Stacking Snow Removal on Streets

For the second season in a row, we have a complex across the street (100 block of S. Aberdeen) that has a plowing service clear the snow from their parking lot and alley each snowfall. Nothing unusual about that except for the fact that in order to keep their parking lot and alley clear, they plow all the snow directly across the street.

For the second season in a row, we have a complex across the street (100 block of S. Aberdeen) that has a plowing service clear the snow from their parking lot and alley each snowfall. Nothing unusual about that except for the fact that in order to keep their parking lot and alley clear, they plow all the snow directly across the street. Last year, the mound took up six parking spaces, and was so high that it probably didn't melt until late April. This year, they are back at it, and since the snow storms after Christmas, the stacked snow had been taking up about 4 parking spaces.
Additionally, although it's less high than last year, the mound completely blocks drivers' views when pulling out of our alley.

My first intuition had been to call the alderman's office, but given their lack of response on other issues I've brought up, I don't feel they'll react or follow up. Is calling 311 the way to go? There's a bit of an investigation to do here as there are numerous townhome and duplex units off of that alley, and I'm not sure which complex is the culprit. Maybe they all share the same plowing service. It's not as easy as reaching out to one HOA and asking them to have their snow removed or stacked on their property.

I've noticed this happening more and more around the West Loop since I'm sensitive to it.

Custom cushion for window seat - vendor recommendations?

Hi, neighbors,

I am looking for a business that makes custom window seat cushions. Would also possibly have them make new covers for my outdoor cushions in the spring. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks!
