Chuy Says NO to the Belmont Flyover!

Calling the proposed Flyover “an unnecessary expenditure of taxpayer funds that will generate little return on investment,” Chuy Garcia expressed his opposition to the Flyover.

A vote for Chuy Garcia is a vote to save Central Lakeview!

  • I was undecided about who to vote for, but now it looks like I am voting for Rahm. We need a mayor who is not vague about how to improve the CTA.

  • Lynn Olejniczak Life-long Chicagoan, who loves her city.

    A study showed that the El isn't as "late" as the proponents of this deal want you to believe. The public meeting at the Belmont Police station was nothing more than a display of maps where the fly over was supposed to be and location-counterdicting pictures of soon to be "available store fronts for your new business."
    I went in to the meeting unsure of my position but left feeling that the CTS and those backing it were trying to pull the wool over my eyes.

Rooftop Deck -Permit


I'm interested in building a rooftop deck on top of a 3 unit condominium. Can anyone share any tips on the permit/inspection process?

Much appreciated

  • You're going to want architectural drawings, structural engineering calculations and you're going to need two entrance/exits. A professional architect and contactor should be able to guide you through the permitting process.

  • Start making hefty contributions to your Alderman, and start saving your shekels for putting your lawyer's kids through college because you're entering some lengthy if not endless litigation.

    Alternately, you could save yourself and a lot of other people a lot of trouble and just put a few lawn chairs and a Weber grill on your roof. Go for Old Skool Charm, instead of Money-Grubbing Ugly.

    Anybody with me on this? Can I see a show of hands? Thanks.
