  • Barbs hey you kids, get off my lawn!

    I believe this was alluded to at the first and only community meeting regarding this project, that Buono only had some kind of "purchase contract" or something... I can't remember the exact term for it, but basically, "current owner" doesn't get paid for the property until the developer has gotten the project off the ground, then it transfers hands at some point. Please some real estate/contract law person help me out here.

    Without seeing their agreement, we can't know exactly what the arrangement is. THat said, in the case of a planned development or redevelopment, such as this one, where the approval process is likely to be long and costly, and the outcome uncertain, it is not at all unusual for the developer to control the property through a purchase option rather than an actual sale.

    The way this works, is that the Developer (in this case, Buono) will pay some amount to the owner (far below the value of the property--e.g. $25,000 for a multi-million dollar property). In return for that payment, the owner will enter into a contract that (i) allows the developer to act on behalf of the property to create plans and work with the municipality to win approvals and (ii) allows the developer to purchase the property at some defined point in the future for a predetermined amount of money.

    More specifically, (ii) will often be structured so that the purchase option becomes effective the moment the property recives development approval from the city, and the price is determined according to some formula driven by the amount and type of density granted to the property.

  • Developers like to use options to control sites that have not yet gone through the approval process because the process itself is so expensive and uncertain and in this way they can minimize their capital at risk during the riskiest portion of the project.

    Also, because otherwise it can be difficult to agree to a price, because the owner wants to be paid for the value of what "could" eventually be developed, while the developer would be crazy to pay based on the hope of developing something that has not already been approved.

I am also looking for a mechanic to let me know how much longer I can keep my 14-year old beast running or if it is time to let her go because keeping her running would be too expensive.

Gas or Sewer smell?

There has been construction going on around Kimball and Palmer for the past week and a half. Today we noticed a strong sent of what could be gas in our apartment. The upstairs neighbors have the smell as well. It seems to be coming from the drain in the basement. Our landlord received a message from Peoples stating that other people around the area have had similar complaints and that the smell is not gas but a combination of paint thinner and ammonia in the sewers. The fire department also came out and checked out the situation and said the same thing. Has anyone else had any issues with this smell?

  • yourhandsmyface Palmer square. Drummer.

    You may have dry water traps in your basement. Take a few cups of water and fill all floor drains, sinks, showers, etc in the lowest level in the house. The piping is designed to trap a small amount water to separate the air in your home from the sewer. These often dry out over time, and if the city is agitating the sewer you'll likely smell it

I have heard aldermanic candidates bashed in this forum for accepting PAC monies. Here's the truth, candidates scrape together money to run their campaign, especially when they are not an incumbent. Many times, PACs will go to the website, click the link and donate. Boom-a Pac has supported a candidate. Is this wag the dog behavior? Does this mean that that candidate is tethered to the PAC and will do their bidding if elected? Of course not! Anyone can donate to a fund. Let's look at the alternative-a new candidate has received a PAC contribution. This PAC is controversial. Should they spend time, energy and resources processing refunds of much needing funding to run the campaign?,... or just hope that common sense will prevail when people are perusing through the campaign contributors. UMMMM-common sense maybe? And seriously if this is the only negative thing you hear about a candidate it's probably because there is nothing else bad to say about them.

When a liquor establishment contributes to a fund does it mean the candidates an alcoholic? This is tantamount to assuming that a candidate who takes money from Walgreens is seeking prescription drugs illegally. Crazy right?!

I encourage you skeptics to go to the state board of elections candidate contributions. Look at who is accepting money from whom, and then imagine you are a conspiracy theorist and want to write bad things about the candidate based on contributors. Voila! You have lots of ammo. You could fabricate stories like crazy because, chances are, there are contributors that are not perfect,... or that have enemies, ...or that do not conform to certain ideals Don't let these forums and this bashing dictate your vote. Educate yourself and make your own decisions!! ...and if you read this-thanks for the few minutes of your time have a great day!

For example, if a candidate, for at least one year preceding the February 24, 2015 Municipal General Election, resides in what was Ward 1 prior to redistricting, such candidate may run for Alderman in 2015 in any new ward after redistricting that contains a part of the old Ward 1 prior to redistricting, even if the candidate’s residence address is not in the new ward. If elected, that person may be re-elected from the new ward he or she represents if he or she resides in the new ward for at least one year next preceding the re-election, meaning that for the February 26, 2019 Municipal General Election, such person must establish residency in the new ward not later than February 26, 2018

    Ask yourself: why would a PAC whose sole reason for existing is to privatize/de-unionize public schools under the banner of "choice" support your candidate? Obviously because they think she will be more likely to vote their way.

    Now ask yourself: why would a PAC whose sole reason for existing is to attack Rahm Emanuel's progressive critics support your candidate? Obviously because they think she will be more likely to vote Rahm's way.

Alderman Defends Choice of Ex-Offender to Lead Political Group

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/02/us/alderman-defends-choice-of-ex-offender-to-lead-political-group.html

When Alderman Joe Moreno feuded recently with the Democratic committeeman in his First Ward constituency, he decided to form what he called an “independent Democratic political organization.”
To lead the reform-themed group, called 1st Ward First, Mr. Moreno tapped someone from a category of Chicagoans who he says need support: ex-offenders.

That someone, Juan Elias, pleaded guilty to the state charge of mutilation of election materials in 1997, after a failed run for Democratic committeeman of the 26th Ward. In 1986, he was convicted on a drug charge after the police caught him with more than three pounds of marijuana.

you can do a "virtual search" of shelters up to 200 miles from your zip code on www.petharbor.com - Don't get too picky with the search terms. This is NOT a substitute for physically checking the shelter.

If your pet is microchipped, call the chip company to report your pet lost. Make sure they have your current phone and address. Keep this information current - some chipped animals are found weeks, months, or even years after they get lost.

Post to Lost Dogs Illinois on Facebook - this is a volunteer group that reunites lost pets and their owners. They may take time to approve your post.

make flyers - they should have a clear photo, a valid phone number and/or email (a "throw away" email, such as "FindFluffy@_____.com" is a good idea) and the word "REWARD". Post at vets, police and CTA stations, stores, etc.

If someone claims to have found your pet, ask them to meet you at a vet or a police station - some people try to claim $$ without giving you the pet.

It is common for pets to be lost for days before someone finds them. Look in shelters outside the city - people who find pets don't always take them to the closest shelter.

If you FOUND a pet:

If the animal is NOT friendly enough for you to safely handle, PLEASE call 311 and ask for an animal control officer to pick the pet up. CACC is NOT some sort of mass euthanasia nightmare. It may take up to 24 hours for an officer to arrive, so plan to keep the pet safely confined for that amount of time.

ALWAYS TAKE A LOST PET TO THE CLOSEST STRAY-HOLDING SHELTER. In Chicago this is CACC at 2741 S Western.

    I'd also like to add that while you may have heard that the city will be shortening the stray holding period from five days to three days, that's not entirely true - most animals will still be held for a MINIMUM of five days, but private rescue groups will be allowed to transfer animals out "early" at three days, as opposed to having to wait the full five day period to transfer. Being placed in CACC's adoption program or being euthanized still will not take place until after the five days is up. Having even a few animals leave "early" for rescue will actually mean more space for animals that are coming in, which will actually mean less euthanasia.

    I was going to include this in my main post but that 2000 character limit - yeesh!

    If they're seven and ten years old, both PAWS and Treehouse would be hesitant to spay/neuter them without getting bloodwork done first, and neither place will chip them without being fixed.

    I second the suggestion with ANY lost animal to meet the owner at a vet office so they can have it chipped on site (though not all of them will be able to afford it plus the registration fees) a good alternative may be to offer to buy them an inexpensive nylon collar and write their phone number on it with a permanent pen.

    Chicago Animal Care and Control will allow you to post flyers there for both lost and found animals, however you have to actually go down there to post them.

    Please don't judge animal control - they probably accept far more animals than you think and also euthanize far, far fewer than you think.
