Notified About

  • 1200 West Lawrence Avenue Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
    The City continues to allow the " tent cities" to break a multitude of city codes that were created to protect the health and welfare of the general public. We have 100 plus people who " have chosen" to live in the park and viaducts rather than move to a shelter that is not located in the area of choice. As a result we have aggressive homeless wandering the area, over turning garbage carts , drinking and drugging in the park and blocking public access to sidewalks and viaducts. Lawerence and Wilson need to be cleaned and rodent baiting done on a weekly basis. One questions the mental stability of any individual who would choose to live in a viaduct in a Chicago winter rather than a shelter. I would guess the primary reason is that shelters are generally " dry". You can not drink and drug in the shelter thus you refuse to go. City codes must be enforced for the welfare of the community.

    When is the city going to help move the homeless encampment from out of the underpass at Lawrence Avenue and Lake Shore Drive. It's shameful that these people don't have proper places to live/sleep. It's also a public hazard and sanitary issue. This has been here for months/years and should be corrected.

  • 5430 N. Sheridan Rd Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 48
    The parking lot at 5440 is litter filled, unkept grass, rodent filled in grassy area and poorly kept. There needs to be a violation issued to pave the area and make it a proper parking area. Eye sore on Sheridan Rd.

  • Marine Drive And Lawrence Avenue Chicago, IL - Chicago Ward 46
    Instead of parkways between Marine and Clarendon, Lawrence Ave has traffic lanes. Crash this morning illustrates danger because cars go right onto sidewalk. One car crossed south sidewalk and crash thru iron fence. Other car ended by NW corner of Marine & Lawrence where other cars have cause previous fence damage.
