    Why I voted against the taxpayer subsidy for Presence Health
    The City Council yesterday voted to provide a $5.6 million tax increment finance subsidy to Presence Health. I was one of 18 aldermen who voted against the subsidy. Allow me to explain why. The subsidy was given to entice the health care provider to move its headquarters, and the 200 jobs that came with it, from the suburbs to downtown Chicago.

  • John Lyrla Retired

    For someone to suggest that an alderman would take his "marching orders from the cardinnal" goes back to the bigoted thoughts of the 1960 presidential election when certain groups campaigned against John Kennedy with the idea he would take orders from the Pope. I am surprised any one thinks that bigoted way today.

  • robin in WRP I support a 28th Amendment 4Free & Fair Elections!

    Really, Mr. Lyrla? With the rise of hate crimes in this country, you are surprised that there are bigots?

Crime near Juneway Terrace

Hi potential neighbors!

I’m interested in purchasing a home 🏠 between Jonquil and Juneway ( around the 1500 blk ) and was wondering if you could give me some true neighborly feedback on what the neighborhood is really like vs what the Realetor is saying ... Thru my own research it appears 400 plus crimes are listed in the last six months ! YIKES!!
I’ve lived in Chicago neighhoods all my life but always in apt complexes ( l know things happen I’m wondering is this a safe move for my family and I?
Would appreciate any info I can gather before making this big decision. Thanks kindly ,

C2

  • I live on Sheridan between Jonquil and Juneway, so I am very close. There is a good amount of crime near by. More towards Gale elementary. With that said, I have never felt unsafe in the 8 years I have lived here, and freely walk around with my 2 kids. I am a realtor too. If you need help :)

No street lights on Juneway this week

Was reported many nights ago... When will this be fixed?

  • I don't think so...I've been told 7 business days regarding either, but I'm glad it's getting repaired :)

  • The repair took two days. Request #18-00370807 was made on Jan. 20th and it now is closed on Jan 22nd. That's two days from the confirmed date of request to final repair and closure.

Parents please contact your local schools council to support safe passage in Rogers Park.

After the recent shootings and strong armed robberies a small group of concerned parents met to discuss options.
We were advised to take our concerns to local schools principles and the LSC.
There is no formal process in place to establish safe passage in Rogers Park.
The idea is to have this in place for the start of the fall session.
If this effort gains traction the local police commander and Alderman can provide additional information and guidance.
It all starts with parents contacting the LSC and principles.

  • Bruce_ Comment by TBD, whom you've muted

    Thanks for everyone's help in bringing these valuable resources to Rogers Park.

    http://www.fox32chicago.com/news/local/safe-passage-program-expands-to-14-more-schools

  • This old posting is from 2016. Is the original poster, Bruce, trying to stir the pot by dragging it up again with hopes of provoking argument and controversy? None of the 14 schools mentioned in the most recent comment are in or near Rogers Park. A posting from two years ago is no longer informative. The new listing of schools isn't relevant to Rogers Park. Old news isn't helpful and unnecessary provocation isn't neighborly. What's your point Bruce?

Loyola Redline Mugging This Weekend

I'm not seeing it in the news yet but apparently a young man was mugged Saturday night and has now died from the head trauma he sustained. A friend of his posted this on facebook. "He was found early Saturday morning at the Loyola station in Chicago. He was laying at the bottom of the stairs with his wallet missing and with serious head trauma."
This is all the info I have and just wanted my neighbors to be aware.

Join your Rogers Park neighbors for the Resistance as we march with hundreds of thousands of Chicagoans to send a strong, unified message to Donald Trump that we continue to stand united and support each other in protecting and furthering women's rights and the rights and civil liberties of all people.

The 49th Ward Democratic Party is one of over 100 "supporting groups" that are providing support and marchers for the March to the Polls, the Second Annual Women’s March on Chicago, taking place this Saturday, January 20th.

We are sponsoring a bus that will take you directly to the site of the rally and march at the intersection of Congress Parkway and Columbus Drive and bring you back to Rogers Park that afternoon after the march and rally have ended.

Meet us this Saturday, January 20th, 9:00 a.m., at the 49th Ward Democratic Party office, 1774 W. Greenleaf (at Ravenswood). We will have complimentary coffee and donuts to help get your morning started.

Space for the bus is filling up quickly, so please RSVP as soon as possible to guarantee yourself a seat. To RSVP, visit:

https://goo.gl/forms/QPLLXYAcnHocT2Xi1

Complete the form, letting us know how many people will be joining you. Or call us at 773-973-4949.

Last year, we packed three buses with over 150 Rogers Park residents, who traveled downtown to join 250,000 women and their allies who raised their voices for issues each of us hold dear. That historic day embodied the ongoing fight for women’s rights.

This Saturday, we will come together again to celebrate the spirit of the resistance efforts over the past year and unite to focus on the 2018 elections and beyond.

The 49th Ward is clearly strong and united and the March to the Polls this Saturday is an important act of resistance. Please join us for this historic march.

    Women's March to the Polls with the 49th Ward Dems
    Travel together with fellow progressive Democrats to the 2018 Women's March to the Polls. We will meet at 9 a.m. at 1774 W. Greenleaf Ave (at Ravenswood) and ride together to Congress and Columbus where the Women's March will begin. Please RSVP below so we can arrange travel.

Safety in Rogers Park

Hey all,

I'm a female in my 20s looking to move to Rogers Park in the spring and wanted to hear what you have to say about the safety of the neighborhood. It seems like there's been a lot of gun violence reported...has this always been an issue? Are there certain areas that are better than others? Are there any programs in the neighborhood to increase safety? Thanks for any advice!

They had a dog stuffed into a suitcase with it's head sticking out--the zipper appeared too tight on it's neck. They continually batted it's face and seemed almost like they were trying to stuff him inside further.

I confronted them and they seemed completely unconcerned about the mistreatment. I switched cars to call the police, and also informed the driver. Two other witnesses said that after I switched cars, the couple became verbally belligerent. I don't believe any action has been taken yet.

If you see these people carrying this dog around, please report to police or animal shelter!

Some years ago the northwest corner of Glenwood & Dwevon was owned by Kaplan, who rented out apartments to pimps, prostitutes and drug dealers. Then UPS moved east to their current location. I don't know if Kaplan owns the corner site of the old drug store that vacated a few years ago. Anybody know what Kaplan is up to, or whether he still owns property in the neighborhood. His rentals were bad news.

Six new police officers hit the streets in Rogers Park this week, as Chicago Police deployed 53 new officers across the City’s 23 police districts. The deployments are the latest installment of the plan to grow the Chicago Police Department by nearly 1,000 officers.

The new deployments come at a time when the 49th Ward is experiencing a significant decrease in gun violence.

Despite a series of horrific shooting incidents last fall, which included the death of school teacher Cynthia Trevillion and the injury of a young man who was a target of gang recruitment, the 49th Ward last year experienced a 33% decrease in homicides as compared to 2016 and a 31% decrease in shooting incidents.

The reduction in shooting incidents continued a trend that began two years ago. Since 2015, the 49th Ward has seen a 42% decrease in shootings.

    Perspective | I've been a census enumerator. Asking about citizenship is a terrible idea.
    CHICAGO - The Van Dorn, an overcrowded apartment building in the Rogers Park neighborhood, is Donald Trump's worst nightmare, both as a luxury real estate developer and a nativist politician. Although its name connoted New York Knickerbocker elegance when it was built in 1923, the Van Dorn is now a shabby hive of tiny studios that overheat whenever the oven is dialed to 425.

  • The purpose of the census is to count the number of PEOPLE living in this country, not the number of CITIZENS living in this country. US citizens living abroad (who can vote), aren’t counted in the census, with a few minor exceptions.

  • Federal employees and their family members who work for our government in other countries. Also, anyone serving elsewhere in the military. Why? I don’t know, but I’d guess it’s because they are only living outside of the US due to their government service, whether it be civilian or military.

    Dan, I have not followed his career in detail. 20 yrs and nothing to really pin as success?

    Can you or anyone help me with good initiatives he led the fight against.

Gated Lot.

This lot is next to another vacant lot across from a lot under development.

  • That's privately owned property on Morse to the east of the Mayne Annex, The Mayne Stage, JB Albertos and across the street from another Tawani project that is under development right now. Is Bruce claiming some authority over telling the owner of private property what they can or can't do...

    That's privately owned property on Morse to the east of the Mayne Annex, The Mayne Stage, JB Albertos and across the street from another Tawani project that is under development right now. Is Bruce claiming some authority over telling the owner of private property what they can or can't do with their own property? Contrary to the claim above, it's not "next to another vacant lot". The owner is using that lot as a parking area in support of a highly successful business on Morse Avenue. It's not "vacant" or unused. Is there a point to posting these photos of privately owned property?

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Yes, I think there's a point. It's obviously #3 in a series entitled The Vacant Lots of Rogers Park. What will Tuesday bring? Will it be east or west of Clark? I can hardly wait. Wonder whether he has Mo's farm on his list of vacant lots.

    It's all part of a plan.
