What alderman, city planner, or person was responsible for the safety Island installed at the intersection of Archer ave & Francisco?. This will impede the flow of the traffic on Archer and will create a real nice mess of traffic and air pollution during rush hour and winter driving. Why weren't residents notified of this? Was a permit issued for this waste of taxpayers money?

  • I agree. Since you put this in, maybe you can look at having people maybe not park during rush hour on Archer Ave. It amazes me that no one can go to the stop light and cross the street there.

    When We were younger. We were taught to cross at the corners , look both ways etc. Now , People are entitled to just walk across anywhere the please and without looking !! And 'REMOVE the damned island We the People are speaking!!!! Dont let our gov become dictators !!!

    IDOT held a community meeting regarding it at the Brighton library at least 2 years ago. At that time they wanted to put it at Richmond which would have made traffic at Sacramento even worse. There were only 6 of us in attendance and I haven’t heard anything since. Those of us there were against the Island but they were adamant that it was going up but didn’t know where. We agreed that Francisco was a better spot over Richmond.

    Who are they? Still want it out cause they did not advertise this well enough!

    2 years ago they had a hearing and they put it in now? How did they get the word out? In the Brighton Park Life news?
