When Austin Community Academy, 231 N. Pine St., closed in 2007 due to low test scores and violence, three high schools took its place: Austin Polytechnical Academy, Austin Business Entrepreneurship Academy and VOISE Academy High School. The schools now make up the Austin High School Campus.

The Council organized the meeting, which was held at Michele Clark High School, 5101 W. Harrison St., to get suggestions on how to improve the neighborhood's high schools plagued with declining enrollment.

Ivory Banks, 18, a senior at Steinmetz College Prep, 3300 N. Mobile Ave., said reasons for enrolling in different schools vary. Banks said her mom would not let...

Veterans Group: Soliciting at Harlem/ Bryn Mawr and Harlem/Higgins

Does anyone know about the men who have been soliciting near the Blue Line - Harlem Stop? Are they actually collecting for a legitimate organization?

  • joanie 20+ year Resident of Jefferson Park

    The men were out collecting today around 3:30pm. I give them a lot of credit for being out there getting donations on such a cold day.

Coworking space in Norwood Park/Jefferson Park

I'm a web developer who works remotely part time and I wish there were a local coworking space in the neighborhood.

Does anybody else work from home and/or would be interested in a coworking/shared office space in the Norwood Park/Jefferson Park/Portage Park area?

Looking to Buy a Large Single-Family Home

I've been looking to purchase a single-family home for my family for the past 5 months or so. I've seen much of what's out there on the MLS and nothing is quite perfect enough. Maybe we're too picky, but we're patient. So, I figure, why not post here. If anyone knows of a home that is coming up for sale that may suit us, please private message me. We're considering Norwood Park, Edison Park, Sauganash, Forest Glen, Edgebrook, Oriole Park,...

I've been looking to purchase a single-family home for my family for the past 5 months or so. I've seen much of what's out there on the MLS and nothing is quite perfect enough. Maybe we're too picky, but we're patient. So, I figure, why not post here. If anyone knows of a home that is coming up for sale that may suit us, please private message me. We're considering Norwood Park, Edison Park, Sauganash, Forest Glen, Edgebrook, Oriole Park, Norridge, Skokie, Lincolnwood, and other nearby communities. We'd like a 4 or 5 bedroom, 3600sq ft or more living space, open floor plan, 2 or 3 car garage--preferably attached, prefer brick, good-sized yard with grass, preferably fenced in.

Oh, and we currently live in Old Irving in a beautiful and huge townhome, but we are ready for a little more "suburban feel" with grass our dogs can run around in.

Thanks neighbors!
