Considering a move to North Mayfair

Hello, I'm considering buying a house in North Mayfair, probably 5000 north to Foster. Some streets I'm looking at are Tripp, Lowell, Kostner, Kenneth. I'm wondering how diverse the area is and overall safety (do you feel safe walking a dog at 9-10pm?). I've checked out the area during the day and at night. I've also checked Clearmap but I like to get the scoop from residents in the neighborhood. I'm looking forward to feedback from people living in the area. Thank you in advance for your feedback!

  • There is also a Metra stop near Montrose and Cicero. There has always been airplane noise in North Mayfair. Depending on where you are in the neighborhood it has changed but not a ton. Also check on Mayfair which is just south of Lawrence.

    I've lived here about 8 years (Kilbourn) and also love the neighborhood. I know many neighbors through our active neighborhood civic organization and there was also a business development committee formed to help advance businesses in the area. The link to the North Branch Bike Trail is definitely extending to Gompers plus the development of the Weber Spur Trail.

Consider fostering a dog.Chicago Animal Care and Control is 100% full!

Obtained from CACC Transfer FB Page

There were literally zero dog cages available for the strays, owner surrenders and confiscates the shelter is legally required to take in as they arrive. Most rescue groups that pull from CACC can only take as many pups as they have foster homes, adopters and financial support for. If you have ever considered fostering a CACC dog, now is the time.Visit this note for more info: http://tinyurl.com/wanttofoster

    How can we get City, County to allocate more money and space for the pound? it is underfunded and outdated.

  • Good question. I don't know but its something to think about. I wonder how we compare to other cities?

Albany Park Stormwater Diversion Tunnel.

Dear Neighbor,

On Thursday, April 3rd my office hosted two public meetings to give an update on the Albany Park Stormwater Diversion Tunnel.

An afternoon meeting was held at Eugene Field Park Fieldhouse, the evening one at the Albany Park Branch Library. Since 2008, Albany Park has experienced two major floods that have affected hundreds of homes in the community.

From Alderman Laurino:

Dear Neighbor,

On Thursday, April 3rd my office hosted two public meetings to give an update on the Albany Park Stormwater Diversion Tunnel.

An afternoon meeting was held at Eugene Field Park Fieldhouse, the evening one at the Albany Park Branch Library. Since 2008, Albany Park has experienced two major floods that have affected hundreds of homes in the community.

I know how devastating these floods have been for Albany Park residents. It is essential to me that we keep residents informed about the progress of the diversion tunnel. I want to thank the Chicago Department of Transportation and the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District for being at the ready with details as well as responding to community concerns.

I want to thank Mayor Emanuel, as our congressman he brought in FEMA to help those in need and as our mayor he has made the tunnel a reality.

The Stormwater Diversion Tunnel, is expected to cost upwards of $45 million and is currently in the project design phase. Work is anticipated to be completed by this summer when the city's Department of Transportation will put the tunnel construction work out for bid. Construction is expected to start by late summer or early fall with a tunnel project completion date of 2017.

Starting in Eugene Field Park, the drainage tunnel will extend for approximately one mile under Foster Avenue to the North Shore Channel. The tunnel will divert water during times of heavy rains and will not affect the river's water level in normal times.

My office will continue to update residents on the progress of this project. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call my office at 772-736-5595.

- Alderman Margaret Laurino

Dog Sitter needed Friday April 3rd - Saturday the 11th

Dog Sitter needed Friday April 3rd - Saturday the 11th
I'm looking for someone to look after my two dogs for 8 days starting this Friday. It could be someone to stay here overnight, or to come by at least 3 times a day & spend some time with them.

4 year old 70 pound German Shepherd (cautious at first, but very sweet)
7 month old 35 pound Farm Mutt (super friendly cuddly)

We have cable tv & internet.... fenced in yard... easy street parking... food... wifi....

4500 block of North Kostner
** references required

  • I found someone - Victor. The German Shepherd gave him the business at first but then just wanted to play. She'll be happy to see him again. I will give you feedback after we've returned.

  • If you ever need someone in the future.. I am interested.. I have been a dog walker/ petsitter for over 14 years for the same company, and a plus I only live around the block from your home.
    Thank you.

Sirens and someone screaming at sunnyside and merrimac/mobile

Tonight we heard a firetruck and ambulance fly down our street. When we went out to see what was going on, we heard a blood curdling scream. We didnt hear any information on the police radio. Does anyone else know anything about this?
