  • This evening, six cops cars were at the gang-banger house on the block. Someone was arrested, not sure if this is related to the shooting. I asked the cops what was going on and if it was related to the shooting a few weeks ago, but the cop said they couldn't comment.

  • It's good to see that some action is being taken. I hope the get the right people/ person and not the wrong.

Zoning Question

Trying to make an existing garage into a livable space, for example a home office? Zoning did not approve. They want a change in the scope of work. Anyone has done this? How did you accomplish it? What does Zoning want? What kind of accessory usage would they approve?

  • IMHO, it's probably not that you described the space as an office- on your permit did you add plumbing for an office bathroom? If you just want to insulate, drywall, and put in a floor covering, they may not say anything.

    when you add plumbing, they think you are going to add a second living space ( or dwelling unit) which they won't allow due to density of people, parking, etc.

  • N. McNeal Interested in Lincoln Square and nearby areas

    No plumbing because I was trying to avoid the issue you mention. Reviewer said we needed to “change the scope of work”. He hasn’t responded to my questions so I am trying to see if someone else has done something like this and how they did it.

    You still need to call it something if you are insulating...drywalling, no? Any suggestions?

  • Actually, if I was only insulating and drywalling, I would not get a permit.

    If you are using a contractor that wants a permit pulled, he/she should know how to proceed with this question.

    Or if you are using an architect or expeditor, they also should know how to proceed.

    I also saw online a suggestion to go to your aldermans office , make a donation, and inquire about your permit. sounds about right...….

Move to Hermosa?

Hi!

We are thinking of moving to the area (near Armitage and Cicero). Would you recommend the neighborhood? Look elsewhere? Just trying to see what the residents think about the safety and crime around there. Thanks!

  • Iain McFarlin Neighborhood bar manager

    Lee, I would say the neighborhoods are very similar. Many families are moving to Hermosa as they get priced out of Humboldt. The area has always been predominantly hispanic and very family oriented. We've gotten some nicer/new stores I.E. Cermak Fresh Market & Binney's on Pulaski. I live around armitage...

    Lee, I would say the neighborhoods are very similar. Many families are moving to Hermosa as they get priced out of Humboldt. The area has always been predominantly hispanic and very family oriented. We've gotten some nicer/new stores I.E. Cermak Fresh Market & Binney's on Pulaski. I live around armitage and karlov and there are few times I have felt unsafe. There are the occasional gunshots/gang activity.

    I've found the area where you are looking to be more family oriented and quiet then my part of hermosa.

    There is an active neighborhood association and group on facebook as well. They have a closed group "forum" for neighbors to communicate.

  • Chris Renter in Hermosa

    Hi Lee,

    Generally the closer to Fullerton the better it gets. I live right off Fullerton And Pulaski, have heard some gunshots but mostly where im at its very safe.
