Sewer hasn't drained in over 5 years

Location is on the side of a corner house at 6359 S Knox. The drain surface is kept free of debris. Everyone has called every department. Many many times we've called 311, the Ward Office, streets and sans. The trucks have come out but they do nothing. I expect to receive a call if it's been checked out with any resolution. It smells so bad. What can we do to find out how this is going to be resolved, does anybody know?

Camelot School moves to Emmanuel Baptist Church update.

Last night, the North Beverly Civic Assn hosted a community meeting with the leadership staff of this CPS Contract school at Greater Walter's Church. We heard the "dog and pony" show as well as rec'd beautiful literature on what this school intends to accomplish with "at risk" youths. Sounds wonderful, but we know that all roads to hell are paved with good intentions. I have never felt more proud and empowered to stand shoulder to shoulder with my community as we expressed our concerns and disapproval for the opening of this school. Most of our arguments against it were not based on emotion alone, but substantiated facts regarding our demographics that are not consistent with their mission. I hope they received our feedback in the spirit in which it was delivered. No one denied the need for such a program, we were in disagreement about where it should be.

They stated that they would not open in a community that was not welcoming for their students. We stood up to show our consensus that we would not be that welcoming community and are hoping that they decide to seek shelter elsewhere. The executive director ended the meeting with a commitment to share our concerns immediately with the Pastor of Emmanuel as the lease has not been signed. We are awaiting the results of their discussion.

Meanwhile, I noticed that signs have been put up on Damen restricting parking and white lines have been drawn in the street. It appears they are planning to create a crosswalk in the middle of the block for the students entry into the school. Deception all around. This is not the time to sit still neighbors, we have to move swiftly to impact change. It's not over yet, when money is involved we have to stand firm and demand this lease is not signed. Next stop protest the church and hold them accountable for creating this upset in our community.

I'm not going anywhere, are you?

  • Glad you had success with this issue. At some point this issue has to be addressed on the city and state level. While "Joey H" states that you must accommodate all children, the way CPS is going about it is all wrong. Dangling dollars in front of cash strapped churches is not the way to do this.

    Now, you need to be on the lookout for homeless teen shelters because DCFS is dangling dollars as well.

  • Carol R A concerned Mom & citizen.

    Absolutly! You are so right about that.
