Cats Outside?

What is the policy on housecats being allowed loose outdoors? I frequently see one leaving an apartment near my house and it has been “aggressive-defensive” to my dog. Tonight was the most concerning because it sliced at my dogs face unexpectedly from underneath a car.

I dont know exactly know which apartment it comes from and dont plan to go knocking on doors asking who's cat it is. Im just curious if there is a cat “leash law” and who enforces it.

  • Local Yocal Logan Square resident since 2000

    I read about the wild cats (mountain lions) that once roamed the area freely, however due to humans moving into the now USA including Chicago. The local governments paid a bounty for each kill until they were gone. I know it's not helpful but wanted to provide a different perspective that maybe humans are far more dangerous than a house cat quietly and happily roaming outside with their caretaker's consent.

  • Humans certainly have the potential to be much more dangerous. That's why there is a very complex set of laws governing them with associated punishments.

    Housecats aren't nearly as dangerous but can be a nuisance or hurt other pets that are being kept on leashes as per the law. Hence...

    Housecats aren't nearly as dangerous but can be a nuisance or hurt other pets that are being kept on leashes as per the law. Hence the question / belief on my part that their should be a similar leash law for housecats.

    If a housecat is out unattended and slices my large, extremely friendly dog in the face, and he retaliates, causing significant harm...who is responsible, and for what?

Diagonal white lines on side of road? Am I allowed to park here?

Please see the attached picture. I don't think i've ever seen these road markings in the city before. What do these diagonal white lines mean? There were a few separated ones near the curb (this is the closest space to the intersection) I did not see any tow zone signs or yellow marked curb or anything else to indicate it is not a valid area for parking. I could not really find any information about these markings except for that they are sometimes used near handicap parking, however I did not see any handicap parking signs on the street either. Anyone have any idea?

  • I think the painted line means something like "this is not the roadway."

    If it's not the roadway (or public way or highway, etc.) then there's no right to put a vehicle on it.

    I couldn't find a specific ordinance/statute/code to cite in case someone parked over such painted diagonal markings... but since the solid line nearest and along the street probably marks the "curb line," the violation would probably be for parking on a sidewalk or parkway or public property or something like that.

  • By the way, I don't see any statutes in the Chicago municipal code that could be violated because of curb paint... or any where you could use "lack of curb paint" as a defense.

    Unlike other areas of the country, curb paint doesn't seem to mean anything here... with regards to city parking violations, anyway.

Water main replacement

Has anyone replaced their ancient lead water main under concrete using a trenchless/directional drilling method? I have a new box/meter in the front and need about 35' feet of new copper line laid under concrete. I got three quotes and they are all about $9000. Does that seem the going rate?

ATM Skimmer scams run rampant - even at bank ATMs

Word to the wise: No matter where the card reader is located - banks, stores, gas station pumps - ALWAYS yank on it before inserting your cards.

This story is about Lakeview, but it could just as easily be about Logan Square or anywhere.

    Another ATM Skimmer Found In Lakeview; At Least A Dozen Devices Recovered On North Side Since May 1
    Chicago cops recovered another ATM skimming device in Lakeview on Sunday afternoon. It's the second data-sucking contraption found on cash machines in the area since May 29. At least a dozen ATM skimmers have been found on the North Side since May 1st, according to police data.

    Some time back, I grabbed a bite at a cafe near Loyola's downtown campus and paid by cc. They still had the old carbons and when I asked for mine, the server said they were already in the trash. Two weeks later, I get the statement and there's just of $400 worth in two large purchases I didn't make (@Walgreen's and Sportmart). Fortunately, the cc was with my primary bank which I visited directly and they removed the charges without any fuss; didn't hurt that they could see by my account history that I'd NEVER made a cc purchase at either retailer.

There were 0 bike violations. April there were 750 car violations, 0 bikes exceeding my threshold. No cars actually stop.

    Getting hit by a car is around 100 times worse than a bike. It's false to equate the two like so many here have. Car drivers must burden 100% of responsibility. If you can't drive a car and avoid idiot bikers and pedestrians we would all be safer if you stuck to Uber.

It sounds like the car in question, did, in fact follow the rules by stopping and giving way to the bicyclist...albeit with unnecessary honking and using the middle finger. On the contrary, the bicyclist in this example, Bart, did not appear to follow the rules and could have been seriously hurt as a result of his actions. Bart appears to be grossly misguided and misinformed about how to properly ride his bicycle.

    Here is the short version: Minor, drunk, stolen car. It was around 4:30pm and I was watching TV when I heard this loud BOOOOM. I seriously thought the house next door blew up. So I ran outside and saw the car in the yard. Two girls jumped out of the car and ran. Then one of them came back to get the keys. I tried to call the cops, get a picture of them and not loose my calm. Cops showed up, interviewed everyone (at this point the entire neighborhood is on my corner). Then another neighbor showed up and was like " I saw them walking in the alley". So the cops looked at me and were like "you are coming with us to identify them....". So I experienced my first chase. In a police car. Nope, this was never on my bucket list. We finally caught the driver in an alley 3 streets over. By that time 6 cop cars showed up for back up. She was a minor and drunk. All this time I tried to get ahold of my landlords but neither of them answered their phone. Anyhow, the landlord came home right when the tow truck showed up (6pm).

    Good thing no one was in the yard or on the sidewalk. This could have ended VERY bad

  • Looked and sounds like a episode of 'Chicago PD"...wow....

Any recommendations for tree service?

The city recently cut down the ash tree in front of our house because of ash borer infestation. The tree still looked healthy but I’m no arborist.

Can anyone recommend a tree service to treat our two remaining ash trees?

I spoke with the Bureau of Forestry and was assured that they would not remove these trees if they were recently treated.

  • If the trees are on the parkway - the city does treat them - but it seems it does not help - the city tries to keep them up as long as they are not dangerous....sooner or later they take them down - and replace them later in the year......

Is it legal for a scooter with an out of state plate to park on a permit only street?

I have a friend visiting who will be bringing a scooter here. i know you can park scooters on permit only streets without a zone sticker with an IL plate, but does the same apply to out of state plates?

Thanks!

  • You can only park a scoot in permit parking if you have a city of Chicago patking tag. It's a little circle that you put on license plate. City clerk sells them $40 I think

  • The "little circle" is the equivalent of the city sticker on the windshield of a car. It has nothing to do with parking. Motorcycles are exempt from zoned parking restrictions.

Too bad...

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/soccer/ct-world-cup-2026-20180613-story.html

Too bad the city will overspend on tax incentives to attract companies but won't pay to bring some worldwide focus...

    U.S., Mexico and Canada win joint bid for 2026 World Cup; Chicago won't be a host site
    The World Cup is returning to the United States, and this time, Mexico and Canada are along for the wild ride. Chicago, however, will not be among the host cities. A North American joint bid won the rights Wednesday to host the 2026 edition of the celebrated soccer tournament, defeating Morocco and bouncing back from an unfathomable U.S.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com
  • That is true in hosting an entire event...hosting a game or two wouldn't have nearly the same scale of issues.

  • That is also more true when you have to create infrastructure. Chicago would not be creating any transportation or venue infrastructure. If anything it might speed along some backlogged transportation projects.

    Sure it'd be overcrowded for a week or so...but I think it'd be worth the visibility and potential investment.

    Catawba is the "Totem Pole tree" named by first nation indians living within species native range. And original name mistranslated by early arriving europeans. My six year old Catalpas donated to Elmwood Park after celebrating Villages Centennial, were germinated from 125 old historic specimen standing in Mills and Sons Circle park. And have produced flowers for first time in 2018. Over past few years I have had experience managing against aphid populations which after excreting sticky sap, causing sooty mold problem on leaves. I had success using a foliar applied Miticide control product, after IPM management introduction of Lady bugs failed to keep overwhelming aphid populations in check. One main cause of aphid problems on more mature trees regardless of species, is needless applications of nitrogen rich fertilizers which actually attract browsers. Fertilizers should never be applied to healthy trees, or especially trees already in decline, unless suffering from lack of soil minerals or mineral uptake issues. Which forces unhealthy tree to use up much of its precious built up resources. Trees going into dormancy earlier than true fall do so, to make sure enough stored resources remaining to wake up next spring.

    It is yet unknown what possible lifespan of a Chicago region planted catalpa is, since oldest examples continue to live on presently past age 155. After 1910's, Catalpa was no longer a popular selection to plant. So most we see today are from age 110-145. And commonly 6-14 years older than house standing next to, if original owners purchased from Nursery back then. I theorize that as a "Heritage class" tree species, representing future generations precious living connections back to early residents and neighborhood founders who planted them.

  • Catalpa is in same lifespan group as Red Oak, Honey Locust, Hackberry, and Cottonwood which have proven to live 185 years at best. Compared to Heritage class Green Ash & American Elm that reach maturity from 180-220, having 300 year lifespan. And human planted White Ash, White, Burr & English...

    Catalpa is in same lifespan group as Red Oak, Honey Locust, Hackberry, and Cottonwood which have proven to live 185 years at best. Compared to Heritage class Green Ash & American Elm that reach maturity from 180-220, having 300 year lifespan. And human planted White Ash, White, Burr & English Oak maturing from 350-450, having 600 year lifespans. Even after a catalpas inner core of no longer functional sapwood and heartwood begins rotting out, species can continue to safely stand by regrowing new tubes of buttress root tissue from base of tree to keep upper crown alive.

    Humboltwriter was correct with technical info he supplied regarding several Catalpa topics. Such as late leaf production and early June flowering catalpa. I found that slow release fertilizer stakes are not a worthy product, and tree care industry is moving away from regular fertilization of specimen trees. And Catalpa is such a superior harsh urban environment survivor, it would be difficult to improve living conditions. Except for preventing unnecessary construction damage, grade change etc.

    Retail leasing comes with many stipulations, this is why you must have a qualified agent to represent you. It's not like leasing an apartment, you need representation and someone qualified to review your lease IN DETAIL with you before you sign anything. There are clauses which limit what you can sell in some cases, what kinds of uses may be allowed in your spaces or what other spaces the LL may lease to in the future. Lots of little things to consider so it's not as simple as just finding a nice space. Do your homework, then do your due diligence, and hopefully find a great space to open a thriving business.
