    Weekly Update from the Alderman - May 25, 2018
    The Chicago Police Department this week successfully led a narcotics mission that arrested 10 individuals for selling narcotics in the Uptown area of the 48th Ward. This joint operation with the 19th and 20th District was focused on gang and drug activity in the area south of Foster.

    "In an effort to maintain the unique characteristics of the EARC neighborhood, a request was made from the EARC Block Club to look into the possibility of rezoning the area bounded by Foster, Bryn Mawr, Glenwood to Clark St., from the current RT-4 zoning to the RS-3 zoning district.."

    Good ol' NIMBYs!

  • If it is an area of single family homes they have a right to ask for the down zoning to keep the character of the area. Not everyone wants to live in a densely populated area.

Former Chicago Ald. Marion Volini, who pushed for Edgewater designation, dies at age 83

The Edgewater Community Council under Volini pushed for the building on Broadway and Thorndale, then a state armory used by the National Guard, to become an indoor recreation center...

    Former Chicago Ald. Marion Volini, who pushed for Edgewater designation, dies at age 83
    Former Ald. Marion Volini, who helped remake the Edgewater neighborhood and served as a key ally to Mayor Harold Washington, has died. She was 83. Volini was the 48th ward alderman from 1978 to 1987, during which she helped Edgewater become the city's 77th official community area.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com

  • headsup not available

    Marion will be missed. She is one of the big reasons Edgewater is so great - she now joins Annette Schroeder, Marilyn Pierce, Kathy Osterman, and Betty Barclay. All these ladies made Edgewater - a city designated ward -into one of Chicago's finest wards. I am sure they are raising a glass as they get together. Thank you for all you have done. Each of them have earned the title "Ladies of Edgewater".

  • Sandy in EdgeGlen EdgeGlen since 1987

    Will definitely miss her--and all of those above who succeeded or worked with her. They were extraordinary in making this one the nation's greatest neighborhoods,

  • A.S Living and Playing in Chicago

    I haven't lived here all my life so this was a great history lesson for me-what a remarkable woman,I'm so blessed with what she has done for this neighborhood. It truly is a gem.
