Christmas lights up and down Sheridan

Thank you for making it happen. Joe Moore were lucky to have you. Rogers park is getting better and better. Now we need residents from lakeview Edgewater and downtown evanston to spend more of their dollars here. We want our property values to go up and make Rogers park a more desirable place to live work and spend. Keep up the good work. Looks pretty just like my outlook.

    the businesses in that area paid for it and made it happen via their SSA tax budget

    I live up on the north side of rogers park. There is no christmas up here. You must be referring to the wonderful Loyola area christmas. It is indeed magical down that way.

    In past years, I'd look forward to seeing the christmas trees and lights at the christmas tree lot, but even that little bit of cheer is now gone.

    Well, maybe next year pritzker will put some lights up on the parking tower for us.

    Re comment about 16% of failing grades in Rogers Park: another view is that Rogers Park diversity of population and availability of store fronts offer a great opportunity of people to follow the American Dream and be entrepreneurs and open a business. The city is doing a great job of monitoring the businesses and making sure the restaurants are following and adhering to health standards. I just wish we had more Italian restaurants in the neighborhood that I could walk to when I have a hankering. Now I have to cook myself for a good pasta dish.
