Proposal for new low-income project at Division and California for 320 low income residents.

Alderman Maldonado wants to increase low income housing in the 26th ward to 25%. The empty lot by Division and California is a good location for a large multi-unit construction. See rendering of a proposal posted with this message.

Alderman Maldonado wants to increase low income housing in the 26th ward to 25%. The empty lot by Division and California is a good location for a large multi-unit construction. See rendering of a proposal posted with this message.

Alderman Maldonado and low-income housing developers are surveying the 26th ward for locations to build new low income housing projects. Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation and Hispanic Housing Development Corporation have both shown interest in building large low-income constructions throughout the area. Alderman Maldonado has previously worked closely with both of these companies.

Maldonado has a long working history with Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation's executives and know the management very well. You can read about this relationship at:

http://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/roberto-maldonado-the-real-estate-king-of-the-chicago-city-council/Content?oid=1180874

Maldonado is presently working closely on many low-income housing projects with the owner of Hispani Housing Development Corporation. One of these projects is just some few blocks from the intersection Division/California by the Norwegian-American Hospital. The project is called the 65th Infantry Boringueneers Vetarans Low-Income Housing Project. That project will house closely to 100 low-income residents.

    I hate to inform those on this thread who have taken Growth's bait, but this is a troll post. A sham. A fiction with just enough connection to a few real facts to make it plausible, and tap into people's fears. Classic trolling. The rendering of the building is fake. There is no project of this type, "low income housing" or otherwise, proposed for this site. There are more than enough reasons to oppose Maldonado without resorting to this kind of phony garbage on EveryBlock that divides the neighborhood and creates drama and diversion instead of promoting intelligent discourse.

Alderman Roberto Maldonado don't bother to create new jobs for unemployed people in Humboldt Park.

The first store window that people see after having passed Western Avenue traveling west on Division Street is Alderman Roberto Maldonado's old abandoned office. See picture. The 2434 West Division store front has brown paper taped on the windows. Sticky residues remain on the windows showing Alderman Roberto Maldonado's slogan: "Bringing City Services To The People.". The empty store front shows well what he meant by his slogan. Alderman Roberto Maldonado is not interested in bringing new businesses to the 26 Ward and he is not interested in creating jobs for the unemployed people in Humboldt Park.

The 2434 West Division Street store front is at an excellent location and could today have many employers with the right business. The store front is located so that the right business, also, would help to pull in more customers into Humboldt Park. Alderman Roberto Maldonado's abandoned store front is a testimony to his anti-business and anti-job creation agenda.

A person traveling west of Western Avenue on Division Street looking for a restaurant, cafe or any shop will turn around when they see Alderman Roberto Maldonado's abandoned office's store front windows. With large gang signs next to Alderman Roberto Maldonado's windows people will feel as if they are entering dangerous territory. Out of the area visitors will think twice before they stop and shop at any store on Division. Sales are lost thanks to Alderman Roberto Maldonado. No new jobs are added for unemployed people in Humboldt Park.

We know that unemployment creates poverty, stress, crimes and domestic violence. As a psychologist, Alderman Roberto Maldonado knows this is a fact.

We know that unemployment creates poverty, stress, crimes and domestic violence. As a psychologist, Alderman Roberto Maldonado knows this is a fact. Thanks to unemployment gangs are still very active in Humboldt Park and a stronger business environment with jobs for all is the only way to get an end to it.

Kids do not dare to go out and play without fear caused by gang members and other criminals in the neighborhood. This is not just a physical problem for our children but also a psychological issue that will affect the young through their life.

New research from the University of Missouri-Kansas and Georgia State University found a substantive “link between physical safety concerns and psychological distress”. Children who live in violent neighborhoods are more prone to developing Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. (If you do not know what this is, Google PTSD.) In short, daily fear changes children's and young adult's psychological make-up so drastically that nightmares, flashbacks and disassociation are common. We even know that fear has a demonstrable impact not only on the mental health, but on physical health as well.
Alderman Roberto Maldonado knows the mental impacts caused by unemployment as he has studied psychology. Still, he has ignored to develop a robust job creation program for Humboldt Park. There has been no increase in jobs available in Humboldt Park during Roberto Maldonado's period as an Alderman here. Humboldt Park's unemployment is 17%. That is more than 3 times the national average.
To change the economical make up of Humboldt Park, vote for Adam Corona. Adam Corona knows that an effective job creation policy is the solution to Humboldt Park's problems and he has demonstrated that he is willing to work for it. For a better and more productive Humboldt Park, vote for Adam Corona as our Alderman February 24, 2015.

    Went to the meet and greet last night to learn about the candidate and must say I like what I heard. Corona doesn't seem like your typical politician, rather he wants to do for HP what he's been doing for a long time...roll up his sleeves and work! Had to leave a bit early, but these were my big takeaways...
    Long time HP resident who has volunteered and done much for his community without getting paid so imagine how much more he will do if he is elected.
    Currently works for another ward and understands how to get things done.
    Not all about the greenbacks, will donate 5% of salary to CPS schools in 26th ward.
    Has some ideas to spur business growth particularly on Paseo.
    Made it clear that he is not anti PR and will not be removing the flags (in fact most of his staff was PR)!
    Said he was not career politician and just going to serve 2 terms as alderman to straighten things out.
    Tough on gangs and shady businesses.
    Will open some Saturdays for constituents who cant make it to ward night.
    Not all about gentrification. Wants HP to retain its character and diversity, while still being welcoming and inclusive.
    Hope that helps ;-)

We have four small dogs and two kids so we can't take the risk and bring her home but I have her at my work in a small room for the night to see if we can find her owner before I have to call the pound. Please share and help us try and find her owners? I volunteer and have fostered for animal rescues but they generally will not take a dog without it going to the pound and then pulling so I am trying this first.

Center for Changing Lives moves to Bickerdike's commercial space at Zapata Apartment Building

Having celebrated 25 years of services to households on the Northwest side of Chicago in 2014, Center for Changing Lives (CCL) celebrates a new milestone with an expanded community service center on Armitage Avenue.  Lissette Castaneda, CCL’s Community Engagement Coordinator, says, “Thanks to the services that CCL offers, community residents do not need to access financial services that are costly and exploitative.  CCL is now further embedded in the community to offer residents services that can change their financial circumstances and thereby, their lives.” In 2014, nearly four hundred community residents increased their net income, net worth or their credit score.

The feeling of paranoia fell upon Alderman Roberto Maldonado as left his office after dark.

Alderman Roberto Maldonado's stepped out of his office on Division Street and felt that someone was keeping an eye on him. As the Alderman walked passed the empty buildings and undeveloped lots he felt both lonely and scared. He knew that if he could just identify the person then he could eliminate this threat, but he could not see who it was.

As the Alderman walked passed the empty buildings and undeveloped lots he felt both lonely and scared. He knew that if he could just identify the person then he could eliminate this threat, but he could not see who it was.

This is how social media sites functions allowing people to follow politicians online and comment on their work without the politician being able to threaten or harass the person. The ability to stay anonymous and still share information is changing everything. Let's change the politics in Humboldt Park.

I saw that you, Alderman Roberto Maldonado, started a new account here on EveryBlock with the purpose of trying to undermine critical voices against you. The account is using the name "debloetz" . For example, you are trying to make people think that I work for a competing politician. I think it's scary that you waste time on such work instead of explaining why you work against the working class, unemployed and underemployed people in your ward.

See photo. See how scary 2734 West Division Street store front looks after dark. No wonder Division Street between Western and California does not attract any customers after dark.

Shame on you Alderman Roberto Maldonado for letting business after business fail right outside of your office.

This must be how Alderman Roberto Maldonado perceive business on Division Street?

Unfortunately, businesses on Division Street between Western and California does not seem to do very well. I walked by one of the nicer late night restaurant on Division Street last weekend. As I walked by a man who I guess were either the owner or an employee stood by the window looking at me smiling. The restaurant was completely empty. I felt sorry for him and I would have gone in for a bite but I had just had dinner. Sorry! He had Alderman Roberto Maldonado's re-election poster in the window. I was wondering if he understood that the political agenda driving Alderman Roberto Maldonado actually keep customers away from his store? He actually looses thousands of dollars every year because of Roberto Maldonado. Or, maybe, he does not see it that way?

Alderman Roberto Maldonado does not understand businesses that require a constant stream of customers to survive and to hire people. He is simply the wrong Alderman for anyone who need to work for his or her living.

Shame on you Alderman Roberto Maldonado for working against the working people.

As I look out my window, I was wondering what do my neighbors see out of their windows. Are there sights that bother you and ones that you love? There is a tree in the next yard that crows live in, I find them fascinating. Next to that is a garage that has never been finished. It is half sided and half roofed, has been that way for years.

    The world is not like that anymore. The BOSS has to say: get this done or nothing happens.

    We pay taxes whether we own or rent. We typically do not get the service we pay for. It is in our best interest to BE SURE that the workers who come out DO THE WORK.

    This is where the citizen falls short. The citizen needs to show the BOSS that someone came, they did not do their job....and to get rid of the SLACKER. Until we do this; taxpayer $$ is wasted in huge volumes and it bankrupts the city.

    We all have the ability to help the mayor clean house. We just have to buckle down and do it and not wait for someone else.

    The view outside my front window is significant architecturally interesting buildings. 20 years ago it was vacant abandoned buildings. Out my back window is a very large complex of section 8 buildings that are meticulously groomed but have problematic tenants. That has changed to fewer problematic tenants from an alley full of drug dealers . We owe that to Phil Cline and the old Mayor Daley who helped put up a fence along the entire block at the alley because drug dealers would dart in and out of the buildings to avoid police. We owe that to Charles L Williams who was patrol deputy.

    That is the change for us in 20 years. Our block is also 17.8% more populated than 20 years ago due to the Building Department shutting down all the abandoned buildings. That is significantly better than adjacent blocks with negative (-) growth.

    This +17.8% population growth is a testimate that emails to the mayor and commissioner will improve the situation of the neighborhood. They do a better job than our alderman.

After 16 years, I now live in a neighborhood with traffic congestion, overrun with outsiders, disturbing our peace and quiet and trashing our lawns. These kids don't live here. Why not move Chi-arts to their neighborhood? If it was closer to their home, their parents wouldn't have to drive to pick them up. At least, have some consideration and relocate it on a public transportation line! In the meantime, I am applying for a reduced assessment that will more accurately reflect the reduction in our quality of life. Oh.. I am also looking for a new Alderman...

  • Okay, let's be honest. Since the massive round of school closings, only ONE vacant school building has been sold. The chances that Lafayette would have been sold and redeveloped as condos is so super miniscule, that it's ridiculous to think that was a viable solution. I'd say that even if you dislike the students hanging around place, it's probably the best solution we could have hoped for in the neighborhood. But I still love having Chi Arts here, seems like lots of other people do, too.

    1) contact the school http://chiarts.org/contact/ and ask them to A) talk with their students about litter and respecting peoples properties and B) suggest to them to do a campaign on don't litter, Example they are an ART school, have them make it a project to update the "Give a hoot — don't pollute!" campaign from the 70's( which I think they should do everywhere in the city, schools, park district etc): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodsy_Owl

    that would be a win win for the neighborhood, school and city. It raises the awareness of the students about pollution/garbage and waste while learning their craft.

    2) get signature pages from the alderman's office, go door to door on your block and ask your neighbors if they want to sign for permit parking. you need 80% of your block, submit it to the alderman's and then follow up once a month to see if it was passed at city council. Once passed you need to check again to see when you will be getting the signs.

This off-leash problem is rampant and ridiculous and those who do it are ruining the park for the rest of us, a public park paid for by everyone.

Keeps police cars in the area and alert. An dog-off-leash call is not going to get responded to until after more urgent calls. And, resources are allocated to a police district in part by the number of 911 calls it responds to.

Hi,

Woman has different concerns than men and I want to influence the outcome in the election by bringing attention to woman's concerns. The reason for me to start today is that I heard that NPR is having several programs this coming week specifically discussing what woman want from politicians in Chicago.

Humboldt Park politics has for years been steered by male agendas while woman's concerns has been silenced. One of my greatest concerns is the lack of emphasis for economical development in the 26th Ward. The lack of economical development affects woman at all levels.

My highest priority is job creation and business development in Humboldt Park. I am concerned about the lack of jobs for young people who graduate from school. Without an entry job and without any tutoring there is no future. Teenagers and youth loose their hope and turn to any possibility for making money which can be crimes and gang activity. Only a strong job creation program can solve this problem.
