    I just wish he'd clean up our filthy ward and remove all of the open-air drug markets and public drinking throughout our major thorough ways. I took photos of the trash, over grown weeds, trash in the parks and tall grass along Madison and some side streets. I didn't see a way for me to upload them on this post and I don't want to start another one.

    We all need to talk to neighbors on each side of us, above, beneath and to the rear. And tell everyone we know in the 28th ward NOT TO VOTE for Jason Ervin!!! When re-election time comes around, I'll be sure to early vote!!

    If you want to get photos on this post...start an album. Send the link to this post and we can open the link. Lable it by say address.

    EVERYBODY please make an album and post the disgusting conditions of your ward so everyone can see!!!

    It used to be that picassa could make an album that you could link to. Not sure how that process works because things have changed in the last couple years.

There was a vacancy sign in the front window. The boys jumped the fence in the rear and attempted to kick the back door in before they were chased away by the owner. The boys ran towards the 3300 block W on Carroll. Be on the look out for these (3) boys. The smaller one had a maroon jacket, khaki pants and new white low-cut gym shoes. The second one had on a light gray hoodie jacket with black pants. The third one had on a green hoodie jacket with brown pants. They were cleanly dressed. One of them was so small with brown and blonde short dreads, he fit through the separation of the fence. The other (2) are slender and taller.

    I hope the police soon arrest these boys. Someone is going to get hurt eventually.

    YES, if someone is in your home...DON'T walk in! A few years ago a woman walked into her house and an intruder was there. He stabbed her 17 times and she was in the hospital because of that attack.

The Hispanic Housing Development Corporation together with the Norweigan-American Hospital Inc. has sent in an application for a change in zoning to build a hugh 60 feet high 4 story, 49 unit building in the middle of the neighborhood. If the hospital does this to one of its properties it can do it to other areas as well and the entire neighborhood will be blocked by huge unsightly buildings. This will bring down the property values for every property owner. This company is, also, responsible for other ugly buildings in Humboldt Park.

The property is located at 1045 N Sacramento Avenue, 1049 N Francisco Ave. The building will include 49 affordable dwelling units, tenant ancilliary areas such as recreation areas and library as well as 42 exterior parking spaces. They want to change the zoning from 2 story houses and create this huge complex instead. I see this as a big problem.

The way to fight this rezoning is described in the following websites:

    I explained a basis to oppose the zoning change that was noted in an article attached to this thread. Perhaps you mistake my point.

    The article explains in part that courts rule negatively to perceived spot zoning changes:

    Why Do Courts React Negatively?

    Courts rule against spot zoning, when they believe it exists, based on two ideas:

    • Fundamental fairness. Often the suspicion is that perhaps the person seeking the change is a friend of some decision-maker or is owed a political favor. Or perhaps just is an influential person around town.

    • The strong legal nexus (connection) between land use planning and zoning. The ordinance is legally defensible to the extent it is based on good analysis and study of desirable future land use. When something looks so fishy that no reasonable planning commission would perceive it as a logical and desirable land use pattern, then the court may well say that's spot zoning.

    I do agree with your comment Bonita concerning economic development. Also thanks for the delayed welcome been here since 01. Much obliged.

Turkey V

Has anyone seen what appears to be a turkey vulture circling around California and Augusta?
I noticed it appear after a kid fell off his bike and skinned his knee. Smelling blood, the turkey-v swooped down at the boy. Thankfully the boy's brother was there with a baseball bat and took a few whacks at his beak.
I'm worried about one of the neighborhood kids being carried away and snacked upon. Please be alert guys.

  • I used to live by an enormous group of turkey vultures. It freaked me out how they would fly in circles, like in the cartoons. Then I learned that is just their social flight. They aren't so much looking for something to die as they are leaving their nest and landing again, in a certain order, to establish their order and dominance.

    Are there really turkey vultures living in the city? The ones I've seen come in 6-foot wing spans!!!

  • Speaking of turkeys... The Smoke Daddy is smoking a whole bunch of them for Thanksgiving! Order yours today...and maybe you should also order one for the vultures as a peace offering. #buyaturkeysavealife

Mariachi Band Recommendations?

I want to surprise my husband with a mariachi band for his birthday party in a couple of weeks. Does anyone have recommendations for a great band to hire just to play for an hour or so? Any ideas of how much I should expect to pay?
Thanks in advance.

    Thanks so much for the recommendation but unfortunately, that's far out of the budget I was thinking of.
    Plus, my husband would probably be delighted to have a group of drunk musicains show up and play mariachi for an hour ;-)

Hi good folks of EB!

The shelter is (again) in desperate need of the following items if you're able to donate (used items are more than ok, they just need to be clean).

I'll be dropping off the donations on Sat Oct 25, so there's plenty of time. I can pick up at your house or you can drop off at mine (near North and California Aves - message me for phone number and address).

Here's the list:
- dog or cat beds
- towels, blankets, anything clean, warm and fuzzy they can lay on
- treats of any kind
- dog and cat food (for the pet food pantry so people in need can keep their beloved animals and those animals stay out of these kinds of kill shelters)
- toys: chew toys (like nyla bones or kongs) and non-stimulant stuffed toys (no squeekers please - gets them too riled up in their cages)
- puppy potty training pads (there's a huge shortage of workers/volunteers, so they don't get walked often. If they have these, it means they don't have to sit in their pee/feces and it helps reduce the spread of disease.
- cleaning products of any kind to help keep the place disinfected
- heating pads (for kittens, bunnies or even the little squirrels they help nurse back to health)
- leftover dog or cat medicines or vitamins

I was just there on Monday and would love to get them stocked up on towels/beds etc so all the animals have somewhere warm and comfortable to lay (it really helps reduce stress for them).

I've attached some pictures from the last run I did for donations from you great folks! You can see the animals really love the blankets and beds! :)

And if you're thinking of adopting or want to foster some of these sweet babies, hit me up! More foster homes = we can get more of these animals out of kill shelters!

Thanks so much folks!

HUMBOLDT PARK — The Puerto Rican Cultural Center bought a former sausage warehouse on Division Street as it works to build an arts center that will include a performing arts theater, studio and living quarters for artists and a piano lounge.

The Paseo Boricua Arts Center is to built on Humboldt Park's Paseo Boricua, the strip of Division Street between California and Western.

The Puerto Rican Cultural Center kicked off its 5-year strategic plan to preserve and support the Puerto Rican community in Humboldt Park with the purchase of the warehouse at 2713 W. Division St., the former home of the Ashland Sausage Company.

“The acquisition of those properties is a major step in trying to commercially and culturally anchor our community as it faces the onslaught of an ever encroaching gentrification process which seeks to erase our historical memory from the Greater Humboldt Park community,” read an announcement from Ald. Roberto Maldonado’s office.

The properties will be converted into the new center, which will include 14 live/work space for community artists, a 99-seat theater for performance arts and dramatic productions, a retail arts gallery and a “wines of Latin America/Spirits of the Caribbean Piano Lounge,” according to Maldonado’s office.

The 3,000 square foot building sits across from the Puerto Rican Cultural Center along Paseo Boricua.

“The project will definitely invigorate the financial development of the community, and will provide a place where artists can realize themselves both economically and creatively,” according to Maldonado’s office. “It will truly foment a sense of place for our cultural workers.”

Belmont Bank will provide financing for the project. The Division Street Business Development Association, and its executive director Eduardo Arocho, will manage the initiative.

    This is why it is frustrating when others insinuate that many are just being overly-sensitive about what is going on in HP. As stated in an earlier comment, just do a little more digging and all this info is available to you. There is literally nothing new in the article and if anything, it does not go deep enough.
    While you are researching, follow the roots of the 'Se Vende' Campaign.
    Again, there is room for a thriving, safe and developed HP for all without losing the soul of the immigrants that built this community but to do that there needs to be a tolerance. Tolerance does not include calling newcomers 'Barbarians'.

Thinking that steel flags can go up to mark your territory like a dog pissing on a fire hydrant and let it run down to the ground, is not acceptable for anyone in the neighborhood.

Forming a ceramics/pottery co-op!

Hello, we are in the process of forming co-op for ceramicists that need a space to throw and fire their work. The goal is to pool our resources together so that we can get a space where we can work. We can also use this space to have monthly gallery openings so that we can show our work to the neighborhood. We have three people interested so far, anyone on here interested?

Also, does anyone know of potential places where we could set up a kiln? It would have to be a place that we could vent, like somewhere that used to be equipped for a kitchen.

Thanks neighbors!

    Hey Michael - was not intending to throw any negativity into the mix. If it sounded like I was, my apologies. I fully admit I have a true love / hate relationship with bikers. Ones that follow the rules of the road, or at least don't do anything that may cause harm, I'm all for. I see a lot of bikers, however, that should not be riding on city streets, especially ones without bike lanes. They don't seem to have the appropriate spatial ability to discern how close they are to parked cars vs moving cars. During rush hours, having those types of riders on certain roads can cause a great deal of havoc. And yes, I say the same thing about crappy drivers as well.

  • Not everyone can bike, but if more who could would, the congestion around Humboldt Park wouldn't be so bad. The original poster is right - trying to drive in this city during rush hour can be depressing - literally so, in fact.

    Biking on Chicago's streets can be intimidating at first, but everyone starts somewhere. I ride from the Humboldt Park area to the west loop every day and would be happy to ride along with anyone who is interested by nervous about doing so alone.

    Biking to public transit may also be an option for those who are sick of being stuck in traffic. The transit coverage in Humboldt Park leaves much to be desired, but the transit options expand greatly for anyone willing to bike a mile or so (approximately 5 minutes of biking at a moderate pace).

Halloween Decorations 2014

Hello neighbors! Just wanted to say, it is great to see more seasonal décor going up. If you have never thought about doing so, remember that it helps the overall look/appearance of the neighborhood. It may seem like a small thing, but it makes the n'hood look more inviting. Please rake leaves, pickup trash, put up some lights, Halloween or autumnal décor(if you're into that sort of thing). Tend to shrubbery, trees and gardens. And if you have a porch light, please use it. Lights can deter a lot of mischief. Let's keep the neighborhood on track of looking great, as we have been doing!!

A committee sounds like a wonderful idea (inviting all opinions) to sort out 2015 plans. Run the idea through your Alderman's office and invite the CAPS Beat representative as well. Organize!
