Trees chopped down

Trees are being taken down in the Fremont and Wisconsin area. Does anyone know why? I have not yet heard back from the Alderman's office.

  • Same thing happened over on Belden. I tried calling and writing the Alderman to see if they will at least be replacing the trees. I understand the Ash disease, but it's now been over a year and it's just stumps everywhere. I have yet to hear from the Alderman.

  • Here's what I heard from the Alderman's office:
    Thank you for your email. Alderman Smith does not grant approvals or permits for tree removals, as the Bureau of Forestry is charged with inspecting trees for potential disease and removing as is deemed appropriate. That being said, we have contacted the Bureau of Forestry for an update on the tree that was removed, and will also input a request with the Bureau of Forestry for replacement of the tree this spring.

NY Wing Factory

Does anyone know what's going on with the "coming soon" NY wing factory on Lincoln? I've seen it vacant for a year or so but then thought I saw somehow working inside the other day.

Police - Belden/Clark

Driving north on Clark I saw 3 undercover police cars parked with their lights flashing at the intersection of Belden & Clark. One looked as though it had pulled over a CTA bus. Does anyone know what happened?

Projected sign on Lincoln Park West building?

Tonight there is a projected "sign" on the north side of a building on Lincoln Park West. The actual projection is 7 or 8 stories in height at the top of the building. It flashes like a Times Square billboard. Does anyone know anything about this eyesore? And can it be legal? It is in the middle of a completely residential area.

  • Contact the alderman, and have her start an investigation. We've wondered the same thing about the horrible Las Fuentes signage. It's such a great restaurant and has an adorable patio, but the signs are just awful. They look like they were spray painted in someone's garage. We've decided we will no longer patronize it as a result.
