PPNA supports Central/Lawerence Starbucks?

We are wondering if the PPNA is supporting the Central/Lawerence Starbucks?

  • This is very interesting to see if the PPNA does/doesn't support this project. They didn't want the Irving/central one because of accidents that happened right by Lawrence\central!!!! With this decision, they are going to look dumb!

  • I am guessing that they will support it since it will replace a food establishment business that was already there, and probably promote more bicycle and pedestrian traffic then a chicken/carryout/catering restaurant.

    the other location at irving and central did not have a pre existing business so determining traffic would be a prediction at best, it is a troubled intersection as it is and it could go either way what effect it would have on traffic.

Developers in Portage Park/Dunning

I am interested in reaching out to a few developers in the area to see if any are interested in the purchase of my home. I am NOT in the market for a realtor as I already have one but would like to know before I sign a contract if there are developers out there who I could negotiate a deal with before i commit to the sales fees. Thanks in advance for any help.

  • Me too. I'm in Avondale, near Elston, Rockwell, and Wellington.

    Would like to see if selling to a developer would be better for me...

    Also guy nearby with an empty lot was talking about the same thing to me..

Neighbor parks business truck with business plates on our block

Neighbor parks his business truck plate truck on the block backing really close to the person behind him as to conceal the plate. He will do it to anyone of the neighbors. Butt usually his wifes car.
This also makes it difficult for neighbors to pull out when someone has parked behind them. What can we do to stop this?

  • cheesecake chick i want to be the person my dog thinks i am

    this is a problem on my block. an owner of a single family bungalow has rented "beds" to a bunch of immigrant construction workers. there must be 8 adult men living in this house, besides the owner family. these guys have at least 4 trucks that they park on the block and take up all those additional spaces. Owner family is using the garage. nothing gets done about it.

  • So THAT's where the ones from by us moved to!! *kidding, kinda... had similar situation for a while, then all the sudden the house was vacated and ten trucks were off the street. No kidding; TEN

? Shooting on Laramie south of Addison 8:20pm, July 21

Anyone have details/story of what happened here? Had CPD SUVs and crime scene tape blocking Laramie south of Addison at the intersection last night. Can't find any further detail other than some 24 y/o has a GSW to their ankle.

  • i tend to see the less witnesses to an event or the less family and friends one has after the event has less coverage. it is just an observation. in the eyes of the news it may have not been worth it to them to be story worthy (sad).

  • Thanks Statch!! Link U shared is truly informative.
