Crime in Portage Park neighborhood

I've lived in Portage Park for 33years, My wife and I have raised our six children here, it's a great area to raise a family, work or own a business, a lot of new businesses are opening up along Irving Park Rd, and yes sometimes crime is a problem every neighborhood goes through it, two of my sons are CPD I hear some of the stories and believe me we're in pretty good shape, so enjoy your summer and your family and don't be afraid to call the police and get involved it's very important to watch over and help the the senior citizens in the area.

  • Thanks for all the positive posts. I agree, call the police for anything you know is not right. The bad guys need to know people are watching.

Perhaps someone would like to attend one of these listening sessions and represent our community. See the received e-mail below:

"As you may have heard, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has announced a statewide infrastructure listening tour to "start a statewide conversation that lays the groundwork for a realistic, sustainable plan for bringing our infrastructure into the 21st century." Please see the schedule, which includes a number of public events in our region where attendees can make their views known.

We encourage all interested parties to attend one or more meetings to speak out on the need for a state capital program that upholds principles adopted by the CMAP Board, emphasizing the need for transparent, performance-based project selection and adequate funding for both highways and transit. We hope you will find these principles useful at the meetings and in coming months as the Governor and General Assembly take up important decisions about how to fund the transportation system that drives our state's and region's economy.

CMAP's principles are based on the GO TO 2040 comprehensive plan. Click here [see links below] to learn more about the metropolitan Chicago regional transportation system.

Sincerely,
Gerald Bennett
Chairman
Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning"

  • Craig Born and raised in the city.

    Isn't this a waste of money? Like they can't tell if something needs to be fixed or rebuilt.

  • Minerva Performing Schools. Performing Communities.

    It could be a waste of money or an opportunity. Not enough of information is present to judge. If one can feed info about their own community and change the priorities, it can be a tremendous win for us.

    Based on the posted schedule, the listening tour is over.
