Trash Off Taylor Street

There is an excessive amount of trash at Arrigo Park that the Park District seems to have little interest in picking up. I'm not sure if picking up the trash was an item that was cut from the city's budget this year, but the garbage accumulation has been out of control.

There is an excessive amount of trash at Arrigo Park that the Park District seems to have little interest in picking up. I'm not sure if picking up the trash was an item that was cut from the city's budget this year, but the garbage accumulation has been out of control.

Additionally, between the UIC students who park on Lytle Street between Taylor and West Cabrini streets and those who park during the day on West Cabrini Street at the south end of Arrigo Park, the perpetual flow of litter and trash from these two entities only adds to the problem.

UIC students regularly discard their empty Starbucks cups, McDonald's packaging, water bottles, and beer cans along both Lytle and Cabrini streets on a daily basis. The students treat our neighborhood like a sewer and as a tax paying resident I'm getting really tired of picking up their garbage every day.

There is also a contingency that regularly parks on West Cabrini at the south end of Arrigo Park to drink and occasionally have sex in their cars - hence the used condoms I'm finding on the street on a regular basis. West Cabrini street is frequently littered with discarded food, beer cans, and the glass from broken bottles of alcohol. The police use to often park along this street, which helped this situation quite a bit. However, since the district 12 police station moved south of Roosevelt Road, it's become a problem.

We're so incredibly lucky to have such a great park in our neighborhood and it pains me that others don't appreciate it's beauty or respect the residents by littering everywhere. I'm not sure what to do about the problem and I'm totally open to suggestions that anyone may have. Perhaps the addition of some "no litter" and "loitering" signs, additional garbage cans, or the creation of a neighborhood watch committee?

  • Dear Brian: I agree that the park is a very special asset. Check with the Alderman's office and University Village Association. I think that there is a clean and Green event coming at the end of April. It has been a long month of snow on the street and cold...

    Dear Brian: I agree that the park is a very special asset. Check with the Alderman's office and University Village Association. I think that there is a clean and Green event coming at the end of April. It has been a long month of snow on the street and cold weather so that may explain the accumulation of debris. We saw it on our street Once people see that it is being taken care of any the trash containers are available i think that it will encourage all to respect the park.

    hope this helps

  • As someone who used to frequent Arrigo thats very upsetting news. Have you witnessed the people littering? If you see that it is definitely students then I would maybe contact UIC. Additionally the Ward office should be contacted. Its such a beautiful area, its good that citizens like you care enough to speak up to keep it that way.

  • 25th Little Italy

    The UIC Police are tasked with monitoring the neighborhood around the park. I would relay concerns to them.

Break in on West Ohio today

If anyone saw anything suspicious on West Ohio/2100 block please let us know. Two lap top computers were taken in the afternoon from our locked condo. - nothing else that we know of. We think unavailable calls were left on our answering machine first to see if anyone was home?

  • How did you know ComEd was even coming around? They don't normally make announcements in my experience.

    Do you usually have to open a gate to let them in?

  • Kat u village Kat, u village resident

    Usually my husband was able to let them in but not yesterday.. So we left gate open.
