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.

TONIGHT: Ward Night at our Hermosa office, located at 4353 W. Armitage.
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
