Field Elementary- Playground Project

Hey RP Community! Anyone know what's going on at Field? I know they received a Room to Grow Grant for their playground and have started chaining off the parking lot but I haven't seen any movement other than that. I heard a rumor from my neighbor that the project was projected to be complete by June but I'm finding it hard to believe that time line.

Does anyone have the scoop? Thanks!

  • Bob Fuller 8-year Rogers Parker, Sunday Market volunteer

    Space to Grow reported at the last meeting at Field that construction will not begin until after school is out for the summer and will conclude before classes resume at the end of the summer.

  • Hey Bob,

    Just being nosy again! Have you seen/heard any updates? I live nearby and I haven't seen any type of construction or movement on the lot.

It's hooker season again

They seemed to disappear as winter arrived. Just noticed they are drifting back into my neighborhood again. Two of them were actually sitting on the back steps (leading to the basement) of my building just before noon on July 4. I came back a couple hours later and there was a wet nap and an unused condom in a wrapper lying on the steps. Nice. Saw another one ambling down my street with a couple of male friends the next morning just before 6:00 a.m.

My question is, what's the most effective way of getting these, ahem, ladies out? Police? (311? 911?) Alderman? Any other suggestions?
