Traffic Study could have avoided this mess!

The Charter School that was built in the industrial Zone near 47th and Kildare is a traffic tragedy!Did they actually think this through? I live two blocks away on Kolin and there are days when i misplaced schoolt takes ten minutes to get onto 47th from 49th street. Big decisions are made without examining the impact. Alderman Burke had said several times at the Archer Heights Civic Association meeting that nothing would be brought to the community unless the people...

The Charter School that was built in the industrial Zone near 47th and Kildare is a traffic tragedy!Did they actually think this through? I live two blocks away on Kolin and there are days when i misplaced schoolt takes ten minutes to get onto 47th from 49th street. Big decisions are made without examining the impact. Alderman Burke had said several times at the Archer Heights Civic Association meeting that nothing would be brought to the community unless the people want it! I dont recall being asked if we wanted a huge school placed in our neighborhood that effects the quality of life of all of us.So what is the Aldermans plan for getting input from his constituients? Ive never been informed of a committe that looks at these things Have you?
its time to hold the Alderman accountable for his decisions. We need to make more demands of him and his staff to responsibly seek input from the community.especially when he is spending our tax dollar without a careful examination of its impact..like the UNO charter school's traffic debacle!
How about holding a TIF illumination to show the neighborhood exactly where our money has gone? The Civics Lab has all the information already. tom tresser will charge a small fee to present al the info. I know that Ald. B will not expose this information. Ive already asked and he sent me a link to a website that does not even work!

    I remember when the past president of the AHCA strongly supported UNO, including arguing for it at the meetings and in the news letters. It was a time when many blindly followed the lead of the AHCA. It was Burke after all (when not Madigan or Zalewski) Once I find my copy of the local paper showing the president, vice and others of the AHCA proudly standing with Burke & others at the opening of UNO, I'll attach it here. Meanwhile, ...

    Would say a 10-20% traffic reduction along 47th st between Cicero & Pulaski help?

    Easy, build a bicycle path along the I55 (Stevenson Expy) Ship & Sanitary Corridor from Harlem to Halsted and watch large numbers of commuters (and UNO students) eagerly choose to instead ride their bicycles.

    And I'm...

    And I'm not even an elected official on the SW-side. Maybe in the future (4 years). Until then, whoever is the next SW-side aldermen, feel free to take this idea and claim it as your own. Nice work Alderman __?__ (fill in the blank). The rush is on for the first 23rd ward candidate to put out campaign literature featuring a bicycle in the background. Someone please send me a copy!

    Re: Comment by Chet606, above, this is what I heard from Deborah Shore on the radio over the weekend, in reply to just what you proposed:

    Ms. Shore (of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District/MWRD), was a guest on the show this past Sunday morning, and answered a caller (who also proposed such a trail/bike path along this same stretch of S&S corridor). She replied that, she was not aware of ANY proposal to for such a trail in that area.

    (and then added-- my own words here but this is the idea she communicated-- that, this area is mainly owned by the MWRD and leased out to various Chicago-land companies, and that it is still of economic viability to lease out for the transporting over-sized goods (i.e. their are still barge loading docks along this route), etc.

    In effect-- and in my opinion/conclusion-- she was saying that there were no civic plans to develop all or any of this land for such public use and benefit to the communities surrounding-- that the profit motive for a few businesses still using said docks (and paying the MWRD rent) took precedence over public benefits (where have we heard this tiresome story before)!

    (BTW, the radio show I heard this exchange on, is called: the Mike Nowak show, which is primarily dedicated to local gardening talk/tips, but also addresses local environmental concerns. That morning, the topic was about flooding in our area, the problems it causes citizens, etc., due mainly to the eroding underground infrastructure of the city. It was a very interesting program, and I would recommend Everyblockers tune in:

We need our library hours back, fully staffed, and secured.

Our libraries are not the safest place for our children. Parents beware of the lack of security by not having cameras and the exit doors don't have alarms. The staffed security guard is not equipped to react in an emergency. They can't touch a potential predator or any criminals. The protocol is to call police and wait for them to arrive. A sex predator is allowed within the facility unless a court order is established. If you don't believe me question the library manager. FYI.

SW-side Continues to Bury Head in Sand as Gov Quinn Gives $50,000,000 for Trails

As a former resident of Archer Heights and a former board member of the Archer Heights Civic Association, .... I told you so!

http://www.dot.il.gov/press/1%2030%2013%20ITEP%20-%20RELEASE.pdf

When will the leaders of the Sw-side wake up? When will the people of the SW-side (Archer Heights, Garfield Ridge, Clearing) wake up? There was a reason why I championed for a bicycle and nature path for many years. There was a reason why I repeatedly sought to meet with Ald.Burke, Ald. Zalewski, Cong. Lipinski. There...

As a former resident of Archer Heights and a former board member of the Archer Heights Civic Association, .... I told you so!

When will the leaders of the Sw-side wake up? When will the people of the SW-side (Archer Heights, Garfield Ridge, Clearing) wake up? There was a reason why I championed for a bicycle and nature path for many years. There was a reason why I repeatedly sought to meet with Ald.Burke, Ald. Zalewski, Cong. Lipinski. There was a reason why I repeatedly tried to get the 'leaders' of the AHCA to support a bicycle path. If only for the reason to give energetic youth someplace to blow off steam rather than by breaking into garages and other 'crime'. But then the local papers wouldn't have much to write about.

Everyone knows (or they find out the hard way after years of trying) that to get anything done in Archer Heights one needs to have the 'leaders' figuratively present the idea on a platter of promissory votes to who ever is the alderman at the time (pick one from the above). The more pomposity the better. Yes?

One prostitute, two prostitute, three prostitute, four. Apparently there isn't enough time between counting prostitutes on 47th & Cicero or trying to get a 'senior discount' from the local politicians to champion any other cause.

The SW-side, Archer Heights specifically is the land where politicians go to retire before they retire. It's a community where one with just a HS education is comfortable. Check out the last census. Wasn't Gov Quinn a guest at the AHCA meeting earlier this year?

A bicycle path people. It's easy. Have the conversation, interest and preliminary design on the shelf ready to go for moments like this!

  • Chet 606 Rogers Park, NOHavana, CE

    It's sumer! Everyone enjoying their bicycle riding? How about their commutes via a bicycle. Wow. So many Divvy stations! And the bicycle paths in Chicago! Excellent riding city. Hey, when will the SW side annex into Chicago? Who cares!
