This is why i firmly believe politics and private business needs to remain separate. I have been following this situation closely. As a longtime resident I wasn't overly thrilled a bar was replacing provenance. We need locally sourced retail in our neighborhood, as this helps grow the core of what we are all about. I have shopped and supported provenance for over 6 years and was very upset they were leaving their space. I attended a community meeting a few weeks back and was completely surprised by what I heard. Most importantly, these were 3 local residents I.e. small business owners. They planned to keep a retail component w/ their business model, adding produce also & plans to expand to a full on wine/packaged goods & retail component in the building. This wasn't just a bar as what I read on here and provenances FB page. I was very disappointed to find out though that provenance, who started this campaign to stay in the spot via reaching out to the alderman, is now playing dirty pool.

The owners of provenance have quietly spread the word they may be staying. It appears they are threatening to remain in the space unless they are compensated by the building owner in an effort to block the new owners from buying the building. Was this the advice of the alderman interactions? To play the role of poor me then threaten to squat to block a sell of the building? Did the building owner or new owner do something illegal here by giving them 60 days notice to vacate after not agreeing to extend their lease per Provenances FB page? If this is true, Shame on you Provenance for rallying support of our neighborhood, then trying to extort payment because apparently it's only your right to do business in the space.

Signed,
a very disappointed FORMER customer.

    @James - I'm not sure calling people a troll or getting angry about a community post site makes ME feel foolish. No one has provided the answers to the questions that were originally posted. Not you, not anyone. They were legitimate questions. Some of us have tried to discuss them civilly, often asking questions, while others have been consumed with who has more "everyblock street cred." I don't think it makes me a hater, I just wanted to know. As John pointed out, not sure it matters now, let them duke it out. I wish they had not enlisted the help of the community in the first place. But you seem really angry and offensive. I can't imagine it's about this post, so whatever it is, I hope it works out for you. My only other interaction on EB was a month ago -to post a lost kitty I found.

Best way for finding decent renters in Humboldt Pk

I have tried Craigslist and the Reader, and as soon as anyone looks at the address they get spooked and cancel the showing or don't show up.
I am new to the neighborhood in a 3 flat (close to Hamlin and Division) and was wondering if there are neighborhood newspapers or announcements anyone knows of that I could post an ad, or if anyone has any other resources to find a decent tenant in Humboldt Pk/West Humboldt Pk area. Was thinking of visiting churches next. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

  • Please do yourself a favor and be specific about the location, use cross streets, that way you will attract people who want to live at that location at a reasonable price.The price seems good but you should check out what other units are going for in the immediate area.

  • abok abok

    @Susan thanks for the tip however If you look at the Craigslist posting there is google map on the top right with an exact address so I am not sure what you are talking about.

It works great, though, and would look nice in the right dining room. Message me through the site if you'd like to come and pick it up. See attached photo. Thanks.

I told you I'd give you an update on the chandelier adoption and then promptly misplaced your number. The chandelier cleaned up beautifully and works like a charm just as you said it would. It has been very happy in its new home. Thank you so much for your generosity!

26th Ward priorities

New Life Church, corner of Homan and Division, getting prepped for new sidewalks.

I know, I know. Sometimes a new sidewalk is just a new sidewalk.

There have been so many unmet infrastructure and maintenance needs for so many years in this Ward, it seems odd that this improvement would be given priority over tax-paying resident's longstanding problems.

  • I posted some pictures on my page. I took them about a month or so back when the Church had their Hope Fest. Look at the old sidewalks there is nothing wrong with them. That Alderman is just abusing his office. I will be voting for the person running against him.

Free Wood for bonfires/firepits

There is a bunch of free wood in the alley behind 830 N. Hamlin.
Most need to be cut as there are some long pieces.
Must have come from an old floor or deck, some pieces are long, but you can cut them for firewood.

  • Are they painted, sealed or stained? If so, burning them is a sure way to infuse toxins and carcinogens into your s'more recipe.

  • abok abok

    I have no idea. I am just offering that if people want it it's there, people can make their own call on that one.

  • govs20 Pro Engineer, Amateur runner, Ukie Villag resident

    If it's scrap lumber from a hardwood floor or deck, then it's pretreated lumber that would be incredibly toxic (and illegal!) to burn. If the ash were to leach into the city's storm sewer system, it's essentially like pouring straight arsenic into the Chicago river. Ever wonder why you don't see people swimming in the river? Hopefully this stuff is disposed of properly.

I had to 'make and take' a red wiggler bin to get full credit for Master Composter degree and the winter had them 'especially happy' in the basement so I have two huge bins ready to share. You need a plastic tub with lid that has 1/4 inch holes punched in top for air and then we tear up newspaper, throw in a little garden dirt, wet so it is like a 'rung out sponge', and put in the worms. They eat 'left over' lettuce, coffee grounds, etc (except onions, peppers, citrus). Easy VERY EASY to care for in basement or garage (some people keep them under the sink..no smell)
This is the best 'soil' you will find and excellent for seedlings. You separate the worms from the 'soil' (I can tell you how) and use the soil in your garden, house plants, etc. YOU MUST NOT put the worms in composters or soil outside as they are not native and they eat constantly and will eat all the surface plants.
If you are interested, please let me know and it will be another reason for spring to come quickly!@

I was calling about simple things such as: recycling for our block and what can be done about all the solicitation material that is left on our front steps and gates. I even called to try and make an appointment with the Alderman to discuss items in person since I work until 5:30 and cannot make it to his Monday community meetings by 6pm, but did not get a call back. His website says “An operator will take your contact information and record your issues and concerns.Then you will be referred to the proper staff or receive a call back.” But this is not true.

    @Tracy -

    1) I have no context into your situation so I'm not making any judgements. It's also your right to decry the CACC (which, by the way, isn't a "business" - it's a government entity).

    2) Rescues, including PAWS, do not just blindly take in animals and tell the individual(s) releasing those animals that they are taking them. PAWS, like the CACC, is very transparent, and will tell you immediately where the animal will be placed. Sometimes that's with them, but often times, you are correct - they often go to the CACC (PAWS is usually close to full at all times, as that's the entire point of their organization). However there is no conspiracy to "hide" this - it is in fact spelled out clearly when releasing an animal to them.

    3) There is no issue with you stating what is already transparent information, but you clearly have an ax to grind with the CACC. You may consider the CACC "nasty", but editorializing an organization that's both needed in the city (by the population as well as animal rescues) and actively working towards animal welfare is doing no one any favors with your narrow viewpoint. You may have had an unfortunate situation with the CACC, but it's also unfair to paint the org as universally reviled because of it (hence my comments).

    4) I'm not going to have a discussion on CACC politics and operations and further derail this thread.

    If that dog's owners cannot be found (and as @rogerparker says, owners are told to check the CACC first and foremost) and she ends up at the CACC, I can guarantee you that as long as she's not horribly reactive to anyone who approaches her that dog will stay there MAYBE a month (more like two weeks at most). Dogs like that have no problem finding homes and are snapped up instantly at the CACC.

I, along with some neighbors tried to lure him/her toward us, with no luck. Every time we get close, she/he barks and runs away to hide. This is right near Armitage, and I'm so concerned that he's going to get hit by a car.

  • Thanks to everyone here for being so wonderful in your concern for the little guy.

    Hi Geoff, I am full with 4 rescue dogs but just want to make sure he doesn't go back to the bad owners. Hoping you keep the little guy and if not I can help find him a new home. :)
