Venting

Speaking of parking issues in Rogers Park... an old gentleman across the street on North Shore has a designated handicap spot. When he returns from wherever, he parks in his spot. Then, as soon as an adjacent spot opens up he removes his placard from the window and moves his car there, taking up an extra space.

I fume every time I see this. What’s his deal? Does he just like an unobstructed view of the street? And, (yes, I know you can’t always tell), he doesn’t seem to have a disability.

It just apppears selfish and un-neighborly.

  • Lol yes i did..my bad

    Michael, you noticed. Specifically, the topic of this thread was handicapped parking spaces. I don't think that subject has been mentioned since early Monday.

Hello, neighbor. This thread was closed due to violations of the EveryBlock community guidelines, which intend to keep discussions informative, friendly and respectful.

Chicago gearing up for winter storm

The National Weather Service predicts 10 to 16 inches of snow will fall along Chicago’s north lakefront between now and Sunday morning.

The City of Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation already has activated some of its snow plow fleet so they are in position when snow starts to fall. Additional resources will be deployed as needed throughout the storm.

The National Weather Service predicts 10 to 16 inches of snow will fall along Chicago’s north lakefront between now and Sunday morning.

The City of Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation already has activated some of its snow plow fleet so they are in position when snow starts to fall. Additional resources will be deployed as needed throughout the storm.

Please note that plows clear the arterial streets continuously during any winter storm. Only after the snowfall stops do they move onto the side streets.

As we are expecting constant snowfall throughout tonight and tomorrow, the side streets will experience considerable snow accumulation for most of Friday. Do not expect to see any snow plows on the side streets until after the snow ceases to fall and the arterial streets are clear.

I would like to thank everyone who dutifully has cleared their sidewalk this winter. It is the responsibility of every resident or business/property owner to ensure that the sidewalk adjacent to their property is clear of snow. Please report unshoveled sidewalks to my office at ward49@cityofchicago.org or 773-338-5796.

    Living in a winter wonderland!!! How's the snow on the pier? We're a bit slammed on Eastlake as usual.

    Happy to see an Alderman not only doing their job but taking a proactive approach towards keeping the residents up to date during this snowstorm. Someone should tell that to the 50th ward. Seems they took a snow day and could care less that most of the residents of her ward cant even move their cars. The snow has been stopped for hours now and as of 5:30pm no one has come by to plow our street, which is highly travelled. I wish I could say this was a one time thing, but this was also the case Tuesday after snow fell Monday. Many of the streets running north to south between Kedsie and California bordered by Devon and Peterson were not plowed for the whole day. Seems today is no different. Makes me wonder why I'm paying 29 separate taxes to live in this city. Nonetheless, bravo to the Alderman of the 49th district, at least you showed up to work today.

No street lights on Juneway this week

Was reported many nights ago... When will this be fixed?

  • I don't think so...I've been told 7 business days regarding either, but I'm glad it's getting repaired :)

  • Live From Rogers Park

    The repair took two days. Request #18-00370807 was made on Jan. 20th and it now is closed on Jan 22nd. That's two days from the confirmed date of request to final repair and closure.

    2018 to be another rough year for Chicago taxpayers
    2017 was particularly hard on Chicago taxpayers, who were hit with a major state income tax hike, the latest in a series of property tax increases at City Hall and Chicago Public Schools, and a new city tax on water and sewer service.
