Any good news in West Garfield Park?

I bought a property here ten years ago and have not seen much improvement. I live in the building. I hope that the Lot Program, or whatever it is called, which allowed EGP residents a shot at buying vacant lots for a buck moves into WGP. There are at least 6 vacant lots on my block. Gardens!

  • There is something called the "Large Lot" program which offers vacant lots for sale for 1 dollar with a maximum purchase of 2. You have to live at and own a property on the block where this is being offered. EGP started taking applications for lot purchases on July 1st. If that is where you reside, I wouldn't waste any time!

  • Taj's page are envirnoment dose not define who we are.

    Thank you so much.
    I'm on it now!

Pete's Fresh Market

I visited Pete's and I was impressed. The store is a lot bigger than I thought it was. I didn't get to really shop like I wanted because I had my 4 year old twins with me. Pete's does not have the kid friendly carts where I can put both kids in one cart. Instead they have kid sized carts for kids to push. My kids enjoyed them but I didn't enjoy chasing them. LOL I will go back minus my kids!

    My neighbor and I had a good time there. At last! There is a really nice grocerystore nearby. That other new store whose name starts with an M....will have a run for their money that is for sure.

Playground at N St. Louis & W Carroll

I've put in a call to the Alderman and talked to city workers about the state of the playground at St. Louis and Carroll, which currently has two functioning swings, a missing slide, and several burned areas. Kids (3 &4 years old) are hanging from the swings and someone is going to get hurt. If anyone else feels like throwing their two cents in to Alderman Ervin's office, the help is mmuch appreciated. Phone number: 773-533-0900. Thanks!

  • Cat

    Forgot to post that I got a letter from Ervin and the swings are now fixed. Still need to get new slides, but it's progress.

  • gpblight 15 Yr East Garfield Resident

    All the city needs is some lawsuits from parents for kids hurt on broken swings, slides, etc. Keep at it! Send in requests again.

Found intact black male pit

I can't figure out how to add photos to the previous post. This guy is all black with a white spot on the chest. He's very friendly and not aggressive toward other dogs. Found at Central Park & Franklin. I can't keep him and I don't want to take him to the pound. Any help is appreciated. If anyone knows someone missing him or can foster him, please let me know.

  • Ev

    Did you find his family? I think I may have seen him listed as missing on the facebook page: Lost Dogs Illinois.

  • Cat

    I didn't find anyone missing him. Is there a link you can send? I checked the page and didn't see it. Thanks!
