I've been having a problem with my neighbor. He uses his truck to save parking for other of his 3 cars. He has managed to own 3 spots in front of the fire hydrant for more than 6 months now. Its a family of 4 with 4 cars. The truck is only used to save parking for 3 spots right in front of their apartment building. He uses the truck and another car to save a spot for the third...
I've been having a problem with my neighbor. He uses his truck to save parking for other of his 3 cars. He has managed to own 3 spots in front of the fire hydrant for more than 6 months now. Its a family of 4 with 4 cars. The truck is only used to save parking for 3 spots right in front of their apartment building. He uses the truck and another car to save a spot for the third and keep alternating through out the week. Every morning is the same routine. One of the 3rd car pulls out and the truck is moved forward with another car moved backward saving a spot in the middle. Leaving the 4th car to be used throughout the day. What to do? its driving me crazy!

Hello, I'm working on a high school project about affordable housing and gentrification in the Logan Square neighborhood.
If you're a renter/home owner or a member of an organization that is concerned about this issue, would you please answer a few questions?(Please identify which when responding)
Would please define gentrification briefly in your own words?
What kind of inequity is in play with regard to this issue (racial/economic/other)?
Are the existing conditions sustainable?
What would be a solution and how would success be measured?

Looking for a trustworthy handyman to do small jobs on a house in Bucktown. Caulking, CO2 detector replacement, sump pump battery - a lot of little things like that here and there. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Hi all, lost my keys somewhere on wrightwood near bernard. Has a honda key and red caribiner. Thanks for your time.
I happened upon a lost key by the first tree north of Dickens, west of Hoyne. I left it visible on the tree root. It had ice on it so it was probably dropped awhile ago, maybe last night. It was difficult to see making it easy to miss if someone backtracked for it. Hopefully whoever lost this didn't get locked out in the cold.
