Summer 2014 Community Celebration for the Neighborhood Connection Project

Sat, Aug 16, 2014 10am-12pm

Started in Spring of 2010, the Neighborhood Connection Project (NCP) is a citizen-led initiative to build community by beautifying the Metra underpass at Kinzua, Hiawatha and Lehigh. After securing the input and support of a diverse cross section of the citizens, civics, businesses and community, as well as the support of the 41st Ward Aldermanic Office for required pre-beautification repairs to the underpass, we were joined by our ongoing partners, Green Star Movement (GSM) and After School Matters (ASM).

Started in Spring of 2010, the Neighborhood Connection Project (NCP) is a citizen-led initiative to build community by beautifying the Metra underpass at Kinzua, Hiawatha and Lehigh. After securing the input and support of a diverse cross section of the citizens, civics, businesses and community, as well as the support of the 41st Ward Aldermanic Office for required pre-beautification repairs to the underpass, we were joined by our ongoing partners, Green Star Movement (GSM) and After School Matters (ASM). Phase I underpass beautification efforts were ready to begin and indeed started finally in Spring 2013. GSM worked with ASM's teen interns and our local artists and community volunteers to produce the mural on the East side of the underpass, which was completed in Summer 2013. We continued together on Phase II completing the West wall work in summer 2014. During summer 2015 we will finish the project by joining the two bricolage murals together in the center. The joining of the East and West sides of the mosaic will be done by meeting in the middle with a golden stake. In the case of NCP, we will use golden tiles. The themes of the mural were decided by the community and the actual art reflects both our neighborhood's history, as well as the greenery and vegetation of the area. Special homage is paid to our Native American predecessors and the famous Hiawatha train that ran on these very tracks. Upon completion, NCP will be the largest outdoor public art bricolage mural on Chicago's Northwest side.

So far, the NCP community includes:

* 300+ citizens
* 60 teen apprentices
* 23 businesses
* 7 artists
* 4 local civics
* 2 government agencies
* 1 Alderwoman
* 1 Chamber of Commerce
* 1 Public Library
* 1 Railroad Historical Society
* Green Star Movement
* After School Matters

Truck and 2 guys to move some furniture?

If anyone does any side jobs moving things? I am trying to get DR table, 8 chairs, buffet from Northbrook to me in Edgebrook. 10.4 miles. I called a moving company (Burrows) and they want $300. This is more than I want to pay. Its not difficult furniture.

  • Unless you have a friend who will help you move it for free you aren't going to do too much better than $300. That price is not unreasonable.

  • Check out Task Rabbit. I've used it many times and it's always been a good experience.

New Aldi and Costco gas station at Melvina and Touhy

An Aldi is being built along with the Costco gas station at Melvina and Touhy. This will exponentially cause a greater Niles’ generated traffic impact on North Edgebrook/Wildwood as outlined in the letters below and cause a greater impact on North Edgebrook/Wildwood streets that are still needing repair from last winter. History is repeating itself as this is exactly what happened 20 years ago when Target first went in, North Edgebrook residents where kept in the dark by Niles. It is time for Chicago to stop being Niles’ fool.
