  • 920 W Wilson Chicago, IL - Chicago Ward 46
    Street flooded! We shoveled the snow of the drain yesterday - it still doesn't drain... the same sewer drain that can't handle a lot of rain for years now.
  • 3845 North Broadway Street Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
    Temporary Street Plate slams loudly when CTA buses drive over it. The steel plate is set unevenly and the weight of the bus lifts it and slams it against the ground 24 hours a day. Please reset the steel plate or shim it to stop the loud slamming noise.
  • Montrose And Clarendon Chicago IL - Chicago Ward 46
    VOTE TODAY! Historically significant Cuneo Hospital complex at Montrose & Clarendon Avenues includes a wonderful pair of mid-century buildings designed by esteemed architect Edo J. Belli that are perfectly suited for creative reuse. Structures at the site have been determined eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places, yet no adaptive reuse studies have been completed. The community that basks in the glow of Clarendon Park's sunshine is worried about affordability, about shadows from the proposed highrises, about traffic from the proposed retail and apartments. Yet no economic, shadow, or traffic studies have been made public for community consideration, and bird safety concerns persist. Please VOTE TODAY to save these community assets and address these concerns. Uptown can help the City of Chicago find a better solution!
  • 3930 N Pine Grove Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
    The Sidewalk along the west side of Pine Grove ave as well as the south side of Irving Park road west of Pine Grove is caving in and deteriorating along the property of Lake Park Plaza Condo Association. Water is ponding, covering the side walk sometimes for days after rain. The sidewalk is tilting towards the building so the water can never drain. This causes a sanitation hazard, a trip hazard, and a general safety hazard to pedestrians.
  • 666 W Irving Park Rd Chicago, IL - Chicago Ward 46

    Clanking noise from a grated sewer cover since the spring or 2011. The round cover is located in the SW corner of the intersection of Irving Park Road and N. Pine Grove Ave (see photo). The noise is caused every time an east-bound vehicle rolls over this sewer cover, causing a clanking sound that I can clearly hear from my east-side unit at Lake Park Plaza. 311 was called to report to the Chicago Dept. of Water but no response to date.

    NOTE: Though some "adjustment" to the cover was done late summer 2011, the noise level returned within a month of this "repair." Therefore, issue remains the same.

  • 920 West Wilson Avenue Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
    Standing water on the curbs and half way into the street makes it difficult to get to cars and especially difficult for those in wheelchairs because the ramps are flooded.
  • 804 - 836 W. Lakeside Chicago, IL - Chicago Ward 46
    Alley is not graded correctly & sinkholes are forming, leading to creative solutions on the part of local residents to manage stormwater.
  • 4730 North Clarendon Avenue Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
    Running stop signs. Since living here just over a year, I have never seen so many people running these stop signs. People have almost been hit several times. Myself included. I have talked to a few police officers which one even saw and stopped the vehicle disobeying the signs. 311 has not helped either. They have told me to call the police or go to the caps meetings. I am afraid that someone is really going to get hurt. This intersection is extremely busy with Walgreens, 2 hospitals and a busy bus stop near by.
  • 4700 N Beacon Ave Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
    Behind the building, there is a frequently leaking pipe that spills into the alley. It causes major problems with ice buildup. There are also pipes that leak right onto the Leland sidewalk, which also ices up. This causes problems with people and cars. There are slips and falls, and people with disabilities have a lot of trouble.
  • 1229 W. Foster Avenue Chicago, IL - Chicago Ward 46
    Manhole (square) cover on north side of street (westbound lane), directly in front of building at 1227-1229 W. Foster Ave., makes a loud clanging sound when cars drive over it.

    4602 N Malden St Chicago, IL 60640, USA - Chicago Ward 46
    Please install a striped crosswalk at the intersections of Wilson/Malden and Wilson/Dover, including signs in the middle of the street that instruct drivers to yield to waiting pedestrians. This area is near an elementary school and children often try to cross this street, which has no very clearly marked crosswalks nor signs instructing drivers of State law.
  • Clarendon & Lawrence Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
