    No Pedro, you're absolutely incorrect. Fact is that the official chamber of commerce in the 49th Ward and neighborhood is the Rogers Park Business Alliance.

  • The Rogers Park Business Alliance is the chamber-in-fact and has lead role on the Clark Street Vision process whereas the chamber-in-name-only does not have an official role nor is the chamber-in-fact. Yes Reid, that also was correctly explained in very clear detail to members of the Chicago Committee on Zoning, Landmarks and Building Standards at a meeting on May 22nd while the chamber-in-name's president was present. And that explanation was not disputed by the chamber president during that discussion.

Hi neighbors,

I have sold my condo, and I'm looking to buy a two or three flat in the Rogers Park area--preferably east, but flexible.

Inventory seems pretty low right now, but if any of you have a heads up on a place coming on the market I would love to hear about it!

In the meantime, since I may have to move out of here before I actually find a building to buy, I am also looking for a dog friendly, reasonably priced studio or one bedroom to rent or sublet. Would appreciate any leads you have in that area as well.

I am a solidly employed, very responsible, reasonably quiet renter with good credit – if that helps. :-)

Thank you!

I don't know if other people have this problem or can hear it. But someone on my street Greenview, repeatedly "calls" numbers all night. I hear the dialing all night with little with no time in between. Not sure who or where or even why, this is going on. Just an FYI if you have a unit that faces the street and you're window is open, everyone else on that street with their window open can hear you! Well i might add!

Sullivan High School's "embrace" of immigrants and refugees featured on WTTW's "Chicago Tonight"

WTTW-TV’s local public affairs program “Chicago Tonight,” last night featured our own Sullivan High School and its renowned English Language Learners Program for immigrants and refugees, who speak little or no English.

Sullivan and its program is the subject of a recently released Chicago Magazine article, which is on newsstands now and will be available online June 5th.

The reporter, Elly Fishman, and Sullivan teacher, Sarah Quintenz, who heads up the program, were interviewed last night by WTTW’s Phil Ponce.

Looking for a Sublet for June, July, August

Last night I found out after having to wait for days that my sublet fell through. Now, I am desperately seeking a sublet. If there is anything out there for the 3 months furnished, unfurnished. Studio, 1 br. I am grateful. I have a little dog and I can afford at max. $ 900.00, while I am finishing my last full time semester in Graduate school and transitioning from part time to full time work. I have good credit.

  • No more than 900.00. I think the deposit for having a dog is 200.00. I should know within a day or two if it will be available. It's a great place. Very clean and spacious feeling.The guy just isn't sure of his plans just yet. Don't want to get your hopes up.

Ignorant Landlord

My daughter has a serious bedbug problem, that somehow started in the apartment building that she lives in. It has been reported to the city, by calling 311. The landlord has been notified on numerous occasions and still has done nothing. Inspector came out and said apartment underneath is totally infested. Daughter has two small boys. It's an extremely frustrating situation. Landlord is not doing anything, and basically told them to move. Does anyone know anything or anyone that can help please.
Thankypu

  • Jay

    Would you mind telling me on which street(s) this building is on? So other tenets can do something too.

  • I can't speak for the original poster, but I live on the 1700 block of W. Wallen. The condo board has already been cited by the city over 6 month ago and so far has done nothing to take care of the multiple violations, including bedbug infestation. So, if you think calling the city is going to solve your problem, think again. Definitely report it to the city, but don't expect things to be resolved with any urgency.

Mice in the neighbor's unit

In our 7-unit building one neighbor (top floor) reports mouse droppings; while all other units report nothing. We're a self-managed association, and now the question raised is this: is the association charged with finding and mitigating the mouse situation, or is it on the one owner who has the issue? Would love to know what folks think of this.

  • Association.

    Not seeing mouse drippings in other units doesn't mean the mice aren't already there.

    Thankfully, our condo doesn't have a mice/rat problem. We do have an annual condo-wide roach treatment. Many of the units are rented out which means we have a lot of traffic/new people coming in and potentially bringing along pests. All units get the roach gel regardless of whether there are roach sightings or not.

  • seems like it has been a bad winter for mice. i have had more than ever.
    i hear rat populations are also high.

    but yeah, association.

I want to offer a beach/water safety class for free to the kids 11 and older of rogers park. To encourage them to come we would offer them a coupon to a local business for a free ice cream or something , if they complete the class and pass a quiz.
I could teach and design the class, with help from lifeguards or some other knowledgable person.
We would need a place for the class, and local businesses to donate.
What do you think? Can we do this?

  • JeanneRP, this is an excellent idea. I suggest all school age children be included. Children need to understand facts about Lake Michigan and water safety at a young age. The junior life guard program at Loyola is for children 8 and up.
