Mayfair Residents Oppose Proposed Mosque: 'This Is Purely a Zoning Issue'

The mosque and community center would be located at 4854 N. Elston Ave. on a parcel bordered by alleys and bungalows, with the only point of entrance and exit off Elston. The buildings currently are vacant and were purchased out of receivership.

  • Flew That Chicago born & raised. You can come home again!

    @39th warder What you fail to take into account is that unlike the other churches in the area where services usually are held only once a week, the mosque(s) hold services 5 or 6 times per week. Add to this the traffic generated by the proposed community center and you've got way too much traffic.

  • Elston used to be an official alternate to the Kennedy not sure if it still is,

    There used to be a bus on Elston many years ago before they put in the bike lanes. There were also parking restrictions during rush hour to help the flow of traffic.

    There already...

    Elston used to be an official alternate to the Kennedy not sure if it still is,

    There used to be a bus on Elston many years ago before they put in the bike lanes. There were also parking restrictions during rush hour to help the flow of traffic.

    There already is a link to the Blue Line from the Brown Line it is called the Lawrence bus.

    A religious facility will impeded growth because you cannot have liquor establishments within 500 feet of them. Because of the configuration of the proposed Mosque property it will wipe out the ability of businesses on Elston and Lawrence to have liquor licenses.

    Also the presenters acknowledge that traffic will be an issue. They are proposing crossing guards and guards in the alley to keep people from cutting through the alleys.

Now who will face Rahm?

Karen bowing out to heal from her brain surgery means Rahm just won another election. Can we start a betting pool? What will total voter turnout % be and how much will Rahm win by? We need to liven up this board!

  • @Rob...then why mention it? About 98% of all political workers in Chicago align with one or another sub tribe of the Democratic Party. So when you want to throw a barb you have to be much more precise or the affiliation is meaningless. BTW, in a parallel speech affectation foregoing the adjectival form, you could say there are almost no Republic workers. Which wouldn't be helpful without describing a sub tribal affiliation like RINO, Regular, or Tea Party

  • joanie Resident of Jefferson Park

    Rob the elderly who want assistance going to the polls are identified during campaign canvasses assessing support strength. I've brought elderly to the polls in the past too. I've had a few surprises too, like a couple little old ladies who pulled Republican ballots after being given a ride claiming to support a particular Democratic candidate. It's all in a days work. Many of these senior citizens wouldn't be able to vote without being given a ride to the polls.
