Storm drains overflowing everywhere

Is the city not cleaning out storm drains regularly? The storm drains in my area frequently overflow and flood the streets and intersections, making driving and parking difficult. Kedvale and Keystone between Irving and Montrose, Berteau and Belle Plaine between Keeler and Pulaski. How do I get this addressed?

    There is a big difference in how early they stop street sweeping leaves the past couple years. And what I've mainly seen are those that have fallen from the trees not swept or blown by residents. Then it rains and you get that thick paste made of leaves. Also seems that where new paving has been done, water really accumulates. Maybe on purpose to prevent flooding?

Old Irving: Safe?

Hi,

I'm considering moving to Old Irving Park, and am wondering about safety. Do you feel safe walking around the neighborhood in the evening? Also, I saw on the Chicago Tribune homicide tracker that there have been 3 murders to date in the area, and only 6 total last year. Seems like crime is becoming more of a problem.

Specifically, I'm curious about the area south of Irving, north of Addison, and west of the freeway to Kilbourn.

Thanks in advance for your input.

    I've lived in Old Irving Park for 12 years now and have lived in several different areas of the city in my 31 years living in Chicago, and this is by far the best neighborhood you could live in. The community is very involved and looks out for each other. We have the OIPA, Old Irving Park association that publishes its own monthly newsletter, and we have the garden club, the historic society club and lots of events for families and children. I'm a realtor of 14 years and I travel all over the city & near suburbs, and so for my line of work, I feel I am also perfectly centrally located. I can get into Lakeview, or Bucktown for example quickly, or even downtown fairly quickly thanks to Elston and or jumping on 90/94. I LOVE where I live! And I love introducing my clients to Old Irving park! If you ever need help, feel free to reach out! www.jenniferbaron.com

    I lived on Keeler between Irving and Addison about 7 years ago and never had any problems. Great little pocket neighborhood!

Still waiting....

Does anyone know what's going on with the Bank of America development project at Irving/Cicero and the other location west of Cicero? These projects have been talked about for three years or more and the larger bank shut down over a year ago and still no activity. Have these developers backed out? I hope Alderman Arena hasn't forgotten about us...
