Spend Where You Live

I am proposing to Bronzeville residents that for one day out of the week we spend in our community as not only a way to demonstrate our purchasing power, but to contribute to the growth of home buisnesses who thought enough of us to invest with us.

  • We need to start the conversation, reestablishing our community becomes more paramount each day. It seems our welcome has worn out and our dollars are not welcome in certain areas. The answer and only answer is get OUR community back.

  • We are being judged not by the content of our character but by the color of our skin, the time is long past that we readdress establishing our community for our own welfare and salvation and financial growth. Once we start funneling our dollars here in Bronzeville and other predominately African American businesses then we become less dependent and start the process of Wealth building right here.

Car Crashes Into Multiple Parked cars on S Indiana

A car crashed into multiple parked cars around 1 am last night on S Indiana, between 44th & 45th. I heard the sound of the crash but it took a few minutes to realize what had happened. 2 occupants of the car were arguing loudly. Police were called and showed up in 5 minutes. If you live on this block, you might want to check your car!

  • Annette Bada North Kenwood resident

    Thank you for being informative. I do not live over these but it is good to know that conscientious neighbors are in my area.

Free Trees!

Hi Neighbors,

In case you weren't aware, you can get FREE trees for your street from the city or working with a non-profit called Openlands. If it’s just one or a few trees then make a request through 311. If your street has open spots for 10+ trees then apply for a grant from Openlands. More details below.

For one or just a few trees, go through the city’s 311 online system (search tree planting) or call 311:

Hi Neighbors,

It takes time for requests to get fulfilled. My request took a couple of years before I got a call and something happened.

When I talked to one of the guys who runs tree planting for the city he said they plant trees based on demand. If no requests are made, no trees get planted. Be specific with your requests. For example, one tree at the curb outside XXXX S Calumet. The number of trees the city plants depends on the budget for the year. If the budget doesn’t cover the full list for the city (typical), then the list rolls over to the next year.

If you have space for 10+ trees then apply for a grant from Openlands:

https://openlands.org/trees/treeplanters-grants/

They will plant on city public land. Public land is considered to be the parkways between the curb and the sidewalk in front of residential houses, CPS school property, and some vacant lots. You need to organize a group of volunteers to help with planting. For example, neighbors, school group, church group, block club, etc.

Last Fall our group of neighbors planted 40 trees on two blocks in the neighborhood. It was a nice neighborhood event and a great way to fill in empty spots along the street that were missing trees.

Make the South Side even more beautiful!

Shots fired?

Did anyone else just hear a series of 3 shots fired about 5-10 minutes ago between 40th and 41st and Ellis?

    I am once again protesting Everyblock's increasing censorship of perfectly legal, positive posts. I posted a link to the tragic shooting of an unarmed Black AA man in Sacramento CA and noted that it looked like the police acted improperly. I linked to a very positive informational video from FlexYourRights.org providing very practical advice how to avoid and survive hostile police encounters. I also linked to the City Hall protest where the deceased brothers and others through temper tantrums and behaved in inappropriate ways that discredited their legitimate grievances. Why was this censored? This censorship seems to me the same as when Everyblock censored my comments noting that some Simeon High School students ransacked the local Wall Mart in the national walk out protests over gun violence. What happened to our 1st Amendment rights to just suggest that our young people should not riot, loot stores and should try to avoid hostile police encounters by acting in a calm and reasonable way? Do we want our young people to riot - engage in behavior that will lead to very dangerous encounters with police or armed citizens? What's going on?
