Blue arrow on trees

Does anyone know what this blue arrow means? I'm assuming a utilities of some sort. Any info? Thanks!

  • Jason Marshall Pilsen - Harrison Park resident

    I believe the arrows lead to the smurf village ;)

  • Kathy Long time Bridgeport resident

    maybe a dying or diseased tree or tree trimming by the electric company

  • Thanks for your inputs. It's been bugging me so I did some more research and tracked down a # to Streets & San Forestry Div. Man at the office said that blue paint usual means water main location. Makes sense!

Landlord Workshop coming to Bridgeport

Mon, Apr 28, 2014 6:00 - 8:00 pm

The Chicago Police Department, in partnership with the Departments of Buildings and Law, along with Community Investment Corporation (CIC), 9th CPD CAPS officers and the Bridgeport Citizens Group will hold a workshop in Bridgeport on Monday April 28, 2014. This workshop will focus on helping rental property owners and managers improve their level of safety with their investments. Topics covered will include leases, rental agreements, riders as well as the importance of background checks, rental history and inspections. The two-hour workshop will run from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the 9th District police station located at 3120 S. Halsted. Seating is limited so reserve yours now by calling 312 - 508 - 8852.

  • Just reserved my spot. I own 6 buildings and I do pick up, shovel and cut the grass. I do hate the fact that my tenants won't pick up those annoying papers since I can't go by the properties everyday just to do that. We need a solution for those papers that nobody wants anyway.

  • imagine imagine all the people living life in peace

    May I suggest we gather all those annoying papers up and place them in appliance boxes. Yeah know the big ones that fridges come in and take them to the Tribune's doorstep! They should NOT be allowed to place anything on porch. Why can't this be addressed at the dam City Council and be helpful for once!

How do you feel about the firefighters?

The media have been reporting on a new contract with the firefighters, and I am wondering how you feel about the ones in this city.

The media have been reporting on a new contract with the firefighters, and I am wondering how you feel about the ones in this city.

Personally, I doubt that we are getting our money's worth from these city employees. First, they work 24 hours on and 48 off -- who really believes that they are working 24 hours? All this schedule does is allow them to sleep on the city job, then go out and work another one since they are so rested.

Second, why does the city not share data on the amounts, types, and outcomes of fire department calls? At least with the police, we can get an idea of what kind of reports are being made, but where can we go to find out what the CFD has accomplished? How many fires have you had in your neighborhood? I know of only 3 in the past 19 years, at least 2 of which were the residents' fault -- failure to clean out dryer lint, and putting things too close to space heater.

I would rather have the city put money into creating a video game that shows kids, teens and adults how to prevent a fire, what equipment to have in the building to deal with it, and what to do if one starts.

Perhaps some of you will be CFD boosters, and I welcome your stories. But before you laud them for their bravery, please think about all the news stories where the individual who saved someone in a fire was a family member, neighbor, passerby, or even the cops on patrol.

  • If you want to save money for the city cut the number of alderman we have way too many and most do way too little

    I'm no firefighter but I know some ... have visited several firehouses and I have been in firefights for over 24 hrs ... 24 hours with only brief periods to catch your breath ... and when you DO catch your breath its only smoke and death .... 24 hours with only water ... no food ... no sleep .... no nothing .... but fighting ..... its not easy and its not fun ... My feeling is that it takes every minute of 48 hrs to recuperate ... only to fight again .... 48 hrs is not a lot of time to recuperate after 24 hrs in a hellish inferno ... There ARE times when fireman can go to work without getting wet but YOU NEVER KNOW!
    I have over 40 yrs working with military personnel including 6 in recruiting field ... 1 (1986) as the top recruiter in Chicago ... I've enlisted people for 6 years (now 8 is the Military Service Obligation.
    Some never left the States and got a 4 year college degree in their spare time .... Some 'bit the bullet' in less than a year ..... When you apply for Police or Fire OR enlist in the Military ..... you JUST NEVER KNOW!

What is going to be built here?

Does anyone know what is going to be done at 3124(approx address) S Shields Ave. It seems like they are doing to tear down the factory/warehouse there...I don't even know who owns it now...Advance something or other....(is the name I think) Anyway I live on that block and am curious as to what is going on with all the excavators and bulldozers they are using there this week.

  • We own property down the street from this location & would welcome new homes w/open arms. The property has been an eyesore for a number of years & we could not get the owner to clean it up. It's better vacant than what was there.

  • i live directly across trom this site and they are definitely digging a huge whole and getting a foundation for something started. perhaps they will build homes like the ones on the opposite side of Stewart (ST/alley/whatever it is) If they build that then the people will all have their own garages and parking on Stewart street behind their residences also. So the parking should not be to problematic, except the property taxes will go up again.

What about a hotel instead of a heliport?

Jumping off the Balcer/heliport thread, what about using the site instead to put up a mid-level hotel, like a Choice or Marriott property? There is nowhere for folks from out of town to stay nearby that is decent and reasonable. If we have guests come into town they end up going downtown or out by Midway. Our apartment is too small to accomodate overnighters. The location is convenient to Bridgeport, Sox Park, IIT, Chinatown, Pilsen, Mercy Hospital, the loop, UIC and the West Side Medical Campus, with great public transportation available, especially if they keep the proposed water-taxi stop. Just wanted put the idea out there for consideration.

  • Ro Bridgeport tailor's granddaughter

    Isn't seeking investors for growth and business part of the Alderman's job? Shouldn't he find out if the people of the community want to have a mid-range hotel/motel here and then work to find a delveloper? If not at the Halsted site, how about where the Wrigley factory was? Is there anything definite about what is going to happen there? The project could include a water-taxi stop by 35th St. That would be great for Sox Games. If only I had the capital....

    Starbucks was offered the corner of 35th and Halsted before Oscar's took it. They wanted NOTHING to do with this area! Amen Ro.....The Wrigley area is NOTHING but bars. Yeah it is. Ask them if they are really truly busy in the off season? Do you want this area to be like Wrigleyville....All Bars? NOPE! We already have people urinating in the street already. Water Taxi? Only water close by is the River. How do you propose that? They still need a way to the park! Do yeah really want a notel MOTEL? Might attract the wrong element. In the past week we had 2 hooker busts already! How about what Halsted used to be? mom and pop shops. Decent shops not junk dollar store nonsense. A really nice place to sit and eat a good meal. Not so hard.
