Anyone know what, if anything, is going in at that location at Damen/Webster? Looks likes work is going on.

  • Just to clarify.
    The presentation to the Wicker P&D was strictly informational.
    They presented pretty much what you have already seen in the media.
    They were a last minute addition to an already full agenda.
    A large portion of our agenda was already dedicated to chewing out a developer on another project and we barely had time to ask questions ourselves.

    When anything progresses, we will let you know.

    Here's the tactic of the developer in a nutshell. The land is zoned low density where the building currently cannot be built above a certain level. S/he submits a design that is way beyond tolerable density. Their real goal? Somewhere in the middle and higher if they get it. I don't mind the project, I mind the size and future density. That area on Milwaukee was once a void between Damen and Western. Too much too soon would make it a horribly dense extension of Milwaukee that currently exists southeast of Damen & North. They also are proposing this in winter so the thought of summer traffic horrors are away from your mind.

Not cool, Moreno

Is it normal for campaign volunteers to canvass door-to-door at 8pm? We were putting our 6 month old to bed and got our buzzer rung...twice! My husband ran outside and gave them the what-for. The goons seemed less than contrite.

  • 1st Ward Alderman Proco Joe Moreno

    Hi Alya,
    Sorry for the disturbance. It is common for campaign volunteers to canvass at times when it seems likely that residents will be home from work. I'll speak to our volunteers personally to address this specific complaint.
    Thank you for the feedback.

  • All our volunteers have been asked to not canvas past 7pm. I, too, am a mom and in general, feel residents are settled for the evening by that time. Have also reminded all volunteers that NO literature is to go into mail boxes. Have seen some literature (not ours) slid in the boxes. Working towards Feb 24 -- unless we have a run off, residents should not be bothered after that date! Don't forget -- 1st Ward Debate Jan 29, 7pm at Wells High School.

  • I, too had an incident about a week ago-I believe they were campaigning for Jan Schawosky. I probably spelled that incorrectly. Anyway, they laid on my buzzer like the building was on fire and woke me up. (I had the flu.) I just said "no thank you" and they went away. I should have gone downstairs and explained to them why this behavior was unacceptable. Can't believe they think this is ok.

Chimney Sweep / Inspection Service

Can anyone recommend a service for a chimney sweep / inspection? We have a wood burning fireplace that we would love to use, but want to make sure it's safe.
Also does anyone know what the ballpark cost is for a cleaning/inspection?

Thanks in advance!

Bloomingdale Trail Attracts 128-Apartment Plan at Aldi Site in Wicker Park

WICKER PARK — A plan to revitalize an Aldi grocery store and bring more than 100 apartments to the corner of Milwaukee Avenue and Leavitt Street was met with excitement for the concept but resistance over the size by some members of a neighborhood group earlier this week.

Centrum Partners LLC's is proposing a mixed-use residential and retail development at 1759-67 N. Milwaukee Ave. that would span 171,426 square feet near the elevated Bloomingdale Trail.

Next, Palmer is scheduled to meet with members of the Bucktown Community Organization's Zoning and Planning Committee at 8 a.m. Saturday at the Map Room, 1949 N. Hoyne Ave.
