Find out how taxes/TIFs in the 27th Ward have been spent

Just saw this and thought others might be interested.

There is a free meeting about how our taxes/TIFs in the 27th Ward have been spent and allocated, and more. The meeting is on Thursday, November 6, from 6:30pm - 8:30pm, at 1044 W Randolph St.

I’ve always wondered where our taxes were going, how it was being spent, and whether it was being spent on things needed, like parks, schools, traffic relieve.

The meeting is being hosted by Gabe Beukinga, candidate for 27th Ward Alderman, and Tom Tresser of the CivicLab TIF Illumination Project.

Dogs pooping/peeing on roof decks

This not the 1st time I've seen this, but am I the only one grossed out by owners letting their dogs go on roof decks? They are privately owned but part of condos and they eventually pick up the poop, but what about the pee? Grosses me out!!

  • mwalcheske Enthusiast

    There's a guy in 800 block of N Racine who lets his dog out on his balcony, over the sidewalk, to "go". Last winter I was nailed by his dog peeing over my head, ironically, as I walking my dog (you know, so she can pee/poo at street level). Gross. The bottom line: People are extremely lazy. I'm just not.

  • so nasty. my neighbor did this until I reported them to the board.

OHC: It’s Like a Backstage Pass to Chicago’s Architecture

2 Prairie Material Concrete Factory (835 North Peoria Street): I haven’t actually been to this one, but people I know who have been there say it’s pretty cool.

10 The Kemper Building (1 East Wacker Drive): This weekend is the only time this building’s observation deck is open to the public.  The glass is old and foggy, but you get some great insight into the design of the nearby buildings like Marina City and 35 East Wacker.

4 Thalia Hall (1807 South Allport Street): Our own Bill Motchan did a series of articles about the recently restored Pilsen landmark. Formerly a Bohemian residential, retail, and theater building, it’s now a suds house under the protection and care of a local restauranteur-turned-preservationist.

3 Second Presbyterian Church (1936 South Michigan Avenue): Yes, another church.  But this one has a totally different vibe. Instead of gothic-frontiersman style, this one is straight outta Hogwarts.

1 The Pullman Administration Building (11057 South Cottage Grove Avenue): This is the best of the remaining Pullman District buildings.  Ordinarily it’s kept locked...
