Crime and grafitti in our neighborhood

I heard that Indian Boundary and some other neighborhoods petitioned for tax breaks on their homes due to declining property values (O'Hare Airport noise) and won their appeals. Maybe we should appeal our property taxes also on the same basis due to the graffiti that is all over our neighborhoods and crime too. There are homes in our area that are just not selling and this is most likely the reason. I also notice that Alderman Arena and Alderman Cullerton are active in their everyblock posts. Guess that our guys, Suarez and Reboyas are too busy.

Blackhawk Park Next Door group

If you live in and around the Blackhawk Park area (Fullerton to Armitage, Cicero to Laramie), you are more than welcome to join the neighborhood Nextdoor group.

    Ignore the 8 day deadline. I talked to the main organizer for NextDoor a few days ago and she has lifted the deadline for ND's in her area. You can also post it on your FB page and see if others might join. Hopefully we get our 10 members quickly and can start making some much needed changes around here. :)

    I just joined the group, but it says the group will dissolve in like 8 days if we don't at least 6 more members by then. I signed up to have postcards sent to neighbors, but that won't be quick enough.. I don't have neighbor email addresses. Hope you can get some more folks on board.

Lloyd Elementary School Parents and Potential Parents

I'd like to know more about our neighborhood school. Per CPS website, Lloyd is it. I'm in the 4900 block of west Altgeld. Are there any organized groups of parents or future parents of Lloyd students?

Gang graffiti

Barry and Lockwood has been hit with lots of gang graffiti for the last few months. Please join me in reporting it to 311 or Ald. Juarez.

  • Deb R Fed-up

    Last time I checked it was Reboyas. Either way they are both useless.

  • Is Suarez is alderman for this street?

Laramie avenue will be closed down from Fullerton to Grand

Fyi: According to a very small electronic road sign, Laramie avenue will be closed between Grand and Fullerton from April 1 to May 31. Take Cicero or Central as a detour so you won't be late to work or school. The sewers are going to be replaced as will the massive pot holes on the streets.

  • Hanson Park Elementary School reviewed

    Hanson Park is an exceptional school. The teachers are very welcoming and understanding. Not only do they have great teaching skills, but also have a great way to communicate with students. They may be hard on the students at times, but after receiving ISAT scores, you'll be able to see that its worth it. Hanson Park has an atmosphere that is welcoming to everyone.

pet sitter or pet obedience school

So we just got a new plotthound from a shelter, he's around 5-6 months and needs training and since my wife and I both work full time we are looking for a sitter/trainer for the first couple of months. Any good place around here? We live around Diverse and Laramie. Thanks!

  • PetParent Founder of Pets Are Like Family

    Wow, you guys have a few challenging months ahead. Hard to train a new puppy with two full time working parents. There are plenty of providers out there though that can lend a hand. I do not recommend sending him away to boarding school if that is what you're thinking....

    Wow, you guys have a few challenging months ahead. Hard to train a new puppy with two full time working parents. There are plenty of providers out there though that can lend a hand. I do not recommend sending him away to boarding school if that is what you're thinking. You should train your own dog for best results. I highly recommend Kiki Yablon. She can do home based training and work around your schedule. She lives in Logan Square and serves the whole north side area. She is a well educated, certified dog trainer. Not somebody who took some 4 week 'how to be a dog trainer' class from some big box store. She is also very involved in helping rescues and other non profits, so she's also just a great person. I used her to train one of my foster dogs in my home and was very impressed. www.kikiyablondogtraining.com

  • I used to have my Westie in a doggie care named The Fuzzy Dog, located at Irving Park and Central Park ave, but since you are in the area, I think this one located at Belmont ave close to Cicero ave will help you more: http://www.chicagocanineacademy.com/

    Please check out the place and research their reviews and the training level of employees. Don't just pick a location because it's close to you. There are many poor quality pet providers all over Chicago.
