SW-side Continues to Bury Head in Sand as Gov Quinn Gives $50,000,000 for Trails

As a former resident of Archer Heights and a former board member of the Archer Heights Civic Association, .... I told you so!

http://www.dot.il.gov/press/1%2030%2013%20ITEP%20-%20RELEASE.pdf

When will the leaders of the Sw-side wake up? When will the people of the SW-side (Archer Heights, Garfield Ridge, Clearing) wake up?

As a former resident of Archer Heights and a former board member of the Archer Heights Civic Association, .... I told you so!

http://www.dot.il.gov/press/1%2030%2013%20ITEP%20-%20RELEASE.pdf

When will the leaders of the Sw-side wake up? When will the people of the SW-side (Archer Heights, Garfield Ridge, Clearing) wake up? There was a reason why I championed for a bicycle and nature path for many years. There was a reason why I repeatedly sought to meet with Ald.Burke, Ald. Zalewski, Cong. Lipinski. There was a reason why I repeatedly tried to get the 'leaders' of the AHCA to support a bicycle path. If only for the reason to give energetic youth someplace to blow off steam rather than by breaking into garages and other 'crime'. But then the local papers wouldn't have much to write about.

Everyone knows (or they find out the hard way after years of trying) that to get anything done in Archer Heights one needs to have the 'leaders' figuratively present the idea on a platter of promissory votes to who ever is the alderman at the time (pick one from the above). The more pomposity the better. Yes?

One prostitute, two prostitute, three prostitute, four. Apparently there isn't enough time between counting prostitutes on 47th & Cicero or trying to get a 'senior discount' from the local politicians to champion any other cause.

The SW-side, Archer Heights specifically is the land where politicians go to retire before they retire. It's a community where one with just a HS education is comfortable. Check out the last census. Wasn't Gov Quinn a guest at the AHCA meeting earlier this year?

A bicycle path people. It's easy. Have the conversation, interest and preliminary design on the shelf ready to go for moments like this!

    Earth Day 2014, The Chicago SKIWAY

    - a Bicycle and Nature Trail Serving the Fine People of Chicago's SW-Side
    - a Expressive and Energetic Outlet for the Youth of Chicago's SW-side
    - an Off-Road Bicycle Path Connecting the Historic Illinois & Michigan Canal (I&M) to Beautiful Chicago (like it used to be)
    - an Educational Opportunity and Preservational Model
    - a Spiritual Destination for Us Tree Huggers & Bird Watchers

    Phase I Along Canal Bank Rd (the access road on the S side of the Sanitary & Ship Canal) from Harlem to Kildare, with a crossover (similar to Archer rd & Rt 83) to the Chicago Portage (the park/monument on the NW corner of Harlem & I55) along Harlem with the official trailhead at Kildare Ave in Archer Heights. This is the most important segment.

    Phase II From Harlem to 1st Ave. This will connect Phase I to the I&M Canal that exists behind Summit and is controlled by the DNR for use by the public as long as the public demands. Eventually it would be pushed to the existing Willow Springs trail at Lagrange Rd pending some existing leases by Kinder Morgan, Shell & others. Several N & W-bound trails already exist at the Chgo Portage.

    Phase III From just East of Pulaski, a bridge over to the North side of the S&S canal then all the way to Ping-Tom Park, at least the turn-around at Damen where there already is a path along the Sun Times Bldg.

    I see the major players to be the Sanitary District, Stickney, Summit, Chgo (specifically the 14th & 23rd Wards), Cong Lipinski, Forest View, Cicero & ATSF.

Church 50th & Kedvale

What do you guys know about the church on the corner of 50th and Kedvale? I'll be the first person to tell you to respect others, especially what they believe in, however in this case I have to say I really think they have no respect for the neighbors. Having service at 1:00 am, really??? In the middle of service you have cars burning rubber for 30 mins straight and taking kids joy riding, while a bunch yell out go faster go faster. I had to call the police on Wednesday/Thursday night because it was like 1:30 AM and I couldn't sleep. It's not a one time incident, it's an on going problem that I've discussed with the neighbors but how do you tell a church, hey it's cool you like to have service really late and all but keep it down when you guys are coming out because this is a working class neighborhood and I wouldn't like to tell my boss church goers didn't let me sleep last night.

    R Lau,

    Understand from the AHCA that their newsletter with an invite to join our civic association was passed out to the 5000 blocks of Kedvale, Karlov, Keeler and Tripp sometime yesterday afternoon. It’s the regular newsletter with an orange invite glued to the front and should be attached to a doorknob, screen door or front gate. So look for it and talk to your neighbors about joining.

    Also, the next CAPS meeting for Police Beat 815 (covers most of AH) is May 7th at St. Bruno Church hall – 4839 S. Harding – starting at 7:00 PM. If you happen to have that day off from work, it would be good to attend as you will meet the police that patrol the area for the earlier part of the evening. Also understand the Beat 815 CAPS Facilitator was on your block checking out the site. So both CAPS and AHCA are looking into this problem.

  • RL - Please go to CAPS meeting. You will be surprised what you can accomplish. And by all means, use 911 when the clowns start racing down your block. You certainly don't have to put up with that.

Article from the April Archer Heights Civic Association Newsletter.

The Greater Chicago Food Depository informed The Archer Heights Civic Asociation that a Model Pantry has been established for residents in Archer Heights who may be in need.

At the on-site food pantry residents of our neighborhood, both individuals and families in need of food assistance will be able to choose from a variety of fresh produce and shelf-stable items. The area covered by this food pantry is slightly different from our community’s boundary: North – Stevenson Expressway, South – 54th Street, East – Central Park Ave. (3600 West), and West – Knox (4600 West) but the actual Archer Heights boundary is Cicero Avenue – 4800 West.

The location of the pantry is in the Greater Chicago Food Depository – 4100 W. Ann Lurie Place (use the Keeler Avenue entrance) and will be open every Saturday starting March 8th from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Archer Heights residents will be allowed one visit per month and must bring proof of residency. For more information please call 773-247-FOOD.

  • This is very good information. Everybody in Archer Heights needs to pass this info around as some people are afraid or embarrassed to admit they need help. By spreading the word, people can anonymously go to the food pantry.

    Thank you AHG for posting this.

Blocked tub drain

Can't thank everyone enough for the great advice.......so, here's what I did. I did the hangar thing (gag) and got some gunk (gag again) then I loaded the drain with about a quart of vinegar.......then taking another suggestion I boiled more water then is in my pool (ok, not really, but lots) and after letting the vinegar sit for two hours I dumped the boiling water down and lo and behold, I have a very well running drain!!!!! Thanks again everyone.....as you all can tell I never had this problem before. Now that I know how to handle it, I won't have this problem again!!!!

Status Hearing for 5173 South Archer

On Tuesday April 29, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. in Room 1107 in the Daley Center there will be a hearing in regards to the bar located on the corner of Archer and Kostner which has been shut down since Sept 2013.

Need neighboring support to keep this bar shut down. This bar has been a neighborhood problem since it opened and even though they had security 3 people were shot outside of the bar in Sept 2013.

  • Kath Kath

    What was the name of the bar? Sounds like its a nuisance

  • The name of the bar is El Palenque and it was shut down in Sept 2013 for 70 building code violations. Looking for people to attend the court hearing on Tues April 29, 2014 and Yes would love to get a petition started to keep this bar closed.
