Redesigned Old Town apartment project to be discussed at community meeting

First revealed in late 2016 as a 14-story building containing 365 rental apartments, the mixed-use project at the corner of North and Larrabee was scaled back to 10 stories and 293 units. It was subsequently rejected in September due to lingering concerns over parking, traffic, and density.

The presentation is scheduled for Thursday, January 11th at 7:00 p.m. at the Latin School of Chicago at 59 W. North Avenue. The same project is also listed on the busy January draft agenda of the Chicago Plan Commission. The group is set to meet one week later on January 18th.

Polk, of the 2700 Block of West Harrison Street in Lawndale, was repeatedly advised not to speak in court but insisted on telling Judge Clancy that Brown “did do that” and that he was “willing to help the state.”

Calling on Chicago to provide 2200K PC AMBER LED Streetlight Test Block

Chicago is in the process, like many cities around the world, of replacing our streetlights with blue-rich white LED's (BRWL's). At 3000K these lights are at the absolute highest end of what the AMA has deemed safe. Blue spectrum light at night (270,000 streetlights in Chicago) will affect the health and circadian rhythms of people, plants and animals by creating 24 hours of daylight.

Chicago is in the process, like many cities around the world, of replacing our streetlights with blue-rich white LED's (BRWL's). At 3000K these lights are at the absolute highest end of what the AMA has deemed safe. Blue spectrum light at night (270,000 streetlights in Chicago) will affect the health and circadian rhythms of people, plants and animals by creating 24 hours of daylight. IMHO, these lights are not only unsafe they are ugly and painful to look at, just like the new LED headlights...too bright and too glaring. They will make our city look like the frozen food aisle at Aldi, or at best, a Night Game. Chicago owes it to its tax payers, who will shell out $700 per light, to at least set up one test street with 2200K PC Amber LED's. If you would like to see such a test street, please let your Aldermen know. This is a four year roll out and changes can be made before it’s too late. If you would like to view or join our FB Group, please feel welcome. Thank you.

    Vicki, does there happen to be a website as well? I'm not a FBer. Thanks and happy holidays!
    PS: I'm visiting out of town for the holidays and this same issue and ire over the nasty bright blue lights came up (completely unsolicited by me). People far and wide dislike these things for aesthetic reasons, if nothing else!
