Yesterday afternoon good-hearted constituents notified my staff that City of Chicago crews were throwing away the belongings of the people that reside underneath the Belmont and Kedzie underpass. My office did not authorize this action, nor were we notified by any City department that this action would take place. Since being made aware of this heartless action, my office has reached out to the Department of Streets and Sanitation, the Department of Family and Support Services, and the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless. As of this post, we have not received clear answers from any City department or official as to why this “clean up” occurred. I am deeply upset that amidst record-breaking low temperatures, people that are suffering from homelessness are having their belongings seized and tossed by City workers. The nationwide crisis of homelessness cannot be solved by throwing away belongings or clearing out encampments. As a City, we need a comprehensive plan to build affordable housing with support services for the poorest and most vulnerable Chicagoans. I will continue to work with the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless to advocate for city policies that address the root causes of homelessness.

    City workers accused of tossing out homeless people's belongings
    CHICAGO -- The City of Chicago is being accused of making a heartless attack on the homeless after a video showed crews clearing out a homeless camp along the Kennedy Expressway in the Avondale neighborhood.

    what i always wonder is: how many of the vagrants (anywhere) in the city have been convicted of sex crimes against adults or children? how many are supposed to, but don't, register their locations with police? how many are in violation of proximity restrictions in re children?

    no one knows....

    what i always wonder is: how many of the vagrants (anywhere) in the city have been convicted of sex crimes against adults or children? how many are supposed to, but don't, register their locations with police? how many are in violation of proximity restrictions in re children?

    no one knows. no one tracks.

    so yeah, you can say "the odds are they will never bother you."

    but would you allow your unescorted children to walk through a homeless encampment like that, say to/from school, the store, to/from a play date, etc.?

    Same could be said of any street in any neighborhood of Chicago Gil. There are registered and unregistered sex offenders everywhere.

    Participatory Budgeting in the 35th Ward
    First, we collected hundreds of ward infrastructure ideas from you and your neighbors. Then, our Participatory Budgeting Leadership Committee volunteers workshopped those ideas down to 21 infrastructure projects in three categories: alleys/curbs, pedestrian/traffic safety, and lighting. Now, it's time for you to vote on how you'd spend $1 million to improve our Ward's infrastructure for our 2017 cycle of participatory budgeting.

As 35th Ward Alderman, I am proud to have implemented a Community-Driven Zoning and Development (CDZD) process that empowers local residents to have a real say on the future of their community. When developers came to me with plans for 'Grace's Furniture building' at Milwaukee and Kedzie I referred them to our neighbor-led organizations that partner with my office for our community input process. For the past year, Logan Square community groups, including Logan Square Neighborhood Association (LSNA), Logan Square Chamber of Commerce, and Logan Square Preservation, have worked with the developer to inform the proposal. The developer is now finalizing the proposal with community input. Once the proposal is finalized, I will take that proposal to you - Ward residents - for a public meeting and community input. -Carlos Ramirez-Rosa

    Boutique hotel planned in Logan Square
    A boutique hotel with two restaurants could soon be coming to a Logan Square building that has been most known for its billboards. Chicago developers are in talks with 35 th Ward Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa and neighborhood groups as they seek zoning approval to bring a 44-room hotel to the former Grace's Furniture building at 2618 N.
