Obama-Land Fiasco Worsens - Chicago Taxpayers Now Face $224 Million Bill

Obama-Land Fiasco Worsens - Chicago Taxpayers Now Face $224 Million Bill
Authored by Mark Glennon via Wirepoints.com, The taxpayer bill for the Obama Center to be built on Chicago's Southside now appears to be $224 million, not $172 million as initially reported, and it's certainly not privately funded as initially promised.

Ahead of this week's public meeting on The Po...

Ahead of this week's public meeting on The Point, I wanted to answer some frequently asked questions my office has received about the proposal. Below is a bullet-pointed list of what the developers will present. - 50,000 square feet of ground-floor retail along Milwaukee Ave. and Irving Park Rd. - Aldi is committed as the anchor to the retail space - 265 residential, senior living units: 86 independent, 141 assisted, and 38 memory care - 237 parking spaces: 165 covered and 72 open air - Two public plazas along Milwaukee Ave. - A pedestrian connection between Milwaukee and Irving Park The plan adheres to the Six Corners Master Plan by activating underutilized land for private and public use. Retail and residential mixed-use development is a cornerstone of the redevelopment goals within the plan. I hope you will join me on Thursday, June 21, at 6:30 pm at Filament Theatre, 4041 N. Milwaukee, to learn more.

    T&C, what I find so humorous about this situation is that when the first developer showed his plans for retail, which then got watered down to a Ross store and maybe an Aldi, everyone was so excited saying that it was just what 6 corners needed. Well, we all know what happened there, and now this proposal is on the board with senior housing and an Aldi and once again, here we are with folks saying it's just what 6 corners needs.

    I guess 6 corners needs anything that someone is willing to put there.

Swastikas at Kilbourn Park

Hello,

It deeply saddens to me to notify everyone that on Sunday June 17 a number of swastika, white nationalist, anti refugee, and generally hateful stickers with razor blades hidden underneath were found at and around Kilbourn Park.

Hello,

It deeply saddens to me to notify everyone that on Sunday June 17 a number of swastika, white nationalist, anti refugee, and generally hateful stickers with razor blades hidden underneath were found at and around Kilbourn Park.

Majority of these were removed by community members and myself in the presence of police officers. Over TEN razor blades were located under the stickers, so that should anyone attempt to remove these stickers, the potential for harm was present. These were within the playground perimeter as well.

Police have asked that if more stickers of this nature are found to please call Area North headquarters at (312) 744-8263 with the location of the stickers and state that you are calling to report more stickers of a hateful nature to add to the already existing report from Kilbourn park on 6/17/18.

At this time they requested that they not be removed so that an officer may come evidence the sticker and potentially collect prints.

Currently, there are still stickers within the park that have not been removed and I intend to call the authorities today to inquire why they have not been taken down. Additionally, municipal stop signs at Kenneth and Roscoe still have stickers as well as a pedestrian yield sign at 3342 Kostner.

Thank you for your attention and awareness of this event.

Alderman Arena will hold a community meeting on former bank site at Six Corners at 6:30 pm Thursday, June 21, at the Filament Theater, 4041 N Milwaukee Ave. The planned 10-story building has been in the works for at least a year and most of the 265 units would be for assisted living, including memory care. http://nadignewspapers.com/2018/06/17/photo-gives-a-glimpse-into-the-history-of-the-parcel-targeted-for-senior-living-at-six-corners/

  • Resident Live in the 45th

    I am a little confused. Are the plans for a retail space no longer moving forward and this housing plan is taking its place, or are both plans moving forward and will be done in conjunction?

  • Resident, it looks like it'll be 10 stories, 9 of which will be senior housing, and the ground floor will be Aldi (so they say) and maybe a few other retail tenants. Knowing how well they've filled the other retail space in the area (it's desolate at 6 corners), I doubt there'll be anything more than an Aldi's there.

Monarch Butterflies need "Common Milkweed"

For anyone interested in helping restore Monarchs by planting milkweed; not all milkweed offers full life-cycle Monarch support (not all gardeners/naturalists know the distinction). All types of milkweed will attract pollinators/butterflies.
But only Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) supports the full Monarch lifecycle; as the necessary food source for caterpillars of the Monarch butterfly that feast on its leaves.

Never saw the visitor to our garden, but we found its caterpillars! (pic)

  • Really, I think the firefly population has recovered somewhat from the 1970's when they had kids catching them, putting them in sandwich bags, freezing them, then sending them or taking them to someplace where scientists were studying them.

    Really, I think the firefly population has recovered somewhat from the 1970's when they had kids catching them, putting them in sandwich bags, freezing them, then sending them or taking them to someplace where scientists were studying them. When I was about 9 or 10 EVERY kid in our neighborhood wanted to "help scientists" and we decimated the population of fireflies in the area. After those years you'd see maybe 10 or 20 fireflies at dusk. I suspect it was pretty much the same all through the region.

    Anyway, last summer I went outside right at dusk and the yard was blinking with literally thousands of fireflies. So beautiful. Made my heart glad.

    I never saw flocks of monarchs, but as a kid saw many, and the caterpillars too, and many other kinds of butterflies that I don't see anymore. Now I might see one or two monarchs a season, and hardly any other kind of butterfly except those little white ones. Makes me sad.

    Don't know a thing about the junebug... :-)

  • In addition to Common Milkweed for Monarchs, there are other butterfly-species-specific plantings that help support other pollinators. Wild blue lupine is the only food for the 'Karner Blue' butterfly's caterpillar. Wild blue lupine is native and quite attractive. And a number of common full-sun plants serve as host for Eastern...

Wild blue lupine is the only food for the 'Karner Blue' butterfly's caterpillar. Wild blue lupine is native and quite attractive. And a number of common full-sun plants serve as host for Eastern Swallowtail butterflies -- the Fennel family (finocchio is cool.

Suspected gang member shot early Friday in the 16th District

A suspected gang member was shot in his right bicep at 2 a.m. Friday, June 8, while he was walking in the 5000 block of West Newport Avenue, according to 16th (Jefferson Park) District police.
The man reported that 4 gunshots were fired from a passing vehicle, which was described as an older model, dark-colored Ford Taurus, according to police.
He also told officers that he ran when the shots started and that he was a block away when he noticed his wound, police said.

  • Heard on Ch2 news that nearly 20 shooting injuries over this past wknd involved gang-related 'victims' who are NOT cooperating with police investigations.
    Great people to have around, surely (sarc).

I don't know precisely where this rooster is located, but it's pretty much driving me crazy just as would the sound of an incessantly barking dog. I have no problem with people owning roosters or chickens in the city, but there needs to be some consideration for the noise, and I believe there are humane and inexpensive ways to reduce the noise a rooster is able to make.

I don't want to call the police, because they have much more important things to be dealing with than a silly rooster, but has anyone else been bothered by this? I'd be more than happy to help it's owner make a rooster collar for it, if they were willing.

Any advice or guidance for dealing with something like this would be appreciated.

  • So the rooster isnt crowing

    Its screaming for help

  • CL

    I believe the ordinance is that an officer has to witness the noise or you have to collect signatures from three neighbors confirming the nuisance. I can’t imagine getting three signatures would be a problem, I just have no idea what to do with them. I guess take them and file a report with the police?

Wouldn't this be great for the Point site until something gets developed.

Instead of leaving a vacant parcel of land which they demolished buildings on to make way for the Equinox Hotel, Midwest Related set up a pop up market with shipping containers until they are able to start construction. This is what responsible developers do. HINT HINT Clark Street. Granted Clark Street would have to fill in that hole!

Has Anyone Else Seen or Found any Dead Bats?

I came across either a dead of dying small grayish brown bat on the 4300 block of Lavergne I called 311, and was in formed that Animal Control would be immediately dispatched. The operator said they consider bats a priority because they can carry rabies.

A few years back, the area received a post card in the mail from a government agency (CACC?) that a bat in the neighborhood had tested positive for rabies.

  • Sam

    I have never found a dead bat, but I see them flying every day. There’s a bat colony on the rooftop of a building by me. They come come out around 7pm and just fly in circles.
