Blue Line remodel, medical marijuana plans take shape

1947 W. Chicago Ave.: Upzoning request is with Chicago Grand Neighbors Association.

Garbage collection: Private pickups come very early (4-5am) for south alley in 2000 block of Division. Ald. Proco Joe Moreno will attend a meeting at SmallBar on the issue. This violate both ordinance and liquor license plans of operation.

1815 W. Division St.: Development for the parcel at Division and Honore (east of LaSalle II school) is now back to its original proposal, since Trader Joe's is no longer considering that location.

Renting Table & Chairs?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a place to rent a banquet table and chairs? I only need 1 table (that can hold 10 people) and 10 chairs for the weekend.

  • Thanks, Doolins will be perfect and it's a good price.

  • Wow. I did not know that Doolin's rented tables and chairs. Wonder if they also rent coat racks. We always drive to some place south west. Doolin's is much closer and we go there for all of our other supplies. Thank you for the tip. I will check it out.

West town SSA - unfairly raising resident property taxes

It seems the overwhelming majority of residents would be AGAINST this very significant tax given the benefits almost exclusively seen by business and not west town residents.

There were some posts in October about the West Town SSA - was anyone at the hearing on Oct. 2 about the reconstitution of the SSA? What is the status?

    SECOND West Town SSA Reconstitution
    Public Hearing!

    Get your facts straight before you make a decision. SSA's only tax the properties within the designated district, not residents outside the district. The tax is not "very significant." It's a small percentage of what a property owner's tax would normally be. And everyone benefits. SSA's are the reason you...

It's a small percentage of what a property owner's tax would normally be. And everyone benefits. SSA's are the reason you have clean streets, nice trash cans, street banners, events, and other such improvements. I would say that benefits all the residents. And SSA's truly give the local neighborhood control of how this money is spent, and not politicians or City Hall.

  • I don't see anything online about a Nov 24 meeting. Is there a meeting on Monday? Also, I never heard what happened at the October 2 meeting. Does anyone know?

Have a Toddler? Let's Hang Out and Have a Playdate!

We live on Damen and Ohio and we have an 18-month-old daughter. We're looking for parents with toddlers close to her age in this area.

We've been meeting some wonderful parents with small children, but most of them live more than half hour away. So we're hoping to meet more families in this very neighborhood!

I'm a stay-at-home mom and I would really like our daughter to socialize with other children as much as possible. It's also starting to get cold, so we'd like to make this network happen before the snow sticks to the ground!

If you're in the same boat, please feel free to post a comment or send me a personal message! I'm always happy to meet new people!

We've attached our lovely daughter in her Halloween outfit! Enjoy!

Missing Cat Armour St Across From Otis

Missing grey and white long hair tortoiseshell cat.
She may have a pink chevron collar with a name tag that reads Ramona.

The phone number is old.
If found please contact me immediately (734) 478-1364.
She is 4 years old, not used to being outside and VERY missed.

  • Hello. On Monday of this week I was biking eastbound on Erie and I saw a cat that looked just like this cross right in front of me. It was somewhere between Ashland and Noble and the cat crossed from the north side of Erie the street to the south. It was around 9:00pm. Hope you find her.

  • Hi. I just saw a cat in the alley between Ohio and Erie, between Armour and Bishop. It had white legs and colored top...I'm not sure what color since it's dark. I haven't seen cats around at all lately, so this is a new guy. I tried to go after...

    Hi. I just saw a cat in the alley between Ohio and Erie, between Armour and Bishop. It had white legs and colored top...I'm not sure what color since it's dark. I haven't seen cats around at all lately, so this is a new guy. I tried to go after it, but lost it when the car port door went up. It looked fluffy like a longhair. I stress it was dark, and brief, so don't know if it fits your description, but figured any leads might help. I will definitely keep my eye out.

Club Foot Closing After Friday Farewell Party, Massive Garage Sale Planned

"The outpouring of support has been overwhelming, like New Year's Eve every day. I was not prepared for the volume of people. Some are flying back [to Chicago] to say goodbye," said Lauree Rohrig, co-owner of Club Foot, 1824 W. Augusta Blvd.

In January of 1995, Uchida and Rohrig bought the bar, on the northeast corner of Augusta Boulevard and Honore Street.

Rohrig and her husband, Chuck Uchida, met in the late '80s and worked as DJs in the early '90s at Club Dreamerz, which is now Nick's Beer Garden at 1516 N. Milwaukee Ave.
