the only thing that can be done is report it. seriously, download the 311 app. it couldnt be simpler. they definitely prioritize anything that could be construed as gang/hate speech, run of the mill tagging is probably lower priority.

It was Daley who had the graffiti blaster team. I am pretty sure Emanuel disbanded it. I noticed an uptick fairly soon after Daley was out of office.

Would you be surprised if I told you it was a more prevalent 20+ years ago? Even the L cars themselves used to get tagged like you used to have in NYC, not near as rampant but it did happen.

Yeah, that proposal is a real shame given the transformation currently occuring at Six Corners (apparently now Six Pointes? lol):



Novak wasting no time, cracking the whip on Taylor Demo:



Needless to say my 18 month old was very enthused by the "Bobcats", as he calls literally every piece of construction equipment, going at the structure. Very enjoyable to have him on your shoulders as a monster excavator drives off a 20' tall pile of rubble using the arm to keep from flipping. Speaking of I too had to use my arm to keep JR from flipping off my shoulders as he was bouncing and flailing about out of a combo of shear joy and excitement.

I had no idea this Comed proposal even existed nor that a meeting was happening or I would have gone and ripped them a new one considering we live like 3/4 of a mile due North of there. If they really must have all this big box retail, stack the parking in a ramp and do a "streets of Woodfield" type outdoor mall. With all the incoming density in the area, every square foot of surface parking is a missed oppurtunity for more revenue. I was actually just admiring on our walk this AM how Kilpatrick North of Jewel has filled in to become a really neat mixed use, mixed density district. There's new single family homes, a new 4 story retirement community with nice masonry, older small multifamily properties on the other side of the street, Omega Yeast's funky new facility next to the Metra stop, now the new tower at Milwaukee bookending the view down the street. It's too bad there's no way to connect Knox through to the Jewel parking lot. The mish mashed street grid in this area is really the only thing holding it back.

I'm surprised there's a single person left alive in this city given the fact that someone has been applying unauthorized coating products to hard surfaces all across town! Literally every can of spray paint results in one or more dead children. No idea how anyone can survive growing up in Chicago with this murderous crew spreading their fatal craft all about like fairies sprinkling anthrax pixie dust!

Chicago awards grants to spur development near transit in disinvested neighborhoods
The city selected 11 projects that range from a healthy corner store to senior housing to a food hall and walk-up ice cream window.

A bustling corridor at 79th Street and the Dan Ryan Expressway with housing and retail. A healthy corner store walking distance from the 95th Street Red Line. A food hall and walk-up ice cream window in East Garfield Park.

These are among the 11 projects the city of Chicago is funding through a pilot program promoting development around transit stations. Funding totals $160,000 in microgrants and technical assistance with each project receiving up to $20,000. The city is proposing $10 million more in its 2022 budget.

So this is how Rosa is funding his "Latino plaza"? And we are going to call spending money on landscaping with a Central American geometric design in the pavers "TOD"? We are supposed to pretend that pavers and bushes are going to make Chicago more equitable? Talk about virtue signaling. The 35th Ward is bleeding residents, the only Ward on the North side losing population at anywhere near that rate, and fucking Carlos is over here planting flowers and calling it Transit Oriented Development.

Yeah I'm sure the hundreds of families being thrown of two flats will suddenly be able to afford to buy their buildings because you made a "Latinx themed plaza". Hold my beer, I'm going to make a North Pole themed Christmas display this year to stop global warming and save the polar bears.

What an insufferable idiot.

A bit harsh... but you're not wrong. Rosa needs to get his head out of his ass and actually address affordability issues in his ward-and spoiler-not through downzoning.

^ No, he really doesn't.

The less Rosa does, the better. He needs to go the hell away

these far-left anti-development alderpeople are awful. Virtue signaling to their constituents while nothing gets done. There are several of these folks around Chicago, we need to cut like 50% off.

They love acting like they're solving a problem when they're doing a bunch of nothing. This also applies to Lightfoot, police superintendent, and several others, but thats a discussion for another time...

15 new construction building permits were issued to build 15 new SFH on the former site of William H King Elementary School on the 2500 block of W Lexington in Tri Taylor. That school was torn down a few years ago.

This is right behind the 15 SFH already built on the same block of 2500 W Polk within the last few years.

Nice. I’m rooting for Tri-Taylor

Some years ago I saw some potential investment property there but decided against pursuing it. It’s got good bones and is starting to rise again. It was building up before the 2009 recession but sort of remained “frozen in place” for many years after that. It seems to have fully “thawed” from that.
