    What impact, if any, will this proposed development have on the sewers in the area? Currently, it is an empty lot…open space that soaks up water. If you put two buildings on the property, the water has to go somewhere – likely down the sewers when it gets pushed off the property toward the street and alley by the gutters. Add 48 units using water on a daily basis to the mix. Will the additional water (rain water being pushed off the property + the daily water use of the 48 units) going into the sewer system create problems for the neighborhood? I know plenty of basements have flooded over the last year during heavy rain. If a basement currently floods from the sewer being full in a heavy rain, will a storm of less intensity cause the same flooding when additional water is sent into the system? How much water use is expected from a 48 unit development? I’m not an engineer or water/wastewater expert, so if anyone in the industry has something to add, it would be appreciated.

    Also, parking is a bigger issue than some people realize. From my experience, developers do not plan for the correct amount of parking. Most developers want to have the least amount of parking that they can legally get away with. From a $$$ perspective, I understand it – more apartment units equals more money for the developer and additional parking spaces probably means no additional revenue. Planning for one vehicle per unit seems too low. As an example, here are the numbers for about two-thirds of my block. There are nine units on about two-thirds of my block. The families in those nine units have 21 vehicles (and only three of the vehicles are parked in a garage on a regular basis). We are two blocks from the train and that is nowhere close to an average of one vehicle per household. Someone taking the train to work during the week does not mean they will not have a vehicle, or two, or three.

    Great points!

    Our area does have a flooding issue. Which is why I asked the question about sustainable design and LEED which incorporates the storm water run as well as the use of low-flow plumbing fixture, etc. that all impact the dated Chicago infrastructure.

    Arena's response didn't touch on this topic. I know hard architectural and MEP plans have not yet been developed. However, at this stage of the project, it should be known if the intent is to design and build a large complex with the intent to be environmentally friendly and not tax the aging Chicago infrastructure. Unfortunately there is nothing in the Chicago Building Code that mandates a sustainable design. As long as the project meets code, they will be allowed to build. Furthermore, sustainable design tends to come at an added cost which is why developers pass on the idea.

    If you currently flood and live near this development, I would install a flood control system, especially if you have a finished basement. We are doing so this month. We are no longer taking risk of sewer back ups.

    As for the parking issue, I agree that the base line formula used doesn't always work. However they are designing to a minimum. We too have major parking issues on the 5000 block of Winnemac. There are a decent amount of 2 flats (and some with converted basement apartments) and a majority of the people have multiple cars. Parking is very difficult if you do not utilize your garage. We do use our garage and it is a good thing because there is very little street parking. Factor is the "guest" factor and you are forced to park on the next block.

Putting a stop to doorstep litter? (RedPlum & Yellow Pages)

I am getting really tired of seeing these Tribune/RedPlum coupon newspaper things showing up at my house and every other house in the neighborhood, only to either build up on doorsteps or be taken directly to the recycle bin (at our house anyway; maybe others don't even recycle them). I believe that there are ways to opt out of receiving these things, but, by and large, it seems that most people have no desire to receive them. This is a huge waste of paper and an eyesore in all neighborhoods across Chicago as they sit out. I personally think that people should have to opt-in to receive these sorts of things not go through time consuming steps to *try* and opt-out of receiving them.

How is it that this sort of unsolicited material that arrives at our homes only to be thrown out is allowed? Why does the city not consider this to be littering or some other violation?

I hardly know anyone that uses a phonebook these days, yet they arrive on our doorsteps only to sit there for weeks/months rotting in the rain, until they are finally all picked up and disposed of. The Tribune/RedPlum papers may not sit out for as long as phone books usually do, but they arrive a couple times a week and I am getting really tired of picking them up.

Can't we get these things to stop? I know that there was a law suit filed over the RedPlum papers last summer; not sure how that ended up though, if it has even been resolved yet... http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/20318975-418/residents-sue-chicago-tribune-over-nuisance-coupons.html

Higher Property Taxes, Better Schools??

Reading the paper today our Mayor thinks our property taxes are to low compared to the suburbs. Now the decision falls to the City Council (Our Alderman). The only reason I'm still residing in the City of Chicago is because of the low taxes compared to suburbs. Emanuel aides claim that an owner of an $250,000.00 home would pay an additional $58 per year on top of a $4,000.00 property tax bill each of the next five years. For them to even consider this is a complete joke. If this was going for a bump in city services I might consider. What do you all think?

    arnie, once the Depression generation passed on I bet that human characteristic has not changed in either direction. Ever.

    What has killed retirement savings after the loss of the enforced savings of a traditional company pension has been other employment trends. (1) The viscious rising dominance of the benefitless twin practices of part time work and borderline criminal use of the 'independent contractor' employment designations. These two evils are crushing low and middle income retirement savings potentials by eliminating structural discipline and economies of scale. Consider that when these two practices spread into the lower half of the workforce, wages did not rise. But the cost to employers went down. (2) Failure of real wages to increase to make up for the loss of paid benefits. (3) Rising medical and educational costs will in advance of general cost-of-living inflation.

    The Social Security trust fund is officially named the "Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund." In 1940 (the year in which "modern" Social Security started), only 54% of males and 60% of females who survived to age 21 would live long enough to receive any benefits at all (other than the burial benefit). Today those numbers are around 75% and 85%.

    Another quip -- my grandmother lived during the income tax amendment campaign. She once told me that if people knew then what it would become, there would have been a revolution. The income tax was sold as applying only to the wealthy, and started at 1% for the very well to do. It was a very different time then. My grandparents (an elementary school teacher and salesman) did well in retirement, due to pensions, savings, stocks with dividend payments. Social Security for them was just icing, letting them travel internationally and extensively in retirement.

    They also happened to have lived during a unique period, where the United States survived 100% intact following an incredibly destructive war, with massive industrial capacity, and leveraged that into economic dominance and great prosperity. Times change though, and we've been living through that. One facet of people is that we tend to view what we experience as "normal" and don't really conceive of or plan for different times. Look at the income tax, and the implications that has for our form of government. How many people today can conceive of a time where the income tax didn't exist, and the (much much smaller) federal government survived on nothing but excise and other non-direct forms of taxation?

Dogs and Stairs?

We recently adopted an English bulldog from a rescue who refuses to come up our back stairs (6 steps). She will go down the stairs, but not up, even when bribed with treats. However, she has absolutely no problem going up our front steps--scampers right up. Back stairs are wooden with carpeted treads and closed wooden backs. Front steps are concrete and about twice as wide. She's apparently refused to go up others' stairs too, as reported by the lady who fostered her. She's around 3 years old. Have any of you experienced anything similar? What did you do about it? Thanks so much for any advice you may have.

  • Inactive, don't think so. Too narrow. Maggie almost tried it today. Thinking if she's on leash and I run just ahead, she might follow. That's what she does in front. But guess she will when she's ready. Thanks.

Last summer my condo president and I spent hours trying to figure out where to install something to lock our bikes to. In the end we could not arrive at any decision, we were split. Today Mr. Pres rang my bell with a new idea: could we perhaps buy a rack and install it in the parkway "just for summer parking" so we could quit arguing about where to put a rack inside the fence? It seems to me I already ran this by Andi in the Ward 45 office last summer and she said no, that belongs to the city, but maybe there are magic words I don't know about? Or magic beans? We got two new owners and they've got bikes, too! Is it possible to use the parkway for bikes, or a part of the street? His idea is just do it and let them say something, but I got the distinct feeling the city watches these things like a hawk! Those parking racks aren't cheap and we could waste one!

    ANYWAYS :) I know there is some sort of condo/apt building in that area, and yeah, it'd be nice to have a spot to lock bikes if you have nothing inside the bldg. Might even help those who would want to lock up and take the bus (I think there's a bus stop shelter there, my wife walked smack in to the side of it once while we were taking a walk).

This would include removal of leaves and other debris, pruning roses, trimming plants, removing dead flowers/plants and perhaps planting new ones. I'm open to hiring a professional landscaper, but would definitely consider a knowledgable individual who is looking to make some extra cash. Hourly/flat rate is negotiable and, once this is done, could be an on-going yard maintenance opportunity. I'm also flexible on hours, could be done at your convenience.

I would like the initial clean-up to be done within the next couple of weeks, if possible.

Thanks much!

Knife at Jefferson Park train

I saw a CTA worker pull a large serrated knife out of the garbage at the Jefferson Park bus terminal today around 6:00 pm. He put it in a black bag and continued digging through the garbage. I haven't seen any incidents reported. Anyone know about something that happened there today?

    Criminals always stalk at the Tansit Center. More than likely was running from the police and ditched the knife. I got robbed of my bike there last month.

Shoe Repair recommendations

Looking for some shoe repair recommendations. I need to resole one pair of boots and on another I need to reinforce the bottom of the sole. I usually go downtown, so I am looking for something local. I'm in Jefferson Park.

  • A Playboy or whatever magazine for perusal on the table is a lot different than pages taped to the wall, in my opinion. Yes, JeffyParkerOldTimer, I find it degrading to women and placed there by those who need to get their superiority kick.

  • so are these like nude pictures or like swimsuit calendars?
