  • joanie 25 year resident of JP

    The 39th Ward is the only one that I know of that is scheduled in the near future. June 16th, 9:00 to noon, at Colleti's, 5707 N. Central.

    The 45th Ward just had an event about a week ago. I haven't read anything about any upcoming shredding events in the 38th Ward.

5150 N Northwest Hwy proposal left off state housing authority agenda

Preliminary agenda for state board meeting on low-income housing tax credits does not include proposal for 5150 N Northwest Hwy. Barring any late changes to the agenda, it is not clear what impact the lack of tax credits would have on the feasibility of the housing proposal for this year. The developer, Full Circle Communities, could not be reached for comment. Tax credits are often required for affordable housing developments. One local housing group has questioned the neutrality of the state board. http://nadignewspapers.com/2018/05/15/5150-project-not-on-preliminary-agenda-for-low-income-housing-tax-credits/

    5150 project not on preliminary agenda for low-income housing tax credits - Nadig Newspapers - Northwest Side Local Newspapers
    by BRIAN NADIG The proposed 75-unit housing development at 5150 N. Northwest Hwy. is not among the 26 projects which the Illinois Housing Development Authority plans to approve for low-income housing tax credits, according to a tentative agenda for the authority's May 18 meeting.

    Daniel D-You are correct about our 'great alderman'. He is truly a politician at work and I think there is something behind this whole 5150 project to get all of these low income section 8 applicants into this building. There has to be some kind of kick back of some sort. These guys cannot ever be trusted b/c they could care less about public opinion. It will always be all about the $$$$ with these guys in power. They are really expert at creating smoke screens. I have to sometimes wonder how these guys sleep at night?? Probably better than the rest of us honest folks IMHO. Just my general opinion...

I came home today, and my entire apartment smells like I had a fire. Everything smells of smoke, including my new furniture, from the bedroom to the front room. Even the clothes in my closet.

This had got to be a Chicago thing. Every other place I've lived, local ordinance banned grilling on apartment balconies, period. I can barely stand to sit in my apartment, that I pay rent for, with all the smoke.

    I'm in the process of doing this right now, probably much to my neighbor's dismay since I need to kill all the grass first and that's a rather ugly process. We have a city tree planted there already but it was not planted deep enough and the roots are all over the place making it near impossible to mow. And why not have something that requires little to no maintenance? The other day some city workers came to futz with our streetlight and trampled over part of my grass-killing bonanza, but I figure once I plant perennials and natives they will pop back up or be able to be replanted pretty easily. Unless they have to tear up the whole thing, in which case get yourself on some neighborhood facebook groups or freecycle and there are always people giving away plants for free.

    K Seasay, that parkway tree with the shallow root spread sounds typical of what happens when they are planted as saplings and don't get heavily watered for the first few weeks. For parkway saplings, if there's no treegator, just set a watering hose inside their mulch ring on a steady light flow for a couple hours every evening to develop a deep tap root system. At least for a few weeks. We did that and our trees developed twice as full and sturdy as others the City installed that didn't get watered.

Tree Trim vs. Removal

I am noticing some of the orange no parking signs from Dept of Forestry. They are sporadic though, not on a full block like I have seen before. Is there anyway to determine if a tree is slated for removal vs pruning? I see one with a blue tag on it (think it means its been treated for a disease), but no markings/tags on the other trees, yet they have the orange signs on them also. Thanks for any info you can provide.

  • @scott concertman, I have my parkway Ash treated every few years by a local tree company. It's in great shape. How do I get it on the "list" to not be cut down? The company that treats the tree puts on a new / current tag every time they treat it. I'm assuming they're pulling a permit because they are well known in the city.

  • First, thank you for patriotically protecting our urban ecosystems keystone species presently facing functional extinction in the wild.

    First, thank you for patriotically protecting our urban ecosystems keystone species presently facing functional extinction in the wild. If most beneficial thing a conservationist can do for local ecology...is plant a new tree. Then protecting an already maturing tree, which literally represents physical definition of ones local ecosystem. Is exponentially more beneficial, so great job Chi-girl! If you did not check it out yet, here is link to my historical EAB info blog with photos of two oldest cook county ash trees I am voluntarally protecting....https://scottieashseed.wordpress.com/

    Yes permit on record is first line of defence, and revised tag affixed to trunk showing date last treated is only thing defending it from city removal. Know that even with all that, if treatment had been applied poorly. And tree showed decline, city could remove based on diagnosis.

    You are right to be worried since city has already begun removing numbers of recently retreated ash trees when still fully healthy, for reasons such as just because they are ash, and will require inevitable removal anyways in upcoming years.

    So I have already begun working with one senior forestry rep to help organize an official protection program. In fact first time I had discussed this issue with him, he was confident that required permit entered into city wide system with trees exact location was intended to prevent mistaken removal.

    In closing, forestry no longer marks trunks of trees to be removed with big Green painted spot. But now few days before...applies orange parking restriction posters on multiple trees, to allow crews more room for felling. And no poster differentiates which tree or trees are selected for removal, or will not be touched. So six trees with six signs for one removal. Hey Chi girl, here is link to front page story written about my work http://www.oakpark.com/News/Articles/5-9-2017/%27Scottie-AshTree-Seed%27:-Trees-don%27t-have-to-die/

Missing Recycling Bins

There used to be 3 recycling binds for our apartment building. Now two of them are gone. The same thing happened to the building next to ours. One bin will not hold all of our recycling.

Is the city deemphasizing recycling [again]. Or is there a ring of recycling bin thieves hitting our neighborhood.

  • Usually if the scavenger is going to replace damaged or chewed up cans they are replaced within a week. Still suspect the best thing is to check your Scavenger contract to find out if anything has changed. Most landlords/Associations do not advise unit owners/tenants when this is done.

  • If they were the blue bins from the city just call 311 they will bring out more. Mine were stolen as soon as they replaced the previous ones that were stolen. People apparently don't realize they can get their own for free by calling 311

Armed Robbery

Last night, Tuesday, April 24th approximately 10:30 PM a man and a woman were held up at gunpoint in front of 3750 N. Kilpatrick.

I will again say Alderman Ariel Reboyras has not done enough to bring more police officers to our neighborhood. The area has progressively gotten worse and the Alderman has had street roll calls one after another, yet not doing anything to actually protect us.
I will encourage my friends and neighbors to vote out Mayor Emanuel and Ariel Reboyras. We need more than just "lip service" and "dog n' pony shows".

  • Weebis Politically Incorrect Thought Criminal

    I worked with a woman that went to Lakeview High School with Reboyras. She said he was a VERY active member of the latin kings street gang.

    Maybe, if the 30th ward residents were all latin Kings, he'd do something for you.

  • Friendly Neighbor Chicago Needs Some Change

    I've heard rumors about his ties to gangs. Although I failed to actually challenge him last election, I befriended a lot of new people in the ward. In the Belmont-Central business district, business owners told me that he's very thuggish and rude. Last year, a friend of mine said that...

    I've heard rumors about his ties to gangs. Although I failed to actually challenge him last election, I befriended a lot of new people in the ward. In the Belmont-Central business district, business owners told me that he's very thuggish and rude. Last year, a friend of mine said that his nephew I believe was involved in a shooting that occurred in front of his building. I definitely wouldn't doubt that he is somehow more involved in the crime in the ward than some people would want to believe. If Gutierrez wins the alderman seat, she won't investigate him nor the suspicious activity of his entire office. He refused to grant the Chicago Inspector General with the authority to investigate alderman without their consent. I wonder what he's hiding...

Thanks package thieves.......

Hope you enjoy the diaper cream, infant gloves and nasal aspirator you stole from my front door steps on Leland between Linder and Central (Saturday later afternoon). Hope karma bites you in the a&& for stealing items meant for a extremely congested 6 week old baby.

  • Sorry to hear that happened to you. Hope you were able to get the items you needed for the little one.

  • Family Man We call Police!

    That's horrible I hope the baby gets well soon and you were able to get her some supplies.

I need to SOD my front Yard.

Can i get some company recommendation if anyone has them.

  • I literally had my backyard sodded last week and I'm so in love with my yard right now. I contacted a woman named Dana Lyons who owns Jaxy Customscapes (773-343-1148). She and her team did everything.

Traffic study on Long?

Is it possible to order a traffic study on Long between irving and addison? I am now numb to every single car & motorcycle driving thru, accelerating, and/or passing cars AT the stop signs. At this point the city might as well just take them down. They are absolutey, completely, and utterly useless. Can the Sposato "do" anything?

  • Agreed Tom - there is ZERO police presence, especially btwn Addison & Irving Pk Rd, where the elementary school brings many dozens more cars/buses twice a day.
    They have more police presence sitting in wait to nab drivers turning L onto Sunnyside from Central from 4-6pm!! That's nowhere NEAR the same level of public safety issue.

    It's not just Long. Crossing just about any side street is like playing Russian Roulette.

Bungalow Addition

My husband and I live in a bungalow with a large, unfinished attic. We would like to build out the attic and add some bedrooms and a bathroom. We don't want to do a pop-up addition and would prefer to add to the upstairs in a way that would preserve the look and feel of our house. We are doing all this on a budget and we aren't entirely sure where to start. Does anyone have recommendations for architects or contractors that they have used? We have a few leads but are looking for a few more. Thank you :)
