Washtenaw intentionally, even the alley goes nowhere--there's a barrier that causes cars to travel north on the alley sandwiched between Washtenaw and Fairfield, letting cars out on one-way-east Altgeld. What's going on?

  • Clyde in Logan Square Preservationist Clyde

    The cars have subsided. It was fast and furious for about 40 minutes!

  • Around 11 last night from California I saw what looked like a big accident response on Fullerton in front of the Haas park field house, I wonder if cars unable to continue down Fullerton were trying to cut through
