Doorbell Ringing Near Milwuakee and Kildare

Has anyone's doorbells been ringing from 1 am to for 4 am lately? My family and I are quite worried about this incident. There was no banging of doors, but the doorbells were just at it.

  • Has this happened more than once? Do you have a wireless doorbell? After I installed one I bought at Home Depot, my doorbell would ring but there’d be no one on my porch. I was perplexed for months until I noticed that every time this happened there was someone at the door on my neighbor’s porch across the street. Their wireless doorbell was apparently set to the same frequency so whenever someone pushed their doorbell, it rang at my house.

  • Same here with the wireless doorbell. We had to finally get rid of ours, after we realized it rang everytime there was someone at the door of the house across the street from us. Hope that is all it is for you. If not, I would be installing cameras.

    Community activist backing Laporte in bid to unseat Martwick
    by Glenn Minnis | Feb 21, 2018 (Excerpt)
    "North Side community leader and Chicago Police Lt. John Garrido has endorsed colleague Jeffrey Laporte in his Democratiic primary bid against state Rep. Robert Martwick (D-Chicago) in the 19th District."

    Lt. John Garrido also referred to the revised seven-story lower-density proposed version of the 5150 development as an "extreme density project at 5150 N. Northwest Highway,"

    When will Lt. John Garrido or others opposed to this development provide to us all publically the number of residential units in a seven story building that would qualify as an "acceptable" density for a Chicago neighborhood?

    How many veterans, disabled, and lower & moderate-income people does Lt. John Garrido and others want to deliberately EXCLUDE from being housed in housing that they can afford in Jefferson Park/45th Ward?

    How much longer should those on the CHA wait list have to wait to appease Lt. John Garrido or others before they can start paying 30% of their income for housing that they have been waiting for and qualified for?

    So that these new rent-paying tenants can afford to spend some of their other 70% of their income at local Jefferson Park-area stores, restaurants, barber shops, dry cleaners, etc?

Read All About It! FAiR Newsletter February 2018 is Out - Jet Noise and Health

Greetings My Neighbors,

Sharing this with you from the Fair Allocation in Runways (FAiR) Coalition. The lead story is about the impact of airplane noise on and in our lives.

JET NOISE AND HEALTH

Chicago and suburban residents under the O’Hare flight paths currently experience jet noise in the range of 65 - 110 decibels on a 24/7 basis. Those living immediately adjacent to the boundary of O’Hare, like the residents of Park Ridge, Bensenville, and the 41st Ward, experience noise levels close to 120 decibels (the sound at which aircraft take off).
