    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!

    Big developments planned for Sears' Six Corners, Galewood stores
    The last Sears store in Chicago and one the company closed last year are slated to be replaced with developments that combine residential and retail space. Highland Park-based Tucker Development and Seritage Growth Properties are partnering to redevelop stores in the Six Corners shopping district at the edge of the Portage Park neighborhood and on North Harlem Avenue in the Galewood neighborhood, Tucker Development said Wednesday in a news release.
  • Adding to Chris’ list (thank you, Chris) Simón’s Tacos, Cochinita, Shila’s, Easy Street Pizza, Legno, Community Tavern, Hands On Sushi/ Thai, Fannie’s Cafe, Chicago Taco Authority, Ninja Sushi, Bistro 6050, Charley Noble Sandwich Shop, Frank’s Shrimp House, Starbucks being built on Cicero, Foundation Tavern & Grille Being built on Irving. -OR- you can choose to see nothing.

  • Saw this in a storefront on Montrose a few doors east of Milwaukee. Might be in or next door to the smoothie place which I think closed.


    Proud to announce we are coming soon to portage park/Jefferson park! Grand opening date to be announced ...

    Hopefully they will be open soon. This seems to be their mobile operation:

Sears and Forensics

Does anyone know what happened behind the Sears today? At about 11am there were forensics cops and my wife was told the store would not be open today.

  • I think they were investigating the slow and painful death of Sears Holdings Corporation.

  • We recently purchased a police scanner. Things are very busy for our police. Recently I read about long wait times due to the lack of beat police. Its absolutely awful knowing you can wait ,20 + minutes for a squad to arrive.
    There are incidents that never make it posted anywhere because of the amount of crime daily. As a person who is now privy to the calls, and the hold times of responses due to lack of sufficient police, you should call the alderman and mayor!
