Wow the city actually used their brains this time, they were replacing some gas/sewer/water lines not sure exactly what it was under the road and at the same time tore up and redid the pretty bad sidewalks around the park.

I haven't seen the homeless man that sits in the bus enclosure on Irving park near cicero for about 2 weeks now. He is the man that never begs and has been out there a few years now. Does anyone know what happen to him?

There was a question asked in another thread about what the status is at the empty lot at Central and Waveland. There was a meeting at Chicago academy in the spring about a Alzheimer’s memory development to be built. Is this one going to stay vacant as long as the Belmont and Narragansett site?

I am buying a condo that has cable wired for the living room and the master bedroom. However, I want to move the cable hookup to the opposite wall in the living room and add a hookup to the spare bedroom.
Any suggestions/recommendations for electricians in the area who can do this type of work? I know Comcast would run the wires, but they won't run them through walls so that is out.
Also, anyone have experiences with this and roughly how much it cost? All answers appreciated.

Approx 4 shots fired this morning 4100/4200 N. Lockwood from a passing car. Nothing but trouble coming from that corner apartment building across from the school. Police were notified . Be careful out there & report incidents.

Does anyone know what gives with the boarded up apartments on 3700 (ish) Central. Looks like a gut to condo and they're waiting for all tenant leases to expire? Been this way for a long while now and is not a pretty sight.

Does anyone know who continues to light these things? This has gone on since spring and it is beyond annoying and my dog freaks out forever.
PPNA Public Meetings are usually held on the third Monday of each month. Because our October Public Meeting date falls on the same date as a meeting to gather input on the redesign of the Jefferson Park Transit Center, we are canceling our public meeting and encouraging all residents to attend that meeting instead as the transit center is an important asset to the Northwest Side. The meeting details are as follows:
Jefferson Park Transit Center Community Meeting
Monday, October 16, 2017
Copernicus Center Annex @5214 W. Lawrence Ave.
We hope to see you there!

Arena wanted to expand the plan’s boundaries farther north, to include Jefferson Park and Portage Park. Burnett didn’t want to complicate the issue.
“When I’m dealing with developers who bring belligerence to the table and find every single way to get around doing affordable units on site … why wouldn’t you give us a hand in fighting that fight when you have the legal defensible position to do it in this case?” Arena asked.
We were sad to read in the Nadig News that Sunshine Activity Center, a respite program in Portage Park that serves developmentally disabled adults, lost its state funding and will have to close its doors. We were unaware of this and contacted the center to ask if PPNA could help raise awareness of the good work they do and funds to stay open but it does not seem likely that anything can save the center.

Center director Diane Gunaka used her own money to found the center 32 years ago along with Linda Williamson and we would like to thank them and all the employees at Sunshine for providing this very important service to the community for so many years. The center does have outstanding debts, including payroll, so please consider making a donation.
