Snow Ban Parking Coming Soon

14 days and counting to the beginning of the Overnight Parking Ban for the Snow Routes around the City.

Look for the Snow Flake signs and check to see if they only say "no parking with 2 or more inches of snow" OR if they also include the language of 3am to 7am as well.

Starts 3am December 1st through 7am April 1st regardless of snow fall for the 107 miles of city streets that have the Snow Route signs that include the 3am to 7am ban signs.

  • Should also mention for those that are new to Chicago and didn't experience this last winter:

    The city Will Tow and Impound for this parking ban

Weekly cleaning service?

Hello! We just moved into a new condo and are looking for a good cleaning service to have in weekly. I had Maye's Cleaning in to do our move-in, but they don't offer weekly, tailored services. I would like to have the same person/crew in, as there would be tasks that would be alternating every other week. Any suggestions would be appreciated. We've used bigger services like The Maids in the past but have been most happy with smaller, localized businesses.

  • Grace Housekeeper

    I have many years of experience and many long time clients who would gladly provide referrals. I can provide you with a free estimate at your preferred date and time. Please feel free to call me at 773-858-0926. Look forward to hearing from you!

My name is Hilary Walker and I am a Chicago resident and a Graduate student. I am currently working on my thesis of connecting Chicago communities to environmental opportunities. Old Town is one of the neighborhoods I am focusing on.

I am currently using an online survey to collect data on Old Town residents' perspective on volunteering and their desire for more opportunities. The more people who take the survey, a better representation of the neighborhood I have and ultimately this allows me to better develop and tailor and community programs.

I am hoping you can help me reach more Old Town residents by taking my survey.
It is a quick 9 question survey that should only take about 5 minutes to complete.
