What's happening on Cicero Avenue just south of Forest Glen?

My husband and I were driving north on Cicero when we saw four CPD cars and a forest preserve police car on Cicero Avenue just south of Forest Glen at the river. Now I am hearing multiple helicopters in the area. Has anyone heard what's going on?

  • sue

    There was a small segment on the 4:30 news of a manhunt for the guy who was exposing himself and slapping woman's butts a few days ago.

  • Multiple incidents on the Sauganash Trail have generated a huge police response. Our Police have been saturating the area for days. WGN has been covering the story daily.

Halloween

Hi neighbors,
We just moved to sauganash in July and I'm wondering if trick or treating is popular here? We lived in a condo before so I have no idea how much candy to buy, if any. We live close to a school but we're on a busy road. So...not sure? Thanks!

  • I agree with Jim we always buy something we would like to eat in case we have leftovers.

  • Sorry. Have NOT had any in years.

We'll be raking, watering, planting, cleaning, mowing (and other things that end in "ing") our shared underpass and public space. Your help is needed to get this done. For more information on this fun way to improve your neighborhood, contact Kristin Ciarrachi (longtime Edgebrook resident) at kciarrachi@parkcommunitychurch.org.

For this effort, the Neighborhood Connection Project (NCP) is pleased to partner with yet another community institution, Park Community Church (located on Touhy Avenue across from Target).

For more information about the Neighborhood Connection Project, check us out on Facebook or contact Jac Charlier at jac.charlier@gmail.com or Gina Metelica at gina.metelica@gmail.com

As part of its vision to renew Chicago, Park Community seeks to build the goodness and greatness of the city we all love. As we continue to partner with community leaders, organizations and neighbors we seek to make a positive lasting difference throughout Chicago.

About NCP: Started in Spring of 2010, the Neighborhood Connection Project (NCP) is a citizen-led initiative to build community by repairing and beautifying the Metra railroad underpass located at Kinzua, Hiawatha and Lehigh. We were joined by our ongoing partners, Green Star Movement (GSM) and After School Matters (ASM). Phase I underpass beautification efforts were ready to begin and indeed started finally in Spring 2013. GSM worked with ASM's teen interns and our local artists and community volunteers to produce the mural on the East side of the underpass, which was completed in Summer 2013. We completed Phase II when the West wall work was completed in August 2014. During summer 2015 we will finish the project.

Everyblock vs Nextdoor in Sauganash

I have my favorite but would like to hear what peeps up in Sauganash think.

If you could only use one, which would you choose? ...and why? Which do you find to be more informative, to have better features, community outreach, support etc? ...or is there another social neighborhood network you prefer to use? ie Facebook, Yahoo Groups, Foursquare

To help compare, i put together a chart:
http://w11.zetaboards.com/InsideNextdoor/topic/10057749/2/#new

For those who are not familiar with ND, but curious, here's an invite link:
https://nextdoor.com/invite/uncptzzbfxscgxxppmuw

  • Tim! 5900 block of Kolmar Avenue

    Nextdoor is by far better.

  • Todd Agosto Analyst/Investigator at Veritatem Cognoscere

    If you don't mind me asking... how is it better?

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

    Everyblock is my personal choice by far but I read both daily. Imo, EB provides more information about what's going on in the neighborhood.

    Everyblock is my personal choice by far but I read both daily. Imo, EB provides more information about what's going on in the neighborhood.

    The people who post regularly to EB seem to be more outwardly focused than ND, i.e. how happenings in the 'hood affect the area(s) at large rather than just them. ND seems to be primarily concerned with garage sales, goings on by the stores in Edgebrook, and furniture, etc. for sale although lately a few issues came up that sparked debate. I'm of the opinion that knowledge can be power and knowing what's happening regularly in other areas helps us recognize the signs of impending trouble in our own.

    I moved to Sauganash two years ago, albeit the less desirable section. It's usually very quiet here, save for the 3 a.m. motorcycle races on Cicero, so maybe ND is less interesting here because not much happens, although an entire block got tagged the other night.

    Posts on EB tend to be more direct, aka snarky, but I'm not offended by it and I've never muted anyone nor felt the need to do so. No smelling salts in my medicine cabinet!!

    Different strokes.
