Public Support offices problems of misconduct

I have been pursuing the use of public property for the development of art projects that benefit the public first of which includes students. For years, I have encountered noncompliance with misleading responses with delays to interfere and discourage accessing the use of the public supported property. I don't wait on opportunities I create them using public property.

The involved public supported property includes Metra-Gresham Station, Chicago Park District- all regions, Chicago Cultural Center-Libraries and streaming throughout, CTA stations throughout, Millennium Park-Cloud Gate, Public Building Commission-Daley Plaza, Chicago Public Schools and Aldermen that are a major part of the neglect and push their agenda at the expense of the public. .

They've capitalize on the continued absence of public resources within some communities that are hurting and hindering the communities access to required public services of which is illegal. They violate our constitutional and civil rights and we need to make our voices heard.. Stand Up For Your Rights!!.

The public needs to be make sure through direct involvement that all involved are held accountable for the neglect that is a problem. Close Mouths Don't Get Fed!!

We are paying for everything and it is time we serve ourselves through demands when the public services are not accommodated as required.

  • The Chicago Art project owns 500 pieces exhibited in150 public places including police station, downtown streets,Jackson Park , Millenium Park. Maybe you re just not contacting the right people. Good luck

    I have been creating art work for more than 20 years. The current city supported public art projects that are being created in the 50 ward. Harold Washington first created that art project and it was abandon after he died . The city reactivated the project within the last few years.

    There are so many opportunities that have been lost. My projects focus on creating opportunities that focus on art work by children and within communities. .I also create street art projects.

Garage Break-ins

Good Morning Neighbors. Be on the look out for 2 gentlemen breaking in garages in the 8800 block of South Union Ave area. They were observed on Friday breaking in a neighbors garage and thank goodness the next door neighbor stopped them. But unfortunately they returned the next day.

If you see anything report it. We must not let these criminals tamper with our property and take items that do not belong to them.

Thank you

Shooting at 87th & Wood

My fiancée and I just bought a house on Wood in April; we heard the shooting today while working on the lawn. We were wondering how often shootings occur on this block. We love our new home and we look forward to getting to know our neighbors and the community — those shots were scary though! Want to help out however we can; also curious for any news regarding this particular incident. Thanks

  • I hope you called 911. Be sure to call 911 so they can be aware of things if this nature. There is an orgazatuib called West Beverly they are engaged in keeping the area safe, property being maintained. I do not know have their address, but call your alderman office and ask if they have their number. The area you live in is a quite area. Congratulations

  • Ian Westerfer Recently moved to the neighborhood

    Thanks for the info! I did call 911 right away; lots of folks must have been calling cause it took a minute for them to answer. Will contact alderman's office too. Thank you!
