Riis Park Safety?

Hey Guys,

Just finally moved into the neighborhood and noticed the park. It looks beautiful, but overall is it a safe place to go walking/are there better times of the day to go?

I moved from the Portage Park neighborhood and frequented Portage Park itself so was just wondering how it compared to that.

Thanks in advance for any responses!

  • To tell you the truth
    nothing is safe today maybe someday thangs
    will change for now no and
    congratulations on your new place

  • Agree with SS above - generally speaking it’s a fun place to go in the summer while the sun it out. Great little Farmers Market on Sundays - has a dog park and huge swimming pool. There are some people, like anywhere, who get loud, messy and are a bit shady.

Battery replacement

Can’t beat A-Z on Harlem Avenue just South of Lawrence Ave on the West side of the street. Cash only, $5, very honest guy. He knows when the battery was replaced by him and if it’s too soon he replaces the battery for free. Will never go anywhere else again.

Public Safety Survey for Chicago's 16th District/Northwest Side Community

Dear Neighbor(s) of the 16th District of Chicago,

Leaders of the Eddy/Addison Block Club, West Portage Park Neighbors Association and the Portage Park Neighborhood Watch FB Group have organized this Public Safety survey.

Dear Neighbor(s) of the 16th District of Chicago,

Leaders of the Eddy/Addison Block Club, West Portage Park Neighbors Association and the Portage Park Neighborhood Watch FB Group have organized this Public Safety survey.

The purpose of this survey is to gather data from the Northwest Side Community. Data to show both our local and "downtown" elected officials that WE are watching what is happening to our community. For too long, it seemed that our that our concerns were being brushed aside. That is a response that can no longer be tolerated. To tackle these challenges we need to come TOGETHER as a community, as ONE group, ONE movement, to demand that our concerns be addressed. To help accomplish this, we invite ALL the elected stakeholders in the 16th District to take part in this discussion. We hope they will actively participate and take heed of the concerns of our various communities.

We are also asking you, members of this community, to commit to becoming involved in this movement. A plan moving forward will be based on the information collected here. Please be honest in your selections.

We know that together we can successfully regain our police that have been reassigned to other areas and aid our district in reducing crime in Chicago's largest, geographical, police district, district 16.

You might be wondering how this is different than the petition that began to circulate last night. The petition DEMANDS for our officers back. This survey however shows why we NEED them to be back.

Please feel free to forward this survey link to anyone who resides, owns a business or works anywhere in the 16th district. Results from this survey will be posted for the community to see after the survey link has closed.

This survey link will be up until 6pm, Sunday, February 18, 2018.

    Just a bump! We're close to 600 responses and there is word that a meeting between the aldermen in 16 and CPD coming in the next week. While no Aldermen have anything to do with the survey they have asked to be able to present the numbers at that upcoming meeting. Please take a few minutes to fill it out! A bonus of the survey is that at the end we will have a comprehensive list of all the great community organizations in working order here on the Northwest Side. All results will be public (sans names and emails) at the conclusion of the survey period.

Coyotes

They are here. If you have a small dog, don't leave them unattended. If you walk a big dog be prepared and have some form of defense. Since I believe it's a couple. Now those of you that will freak out, DON'T. I had them on video back on October. They are great,. Great rodent eliminators. God knows we need that here. This neighborhood is infested. Anywhere near Jeff Terminal is REALLY bad. Just be alert, and if you see...

They are here. If you have a small dog, don't leave them unattended. If you walk a big dog be prepared and have some form of defense. Since I believe it's a couple. Now those of you that will freak out, DON'T. I had them on video back on October. They are great,. Great rodent eliminators. God knows we need that here. This neighborhood is infested. Anywhere near Jeff Terminal is REALLY bad. Just be alert, and if you see one, make noise, yell at them. They will run the other way. Just an FYI. I watched them for over an hour or two around 6 pm Tonite in my alley. Working on my car. They don't want to be around people. So, respect them and rodent problem will be a thing of the past. They can hang in my alley all they want. I welcome them, we need them people, so don't get crazy. Just watch your small animals, as you should in the first place.

One look at why and how zoning has become a focus of property owners.

If this is not behind a pay wall, here's a think piece about how property owner opinions on their rights to have a say in community development evolved. While it doesn't set out to change anybody's opinion, having it in mind helps me understand why I hold certain value judgments. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/03/upshot/zoning-housing-property-rights-nimby-us.html?comments#permid=25419406

    How 'Not in My Backyard' Became 'Not in My Neighborhood'
    In Seattle, the neighbors don't want apartments for formerly homeless seniors nearby. In Los Angeles, they don't want more high-rises. In San Jose, Calif., they don't want tiny homes. In Phoenix, they don't want design that's not midcentury modern.
