Shooting

1470 block of West Ohio Street at 730pm yesterday there was a silver/ gray Toyota 4Runner who fired about 5-6 rounds. I'm not sure who they were shooting at. Cops were called but I don't know what the outcome was. It's not the first time that a shooting took place in the area, but it's scary that it seems to be happening earlier in the evenings. So please be careful out there.

  • Joe

    I thought I heard shots last night. I am a couple blocks west of there. Thanks for the update.

  • Any update on this? I heard it last night too.
    There did not seem to be many cops around looking for the culprit.

kids running the streets

Was wondering if anyone had advice. Live by Oakley and Maypole. Last night there were about twenty to thirty kids in the middle of the street blocking traffic and screaming. When the cops showed up they all ran. With the exception of about 15 stragglers who wanted to give lip to the cops. I know that about 5 of the kids live in section 8 housing within two blocks of my apartment. Is there a way I can report their...

I know that about 5 of the kids live in section 8 housing within two blocks of my apartment. Is there a way I can report their activity anonymously to the CHA? I also have an issue with the amount of trash I see on a daily basis, broken glass, discarded food and plastic bags . I pick up when I see it but maybe more trash cans at the end of the block would help curb the problem.

Renting Table & Chairs?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a place to rent a banquet table and chairs? I only need 1 table (that can hold 10 people) and 10 chairs for the weekend.

  • Thanks, Doolins will be perfect and it's a good price.

  • Wow. I did not know that Doolin's rented tables and chairs. Wonder if they also rent coat racks. We always drive to some place south west. Doolin's is much closer and we go there for all of our other supplies. Thank you for the tip. I will check it out.

West town SSA - unfairly raising resident property taxes

It seems the overwhelming majority of residents would be AGAINST this very significant tax given the benefits almost exclusively seen by business and not west town residents.

There were some posts in October about the West Town SSA - was anyone at the hearing on Oct. 2 about the reconstitution of the SSA? What is the status?

It's a small percentage of what a property owner's tax would normally be. And everyone benefits. SSA's are the reason you have clean streets, nice trash cans, street banners, events, and other such improvements. I would say that benefits all the residents. And SSA's truly give the local neighborhood control of how this money is spent, and not politicians or City Hall.

  • I don't see anything online about a Nov 24 meeting. Is there a meeting on Monday? Also, I never heard what happened at the October 2 meeting. Does anyone know?

Have a Toddler? Let's Hang Out and Have a Playdate!

We live on Damen and Ohio and we have an 18-month-old daughter. We're looking for parents with toddlers close to her age in this area.

I'm a stay-at-home mom and I would really like our daughter to socialize with other children as much as possible. It's also starting to get cold, so we'd like to make this network happen before the snow sticks to the ground!

If you're in the same boat, please feel free to post a comment or send me a personal message! I'm always happy to meet new people!

We've attached our lovely daughter in her Halloween outfit! Enjoy!

Rash of stolen packages

Hi neighbors - I know this has been a recurring problem in our hood but it's reakky gotten out of control. Finally had to move all my deliveries to my downtown office which is a huge inconvenience. Literally the latest package lasted an hour after delivery and by the time I get home, gate wide open, no package.

At Iowa/Honore. Keep your eyes open as my guess it people are following delivery trucks around - wether fedex, ups or usps.

  • I am sorry that you are having this problem. Many years ago we had our son's graduation computer delivered to our home via UPS. Then while at a short graduation event, our back door was broken in and the new computer was stolen. That was the last time we had any package delivered to our home. CrimeStopper's advice is spot on. Everything is delivered to my office now.

    Hope that this helps.

  • the only thing I have delivered to my home is cat litter

Speed Camera Date Setting

Have any anyone ever received a speed camera warning ticket but the date of the violation was incorrect? I recently received a warning ticket and after reviewing the video which was indeed a picture of my vehicle but the date noted on the video could not be correct because I was with my vehicle on that date at the Mall of America in Minneapolis MN.

    Actually, you'll win because the responsibility falls to the city to prove it was you in your vehicle at that exact time and location. I've won every case I've argued on that legal requirement.

    Since it was only a warning, I don't have to fight it. I called the phone number at the bottom of the letter that I received to notify them of the error and to request that they send someone to check the setting on the camera. There only response was to contest the citation and that I could report the malfunction by calling 311. I called 311 and they were shocked that the City of Chicago Finance Department referred me to them and I was told to called them back. It appears that there is no procedure in place to receive reports of a malfunction of a speed camera. My next step is to send the information to the I-Team for further investigation as to why this type of error could occur. I can clearly prove that my vehicle was not in the city on the date and time recorded on the warning citation and video. I would hate to see if this is occurring in other cases.
