According to the Concerned citizens of Chatham there is one convention " The Radiological Society of North America "comes to Chicago annually with an attendance of 20,000-25,000 attendees from all over the world with an economic impact for the City of an estimated 100 million. None or very limited spent south of 23rd, this needs to be addressed.

Does anyone know anything about the three projects that just broke ground in and near Stateway Park? The one in the actual park looks huge.

Well, more snow today and I'm proud that several of us in the neighborhood got together and shoveled all around many properties in our area. That was followed up by taking several Seniors to Jewel's so that they could get groceries. I'm proud of my neighbors, actually investing time on the front lines to better this community. It's one thing to talk about community improvements rather than hiding behind meetings waiting for others to bring change, but it's another thing when you actually put boots on the ground -- your boots. So, what are you doing? What have you done? What will you be doing?

We first started out with this idea of changing the culture of Bronzeville and one of the first ideas came from a young lady was positive loitering, this was her solution to the violence that was overtaking different parts of Bronzeville at the time, well not only are we going to embrace the positive loitering idea let's all kick in on the spring clean up idea. The ongoing theme of changing the culture of 35th was to clean it up...
We first started out with this idea of changing the culture of Bronzeville and one of the first ideas came from a young lady was positive loitering, this was her solution to the violence that was overtaking different parts of Bronzeville at the time, well not only are we going to embrace the positive loitering idea let's all kick in on the spring clean up idea. The ongoing theme of changing the culture of 35th was to clean it up as being our first step, that means from State st. to the Lake. This announcement can be generated through our Alderman's Newsletters(Burns, Fioretti, and Dowell) and include the resources of the streets and Sanitation dept. There is an meeting on the drawing board within the Supreme Life bldg. where we will discuss all ideas positive as how we can as citizens prepare our community going forward as soon as weather permits, this also could be an opportunity to unify ourselves for the development of Bronzeville.

We have a problem with the culture on 35th, loitering, littering, intimidating presence of people who make visiting 35th a risky venture at best. The question is how to establish a new norm of behaviour that encourages visiting on this street, I pose this question because I think this is all about perception, and in most cases that is accepted as reality, the police can only do so much, some of the responsibility of securing our community falls on us,...
We have a problem with the culture on 35th, loitering, littering, intimidating presence of people who make visiting 35th a risky venture at best. The question is how to establish a new norm of behaviour that encourages visiting on this street, I pose this question because I think this is all about perception, and in most cases that is accepted as reality, the police can only do so much, some of the responsibility of securing our community falls on us, fear of our community must end. I know, how do you do that when you are on 35th and not in the mood for fast food chicken or need beauty supply products or cheap knockoffs, this summer I propose that we form a beautification commitee, with some strategic landscaping, eliminating trash and clutter, mobilizing ward sanitation to beautify empty lots,encouraging the formation of a Bronzeville Chamber of commerce, so as to work with buisness owners to assist in maintaining and improving their buisnesses, there is good model for this (Albany chamber of commerce on lawrence ave.) I know this is a monumental task, but the energy is there I can sense it, there are movers and shakers all throughout Bronzeville and the time to move is now.

Does anyone have an update on the closing for the Central Arms Hotel on 47th Street? This topic came up in an unrelated discussion thread. What is so difficult with closing this hotel? It's not really "open" with vacancies, correct? Is the owner fighting the city?
