Radius of a No Loitering sign..

I need to put up a No Loitering sign on my fence. Does anyone have any experience they can share? Can they just cross the street and be cleared from the sign violation? I've asked these guy's to find another place to sit around and now since they have absolutely nothing better to do. .. they actually PURPOSELY make it a point be there when I get home from work to taunt me and my family...has anyone ever had success getting their loiter's arrested?

    Hard way? I heard motor oil on the fences and itching powder on the stoop. Get the powder from a local magic shop, keep calling police and go to your caps meeting!

    Easy way? Just talk to them, not at them. Be firm, but calm. They're just punking you because they feel they can. You all live in the neighborhood together. Tell the leader of the group, and look directly in his eye, that this is your house now and you've "got this." But the trick is to stay cool. Introduce yourself by name. Ask theirs. If you have any odd jobs, grass cutting, window washing, etc, tell them to come around if they are interested in picking up a few bucks. That's why they're hanging out, trying to make a few bucks. It's not right, but that's the skinny on it. Before you know it, they'll pass by and say "hey Mr. Don, I just got married or I just graduated or check out my new car or meet my mom."

    I've been in this exact same situation before only our corner property had a lovely fire hydrant and doubled as a beach!

    You can do it! Head up young person,
    Lynne

    I heard of a brilliant approach in my neighborhood. The property owner put up a lawn sprinkler in his front yard, but had it set on the street corner where the loitering happened. Whenever the groups gathered he turned the sprinkler on. That solved his problem real fast. But he also had a fence so that the loiterers couldn't get to the sprinkler.

Pittbull attack

Walking my dogs today was the third time this month I've had a pittbull charge and threaten the safety of my pups.

Keep dogs on leashes and report those who do not.
The fine is $400.

Prayer Vigils against violence at Crystal & Keeler

Hi all, about fifty neighbors and supporters gathered at Crystal & Keeler for a prayer vigil this past Wednesday, the one before that, and the one before that! Alderman Emma Mitts came out to show her support, and DNA Info covered the vigil: http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20140821/west-humboldt-park/humboldt-park-elders-new-neighbors-mourn-after-11-murders-2014.

We are looking for a choir to join us next week! Please contact me if you think you might be able to lend your support.

A new facebook page was created as a brand new forum to continue a long history of community organizing in the neighborhood: https://www.facebook.com/4100CrystalBlockClub
