How to get a referendum started?

Would anyone know where to go to get a referendum on the ballot? would it be the City or County? and is there a cost?
Thanks.

    I think we desperately need a 5 (felony) strikes and you're out, like California had. We have a revolving door of criminals and the judges don't seem to want to do their job. I look to other states like NYC and even downstate in those counties, they give very long sentences and high bail amounts.
    From what you guys have written, it looks like a referendum would take a very long time to get signatures, probably get started one year before. Or, form some type of community group that wants to discuss the crime problem in Chicago. I don't think we have a crime problem in Chicago, I think we have a criminal justice problem, and it starts with bail bonds court and the judges.

  • Can the public attend a City Council meeting, I think in my free time I would like to.

BOOKS

Does any organization or individual take books as a donation anymore? or should they just be thrown in the recycle bin for garbage collection?

Ravenswood and Irving Park

Hi all, the police and fire department just shut down Ravenswood north of Irving Park Rd (9:15pm Tuesday 11/14) anyone know why?

  • There was a fire in the uniform company in the 4100 block of Ravenswood.

  • I left 4043 Ravenswood at around 10 and saw four ambulances, two fire trucks, and the police car blocking Ravenswood at Irving. Its odd that something calling for that kind of response wasn't covered in the media.

    I wonder if any of the previous owners are reading this post? My building is in the process of a deconversion, the building listed about a week ago. Wondering how long the entire process took? Do they feel like it was a good deal? Did the board make any stipulation for owners to rent back to the owners if they weren't ready to move?

    This kind of situation is not always ideal if you've paid for and lived in your home for many years. I'm guessing this was maybe the case with some in this building. But if 75% of the ownership votes yes.......well then, you gotta roll with the punches, which can be hard for some of the elderly, disabled, etc, etc, even if your faced with a special assessment. I hope they got a good payout for the % of ownership they had in the building.

Be careful out there today - streets and sidewalks glaze ice

I just returned from being out. I was east of Ashland Ave. at about Fullerton. The side streets and sidewalks are glaze ice. Cars are fishtailing and skidding trying to stop. I tried to stop at one intersection and forget it --- my car just kept going and stopped about the middle of the intersection. It was that way all the way until Western, where it's not so bad, but is still wet and looks icy in places.

Bicyclists are having a very hard time of it. They skid if they try to slow down or stop, and then when they put their foot down they slip.

So far the main streets are just slushy and are safer.

CHICAGO - Residents of Chicago's Uptown neighborhood should be on guard after reports of three separate muggings that occurred in just 15 minutes Wednesday night.
The first robbery happened around 7:30 p.m. near West Buena and North Clarendon avenues. The victim said four males attacked him and ran east, toward Marine Drive.
Right after that, another man was reportedly beaten up and robbed in the 700-block of West Bittersweet Place.
Minutes later, the group reportedly beat a 50-year-old man to the ground, but he was not robbed. The attackers ran north on Clarendon. The victim was treated at a hospital.
There is surveillance video of one of the violent attacks. The robbers appear to be between 15-18 years old.
I have been in contact with the investigating officers of these incidents.
As I have recording cameras surrounding my estate on Hutchinson and Clarendon,
I will check to see if there is anything that can be helpful to police. I have reported this information to the police.

  • TS

    Thank you for getting involved and being vigilant. I'm not sure why this keeps happening, almost daily, but we see very little police presence in the area.

  • Thanks for your vigilance. My friend and his pregnant wife have a condo in that exact area, and I do worry about their safety going to/fro work, especially since it gets darker outside earlier.

  • Mute Mute Me

    " I'm not sure why this keeps happening"

    what has changed that would stop it from happening?

    "My friend and his pregnant wife have a condo in that exact area, and I do worry about their safety"

    im not sure if a pregnant woman would be seen as an easy target or just the opposite since if caught there are added charges.

    why would anyone want to raise children in that area? Hopefully they dont plan to stay long!

    Published today at 1:45 p.m. Good news for non-Far North Siders! Devon Avenue no longer has a monopoly on dosas.
