🛑 Illuminated blinking stop signs

I've noticed for years that motorist don't come to complete stops or don't stop at all driving east and west on George St. and Wellington, between Harlem and Oak Park. I've notice the city put up blinking solar powered stop signs at these types of intersections. I looked into it and the city said I need to request it through the alderman's office. I was thinking if I wasn't the only one to call, the new stop signs could be installed.

    Welcome to the neighborhood! Glad you decided to make our wonderful corner of Chicago home. The Galewood Residents Organization stopped meeting regularly a few years ago. We found public meetings weren't well attended and decided to stop hosting them. Some of the same people still work together to make positive change in the neighborhood. One of our projects is the Galewood Neighborhood of Chicago Facebook page where you will find a lot of information about what's going on in Galewood and surrounding communities.

    You might also enjoy the Galewood website, http://www.galewood.net. The site has not been updated regularly for a while however it has a lot of useful and fun information.

    The neighborhood has many Little Free Libraries and also a Facebook page dedicated to them, of course. https://www.facebook.com/Galewood-Free-Little-Libraries-308577052857581/

Spray painted CPD vehicle

A CPD Canine vehicle was spray painted this morning. Happened between 2am-5:30am on December 14th.

  • joanie 20+ year Resident of Jefferson Park

    Such ignorance and disrespect to the men and women in blue and Chicago taxpayers. Sad that the lowlives weren't caught in the act. Now taxpayers are on the hook to fix the stupidity. Prayers for the officer, whose peace of mind, has been negatively impacted by the vandalism.

  • ddn

    Incredible. And in an area where it is least likely to happen. Here's to hoping they're caught and with great spectacle!

Frequent police presence

I am just curious if anyone knows what has been happening on the 2900 block of Newcastle, specifically on Newcastle and Wellington? For two nights in a row there has been squad cars and a patty wagon. Tonight it was twice that a police car had the street blocked with a street full of cars trying to get through. Just curious if anyone knows anything.
