UPS Store to open

Saw that the apartment building with the 2 storefronts that has taken forever to get going between 33rd Halsted and 32nd will be hosting a UPS store. I don't know about everyone else but I'm happy with this. Not having a car this will be an easy drop off for me. This is an example of what we need in our neighborhood. Hope it pans out!

  • Erik H Loyola & UofC alumnus, Chicago Loot Drop charity

    Anyone know if this is intended to be a permanent store, versus just a temporary store for the holidays?

    Erik, I would think if it was a temporary store it would have been open since around/b4 Thanksgiving. Both Fed Ex & UPS have been crazy time busy since then. I deal with both companies every day.

    I'm pleased to report that out McKinley Park Progressive Alliance is getting some good momentum based on the coming electoral season. We never formally endorsed Pete or Chuy but all of us are enthusiastic for their campaigns. Pete's campaign is currently moving on three fronts -- defend the position on the ballot from Cardenas' frivolous legal attack to our signatures, raise some money to open an office, and conduct a whirlwind tour -- holding meetings in every precinct. In the past week -- in addition to the MPPA forum -- we've held two local meetings in precincts west of Western. In their own way, they have been even more successful than the candidate's forum. The reason? Grassroots residents came and vented their frustration because they feel abandoned by the current alderman. Jorge you have been a great person to meet for you knowledge of real estate and insights about how to frame policy that will lead to a people-centered revival in McKinley. I have been around a long time and I know momentum building when I see it.

  • John W. More equal wealth based on more equal work

    PAWS changes their prices often, as well as the areas which get discounted prices. Currently the package for feral cat fixing is $20, which includes the sterilization, ear cleaning, wound cleaning, antibiotics, etc.

    I've known people who could not afford even that, and then they had a 'Volunteer for a Voucher' program wherein the individuals did volunteer work for PAWS and then got a voucher for the needed service. I don't know to what extent that is still available.

"Did you see all the amazing public art, streetscaping, business development and infrastructure modernization projects in Bridgeport this year, which put us miles down the road to end blight? To the tune of $11.5M? Yeah, neither did I." - Grace M.

Folks, I really hope to see you Thursday night.
My wife Lynn and I are working w/ friends to bring the TIF Illuminator Project to Bridgeport. Regardless of political leanings, Chicagoans needs to know this information.

My friends and family are incensed by the deplorable conditions of Halsted and the lack of local leadership/accountability. By my count there are 120+ vacant, dilapidated or empty commercial plots along Halsted, between 49th & University Village. Our TIF Districts, including the one along Halsted, drained $11.5 million from us in 2013. That’s money intended to stamp out encroaching urban blight. Have you seen $11.5 million in local development? Neither have I. Those millions were only the take for 2013. Some local TIFs began in 1996 and wont expire until 2020.

More worrisome is a sneaky, trick called “PORTING.” Porting allows our $11.5 Million to flow straight downtown to fund the poorly planned DePaul Entertainment District, w/o local input and only a hand-shake between Mayor & Alderman ...a VERY real possibility. Early projections of costs for the District were $1.1 Billion. However, the SunTimes reports skyrocketing cost and Emanuel scrambling for money.

Now that you’re angry let me suggest the start of a solution.
- become educated on the TIF process
-demand the support of full transparency in the TIF process as a basic requirement of ALL elected official.

The first step of educating ourselves is what Thursday night is all about.

To be respectful of everyone’s weekday evenings the presentation starts at 7pm sharp and is only one hour in length.

For more info: http://chicago.everyblock.com/neighbor-events/dec04-the-tif-illuminator-project-illuminates-11th-ward-6488138/

  • UPDATE: last night Tom Tresser let us know that adjusting for the newly drawn 11th Ward boundaries the Mayor & Alderman's TIF Districts siphoned $16 MILLION out of our neighborhood in 2013. Of that $16 MILLION, $4.5 Million simply disappeared into random city accounts and will never to be seen again. What could you have done with $4.5 Million to help rebuild the neighborhood?

  • - All that was required to make this $4.5 Million disappear was a simple hand-shake agreement between Alderman James Balcer & Mayor Ramn Emanuel. Where did our money go Jim Balcer?

Local school budgets were cut, the police need patrol officers, the library is open reduced hours, our streets are in disrepair, NOTHING has been done about the ruined viaducts between Bridgeport and Armour Square and again into Chinatown.

Sullivan's campaign covered only 1/5 of the honorarium. A group of 11th Ward families and friends paid the other 4/5. As a group 11th Ward Neighbors is calling for transparency in the TIF process. Maureen Sullivan is on-board with transparency, enough so that her campaign gave some money to help host the event. If Maureen Sullivan is elected we will hold her to fighting for a transparent TIF process. Should Daley Thompson or Kozlar get the vacant 11th Ward Aldermanic seat we'll hold them accountable just the same. Abuse of public funds transcends a specific campaigns.

We are stating that a transparent TIF process is now a basic expectation for holding office in the 11th Ward.

Why do people have such a hard time with the noise ordinance?

Yes, I'm irritated that my neighbors decided to move early Thanksgiving morning, but it's not just them. It's the construction guys and the carpool people who insist on honking their horns instead of knocking on the door or using their cell phone at 6am. I know we live in the city and don't expect country calm, but why is it so hard for people to respect their neighbors and obey the noise ordinance?

  • More so the LOUD music and party's that go on all night...

  • Angie 7 good years in Bridgeport

    Chicago has a noise ordinance?!?! Seriously though, lately the water main construction work has been the worst. Toward the beginning (months ago now!) there were days they started rolling the trucks in at 5-5:30 a.m. I mean, come on - really? At least if it actually got the job done I might mind (a little) less. As it stands though I swear there is no end in sight. And the honking - I know! Get. Out. Of the car.

Water Shutoff

General questions looking for helpful comments: I am currently doing some work in my basement. Detected a mild leak from an old valve on the main just before the meter in my house. I'd like to replace the old valve, problem is, I have no visible water shutoff in front of my house. (No buffalo box, no pit.) Have not gone directly to water dept yet, but I was wondering if I or my plumber can do anything before having the city come out? Does the city even respond if the home owner is looking for shut down just for repair? What would be the fastest way to handle this?

  • Do you have a water meter in front of your home that is located along the front of the property? I mean the thing that looks like a small sewer cover. If you do, the meter is there and there usually is a turn valve located in there. You may...

    Do you have a water meter in front of your home that is located along the front of the property? I mean the thing that looks like a small sewer cover. If you do, the meter is there and there usually is a turn valve located in there. You may need a 5 point 13/16 half in drive socket to remove the cover that looks like a small sewer cover to get to it. Your plumber should have one of these sockets or you can get one at a plumbing supply store or on Ebay and Amazon. P.S. I don't mean the meter that is directly installed in the home or located attached to the home

    thanks emrnibbles. I do have one by the curb and a plumber got it open but couldn't get at the shutoff valve because of debris. Now I'm waiting for the city to come dig it out. Once it's shut off I can see if my kitchen/bath water has stopped or if the lake in my basement stops filling up, or both or neither. Best case will be if it shuts off the water to the basement pond and my kitchen/bath water is still running. I still think there are two separate water mains from the street.
