I’ve given up on trying to battle wild violets, crabgrass & bare patches on our front lawn. Any recommendations for a landscaping company for removal, soil prep & new sod? About how much should it cost (standard bungalow front lawn, not the parkway) & do I have to wait until Fall or is anytime OK? I’d prefer a company that didn’t use a whole load of chemicals that harm bees, worms etc. I’m in Portage Park.

Ahead of this week's public meeting on The Point, I wanted to answer some frequently asked questions my office has received about the proposal. Below is a bullet-pointed list of what the developers will present. - 50,000 square feet of ground-floor retail along Milwaukee Ave. and Irving Park Rd. - Aldi is committed as the anchor to the retail space - 265 residential, senior living units: 86 independent, 141 assisted, and 38 memory care - 237 parking spaces: 165 covered and 72 open air - Two public plazas along Milwaukee Ave. - A pedestrian connection between Milwaukee and Irving Park The plan adheres to the Six Corners Master Plan by activating underutilized land for private and public use. Retail and residential mixed-use development is a cornerstone of the redevelopment goals within the plan. I hope you will join me on Thursday, June 21, at 6:30 pm at Filament Theatre, 4041 N. Milwaukee, to learn more.

Authored by Mark Glennon via Wirepoints.com, The taxpayer bill for the Obama Center to be built on Chicago's Southside now appears to be $224 million, not $172 million as initially reported, and it's certainly not privately funded as initially promised.

I know there was a recent post about roofers but I can't seem to find it. Is a permit needed for this and does anybody have recommendations of people that they have used who are reputable. Thanks in advance.
