Anyone know what is going up at the sight of the old White Castle at Archer and Kedzie? I saw construction starting this morning.

Alley light not fixed as of June 2017 despite calling 311 3x and requesting service on-line 2x

I pay hefty Chicago/Cook County taxes and every year they increase-and yet, I can't get the city to fix the alley light. Twice I have seen it reported on-line with the status "closed". When I call 311 to complain they don't want to hear anything other than the address and click-they disconnect. Is this the norm? Does it usually take this long? Let's face it, our neighborhood is no longer safe and a dark alley is asking for trouble.

  • I am inclined to believe that the complaint may not be real and is using the platform to create conversation. Provide an address for the light that is out. I'll personally do my best to contact the city and make them aware of the issue and have it repaired. I...

    I am inclined to believe that the complaint may not be real and is using the platform to create conversation. Provide an address for the light that is out. I'll personally do my best to contact the city and make them aware of the issue and have it repaired. I like to help whenever I can. I have lived in Chicago 35 years and have seen the good and bad. Our city is not perfect but with a little push to our reps, we have to help ourselves to get things done.

    Dude really!? My complaint on this forum was based on the fact I went through the proper channels several times and nothing was done. I asked for suggestions. The fact that your butthurt because I didn’t give you my address, doesn’t give you a right to negate or even question my use of this forum. Get over yourself-YOU are not employed by the City of Chicago nor do you represent the City of Chicago. No one has to answer to you in order to add credibility to their concerns. Initially, what I thought was a nice gesture on your part, now has me wondering. No thanks-after your BS comment, stay clear of the area I live in.

After Mena flashed the gang sign in the 4400 block of South Maplewood Avenue just after 3:30 p.m., Gonzalez, who had just left Kelly High School and was walking with three other teens, flashed an SD gang signal back, prompting the van to stop in a nearby alley.

Mena got back into the van and it sped off, prosecutors said. Gonzalez, of the 5700 block of South Damen Avenue in West Englewood, was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital, while the 14-year-old was taken in serious condition to Stroger.

Archer ave & Francisco Safety Island

What alderman, city planner, or person was responsible for the safety Island installed at the intersection of Archer ave & Francisco?. This will impede the flow of the traffic on Archer and will create a real nice mess of traffic and air pollution during rush hour and winter driving. Why weren't residents notified of this? Was a permit issued for this waste of taxpayers money?

    Who are they? Still want it out cause they did not advertise this well enough!

  • peter jachimiec over taxed homeowner

    2 years ago they had a hearing and they put it in now? How did they get the word out? In the Brighton Park Life news?
