Recent police activity

Anyone know what happened between Hubbard and Grand that had the police out with guns drawn this morning?

  • Hmm, I heard gunshots near Grand and May, but that was around 11 PM last night.

Guns Shots

I live on Ohio and May and heard at least 5 gunshots around 11 PM last night. Did anyone else hear them? Pretty scary.

    What was the police response? They should have been there within ten minutes of your 911 call

  • I actually did not call. I couldn't tell what direction they came from, nor could my boyfriend. In hindsight we should've just picked up the phone and placed the call..

    Police resources are allocated, in part, based on the volume of 911 calls. When in doubt, call 911

Loud Dance Party

What is up with the loud, all-night dance parties that seem to take place at Wolcott and Hubbard? I've been hearing them for over two years now, and I am starting to get tired of the nonstop noise on Sunday afternoons/nights. My husband and I joke that there's another rave happening, but seriously, we cannot enjoy our weekends outside when these parties take place. We're a few blocks away; I really feel for the people that live closer to the party.

We have the opportunity to have a say something now.

I got a notice in the mail from the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection for a Liquor License. It says it it is required to send public notice of a new liquor or amusement license application to all legal voters within 250 feet of the proposed location. All objections must be received by the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Projection/Local Liquor Control Commission by October 16.

    I work a few blocks from here and I 100% support the liquor license . This section of town is a desert for those who want to walk to grab a drink or bite to eat. Our office ends up having to drive for most work outings/client meet ups. I think this place will be beneficial for the neighborhood. And like another commenter said, it's a restaurant, not a club or late night bar destination.

  • The corner where Jerk is being built is largely open and faces Chicago and Halsted. There should be little to no concern for noise problems from patrons or the establishment itself. It's a food joint not a night club.

    I work (often late) directly adjacent to the building, and this area is in desperate need of quality food options. It will only be all that much better if they can serve alcohol along with the meal.

Santa Maria Addolorata Church Fight

This is the last straw Santa Maria Addolorata church holds noisy parties every Saturday night from May to the end of September. Loud music and kids running outside past close to midnight, I've called 311 more than once to complain. Last week the noisy party ends with a flood of people fighting from the party taking in to the middle of Ada St. Police were called but this type of partying just have to end once and for all.
