Junta COMUNITARIA: ANTI-GENTRIFICACION IN PILSEN!!!

Just passing this along, the errors make it kinda laughable. Also how long has Honky Tonk been in the neighborhood and how long has La Catrina?

Dusek’s, Punchbowl, Honkeytonk, Lagunitas Brewery, Pilsen Vintage, Comet Vintage, Knee Deep Vintage, Bowtruss coffee, Beurrage French Bakery, Sip and Splash, are just a handful of the many gentrifying businesses that dot our community. NOW the newest coming attractions to Pilsen: 400 LUXURY CONDOS and rumors of STARBUCKS and ANOTHER coffee and pastry shop, DOLLOPS. Something needs to be done before the damage is irreversible to the working class immigrant culture of this community.

Pilsen dog park needed

New gal here and decided to post regarding a need for a dog park in Pilsen. There are doggies everywhere!

  • Hello everyone,

    Hello everyone,

    I am a research assistant at Adler University School of Professional Psychology in the Institute of Social Exclusion. We just finished completing a Health Impact Assessment of the shuttered Crawford and Fisk plants located in the Pilsen/Little Village neighborhoods. We are focusing on the use of open space and the lack of access to green space in these neighborhoods. Right now we are entering the monitoring stage of the assessment and are trying to identify listening events in which we can attend and find out what the community is saying in regards to plans for development.

    I have been a resident of Pilsen and am now a resident of Bridgeport. I am also a dog owner and have definitely felt that there is a need for a dog park; more so in Pilsen than Bridgeport. However, I have also heard arguments against such things because of issues associated with gentrification. I am not taking a stance either way however we definitely want to hear what the community is talking about. If any of you know of local events or meetings related to issues of open space I would love to know about them.

    I can be reached at sdodds2@uic.edu.

    I have really enjoyed hearing all of your opinions and am grateful to know there is such passion for community development in these neighborhoods.

  • Yes I agree Pilsen is in need of a dog park. I live across the street from Dvorak Park, which is on the list of getting a grant for renovations. I feel the park is big enough to accommodate a dog park, specifically there is a section next to the pool, which is not utilized. It only has a sand box which honestly I don't see anyone ever use or for that matter want to use. I believe someone has started a petition.
