Chicago Speed Camera Map: watch out for one by Lane Tech High School

https://mapsengine.google.com/map/viewer?mid=zDIlbNW6Kzv4.kWRTNheTjAho

Just an fyi, speed cameras in school zones are set if you go over 20 mph. Watch out for one at 2501 W. Addison by Lane Tech High School. The normal speed limit is 30 mph and the cameras run longer than expected (6am - 9pm?) not just during school hours. $100 ticket.

  • Smartphone users download the app "waze"

    Best nav app on the planet

    Notifications for cops cams hazards and traffic while driving

  • i agree - waze will warn you about those speed and traffic light tickets - or navigate you around them if the traffic is heavy.

  • Neighborly1~ Values community.

    When is the city going to tell us in some effective way that the hours/rules have been changed? This is just ridiculous. Out of control.

Water shut off 5-9PM today

Just notified at 2:30PM by management that water is going to be off from 5-9PM tonite by City of Chicago for emergency repairs. I'm near Vic Theatre. Anyone else get this "late" notice or is management covering their you know what?

  • OMG

  • Just spoke with someone from the Alderman's office and the area affected should be Belmont & Seminary where they are connecting a waterline. Work will only take an hour or hour and a half, so shouldn't last until 9PM.

    Hope that helps!

Recent Mice Infestation in our Building

Just moved to the North Center this summer in the neighborhood that borders the river near Campbell and Pensacola, I was wondering if any other neighbors have had recent mice issues in their buildings or homes. My management company and veteran building neighbors say it is the first infestation they have seen. Several neighbors have moved out this month some due to the problem. Has anyone had any success with eradicating mice as a renter, if so any advise you can pass along about my rights or steps I can take to get the management company moving on fixing the problem.

  • Unregistered, sounds like I'm in the building across Campbell from you. I've gorva different management company. Neighborly1- I've seen mice in the home even caught a live one one.

    Unregistered, sounds like I'm in the building across Campbell from you. I've gorva different management company. Neighborly1- I've seen mice in the home even caught a live one one. The flies usually come when. A mouse dies in the wall. Its very unsettling, usually about 2 dozen flies and many are very slow and lazy from gorging on the mouse corpse. Its really gross and and can be accompanied by a bad smell depending on how close the dead mouse is to your unit. My management co knows and is not taking steps to remove the bodies or eradicate the infestation.

  • Once there is nesting in the walls, it's almost impossible to single handedly stop them. I know there's a tool, RIDDEX PLUS. You plug into the walls and will emit some sound that drives away rodents/pest bugs . Also you can spray peppermint around the house. I do this anyway...

    Once there is nesting in the walls, it's almost impossible to single handedly stop them. I know there's a tool, RIDDEX PLUS. You plug into the walls and will emit some sound that drives away rodents/pest bugs . Also you can spray peppermint around the house. I do this anyway with having a doggy. Not trying to bring fleas around. Apparently it's a fix for rodents too. I honestly wish there was a way to have the management company step in. (Found out in my building they are willing to pay for "renovations" from 1 to 2 bedrooms, take out the dining room, and charge 6-700 more on rent. But are completely uninterested in eradicating this rodents issue. Long less gaining another dumpster.) Can't help but feel alone on actually fixing the problem, huh.

Nightly disturbances in alley south of waveland, north of addison, between hamilton and hoyne.

Hi,

For the past 2 weeks or so, I have been woken up every night by very loud, seemingly deliberate noises (garbage bin shaking, metal screeching, pounding) coming from my alley. At first, they were consistently occurring at 4:30am. The past few nights, I have been hearing them anywhere between 2am and 4:30am.

Normally, these alleys are very quiet. These noises in the wee hours of the morning are easily the loudest during any hour in that area with the exception of maybe garbage and recycling pick up.

I would really appreciate any help.

Thanks!

    Regular 4:30am disturbances anywhere sound like a pattern. Many Chicago bars close at 4am rather than at 2am. Late night drinkers/partiers going home from a 4pm bar sound more likely the cause than raccoons. I doubt that those staking out or trying to break into garages would deliberately make such noise. Drunken idiots seems to make more sense. I would think that calling 311 rather than 911 would be the correct option, See:https://portal.chicagopolice.org/portal/page/portal/ClearPath/Communities/Districts/District12/Special%20Services/012RightCall.pdf
    For the 911/311 When to Call List, 911 calls are for:
    Police and Fire Emergencies
    * Crime in progress
    * Immediate threat to life/bodily injury
    * Major property damage or loss
    * Dispatch of a squad car
    If you are also getting other indications that you may be targeted, such an phone call hang-ups, letters, graffiti, threatening emails, verbal harassment, etc. I would call 911 and mention any previous incidents or details about you, your family, or home being targeted. If they are just making noise or a mess by the trash cans then it should probably be a 311 call. 311 is also the number to call for broken alley lights, alley potholes, dead animals or rat problems in an alley. If gangs are working the area the noise may be a signal to fellow in an alley around 4:30am is possible, but most would want to be nearer to lights and traffic if they are awake and wanted to be safer . Most thinking people with some common sense would not make deliberate noise. Many residents may be armed and may be in a bad mood after being awaken at 4:30am.
    Why do anything to possibly provoke such a person into reacting badly or calling the police?

Day-time Home Burglary and Night-time Garage Thieves

On Sept 11th our home was broken into by criminals and several items were stolen with rooms and walls vandalized in the process. This was done between the hours of 9am and 1:30pm, but most likely around 11am. This is when a neighbor saw a white van parked behind our garage in the alley.

The police are investigating, but in response, we installed some Dropcams around the house and 36 hours later we caught a man in our yard at 3:30am. Below is a link to the video. Watch starting on the upper left side of the screen as he begins in our neighbors yard and make his was to the alley.

    Great video. These guys work in packs, two or more, one acting as a lookout and often times another guy in a car to help load the stolen items. Did anyone notice someone walking in the alley while this scumbag was in the yard? Surveillance is great after the fact to help law enforcement track these thieves. I like to add deterrent elements so that the act will actually be thwarted and I won't become victimized. In addition to surveillance, I have motion activated alarms in my garage that give out a piercing sound when it detects movement. I have these connected to simple timers that power them up after a certain time when there are no in/outs in the garage. Gives me piece of mind considering what I have stored in the garage.

  • Do you mind expanding on how you did motion detectors with piercing sounds. I would like to do that

Hard Candy Source?

I've recently developed a liking for hard candy. Do you know of a store that offers a good variety? I mostly shop at Jewel and Whole Foods, and they seem to concentrate on chocolates and chewy candies, with just a sampling of hard candies. Now I'm interested in branching out a bit.

    Wow! I certainly did not expect a thread as long and involved as this when I originally posted my question! Thank you all for your responses. Shortly after the initial responses came in I visited Windy City Sweets on Broadway and bought a nice selection of candies for $6.99/lb. I think that's a reasonable price. And I discovered a couple new favorites, which was my intention. And I was happy to support a local store, which I will continue to do as I try some of the other suggestions when my supply runs out.

    I actually do prefer chocolates and chewies, but my new interest in hard candies is to help me practice self-discipline. They are less fattening then cookies, pastries, and chocolates, but satisfy the need for something sweet at the end of the meal, and not as conducive to binging.

Addison porch robbery

I called police Friday, about 2:00 p.m.
after witnessing a male, black, with short dread locks, about 20-25 years take a package off a neighbor's porch then walk east on Addison street. He hung out at the bus stop at Addison and Wolcott, let the bus pass by, then crossed the street to take the package. As far as I know he wasn't caught.

  • This has happened to us 3-4x in the year that we've lived in Roscoe Village and a couple of times, it's occurred within minutes of the UPS truck leaving. The truck must be followed.

  • ChiJen, that is exactly what is happening. These thieves track delivery trucks, knowing that they will leave packages in unsecured locations if no one answers the door. I avoid UPS deliveries if at all possible because of this. I've never had UPS do this.

    If you are having an item delivered by UPS delivery and suspect you will not be home to receive it, leave alternative instructions when you place your order for an item: "If no response at delivery address, please ring any apartment in bldg (or specify another apartment #)" or "If no response at delivery address, please deliver next door (give exact address)." I believe if you give an address close to yours, they will deliver as requested. At the very least, leave an instruction NOT to leave the delivery in an unsecured location.

Property Tax Resource

Does anyone know of a good property tax resource such as a website to walk me through it or a lawyer.

I have successfully appealed by myself in the past. But I don't know if I got back the most I could have, I don't know if I should appeal again; if I should appeal again, I don't know if a lawyer is worth it or if I should just "make stuff up" like I did last time. All I know is my mailbox gets flooded with lawyers fishing for my business and I would prefer to pay less in taxes rather than more.

Thank you!

    I've used Gary Howell Smith, 312-236-7447 (Wells at Wacker). As a lawyer, now retired (I didn't handle this sort of work for paying clients), I'm somewhat agnostic as to whether having a lawyer prosecute your challenge is worthwhile: I've gone to these politician-sponsored seminars and filed my own there with some favorable results. I think at the assessor's office it makes sense to have a lawyer (who gets paid only if the challenge is successful). After that, at various boards of review, I'm not so certain. The problem is that the tax-assessment system is a big lottery and I believe that the assessors behind the counter throw little bones to the plebs while they give large cuts to the major campaign contributors.

The water heater in our 8 unit condo building needs to be replaced. Any recommendations on installers? Tankless?

Thank you in advance!

The offer was out of line for the area, I realize that. What I didn't like was the bait and switch tactics. Before I get upbraided for not taking public transportation, my other family members came in from Milwaukee and had to return home last night. Typically I will take public transportation to concerts at Wrigley.

I have recently had to put lay my best friend to rest. He gave me the best 15 years of my life. For the last 6 years, he suffered from glaucoma, had one eye removed, but was still the happiest guy around. Making people smile every time he passed by. Before the end, I had refilled all his meds which were very expensive. I would love to pass along the unused and unopened medication to someone who is going through the same thing and may need some help. I know that I could donate to the shelter or even my vets office, but as one of the meds needs to be kept cold when unopened. I didn't want it to go to waste by not being stored properly.

Please do let me know if this can be of use to anyone. Would gladly meet up and pass it along!
