Church parking

Seems like this makes crossing Logan even more dangerous than usual when you can't see oncoming traffic at all.

  • It's insanity that they allow Churchgoers to openly flaunt the rules, which are spelled pretty simply on the signs. NO PARKING, TOW ZONE. But the Alderman need the church vote, so this nonsense happens, and unfortunately it will likely take somebody being killed before they change anything.

  • How do you feel about the trucks parked, sometime double parked, all day Sundays for the Farmer's Market?

  • Presumably the farmer's market gets a permit and the additional foot traffic might somewhat help with the speeding. This picture is Logan and Maplewood which is an uncontrolled intersection and people tend to be driving 3x the speed limit by the time they're here so zero visibility of the handful of pedestrians trying to cross here is bad. I would think the church wouldn't want their parishioners run over either.

Home repair scams

There are some guys driving around in a big shinny new bright blue pick up truck asking if you want any home repairs (foundations/cement work). One guy comes out of the truck and ask people who are outside working on their house. He comes up to you very nicely like he knows you. He was carrying a black folder we assume to write people estimates. We said no and they left. There is no name on the truck and the back plate on the truck has a darken plastic cover over it so you can not read the plate number. Male 30's dark hair buzz cut.

  • These guys tried this on us about a year ago. Same, exact, scam. Dude acts like he knows you...won't give you a business card...buddy stays in the truck. The black binder too. I politely told him no thanks numerous times...he was very persistent. The whole thing felt off to me. Definitely a scam.

  • so what's the scam part?

    what happens next?

Scam? Peoples Energy Bill??

I live at the Drake/Armitage Block and 3 people (one guy, 2 women) just came to my house asking to see a copy of my People's Gas energy bill. Told them no. They told me if they don't look at it my prices will increase sky rocking next month. Is this a new scam going around?

  • Ms. Wicker KidZ

    Don't do this even the people who call and say they can lower your electricity or gas bill it's not true. I fell for this scam and started seeing my utility bills strange big very big.
    What they do is they add there fake company onto your bill so now on top of your real bill you will now

    but I finally had them removed after along fight.
    These companies are fake

Yet another stray package....

Hello all,

I figured I'd give it a try. If you live in the vicinity of Maplewood and Logan, and received an unexpected package, about 12" x 12" x 4" (cardboard box) addressed to the last name Martin, could you message me? I know it's a long shot, but it was an eBay purchase and USPS shows it as having been delivered to the front door. (And if you're the person who stole it, I hope you have a 16mm film projector because otherwise it's junk to you...)

Thanks,

Jeff

    UPS sent me a message they had delivered my package. I looked all over, not there! I told LL Bean, which sent a replacement. It arrived. Then I got a message from LL Bean saying they had received my return. I asked, what return? Turns out UPS SAID they had delivered my package, but never did. Instead, it was somewhere in their warehouse or truck and they returned it. I wonder if something similar happened to you. I have had packaged delivered by UPS for years, I am friends with the driver even and this has never happened. Best of luck finding your package or at least learning its fate.

    It is likely stolen, but I have had at least one package that showed "delivered" on the USPS website that was in fact at the post office all along. When I asked how this could happen, blank stares. Could be a mixup, but I wonder if there are productivity targets to meet, not to mention the inconvenience of filling out a little card to leave for you....

    I have a T switch installed which allows discharge into the city sewer and the other the the pvc pipe that runs out to the alley buried under my fence. The switch is turned to summer pipe via the outside pipe now and in the fall it's turned to the city sewer so the water isn't freezing in the outside pipe. Whatever works to keep your lower level dry...do it. Also don't forget to divert those gutter downspouts away from the house and not down into the pipe that runs underneath your home.

The police took statements but no one saw what happened except after the collision they saw the driver stopped then take off. No driver or car discription was provider either. However, one witness said the man flew up and over loosing his shoes in the process.

It was sad and humbling watching someone die in front of you in the middle of the street.

Suspicious Activity

Hi all,

I think there is a man casing the homes on the 2900 block of Wisner. He rang my doorbell on Tuesday evening, but had left my porch by the time I came to the door. I saw him pacing in front of my house and talking on his phone. Yesterday he rang again. When I answered the door, he asked me if we have Comcast cable and internet. When I answered “yes,” he said “Then I can’t sell you anything” and left. I didn’t take a good look at him. He was an Asian man with medium to heavy build. He was wearing light colored clothes.

  • Bonnie L. Braverman Logan Square Lover

    If you are him again call the police. Don't answer your door unless you know who is behind the closed door. Be very careful and keep us posted.

  • You can also request 'suspicious activity' on you block by calling the police station and police cars will make extra trips down your block. (If you re close to a school, that helps in the call.) Do call because remember 'if it doesn't feel right, than is is mostly likely NOT right.." We watch out for each other..

Please be careful and keep your dogs and kids away from this building/area.

We spent all night at the emergency animal hospital because a homeowner chose to be thoughtless and place poison in such a public space.

    Thank you for being willing to help! Sometimes acclimating a cat to a new home can take a little time and needs to be done in a particular way when there are other resident cats. The new cat needs to be confined to a room where she can assess her new surroundings. Items, e.g., blankets, beds, between resident cats and new cat need to be introduced to the others. After some time and the new cat feels comfortable in "her" room, they can be allowed to see each other from a distance. New cat can be introduced to other parts of the house while the residents are confined, etc. It can be a slower than desired process but it can work out. I'm sharing in the hopes you weren't aware like may people and can then re-try the introduction. Thank you again for your kind-heartedness!

    Carla is right, it can often take a ton of patience in bringing in a new animal. I just adopted 2 kittens about 5 weeks ago and it hasn't been easy for me mainly because I, like other humans want things to happen faster than fur creatures actually need. I'm definitely learning patience. I did exactly as Carla says above. It took 10 days to get Sammy kitten to come out from under a dresser in his room. About another week before he was able to leave that room. At least another week before he found his favorite spots to sleep in the house and finally he is playing with the other cats...but, he still runs from me! I've wanted to give up a few dozen times but the two kittens are bonded and at least Sammy is now comfortable with his fur brothers. But gosh, it does take some time. Cats DO adjust in due time. Hoping you give Sparkie more time? Its so hard to find new homes considering there are so so many animals out there needing homes. Best of luck to you!

    It would be better if the dog COULD sit on the sidewalk, but he can't; he's all cramped up in a red Radio Flyer wagon. Either way, the guy is somewhat volatile, and the dog does not appear to be comfortable in the situations the guy puts him in. Add on to that that many people have stated he sometimes hits the dog, and something has to be done to help both of them, which is what I said the last time. So don't jump jump all over me.

  • Congratulations!!! How exciting this must be for you...I will definitely stop by one Saturday.

  • Chinhippy In Logan Square since '99

    Stopped by yesterday and REALLY enjoyed the pork / garlic dill / spicy mustard combination. The kraut was fantastic as well. Glad to have you in the neighborhood.

Armitage & Washtenaw Development

Anyone know what kind of project is taking place on the south side of Armitage between Fairfield and Washtenaw? I never knew what the structure was, perhaps an above ground garage for the adjacent condominiums?

  • I live on the block and according to notices we have received, they are constructing a 4 story condo building with retail on the ground floor. I believe it is slated to be 54' tall. It was previously a warehouse.

  • Michael McDonough Resident of BelCragin

    It used to be a warehouse for Goya Foods

  • This link will tell you more. It's from two years ago when they first announced the project. The owners hand was finally forced this last summer when a portion of the roof caved in from standing water. The city condemned the building. Given how slow things have been going I wouldn't assume they're going to start building the new structure right away.

Alderman Carlos Rosa introduced mega down zone of Milwaukee Ave (Kimball to Central Park) to City Council. Outcry forced belated "forgot to have transparent community meeting" Monday 10/30 6:30pm @ Hairpin Lofts (Milwaukee @ Kimball). Down zone to B2-1 is single family home residential development density. see Zoning chart. 2,500 sq ft of lot required to build each new dwelling unit with Rosa downzone. Some properties have existing zoning B or C dash 3 & higher. Rosa down zone to dash -1 lowest density devalues some long time owners tremendously. Rosa may not be around after 2019 electio; residents and community will be stuck with this for a long time. It's one thing to force developers who seek upzone to get Alderman and community approval, it's another to broad stroke Aldermanic prerogative mega down zone historic higher density business corridor near transit hub to uber low density to control all possible development. Some elderly Polish speaking affected long time property owners dont even know Rosa has done this.
