Land bank.

Howard.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    I thought those first 4 fences were buried on site under the dirt that was hauled in to fill the hole.

  • Landfilling the underground pit was one of the first steps in the development plan.

Pratt land bank

Vacant more than 10 yrs.

  • John Warner Conservative neighbor and person that cares

    Or someplace local like 5/3 Bank.

  • Phill Lucille, give me strength.

    So many empty lots in RP. Sad.

Gated Lot.

This lot is next to another vacant lot across from a lot under development.

  • That's privately owned property on Morse to the east of the Mayne Annex, The Mayne Stage, JB Albertos and across the street from another Tawani project that is under development right now. Is Bruce claiming some authority over telling the owner of private property what they can or can't do...

    That's privately owned property on Morse to the east of the Mayne Annex, The Mayne Stage, JB Albertos and across the street from another Tawani project that is under development right now. Is Bruce claiming some authority over telling the owner of private property what they can or can't do with their own property? Contrary to the claim above, it's not "next to another vacant lot". The owner is using that lot as a parking area in support of a highly successful business on Morse Avenue. It's not "vacant" or unused. Is there a point to posting these photos of privately owned property?

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Yes, I think there's a point. It's obviously #3 in a series entitled The Vacant Lots of Rogers Park. What will Tuesday bring? Will it be east or west of Clark? I can hardly wait. Wonder whether he has Mo's farm on his list of vacant lots.

  • Bruce_ Comment by TBD, whom you've muted

    It's all part of a plan.

ISO Waterproof Sling

Any thoughts on where I can find a waterproof immobilization sling? For a big guy with a broken shoulder who desperately needs a shower.
I've trying googling, without much success. I won't have a lot of time to make calls during business hours, so your experiences are appreciated!

  • Sarahdonis Nearly 30 years in Edgewater; love RP & A'ville

    Robin, I’m thinking you could also use contractors’ plastic, with medical waterproof tape.....

  • robin in WRP I support a 28th Amendment 4Free & Fair Elections!

    That's a great idea, thank you!!

Jewelry Appraising?

Looking to get estate jewelry appraised. Any suggestions? We don't want to pay more than the items are worth. And I don't want to schlep the jewelry downtown

  • Heh, I'm not here to entertain; just to be entertained.

  • lisaann mom

    The Bryn Mawr guys are great, both at appraisals and repairs. I have 30 plus years personal experience with them. I do hope this helps, is polite, and up to everyone's standards.

    Why Buying Local Is Worth Every Cent [Infographic]
    Where you decide to shop this holiday season could have a major impact on both the economy and our environment, according to a new infographic from CustomMade, the online marketplace for custom goods.
    https://www.huffingtonpost.com
  • Live From Rogers Park

    Mr. Bill will you post a list of Rogers Park businesses that are locally owned for our holiday shopping? BTW I don't consider buying pizza or an order of Kung Pao chicken as holiday shopping. Please give us a list and do a public service as the chamber.

  • Phill Lucille, give me strength.

    Thank you for encouraging people to shop locally, Mr. Morton. That's good for our neighborhood!

"Logistics" of Target project imposed on us

From a letter sent to Alderman Moore regarding his letter seeking community input to limit construction-related disruption caused by his Target project on Sheridan Road:
"We will absolutely expect more accurate and complete information ahead of time about this project than was ever provided to the neighborhood regarding the hotel construction at Albion and Sheridan, including any notification of when and where sidewalks were to be completely closed (causing great risk to pedestrians walking perilously in traffic to avoid time-consuming...

From a letter sent to Alderman Moore regarding his letter seeking community input to limit construction-related disruption caused by his Target project on Sheridan Road:
"We will absolutely expect more accurate and complete information ahead of time about this project than was ever provided to the neighborhood regarding the hotel construction at Albion and Sheridan, including any notification of when and where sidewalks were to be completely closed (causing great risk to pedestrians walking perilously in traffic to avoid time-consuming delays in crossing Sheridan Road twice to get to the "L", or else jaywalking dangerously across Sheridan), when and why stickered parking spaces were removed (despite promised that this would not happen), and where and when alleys would be totally obstructed, as the one in the 6400 block of North Magnolia already is for a significant portion of any given day for the convenience of the mega-buildings on Sheridan Road."

  • Jeffrey Littleton Omnia sic transeunt ut revertantur

    It's fair to call Sheridan Rd. a residential street from Berwyn to Devon, arterial, but residential.

  • d3 NOH

    It's an arterial used to commute to a highway .. whereby none of the buildings seem to accept delivery trucks even when they have a driveway for it..
    So half blocked by delivery trucks at any given time of the day ... a city planning nightmare...

    Rob - thank you for posting the rebate info!

  • Score:

    Bill Morton: 0 (excess information and lists, call for support for local businesses is undermined by attempt to promote a struggling Facebook page whose most recent posts are more than a month old)

    Rob: 1 (with a single post manages to deflate the political agenda behind Bill's lists)

    SpamAlert: -1 (yelling from the bleachers only counts for negative points)

Handyman Needed

Looking for a handyman to do an assortment of jobs. Please answer with experience and rates.

  • Urban Handy Man.

    Nermin and sons 7735199900. They operate out of Edgewater and just completed some work for us (installed gate, hung picture over tall staircase, fixed siding). Not sure of rates but our quote was fair and the work was done quickly.

Another Place to Sit and Read

There is another place to sit and read at the Rogers Park Library. The Friends of the Rogers Park Library brought another set of upholstered bench and ottoman stools for the foyer outside the library's community room. These additions provide another place to sit down before going into one of the library's many events in our Community Room or a break from sitting in the reading rooms.

There is another place to sit and read at the Rogers Park Library. The Friends of the Rogers Park Library brought another set of upholstered bench and ottoman stools for the foyer outside the library's community room. These additions provide another place to sit down before going into one of the library's many events in our Community Room or a break from sitting in the reading rooms. This rounds out the year of Friends' expenditures that included helping our Super Librarians fight Dr. Brain Drain with buying additional materials for the library's Summer Learning Challenge, hosting Dave DaNaso's World of Reptiles, and Lucy Kalantari's SING ALONG! More photos of these events are in older posts on our Facebook page.
