252 BUILDING VIOLATIONS?!

Did you see today's (5/26) list of building violations on EveryBlock Daily Digest?!

It looks like the city is running a massive building inspection sweep on the NW side. Anyone affected by of have info on this?

Neighbor's tree busting into our space...what are the rules?

Hi everyone. Hoping to get some help here.

Our neighbor has a tree in his backyard that has gotten really big. It's trunk is busting through the fence separating our property and the roots are cracking the concrete on our side. Also, the branches are hanging over way onto our side.

We aren't really close with our neighbor but we get along fine. We'd like to keep good relations but wanted to know what the rules are for this kind of situation. We don't want to ask either him of us to take on more than the required responsibility.

Ideally, the tree would be removed, but at least the trimming of all the branches on our side would be done.

Does anyone know the current laws on this? Who pays for these things? Any other suggestions? Thanks!

  • Is it possible to defer to natural authority and just adapt to the tree being there? I am a part owner of a gigantic catalpa tree that encroached on my yard and pavement so we just gave up trying to control it. We enjoy the beauty of the tree and the shade it provides. If you try to be the boss and cut the roots, it may become very sad and die and fall on your house for revenge.

  • Thanks all!

    There aren't any dead branches that I can see. The only way it could be a hazard is in that concrete on our walkway is not only cracking but raising and jutting up in spots so that someone could easily trip. (That wasn't clear in my first post)...

(That wasn't clear in my first post) Don't know if that counts as an actionable hazard though...

    There's no room to move the walkway, unfortunately, @NW-Sider or I would agree with your idea.

    I'll check with an arborist for sure. If you all have any recommendations, please pass them along. But knowing all this will make it easier to have the conversation with our neighbor.

Appliance Repair

Hello Neighbors - I'm looking for an honest and reliable company or repair person to fix some household appliances (refrigerator ice-maker and leaky washing machine). I appreciate all recommendations. The last folks I used seem to include a lot of extra charges. Thanks!

  • Hi Bellhome- we used Bobby at The Fix-it guy. 773) 974-8735 We like him... he fixed our Ice-maker and then a couple months later fixed our dishwasher, which had kind of dual problem and he fixed the second for free (just charged for parts). He's knowledgable and a nice guy.

  • Tomorrow is another day Happy resident of North Park Village

    Ditto for The Fix-it Guy! Has repaired several appliances. When he fixed a washer, said we would need a new one when it went. When he says he has to get a part and will call when he gets it, he does. Says when he will be there, and he is. He is a guy I can work with, ask questions of, and explains what the problem is.

Apartment Needed

Looking for one bedroom apartment for family relocating back to area. Price range $950-1050. They have a very friendly dog but it is a pit bull. Does anyone know or have a rental that does not have breed restrictions within this area? Prefer to have them close to where I am now. Looking for June 1 if possible.

  • They should recognize their dog as a St Francis Terrier mix as I did mine for vet registration, city registration, etc. and if people ask. I can't help with apts but it is getting better with breeds...Allstate and StateFarm used to be the only 2 ins. companies that would insure home owners, now plenty...(Besides, there is no such breed as a 'pit bull', who in WW1 was the hero dog and the 'nanny' dog in the '30's)
    They should consider renters ins.

Albany + Diversey corner store shut down?

I noticed a big orange CLOSED by the City of Chicago as of 5-22-2018 sign on the front door of Diversey Market at the corner of Albany and Diversey. This place was recently sold (I think?) and renovated within the past few weeks. Does anyone know why it has been shut down? The sign had no details, and the store was open on Monday.

Will just lead to you losing all of your packages and correspondence till the end of time, and no, the home office will not do anything about it. Just ignore it and continue on with life and if she brings it up again just tell her sweetly that you called USPS to see what the exact requirements were and they told you that you didn't have to do it, but that you understand her concerns and vaguely suggest you might plan to get around to it at some point...and then leave it be.

Who will send their child to a school in an area that has clearly been neglected. And not to digress, but Notre Dame High School for Girls, which was also in the 30th Ward closed because of Ald. Reboyras' policies as well. Higher taxation and higher crime don't translate into higher enrollment into these neighborhood schools. Watch St. Patrick High School to follow the same fate if Ariel Reboyras gets re-elected to four more years in 2019. ‪

Drywall repair and painting - recommendations?

Hi, neighbors! We sustained water damage from the heavy snow and a bad roof over the winter. We're just about done with our roof repairs. (Thanks to all the great recommendations on here, we went with Nyberg Exteriors and have been pleased with their service and professionalism.) Now that the roof is fixed, we need to get the interior drywall on a few ceilings and walls repaired/replaced and painted. Any recommendations from good, honest contractors (who are licensed and bonded)? We haven't been impressed with the ones recommended by our insurance company. Many thanks in advance!

Free sofa

We are putting our old sofa out into the alley, between Spaulding and Kimball north of Armitage.

The arms are a bit worn but still in decent shape.

Welles Park Dog Park?

Thinking Welles Park needs a dog park or signs can't let your dog off leash and someone to ticket. Every morning on baseball diamonds and today we have a party of 5 dogs off leash with owners chatting. Was hoping to cut through park but will go around.

  • I couldn't agree more Cubs. My dog is always on a leash and I deal with this at Winnemac park regularly. Dogs off leash approach my dog as I'm walking him and if they run up to us, he feels threatened. (His eyesight is not great anymore). I would much prefer there were a fence around the unofficial dog park that's formed there so we all can enjoy the park.

  • The police don't always coordinate with the Park District management. This problem has to be addressed with the park supervisor. If you don't know who that is, go to the Chicago Park District website and look it up or click on CONTACT US on the home page and leave your complaint there.
