  • Tree Removal Archived
    4646 N Magnolia Ave chicago, il - Chicago Ward 46

    Hello all,

    Today, 1/20/14, the residents of 4644 N Magnolia Ave had a tree removal company come onto their property beginning at approximately 8am. Surely this is not an issue per city codes regarding noise, but I am inclined to believe that common courtesy could have gone a long way in this situation. I was abruptly awoken at 8am this morning by these workers and it is now nearly 3pm and the tree removal crew is still sawing away. Given that I am a full time student and I work two part time jobs, one of which is primarily from home, this has been an incredible nuisance for me. My studio sits not 20 yards from these folks' yard. Had the residents bothered to inform neighbors that a lengthy day of tree removal was forthcoming, I would have no issue -- I would have stayed with a friend elsewhere.

    So, please, can we all agree to be a bit more neighborly, considering that this is a densely populated area with numerous apartments?

  • 4501 N. Clarendon Chicago, IL - Chicago Ward 46
    There was flooding again in Clarendon Park Community Center during the rains on June 30, 2014. This historic building was originally a beach house that was considered a gem of the Chicago lakefront, but the four large towers were removed in the 1970s, leaving a broad flat roof that would be an excellent candidate for a green roof to deal with the chronic stormwater problem. The need for lighting for the adjacent playing fields and playground could be addressed through a highly visible solar installation paired with the green roof. The community center lies within the Illinois Coastal Zone and will celebrate its 100th birthday in 2016. Please fix this historic building, which is one of Uptown's most successful civic spaces!
  • 750 West Montrose Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
    Knee high weeds, multiple broken windows. . Can this building really have passed the " vacant building annual inspection" ?My guess is it was never actually completed.
  • 4505 North Malden Street Chicago, IL 60640, USA - Chicago Ward 46
  • N Lake Shore Dr Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
    Flagrant and repeat parking in Cleary marked tow zone. Why? Police don't ticket. Thought Chicago needed revenue.
  • 1000-1016 West Leland Avenue Chicago, IL 60640, USA - Chicago Ward 46
    This business has added dumpsters and continues to overfill them with disposed food and waste. Clearly they need to pay to have the dumpsters emptied more frequently. I've also watched their customers urinating on the dumpsters.
  • 814-816 W. Lakeside Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
    Usual spot where people dump things in north alley between 814 and 816 W. Lakeside. Private waste contractors for both buildings have made multiple pickups each but won't pick up this chair.

    Crosswalk markings at Leland and Dover, as well as several other intersections on Leland, are completely worn.
  • 801-809 West Buena Avenue Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
    Same issue as for E-W on Buena applies for N-S on Clarendon. Here a photo on W side of Clarendon walking S across Buena. Key route for school children and for those going to nearby public library on Buena.

    Clarendon Park has a lot of drifting and lake effect snow and has done a great job staying on top of it this winter!
  • 4550-4598 North Clarendon Avenue Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46

    Uptown Pigeon & the Boss visited Clarendon Avenue yesterday in full Halloween costume to inspect the mile of repair work being carried out by the Chicago Dept. of Transportation.

    The verdict? It's looking GREAT and CDOT is doing a super job.
