Extension of the Brown Line Project

Hi Albany Park, I saw this posted months ago and dismissed it as a suggested ideal. Now it seems the Active Transportation Alliance is really trying to push this through. http://www.activetrans.org/blog/kwhitehead/join-our-campaign-expand-public-transit-cook-county Please note the propsal for Albany Park would be to have the Brown Line run West on Lawrence to connect with the Jefferson Blue Line stop. Is there a need for this if the 81 bus can get you there between 20 and 30 minutes? Is there any concern about the noise? Would there be any concern about loss of businesses along Lawrence? Does anyone question how this would affect traffic on Lawrence Ave.? Maybe there ought to be some community input on this.

Construction at Montrose/Sacramento

Does anyone know why they halted the construction of the strip mall at this corner? Once the weather got warmer they were making good headway, but then abruptly stopped about a month ago with no activity since. There has been quite a bit of graffiti on it as well. I wasn't dying to have another strip mall there, but the empty lot was an eye sore and now the half built lot is even worse.

  • Sha

    Thanks for checking Ashp. Much appreciated. I hope so - it's been over a month and as we've been commenting, there is a lot of graffiti/tagging and the weeds are astronomical.

As far as we know it is still going to be a strip mall, they ran into a few issues and it had to be put on hold so as soon as we hear anything we will announce it.

How to handle garbage issue?

We have an ongoing garbage problem with a building across the alley. The building is owned by the government; I believe it is part of the CHA scattered sites program, but I am not positive. In any case, the building lacks its own recycling bins and also seems not to have enough regular bins. The tenants are constantly filling our recycling bin and putting unbagged garbage in our bins, which then ends up strewn everywhere. It looks atrocious and we really need our garbage space, as my daughter's medical supplies create lots of waste. We are spending hours each week cleaning our alley and the next day it is back to being covered by trash.

Does anyone know how to handle a garbage issue when the CHA is involved?

  • AlbanyParkMom Community gardener, 11-year resident

    Please do use an app like SeeClickFix for something like this, because you can easily attach photos with your ticket. You should also call your alderman and report it. If you can ID who the building management company is (sometimes there's a plaque on the building, mailboxes) you should also reach out to them directly.

  • Susan 8 year resident

    I've used SeeClickFix/311 when they dump larger stuff multiple times, mostly to protect myself from tickets. But we are talking about strewn garbage three or more times a week. I know from records searches that the building is listed as government owned, so no management company. I have one time seen a CHA truck there, so I think it is a small CHA building. I will definitely notify Alderman. Do you think calling Streets and San directly and asking to give them appropriate bins would be helpful or not?

4200 Block of North Drake

Perhaps there's a reasonable explanation but lately there have been quite a few very expensive cars park on this block. I'm talking a Hummer, a Porsche, a Bentley and a Lamborghini. The last three are parked there right now (well, the Bentley is a half-block down). Sunday morning there were two guys outside 4224 or so blasting rap music (at 9:45 on a Sunday morning). Maybe in the suburbs I could see people actually owning these cars... but a Lamborghini? Here?

Looking for steel deck contractors

Hi,

We are thinking about adding a deck onto our residence and wondered if any neighbors out there had a good experience with contractors who install steel decks.

TIA (which my teenage nephew tells me is short for "Thanks in advance").

  • SBloom architect, dad and a half, 25 years north side

    Since the wood porch collapse disaster, the City rewrote and upgraded the building requirements for wood porches which made constructing wood porches considerably more expensive. Steel decks are still more expensive, but when you factor in life cycle maintenance costs, steel is now competitive. I'm hoping I don't get a mini stroke when the bids come back.

    Also, If you use steel, the deck can be built tighter to the lot line. According to code, wood decks need to be 6' from the lot line.

  • We rebuilt our wood deck a few years ago - it was a pain. The requirements are really strict now, and were so recently changed that our contractor didn't really understand them (he was a crummy contractor too, that didn't help) and we kept getting conflicting info from the inspectors. I don't doubt steel decks are competitive now. The only downside would be, there are probably less contractors that do them, so it may be hard to get good quotes.

    I just moved here from out of state and while I understand it's not winter yet (this does go along with the parking question from above-sort of), I see where it also says that you cannot park on the street if the snow is above 2 inches deep. I don't understand this, as sometimes snow storms hit in the middle of the night here and will I have to rush out and try and move my car to another spot? Or is it still ok to park there prior to a snow storm? I'm so confused.

  • Read this article regarding Snow Route signs: http://theexpiredmeter.com/2008/12/the-lowdown-on-snow-routes/

    Essentially, you can be ticketed and towed when the snow is more than 2" deep at these locations. It doesn't matter if there wasn't any snow when you parked your car.

* Am a great cook--healthy and tasty meals usually--but can also make the "comfort foods" we all love too.

* Some child care--as the eldest of 7, helped raise my younger siblings, plus recently I've taken care of my friends' kids when they've gone out for the evening & when they've gone to Europe for 2 weeks. Can provide references

* Have 20+ years in sales & marketing, so if you need some help with marketing your business--or just need someone to type your manuscript--happy to help.

* Some personal care assistance--worked in a hospital many years ago plus experience working with family members who have challenges (my 25 year old niece was born with a neural tube disorder and my aunt had ALS)--so could provide some assistance to you.

East Riverbank riprap

It was exciting to have access returned to the east riverbank this weekend.
I can't say like what I saw when visiting the river. The white riprap is not aesthetically pleasing. The bright white is blinding as it reflects the sun. It also replaced so much space for greenery... place used to have a magical feel...
Is this the final product? Any chance that riprap can be covered with soil / planted?
The said there would be more paths / access but this kind of feels like a concrete wall...

Maintenance Entering Your Apartment Without Permission

I've lived at the same building for a better part of five years (Leland and Winchester) and came home to this (photo). My shoes RIGHT at my front door, all neatly lined up.
I left this morning through the front door so obviously no way I would have placed them there.
I came home through the back door this evening, and the second I saw them I freaked out a bit.
Nothing was stolen that I know of. My credit card and jewelry are here, TV is still here...so I'm assuming it was a creepy-ass maintenance person.
Has anyone ever experienced this? Who DOES THAT?!?! Fricking creepy to the n'th degree. UGH.

    What if your landlord's realtor not only does a showing without notice but then leaves your door unlocked? Yeah. True story.

  • In Chicago, a municipal ordinance [Chapter 5-12] known the Residential Landlord and Tenant Ordinance ("RLTO" -- see http://www.tenants-rights.org/residential-landlord-tenant-ordinance/) prohibits entry to dwelling units absent exigent circumstances [i.e.,a broken water pipe, etc] or unless mngt provides a 48-hour notice. If entry is made to a dwelling unit, a written is required to be provided.

    I'm not going to say that the new library doesn't look good.
    But I wasn't then, and am not now, convinced that what we needed was a completely new building.

    I don't feel that there was anything really "wrong" with the old one that couldn't have been improved with some electrical and tech updates.
    Much as we as residents (and businesses) do with older buildings we live and work in.
    And early 1960's isn't that old; the building wasn't difficult, just a big open box.

    The new building doesn't seem much larger. It really doesn't seem to have much more parking (not that we really needed it in pedestrian-friendly Albany Park). I'm counting only five new bike lock-up posts.

    What the library system needs is better materials and programs; something that probably could have been achieved in the older structure.

    I've been in some of the newer libraries and was shocked to see just a few older computers available with a cumbersome system if (God forbid) you wanted to make a printed copy. Hopefully, this kind of head-up-the-b*tt thinking has been addressed.

    I view this entire building bonanza as little more than a Daley-Era corruption kickback mess.
    Again, not that it doesn't look nice.

  • Well, Dan on Monticello, I very much disagree, and am thrilled to see this change. The old library was built in 1952, over a gas station, during a, pre-environmentally concerned era. As to the parking, I counted approx. 16 spaces, I didn't count the bicycle parking area. The old building...

As to the parking, I counted approx. 16 spaces, I didn't count the bicycle parking area. The old building was not architecturally, much to look at. The new building is one and a half times the size of the older one. And, in a neighborhood that includes two universities, numerous grammar schools and two high schools, it's only right that the library reflect the educational facilities available. And in a purely personal view; we live in a middle income, somewhat overlooked area. For us to be gifted with this is just wonderful. I am very much looking forward to the opening, as I use the library often, and live just a block away. So if it is, as you say a bonanza, let's enjoy it!

    I know for sure it was gun shots. There was someone in extreme close proximity to where the shots were released. The identity of the shooter was unknown to the person.

Ravenswood Metra Stop

Can we get some signs posted on the Northbound side telling people trying to get on at Ravenswood to GET OUT OF THE WAY of people exiting the train? Every day when I get off the train, there are around twenty to thirty people who stand in the middle of the platform waiting to board and it's a huge mess. With only one exit off the platform, it would be great if people trying to get on the train could wait at the far end of the platform - completely out of the way.

    My point in posting this was to see if others were feeling the same frustrations as I was. I genuinely feel that if people were to wait at the north end of the platform, this wouldn't be a problem. The front cars on the train are rarely full. Obviously, this is a failure in Metra's part for only creating one exit, which I'm sure is a fire or safety hazard... particularly during the madness of Ravinia rush hour.

    But I agree, simple courtesy from the passengers waiting to board would be great. Just line up against the fence to allow people to pass freely, instead of standing in the middle of the platform.

    Thanks for reading my rant.

  • Thanks for posting this. Getting out of that temporary station at rush hour is a fire hazard waiting to happen. It's especially bad when the Ravinia crowd obstructs the doors instead of letting the passengers off first, as you stated. At least the old station had more than one exit.

    And if that new station ever opens, it looks like it might have more than one way out. IF it ever opens. Anyone know when that is?!?
