Argyle and Long Update

During the past week, my office has received several calls and emails regarding a potential project at the empty lot on the northeast corner of Argyle and Long, across the street from the Jefferson Park Metra station.

I want to update you on the status of the site. Right now, there is no pending proposal.

During the past week, my office has received several calls and emails regarding a potential project at the empty lot on the northeast corner of Argyle and Long, across the street from the Jefferson Park Metra station.

I want to update you on the status of the site. Right now, there is no pending proposal.

Earlier this year, the owner of the land had proposed a 4 and one-half story, 48-unit development on the site. In late Spring, residents came to my office and expressed concerns about the project. I took those concerns back to the property owner, and, at this point, we are waiting on an updated proposal.

I want to assure you that, as with every other zoning change, any proposed zoning change must be presented to residents during a community meeting. I require that anyone seeking a zoning change send a notice to everyone owning property within 500 feet, and we plan those meetings for evening hours at locations in the community.

Once we have a pending proposal for this site, we will schedule that meeting.

    Km74, Nadig Newspaper is in Jefferson Park where this debate will take place and when they publish articles on this site, they use JP. You’re also a new member and there are only a handful of folks participating. If you want to get to know the candidates running in the 45th Ward, you need to meet them in person because they won’t join this virtual reality Alderman Arena created for himself. I think the two most popular neighborhoods are Portage and Jefferson Parks. Subscribe to those two and you’re good to go on the NW side :)

    Pamela, I’m not sure why you mentioned me? I need to reach a wider audience than the same five people. We’re old school where I live. We meet in person or by phone.

Deep Tunnel Storm Water Management Project Delayed, Eastbound Lawrence Projected Open Christmas Eve

Work crews have closed eastbound Lawrence from the Kennedy Expressway east to Cicero to work on a $20 million sewer project which should help alleviate some of our local basement flooding issues. Local traffic will be able to get through to the Kennedy Expressway, but the eastbound lanes will be closed to all traffic at Lavergne. Additionally, Lawler southbound from Lawrence is closed to prevent cut-through traffic. The westbound lane will remain open.

Crews had initially hoped to end the eastbound Lawrence closure at the end of November, but various issues have delayed that to December 24.

Allow extra time, as traffic will be heavy in the area impacted. Please respect our neighborhoods by following the designated detour, which is south on Milwaukee, east on Montrose, and north on Cicero.

The closure will allow for the construction of a 230-foot drop shaft that will tie local sewers directly into the Deep Tunnel storm water management system. This work should improve sewer drainage for thousands of homes in Jefferson Park.

Also, crews have started work on the second drop shaft for the project at Avondale and Lavergne. As a result, that intersection will be closed for the next several months. Crews there will dig down about 60 feet to drop in and pull out tunneling equipment. No explosives will be used at the second shaft.

Work will also start Monday, Dec. 15, on a third drop shaft at Lavergne and Montrose. Lavergne will be closed from north of Montrose to the alley through the end of the project next year. No explosives will be used at this site either.

Please allow extra time and follow the posted detour.

  • Laugh sorry yes sewer!

  • Joanne asks "When will we get new swears then." The answer is: "Next time it floods."

    BTW...after a series of sewer back ups I bought a GE dehumidifier with $185 of FEMA money. By a fluke two months ago I learned in Consumer Reports some models of GE and others had been recalled as fire hazards. Investigated, complied with process, and just today received a $175 check to replace my little tinderbox.

Hello neighbors,

Last night around 7:30, a crew came out (without any notice, so I believe it was an emergency crew) on the 4800 block of W Winnemac and began tearing up the street and doing work on pipes underground. Our water was shut off for several ours. They have since completed their work and patched up the street but now whenever we turn on our water or flush the toilet, our pipes make violent noises like they are jerking around.

I would like to file a complaint with the city but on the 311 site, none of the choices really fit the issue. I was just wondering if anyone knows if this is the proper place to log a complaint for something like this. If so, I'll just pick something that comes the closest.

Thanks for your help!

    @mkee; Why are you dragging me into this?

  • to add, you should always run your faucets closest to the ground floor first like the one in the yard or basement that way any sediment goes out there first and reduces the chances of clogging valves or screens in kitchen and bathroom faucets.

Plumbers

Does anyone have any suggestions on a good plumber with decent prices? Please let me know and if you have used them.

  • About that $735... Of course a price like that might include a more than average quality heater and some fancy new venting and plumbing work and maybe a realigned gas line. But if it was just a straight swap of like sized average quality heaters, a little high. IMO

    What's a forty gallon gas one cost now and what's a company's time worth now in 2014?

Everyblock has been so much better in about the last week

Everyblock has been so much better in about the last week without all those trolls putting up comments that are nasty, insulting or off topic. There is only one user now that Im suspicious of. I am wondering if Everyblock decided to check out IP addresses and figured out that so many of the accounts were from the same place (Kenji and possibly John A). It is such a pleasure to communicate without that garbage. In the future, if these types of posts come back, we should ALL immediately mute these users and report them to everyblock. Lets not ever tolerate this again in the future. My best to all of you. :)

Heavy police presence at Jeff Park station

Hi everyone,

I've noticed some heavy police presence at the Jeff Park station. This morning for example, there were K-9 units everywhere as well as several officers.

Anyone know why such an uptick in police presence?

  • Hush Little Baby

    Don't project, I'm a life glass half full kinda guy. When I see a gaggle of quasi military security company employees decked out in all black wearing the company logo with 10 dogs I think about that company's contract with CTA and how much the company makes a year and what backroom deal was struck to get those employees on the rails. To me it should be city employees making a proper wage not a private company.

    Hush Little babay (probably Kenji) joined everyblock on Dec 9 and has already been muted 6 times. The ONLY thing to do when a critical or obnoxious person comes to our discussion is to COMPLETELY IGNORE them.

    I had received a gift of the remote start from ABC on Harlem, next to Shooter's buffet. That guy is terrible! Would not permit me to make appointment for the install for months, since he " Was not getting any money for it.". He could not comprehend that he was paid for it already. After MUCH complaining and phoning Hardwood Heights Police, he refunded the money to the original credit card of the person providing me the gift.
    However, my husband took my car to a place near his work, which ended up being ABC Automotive in Elk Grove Village. Spectacular service!!! Lifetime warranty, too! That was 6 years ago, and I have been back twice to repair the remote, once when mice ate the wires and a tow person somehow disengaged the remote start. Both times NO CHARGE! WHA-HOO! Absolute gentlemen, immaculate shop and the best of all, I waited for my car, with coffee provided, inside a warm office area! My husband had a custom rack made/installed by them for much, much less than other quotes and that, too, a lifetime warranty! Jim, is the absolute best! It may be a bit out of the way, but, the fast, convenient, courteous service is well worth it.

    I know I'm right and not wanting to prove anything to the JaKenji troll, but if others are interested in how Section 8 works... My in-laws own a lot of single family & apartment buildings and they talk about how Section 8 is not worth the hassle. Every so often someone comes with a voucher and they agree to submit the unit for the inspection. It is not automatic and the owner is not forced to submit the application paperwork.

    The common violations can be comical: a ceramic light socket that does not have a glass globe: a small closet that has a curtain instead of a door; a slow dripping faucet in a utility room; a crack in the public sidewalk. If the landlord choses to not correct the deficiencies, the unit does not pass. Compliance with these deficiencies is not mandatory to rent to the private market. Despite what an uninformed troll might assert, no one can force a landlord into compliance and make them accept a Section 8 voucher.

Plumber/Handyman Recommendation

Good morning Everyone!

I posted before but can no longer find the thread, so here goes again.

I have a few small plumbing tasks that need to be done, and always have a few little things that need to be fixed. So I guess I'm looking for a handyman, but definitely someone who is also qualified/capable to do some minor plumbing items.

Would prefer a reputable/reliable individual to a firm, but am open to suggestion.

Thanks much!

The lines were long in most stores and the parking lot was filling up, but as I got to the center of the mall and saw Santa, I noticed there was no line or any kid talking to him. Santa was just sitting there chatting with the Help (see pic). As I was taking the picture of this unimaginable situation a mother and her small son walked up to entrance. She was holding his hand and the kid was kinda pulling her anxious to see Santa, but as they got to the entrance a lady popped out with a clipboard and cut them off. I saw them talking for a minute and then the mother and kid just turned around and walked away. As it turns out, you got to pay to talk to Santa, nowadays.
