Beverly Farmers Market

With all the beautiful parks and spaces in Beverly, Morgan Park, I wonder why the organizer(s) chose a commuter parking lot on 95th st to host the farmers market?

Do you think a change in venue would boost attendance, therefore bring in more vendors?

  • Thanks everyone for a well researched debate. Leavitt Lady thanks for going out and meeting with the vendors on Sunday. It is initiative like this that can bring us a better market. Let your vendors know what would make it better. Let them know to bring signs, chairs, tables with them. Let them know we want more choices and they will succeed even with competition. We can do it together. Join our committee or follow us for updates to bring a better market to Beverly. Our website is www.movethemarket.info

  • Bringing more people to the market would be great. Everyone spreading the word about what a good market we have is great. Improving signs and publicity for the market is great. Our current vendors have wonderful produce, meats, fruits, breads, cheese and more. Maybe the effort needs to be changed...

    Bringing more people to the market would be great. Everyone spreading the word about what a good market we have is great. Improving signs and publicity for the market is great. Our current vendors have wonderful produce, meats, fruits, breads, cheese and more. Maybe the effort needs to be changed from Move the Market to "Shop the Beverly Market - Support Your Local Farmer!" If we want more vendors we need to support the ones we have! Then the word would spread that Beverly is really the place to be. The focus of the market is provide local, fresh foods to our neighborhood.

City vouchers used in expensive high rises downtown

Just in from Crains Chicago. City issued super vouchers are being used in expensive downtown high rises like the Aqua. Pandering by the mayor. Personally, where can i sign up. I would love that! After all I am paying for it. Will the last person leaving the city
shut the lights off. Detroit here we come.

  • CM WP (CM! Winters) Coll. Librarian, CPS Parent & Ward 21 Citizen

    Where is the link for he vouchers. We should apply and report out!

  • robin in WRP Tired and Cranky

    So wealthy people who can't rent out their condos/apartments get market value from the city? Ridiculous!

The Fire Department is to award an extra 5 points to graduates of CPS.

Yet, more pandering by the city. Why should my kids be punished? I am all
for the extra points going to Service men only. That includes women also. Just
because you went and graduated, thats Wrong. That is the sort of BS, thats doing
harm to the city.

  • To dumb to go volley? Its about taking a test and scoring well. The extra points should be for members of the Armed Forces only. That's the least we can do as a society.

  • Not volley, it was college. Blame that on my public school education.

The East and Westbound Beverly Nightmare

Why is it that the City of Chicago Department of Transportation can't seem to communicate with one another? Is there some kind of contest to see how many east and westbound streets in Beverly can be ripped up at the same time? First, it was the multi-phased infrastructure improvement project on 95th street that seems to be taking A LOT longer than anyone ever anticipated. Last sighting still had steel plates spanning sections of roadway from Leavitt to Wood.

Why is it that the City of Chicago Department of Transportation can't seem to communicate with one another? Is there some kind of contest to see how many east and westbound streets in Beverly can be ripped up at the same time? First, it was the multi-phased infrastructure improvement project on 95th street that seems to be taking A LOT longer than anyone ever anticipated. Last sighting still had steel plates spanning sections of roadway from Leavitt to Wood.

Follow that up with the infrastructure improvement work on 103rd street from Western to Beverly Avenue resulting in daily closures (presumably through the end of July), diverting traffic to 99th and 111th. And if the going wasn’t tough enough already, on Monday, infrastructure work began on 99th street. Yup, the very street people were diverted to use as a detour to 103rd street, now bringing that thoroughfare to a crawl. What a brilliant move! Let’s dig up another east/west artery and put more stress on a roadway that's already in dire need of repair.

Why not just go for the Grand Slam and start making improvements on 111th. No…just kidding!

The businesses along 95th and 103rd along with the residents who travel these thoroughfares have suffered enough already with the poorly planned timing and prolonged execution of these projects.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for seeing the city make the much needed—and probably long overdue—infrastructure improvements. Just why did it have to happen at all at once?

  • Paul Active resident

    I have to say I was pretty blown away when the suggested detours also had construction and closures. I think 99th has destroyed the suspension on my last 2 vehicles. Don't forget they also chose this summer to replace the railroad crossings at 103rd and Sacramento and the Rock Island line at 111th.

    We all know there are only two seasons in Chicago. Winter and Construction.

  • The other problem is that the DOT didn't use their own crew to execute these projects. If they did, projects like 95th street would have been completed long ago. Instead, i'm guessing that the city bid these projects out to independent contractors—probably suburban-based that were most likely the lowest bidder—and...

    The other problem is that the DOT didn't use their own crew to execute these projects. If they did, projects like 95th street would have been completed long ago. Instead, i'm guessing that the city bid these projects out to independent contractors—probably suburban-based that were most likely the lowest bidder—and the brain trust in the DOT office didn't include any incentives for finishing the job early. One would hope that the folks in our 19th Ward office would take more interest in pushing these project through and keeping the residents and businesses of the 19th Ward more informed on their start and completion dates. Any takers out there if you're reading?

    I bet if Mayor Rahm lived around here, these projects would have been completed at supersonic speed. Instead, we get the "Southside Shuffle"—which consists of inching traffic cones, detour signs and construction equipment from one block to the next.

    Let's hope that all these infrastructure projects are wrapped up and all the streets are repaved before the snow begins to fly or it's going to make for one interesting pothole season this winter.

Why are people leaving for the western suburbs, such as Lagrange?

I was wondering why? Quality schools,shopping or dining out. The ward seems to have all of that locked up. Why would you want to move. When the there will be two speed cameras. Don't forget its for the children. I have to put my kids in private school. We will leave that as it is. I have plenty of fine shopping. Orland is close. No parking meters. Run out for a good dinner.

I was wondering why? Quality schools,shopping or dining out. The ward seems to have all of that locked up. Why would you want to move. When the there will be two speed cameras. Don't forget its for the children. I have to put my kids in private school. We will leave that as it is. I have plenty of fine shopping. Orland is close. No parking meters. Run out for a good dinner. The pizza market is fine. lets not forget the police protection and the gang funerals. I never remember ever being in any procession EVER! That needed to have a helicopter over it. Our elected official's don't want to upset that part of their constituency. So, truly whats the answer? I am just venting, the area isn't what it used to be. Where is heading? If the city ever removes the residency requirement, will the last person out shut off the lights.

  • Schools, Schools, Schools. When the city continues to place selective enrollment schools on the North side and disregards the needs of the South side, middle class families feel the need to move.

  • I totally agree. Its the lack of a good basic education. It seems like the city is a great place to live,if you are young and single or retired. You pay taxes for a school that's not up to 21st century standards. Least not on the south sides. Look at the citied track record in dealing with special needs. Its shameful.
