The old Duke's

Does anyone know what is going on with the old Duke's? I know that there is supposed to be another grocery store.Then last week there was a notice from the city that the work order was stopped because things were being done without the proper permits. Now that the sign is gone, I don't see any activity. It would be nice if someone would get it together for a change.

  • From the failure of the past two stores in that location, I think it's safe to say we really don't need another produce/grocery store there.

  • radiochck Trying to escape

    I think that we do. I don't have a car and don't have anyone to drive me around. I live a block and a half away from there and it was great to have something there for a small shopping trip.

Among all of the issues we voice here, what is your #1 concern?

Mine is the increased amount of crime/break-ins.

  • Having a grocery store at Devon/Milwaukee is a convenience I miss. I support local business like Happy Foods but they can't compete with the breadth of offerings at a Jewel, etc.
    Shop and Save...your public awaits you!!!

  • Thread was listed under Edison Park. Devon / Milwaukee is Norwood so I believe losing the Dominick's was probably a hit over there for convenience. As far as Edison Park goes I believe it's a very convenient location and Ebinger is an awesome elementary school. Plus it's nice to have 4 parks within walking distance to my crib

Avondale and Devon: NEED a stop light. Legal liability and hazard

Hello,
The area by the Alderwoman's Restaurant....Devon and Avondale in Edison Park is a real hazard for pedestrians as well as automobiles. We need a stop light there. It is a legal liability and an accident waiting to happen. Too many cars trying to criss cross and as a pedestrian it is quite a danger to cross the street there. I am not talking about this being a danger because of that construction on the corner. I am talking about ALL THE TIME. Please take care of this alderwoman if you read this. Thank you.

  • I recommend crossing at Olcott if you don't want to dodge the texters not paying attention

  • Erin23...O'Connnor's business is EXACTLY where it was suggested that there be an increased level of traffic control more conducive to foot and auto traffic...so yes this is about her and her business and a conflict of interest.

Thanks CPD, and whoever else provided security at Olympia Park

What a difference compared to prior EP Fest weekends. Thank you SO MUCH for being there and controlling the activity in Olympia Park and protecting the area. :)

  • There was violence at Olympia park last night. There was a neighborhood kid sucker punched and sent to the ER.

  • CWCEdisonPark Olympia Park

    OMG - what time was that at? I hope the kid is OK. I thought they had it under control. It was better than previous years, but one person injured is one too many.

  • Yes, It was very noticeable on the heightened security at Olympia Park. Thank you EP Chamber of Commerce and CPD. The kids were cleared from the park every night by 10:30. Sunday night the police didn't even allow the kids to hang out there. Only damage heard about at Olympia park was the graffati on the building and trash/broken bottles etc. at the park. .

Answer from Alderman Mary O'Connor

An ordinance was passed by the City Council yesterday which further restricts the power of the City Council's Inspector General to investigate alleged wrong doing on the part of alderman. In this day and age with the City Council's history of sordid corruption, if anything the Inspector General's powers need to be expanded not diminished. For reasons unknown, our own 41st Ward Alderman Mary O'Connor voted for this ordinance. As our public representative I think Alderman O'Connor needs to explain to the people who elected her as to why she voted for this ordinance which will only serve to protect alderman accused of wrong doing.

Coyote Sighting

While walking in front of Edison School last night, I saw a coyote cross the intersection of Clarence and Olcott. It was about 10:00 p.m. Unfortunately, by the time I fumbled for my phone to snap a picture, it had continued south towards Myrtle.
Please keep an eye on your small pets!!

  • Yes, Coyotes are out here. I saw one last year at Devon/Canfield real early in the morning at around 6:30a.m. It was on the Chicago/Park Ridge border so I called Park Ridge, figuring that they would send an Animal Control guy to catch it. The dispatcher's advice to me was...

The dispatcher's advice to me was " just stay away from it." Really?
    Anyway, I thought that coyotes were nocturnal but obviously they roam the area during the day, too.
    Best advice is keep the garbage cans securely covered so they cant feed off the garbage & call 311.

  • PattyC328 Have lived in Oriole Park for 42 yrs!

    I saw one in the handicapped/maternity parking spots directly in front of the main entrance to Resurrection Hospital on Talcott a few months ago at approx 8pm.

  • It might be the same Coyote that we all saw. Obviously, he has been here for some time. It's just something that we have to be aware of. If you see him, just make sure that you report him. Several years back, I saw a truck with strange antennas on top of it. The driver told me that he was tracking coyotes with this equipment. So obviously there is some program in place that tracks these animals down.

Airplane noise

Is it naive to think that continuing to enter complaints into the 311 system specific to the airplane noise will make any difference? There are stretches of time that we get planes directly overhead every 90 seconds for an hour to an hour and a half straight.

Thank you

Thank you to a couple of very nice neighbors who recommended this site to me a couple of days ago. And those plastic bag holders were an awesome idea by the city for picking up the dog doo doo;) The ones @ Olympia Park When I get the chance I have a bunch of plastic bags to add to them. It was a great idea for helping to keep the park cleaner. Thank you. Good idea!!

Sincerely, Park dist. mom (the one that walks all the time.)

Overhill to become one-way southbound

Overhill ave will become one-way southbound from N/W Hwy to Owen in the near future to reduce traffic on Overhill.
If you'd ask me, it should be one-way from N/W Hwy to Touhy. Why is Edison Park free of one-way streets anyway? Cars constantly getting mirrors broken off because of two cars squeezing though.
Please don't say people are going to go faster if it was. Cars speed down here constantly at 40mph plus. And by the way, Get off the cell phone while driving!!!

  • CWCEdisonPark Olympia Park

    Lunker/Natmart - So agree. Last night, during a youth baseball game, there was a minivan parked and blocking the sidewalk - for 2 hours. It's sad that I've given up on calling the cops. I actually don't blame the cops. From what I understand they are being dispersed to other areas that have more crime. Interesting, we've had more break-ins around Olympia park in the past year than we've had in the 10 plus years that I've lived here.

  • How many times walking and driving through EP do you see the police? Now go to other areas of the city and tell me how many you see. They go where they are assigned and everyone says we have no crime. When was the last time you saw or heard...

    How many times walking and driving through EP do you see the police? Now go to other areas of the city and tell me how many you see. They go where they are assigned and everyone says we have no crime. When was the last time you saw or heard our alderwoman in the media demanding that we get the city services that we pay for in our taxes. Yes we have had a few playlots redone, but our parks still pale in comparison to others in the city. I want to feel safe sending my kids to the parks or letting them ride their bikes. Crime is higher in EP than it was in the past...and what is the one main factor that has changed....?????

The decline of Edison/Norwood Park

My Neighbor went into the 41st Ward office last week to complain about the excessive airplane noise in the 41st ward. Mr. Hernandez the alderman's secretary basically told him to get lost ( in a nice way ). Now after 40 years in the neighborhood he and his wife are moving. With the new run way going in service next year and the noise getting worse, Are property values about to take a big hit? Even if you don't mind the noise a perspective buyer might feel different. The neighborhood is made up of City workers, that have no choice but to live here. What happens when good people like my neighbor start leaving ?
Starting to see a lot of moving vans and for sale signs in Park ridge. Is this the start of the decline of Edison / Norwood Park ?

  • Sure is quiet when they are not running.

  • CWCEdisonPark Olympia Park

    I've been here for 10 years and it has increased, substantially, just this year. On Sundays, starting at 1pm, there is a plane every 2 minutes for 1.5 hours. Right now, it's about the same. It did not used to be this way. Maybe it doesn't bother some, but it bothers me. I hope the Alderman views these posts.. but guessing not.
