Thinking of opening a store in Rogers Park Howard area..what are YOU looking for there? Curious!

I am an artist and musician
looking to open a store/boutique/business in my neighborhood. I've struggled most my life so I would keep things affordable for most anyone, I really want to do something cool for the area.
I have a focus on what I would offer, but would like to know from the neighborhood ...what would you like to see? what would you buy? what would be fun or needed?
I want to make people happy,
I'm all ears!

  • Rogers Park Phoenix It happens.

    The only time I drink starbucks is when some idiots call for a boycott of them because they get triggered over a coffee cup design. This year has been great - Trump voters are a special kind of idiot and can't even boycott properly. Yeah, go ahead and spend money at a place so you can have the barista write "Trump" on the cup in protest... that'll show 'em! #trumpcup

    Start a trigger safe space or a crying room. You'll have plenty of EB posters.

Poop on the sidewalk

It seems that there is a lot of dog (I hope) poop on the sidewalks of the 1600 block of Farwell. Most of the time it doesn't even look like someone tried to pick it up. Inevitably someone steps on it and then it's everywhere. Who's doing this!? Can we team up as neighbors to stop it?

  • Jarvis John I am a deplorable!!

    Government interference always has unintended consequences.

  • Maire in Rogers Park Have lived in RP for 25 yrs

    The proliferation of dog poop could be one reason for the increase in complaints about rats. Rats eat dog poop.

1313 Morse

It has been almost a year and a half since there has been any news about the proposed new building at 1313 West Morse Ave. Are Tawani Enterprises and Col. Jennifer Pritzker planning to move forward on this project? If so, when will construction begin?

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    "Neighbor," I think the point to my comment is quite clear. Is there a point to yours other than sniping?

  • Yes, Helen, I can see that you think your point is clear, despite it having no discernible purpose.

    As for the empty lot that is the subject of this post, the only thing we know for sure is that construction on that parcel has not moved forward after all this...

    Yes, Helen, I can see that you think your point is clear, despite it having no discernible purpose.

    As for the empty lot that is the subject of this post, the only thing we know for sure is that construction on that parcel has not moved forward after all this time, leaving us with another unattractive empty lot right on Morse Ave. If I recall correctly, it was designed with parking to be used, in part, for the now closed Mayne Stage and Act One Pub, both of which were abandoned by the same owners as the empty lot. We have to wonder whether that is a factor in construction not moving forward.

    We also know that Morse Avenue has taken serious steps backward. What was on its way to once again becoming a commercial asset to the community now has a very concerning number of empty lots and vacant properties. There is no up side for Rogers Park in that.

Sanctuary cities bill sponsor 49th ward Alderman Sponsor of measure WRP & Evanston news

http://evanstonnow.com/story/government/bill-smith/2016-11-23/76397/mayor-seeks-to-strengthen-sanctuary-city-policy

Hey if you are going to bring in whomever from wherever , is it too much to ask for criminal background checks for those people? Im just asking. Im not racist or xenophobic. If we have a full blown gang war, why add violent illegal aliens to the mix. Not talking about those people who come here for a better opportunity to work for their families

    Mayor seeks to strengthen 'sanctuary city' policy
    Evanston Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl will ask aldermen Monday to adopt a new "sanctuary city" ordinance modeled largely on one adopted earlier this fall in Chicago. The Chicago ordinance, introduced by 49th Ward Alderman Joe Moore, was approved unanimously by Chicago's City Council.

    Yep, head on back home. If you want to come back, go to the US consulate in your home country, fill out some forms, take some pics, and grab a spot in line. Then you can live in the US worry free. Some people do that y'know.

Getting rid of stuff

Does anyone have any recommendations of people to hire to move stuff out of a house and get rid of it? Or do people usually have their movers do this?
