What do you think of a Proposal to Rename Jarvis Beach and Park?

I am writing to determine if you would have a strong objection to changing the name of the Jarvis Beach and Park (see photos below ) to the Marion Mahony Griffin Beach and Park in honor of the renowned Rogers Park artist and architect, Marion Mahony Griffin (1871-1961).

I am writing to determine if you would have a strong objection to changing the name of the Jarvis Beach and Park (see photos below ) to the Marion Mahony Griffin Beach and Park in honor of the renowned Rogers Park artist and architect, Marion Mahony Griffin (1871-1961).

The Chicago Park District and the Australian Consul-General in Chicago, Roger Price, asked me recently if I would consider supporting the naming of a park or beach in Rogers Park in honor of Ms. Mahony Griffin.

Below is a brief summary of her illustrious life:

Mary Mahony Griffin (see photo below taken in 1930 with husband, Walter Burley Griffin) was of the first female licensed architects in the United States, an ambassador of the Chicago-style architecture to the world, and a pioneer for professional women in the first decades of the 20th Century. She was the first employee hired by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and became his right hand person. Her design work and watercolors became synonymous with the Prairie Style of architecture.

Her beautiful watercolor renderings of buildings and landscapes became known as a staple of Wright's style, though he never gave her credit for her work. Despite her talents, her work went largely unrecognized during her tenure with Wright.

Mahony Griffin's talents finally emerged from Wright's shadow when she and her husband, Walter Burley Griffin, won the international design competition for designing the capitol city of Australia, Canberra (this is why the Consul-General of Australia is advocating for her to be honored). She is celebrated in Australia and Asia, but remains overlooked in the United States, her hometown of Chicago and the neighborhood of Rogers Park where she spent her final years.

Below is a Wikipedia biography of Mahony Griffin's amazing life:

    According to Park District regulations, there are specific criteria and procedures for renaming a park or facility. The regulations specifically say that in the case of renaming a park that currently is named for a specific person (Jarvis) or is associated with a known history attached to the name (Rogers Park Historical Society records indicate that Jarvis worked with Rogers and Touhy in establishing Rogers Park), the Park District may consider alternative means of recognizing the proposed rename (Griffin). Most importantly there is a presumption to keep the existing name (Jarvis) unless there is a finding of "extraordinary circumstances". Alternatives means for recognizing Griffin have been proposed in this thread but there doesn't seem to be any consideration of that by either the Alderman today or the Park District over the last ten years. The Park District's own criteria and regulations are quite clear on this matter. Alternative means of recognition not only are allowed but are encouraged in a case such as Jarvis Beach. Why is there no dialogue?

  • Good information, Barry. Looks like we need to be in contact with the Park District and attend the board meeting.

I believe I could lock it to a lampost etc legally but I just don't want to invite the temptation. So I was hoping I could find a neighbor with a garage or a backyard that would allow myself and my bike access. I know this is a HUGE shot in the dark but I'm willing to pay monthly so I don't have to park out in the open. Suggestions? Offers?

Skokie shooting victim has ties to Rogers Park

Evanston Now is reporting that the person killed in the shooting on McComick yesterday was involved in a May 2012 shooting at Gale school. His address at that time was on the 7000 block of North Paulina. Sounds like a hit to me. Guy on a motorcyle pulled up and shot him. He served 8 months for unlawful use of a weapon and was released 13 months ago.

    I e-mailed Ev Now and they responded with details of where the address came from but couldn't get further clarification. He said that the verified an Evanston PD said that yes 2 years ago he did provide the 7xxx N Paulina address. The 7xxx S Paulina address in this new incident came from the medical examiner's office, but it's unclear where they got it whether the deceased had ID or someone else told them that was his address. They attempted to get clarification from medical examiner but couldn't.

Kilmer Elementary Dog Park.

If you use the Kilmer Elementary yard on Northshore for your personal little dog park please please place yourself between your dog and the exit.

Just watched a little girl getting attacked by a black and white Pit. Owner woke up in time but really as the owner you should be stationed at the entrance/exit so your dog does not get out.

Right or wrong a lot of people use this space for an impromptu dog park. Be careful when using it.

  • chrisfinn bornagain chicagoan

    It is really a darn shame what is happening in this day & age. People are more concerned about "dumb" animals & their "rights" than the safety of women & children. Is it a people park or a dog park? I get so tired & annoyed at seeing animals being carried on walks or in those so called "dog/pet" carriages. They have FOUR count them four legs, they should be walking. No excuses.

  • drc Edgewater/Andersonville Border

    Let's not make this about pit bulls please.... as a RESPONSIBLE pet owner (regardless of breed) the owners are responsible fro their animals and to ensure they are leashed and well behaved and socialized. Moreso, the pet should not have been left unattended. Likewise, the girl should have not been unattended.

    I would be curious to know how often they actually recover casings and what not from random shootings called in at night. If they're coding the call in 10 minutes I would think there would be no evidence being collected? Who is supposedly collecting this, actual ET's (who are based 6 miles away and couldn't possibly drive here in 10 minutes...) or beat cops themselves bagging it? Or are they not actually collecting evidence when shots are fired, just acknowledging it existed? Murder different story of course.

    With respect to the "fireworks as cover" hypothesis, try to look at it from the shooter's point of view? Does he want to cover up the fact that a shooting is taking place? No. The shooting is meant to send a message as well as to exact retribution. The shooter WANTS people to know there's been a shooting. What he doesn't want is for the authorities to be able to peg him as the one responsible. Setting of fireworks as sound camouflage doesn't help him either send his message or conceal his own identity. Thus, there's no good reason why he'd do it.

    Occam's Razor: The simplest explanation is the most likely. And the simplest explanation of a mix of firecracker and gunshot sounds, particularly in Chicago in the summertime is that someone happened to be setting off fireworks at the same time, and in approximately the same area, that someone else was firing a gun.

Quick recap: My neighbor has reserved (handicapped) parking but parks his vehicle all over the block in order to save parking spaces for other members of his household. I wondered if this is legal (it's certainly not right). I e-mailed photos to the alderman's office and spoke with Marlene, who advised that it is not illegal for those with reserved parking to park elsewhere on the block because the streets are open to the public. It seems to me that this is a loophole that needs to be closed. If the City takes a public parking space and gives it to a resident for his/her exclusive use, then that reserved space should be the only place on that street that this person should park. Other members of his/her household should get the same luck of the draw as everybody else. I'd like to ask the alderman to sponsor an amendment to that ordinance. Opinions, please.

  • Clark, I think there's a misunderstanding here. I'm not talking about moving a placard. I'm talking about using a vehicle with a placard to save a parking space for others. The placard stays in the vehicle that is saving the space, the handicapped person is not moving vehicle to vehicle. I'm sorry for your experiences. I have a blind family member who's been treated the same way on the bus and on the street. Seems that too many people don't learn proper manners these days.

    Not sure. the alderman told us that these lot were zoned commercial, but were rezoned for some reason or another about 4 years ago. Now they are reverting them back to accommodate the Toyota dealership.

  • I wonder if the residents most affected could band together and use the rezoning as leverage to get the buildings modified. If it's already a done deal it's hopeless...you would think that residents would have a say in this, though.

Garbage Dumper on 6400 Block of Fairfield

He had parked overnight out front and when he retrieved his car he apparently decided that the parkway in front of my home was the right place for a McDonald's bag and a black plastic bag, both full of garbage, and several receipts.

This morning I caught a guy dumping garbage from his parked car onto my parkway. He had parked overnight out front and when he retrieved his car he apparently decided that the parkway in front of my home was the right place for a McDonald's bag and a black plastic bag, both full of garbage, and several receipts. I yelled at him to stop and picked up the garbage, tossing it back inside the car through the open passenger window just as he was about to toss out a water bottle. He was surprised and then furious, tossing the same garbage plus the water bottle onto the street as he drove away. I got his license number. How do I get the police to issue a dumping ticket? Actually, he should get two tickets, one for the parkway and one for the street. I'll go to court if he contests the tickets. Even if this becomes he-said she-said, he'll miss at least a morning's work and it may make him think twice before he dumps garbage again. What really makes me mad is that I had just cleaned the parkway when I walked the dogs, and had picked up other garbage on our street. Be on the lookout for an older model dark green 4-door car, partial license plate R96---8 (I won't post the whole thing but I have it), driven by a young Hispanic with a close buzz cut. I think he lives on Washtenaw. He's the garbage dumper. He's parked out front before and I've found garbage but this is the first time I've actually caught him.

You could say it will be similar to another small park at Thorndale & Sheridan. Same style pergola and similar landscaping. Google this address (street view) and you will see what I mean:1000 W Thorndale Ave Chicago, IL 60660 The article states that some residents are concerned about the added foot traffic and gang loitering the park might bring. The fact is that the current state of the property has been attracting undesirables for years. Just getting good lighting out there will drive away some of that. Of course having a park there will attract more visitors than an empty, fenced in lot, but I don't see that as a bad thing. My dog and I are really looking forward to it.

Off-Street Parking Needed Near Farwell & Greenview

Hello!

I was wondering if anyone knew of any off-street parking within a couple blocks of Farwell Ave and Greenview St, available starting next week or Aug 1st. I've tried Craig's List and Parkopedia but not found anything within a half mile.

Any leads would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Michael

  • I could find out if my landlord still has space. I think he rents his parking spots for $80 or $85, but it's not gated! He's on the 1500 blk of Farwell. I park mine vehicle behind the 1515 W. Morse building for $75 a month, plus $50 for the remote (it's gated), which will be refunded when you no longer need to the parking space! They also might still have a space

  • Thanks, Kizzy! I spoke with Maria and Rick this morning (you and I have the same landlord) and it looks like he has a space available. I appreciate the help!

kitten needs a forever home

This beautiful orange kitty is looking for his forever home. Martin is about 1 year old, neutered, healthy, and happy. He was rescued from the Chicago Animal Shelter by Famous Fido and is availabilities for adoption. Martin loves to cuddle with you at night and will smuggle in your lap. Martin is an easy going, quiet guy who would love a home of his own. He is currently being fostered in a home with a couple of other cats and 2 small dogs and gets along nicely. Go to famousfidorescue.com for more info on him.

9 shots fire in Rogers Park

Around 9 shots were fire last night around 10pm. 2 male were injured in the drive by shooting at the N.W. corner of Farwell and Greenview. I live in the building in front where it happen! Don't know if it's retaliation from a earlier shooting in the 1500 blk of Morse and Farwell alley. If you have more info, please do tell!

  • Bigchibro.....the maintenance man did try to wash it off, the pictures were taken the next morning. When I got home from work, I try to scrub it off with water and dish soap, it came out a little lighter. Yesterday (7/22) when I walk my dog, it seem more unnoticeable!

  • I care that you guys(& any where in RP where there has been a shooting) should not have to walk over the blood or blood stains .There is too much blood on the sidewalks of Rogers Park.I feel foolish for trying and caring though( on this particular topic ) .

    Thanks Kizzy you be safe and have a wonderful day .
    Also kizzy thanks for trying clean it as much as you did that is soo sweet of you .

    Blessings to you

Greenleaf and Damen @ 4:30am. 7/22

There were about 9 police cars, they drew their guns at a pickup truck. It looked liked they arrested two people and were searching the truck. I was just glad there were no shots fired. Never seen anything up close, pretty scary stuff.

multiple shots fired?

I awoke to the sound of what I thought was gunfire at 4:47 am on July 22nd. I then heard more about 30 minutes later. Anyone else hear this? I am pretty sure it was a gun fight (involving more than one shooter) as I saw an unmarked police car speed down my street (Howard and Sheridan area) shortly after the first cluster of shots. My sleep addled brain tried telling me it was fireworks, but as I slowly became conscious I realized that it was 4:47 am on a Tuesday!

    There seems to have definitely been fireworks around that time, Julie. Was there also gunfire? Who knows. Did you try scrolling down EveryBlock? You would have found this thread:

    If you think that idiots wouldn't set off fireworks at 4:47 AM, you would be wrong.

  • It was fireworks at Touhy and Sheridan. I was so pissed as I'm sure were many. Just about scared me outa my skin having been sound asleep.

    Glad to know it was only fireworks, but do not enjoy waking up and having the fear of gunfire. This city is changing me and I am not altogether sure it is for the better.
