The topic of high-density development has been quite controversial on the Northwest Side of Chicago. Planned Developments (PDs), although beneficial to the City of Chicago, do not always have the best interests of our neighborhoods in mind. A recent proposal for 297 residential units at 8535 W. Higgins Avenue brought tremendous feedback to my office. Serious concerns were raised with adding more density to an already dense area, especially when considering the extreme overcrowding at Dirksen Elementary School. Although the Chicago Plan Commission went against my wishes and supported the proposed Planned Development at 8535 W. Higgins, I have deferred the matter in Zoning Committee and am working with my colleagues to ensure this legislation does not pass. Working with the Department of Planning and Development, I discovered another Planned Development in this immediate area that needed to be addressed. PD#347, located at 8601 W. Bryn Mawr Avenue, was originally designated a “Commercial Only” Planned Development. In 2013, this PD was amended to allow the development of 397 residential units. This past July, I introduced an Ordinance to revert this PD back to its original commercial only status. I am happy to announce that with the support of the Department of Planning and Development, the Chicago Plan Commission and my colleagues at City Hall, Planned Development #347 has officially been reverted back to “Commercial Only” status. This legislation passed City Council on November 8, 2017 My priority as your Alderman is to always advocate for your interests above all else. It is an honor to represent the 41st Ward.

    Perhaps look into methods of alleviating overcrowding that exists in Chicago schools throughout the NW side. We've lived in the area for more than 20 years and this has been an ongoing problem since my sons were in elementary school.

  • Brickton Montessori School reviewed by a parent

    I cannot say enough great things about Brickton. The academic work is rigorous and the children are challenged. The school has great a strong sense of community by holding activities etc. Every child seems so happy in being a part of the school community.

Doctor recommendation

Looking for doctor, preferably out of Lutheran General who takes HMO. A Basic internist who has good bedside manner and knowledgeable. I am type 1 diabetic and my husband has high blood pressure. Any suggestions?

  • I would recommend Dr Benedict Ciszek at Presence Medical Group, 7447 West Talcott Av,. Suite 121, 773-990-3900. He was at LGH, but moved to Res and brought with him most of the doctors that were in his group there. My wife also has high blood pressure and I am in remission from leukemia.
