Entire 2700 block N Milwaukee between Spaulding & Sawyer downzoned by Alderman Rosa

Entire 1.6 acre block from Harding Tavern to Heavenly Ice Cream 2664-2734 N Milwaukee and 2657-2667 N Spaulding down zoned by Alderman Carlos Rosa to C1-1 from C1-3. This allows Rosa to control any new development on huge property which is For Sale according to Crains. C1-1 allows modest density and only 38 ft tall. C1-3 allowed 80 ft tall towers and way more units (apartments / condos) with Transit Oriented Development density bonus. No TOD bonus with C1-1 reduced zoning. https://chicago.councilmatic.org/legislation/o-2016-8731/

Need Electrician to Wire Garage for Electric Car Charging

Looking for recommendations on an electrician that can wire our garage with an outlet suitable for electric car charging. As far as I know we just need a standard 240v outlet, but the wiring to our garage is pretty old, so some re-wiring may be needed. I feel kind of unfamiliar with this terrain, but know that we need someone certified by the Illinois Commerce Commission in order to qualify for the state rebate program. Any recommendations??

Logan Square Parent trying to figure out elementary school options

Hey fellow Logan Square parents. I'm looking for some guidance about local public schools. Would love some advice about navigating whether my neighborhood school, Brentano, is the best option or if other area magnets or even private options are worth seeking out and how hard it is to get into them. Any advice or a recommendation for someone to call who could provide guidance would be appreciated. Thanks!

  • Can anyone tell me if there is any preference for a sibling in the neighborhood schools, i.e. Goethe or brentano? I want to be sure if one kid gets in through lottery that the other would have a good chance, and I hear conflicting answers. Sorry to sidetrack this post but hoping someone knows

  • I don't know about Brentano. As far as I know, Goethe is still an open enrollment school - you don't have to lotto in. We don't live in the school area, my first child didn't get into any of the lotto schools, so that's how we ended up at Goethe....

    I don't know about Brentano. As far as I know, Goethe is still an open enrollment school - you don't have to lotto in. We don't live in the school area, my first child didn't get into any of the lotto schools, so that's how we ended up at Goethe. There is a sibling preference, so if the classes were full, my other children are prioritized. Again, I feel like we ended up in the best possible situation even though at the time, we didn't know it was. In fact, we skipped the selective enrollment school testing for my second child since we are so happy with Goethe and don't want to send him to a different school.

    COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE - A quick-thinking CTA bus driver slammed on her brakes, locked her doors and called police Wednesday after spotting a 79-year-old passenger molesting a 14-year-old girl, prosecutors said. Suspect Carlos De La Torre, 79, was still able to escape after a fellow passenger told him how to use an emergency lever, Assistant State's Attorney Joseph Carlson said Thursday.

German Shepherd running free / Lyndale and Drake

Noticed a big and friendly German shepherd walking by itself up and down the corner of Drake and Lyndale. The dog came into the little park area down there, and was chilling there last I saw.

Seemed friendly but didn't want to be caught - if you see a post about a missing dog, pass it on. Thanks!
