Block Club?

If anyone who lives near Belmont & Austin/Narraganett would be interested in starting a block club, please let me know. With the recent shootings in and around the area, I think it would be best to come together as a community and get to know each other better. I saw a post a while back that had info to help others start their own block club. I will have to find it and take it from there. This is still a decent area, good neighbors and I would like to keep it that way! Thanks!

  • I'm at Austin and Diversey. I'd have trouble with meetings right now, but I'd love to join a facebook page and get to know some more neighbors. There's a lot of good in this neighborhood still, and I'd love to see that promoted and encouraged.

  • I'm on Major/Wrightwood. Would be interested in a block party.

Hapening now

Man shows up at OLR Shot ! 1:17 am Saturday hapend by Chicago by nite !

  • I wonder how there pension plan and insurance is ?

  • The insurance is free but no pension. That's ok though cuz you'll still get a full ride section 8 if u happen to live that long. If you get shot up and they unfortunately save you and your paralyzed, your also covered. Free disabled ride. No worries!!!!

    First off there are no speed cameras at Newport and Menard. So I'm confused by comments. You can put up all the cameras and bs you want. Stupid people are just that, Stupid. I've never understood why anyone would think stop signs or red lights or cameras are going to...

    First off there are no speed cameras at Newport and Menard. So I'm confused by comments. You can put up all the cameras and bs you want. Stupid people are just that, Stupid. I've never understood why anyone would think stop signs or red lights or cameras are going to prevent idiots from being idiots. Did you ever see gang bangers fly down a street with speed bumps, I did, they never slowed down, just flew right over them. None of this stuff prevents bad stuff from happening. All we can do is be watchful, and if were really disgusted by it, Move, to the country. But then they'd complain about the animals. I know it's not right, but all we can do, if we live here is learn how to deal with it and be careful. Cause no matter what you do, outside of having a cop on every block, always, There's nothing we can do about it. Also, think of this, maybe the girl had a medical crisis, seizure. Or, accelerator stuck. But then again we all know you never did anything stupid when you were young. Guessing she was young by earlier comments.

  • I was being sarcastic since I think the speed cameras are money-grabbing bull.

Dunning Conservation area gazebo collapsed

So sad to have seen the new gazebo built last summer, has collapsed, and I hope they will rebuild!!

  • cc...was that the tool shed in the community garden near the Streets & San yard? Or was it some other building elsewhere?

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

    it was a "gazebo" or picnic shelter. it was open air, so I doubt anyone would use it for a tool shed.......you can see it from oak park avenue, in the parking lot.
