North Avenue needs attention NOW

Here's a link to our letter to the Oak Park Wednesday Journal re: spending on Lake St. vs. North Ave. You can add your own comments online.

    Thanks for your response. While I am not pleased with the increased traffic down our street, I am most concerned about the alley traffic. I think it is a combined problem of cars turning off North and finding they can't go through and then driving block after block to find a street they can go south on in addition to people just attempting to avoid North Avenue traffic by speeding through the alleys. I know there are "No Thru Traffic" signs, but these do nothing. Is it possible to have speed bumps installed in the East-West alleys? What can we do about the obnoxious honking at T-intersections and streets? There are afternoon/evenings where it is obscene to sit in our backyard due to the incessant honking and revving of engines in the alley.

  • Ben, I suggest you attend the next resident beat officer meeting and bring this up, if you haven't already done so. The RBO has no authority over installing speed bumps, but s/he can bring the problem to the attention of Chief Tanksley and also can monitor alleys and issue tickets....

    Ben, I suggest you attend the next resident beat officer meeting and bring this up, if you haven't already done so. The RBO has no authority over installing speed bumps, but s/he can bring the problem to the attention of Chief Tanksley and also can monitor alleys and issue tickets. I vaguely remember a discussion about speed bumps. If I'm not mistaken, the Oak Park police are opposed because it will slow them down in pursuit of bad guys. But you could bring that up as well. If you live east of Ridgeland, the next NE Oak Park RBO meeting is this coming Tuesday, 10/21, at Hatch School, 7 PM.

What would you think of a medical marijuana dispensary on North Ave.?

Sounds like a medical marijuana dispensary may be coming to western end of North Ave. in Oak Park. http://tinyurl.com/o44rv8o . If you live in north Oak Park or Galewood, please let me know how you feel about this.

  • HoneyBadger resident

    Don't see the need for stand alone dispensaries. If the marijuana is to be used for medical reasons then let the drug stores dispense it - better yet, the hospitals.
