48th Ward Update: December 11, 2020

Weekly Update from Your AldermanView this email in your browser
December 11, 2020
Dear Neighbor,

Happy Hanukkah to all of our neighbors who celebrate. The holiday began last night at sundown, and I wish a joyful and healthy holiday to all. If you are looking for a way to celebrate in community while staying at home, click here to register for Emanuel Congregation’s celebration this Saturday evening.

Earlier this week Mayor Lori Lightfoot and CDPH Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady announced plans for the City of Chicago to begin distributing COVID-19 vaccines to frontline health workers as soon as next week. The City will continue to receive weekly supplies of vaccines, with the goal of having all adults in Chicago vaccinated by the end of 2021. For more details, visit chicago.gov/covidvaxClick here to watch Wednesday’s address from the Mayor and Commissioner regarding plans for vaccine distribution.

While we are in the winter holiday season, I encourage you to follow the recommendations of public health officials at the City, State, and National level. Please consider celebrating virtually this year, and only in-person with those in your household. Chicago is just starting now to see a spike in COVID-19 positivity rates, likely due to Thanksgiving celebrations. This has been a year of sacrifice in many ways. While it may seem difficult to call off your plans to travel to family this year, it can also be viewed as the easy choice to the save the lives of others. The United States is approaching 300,000 deaths due to COVID, and we are seeing daily rates of deaths near the same level as the lives we lost during the September 11, 2001 attacks. Each person lost is someone’s family member, friend, neighbor, and loved one. Please consider this holiday season how your choices will have a ripple effect through our community, city, county, state, and country.

If you do decide to travel, please review the resources below:Latest guidelines of the City of Chicago Emergency Travel OrderCDC guidelines on safe protocols for travelingInteractive map of COVID-19 testing sites in ChicagoIn addition to physical health, we must also find ways to care for our mental health and that of our loved ones. The Andersonville Chamber of Commerce hosted an event earlier this week in partnership with Swedish Hospital about how to manage stress and anxiety during this difficult time. Click here to view the recording of the session. Be sure to check in on neighbors, friends, and family members to stay connected during this time of extended isolation. For additional mental health resources available at no cost, click here.

In the spirit of supporting our local businesses and staying home, the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce has shifted their traditional “Late Night Andersonville” events to Late Night Pick It Up In Your PJs Curbside Pickup Fridays! Many Andersonville businesses are offering special discounts for Friday night shoppers using the coupon code “AlwaysAndersonville”. Click here for more information on participating businesses.

Committee on Housing and Real Estate UpdatesARO Pilot Extensions
On Tuesday, the Committee on Housing and Real Estate held its final meeting for the year. The Committee passed an ordinance allowing for a six-month extension of three ARO (affordable requirements ordinance) pilot areas: Near West, Near North, and Milwaukee. Slated to sunset at the end of 2020, these extensions will ensure the pilot areas continue while the City enters the final stages of revising the ARO. An ordinance revising the ARO and introducing Inclusionary Housing policies will be introduced in 2021, and I will share more information on the draft ordinance, committee hearings, and more in the new year. Please contact Sara.Dinges@cityofchicago.org if you have any questions.ADU (Additional Dwelling Unit) Ordinance Update
A joint meeting of the Committee on Housing and Real Estate and the Committee on Zoning, Landmarks, and Building Standards is planned for Tuesday, December 15, 2pm, to hear the revised ADU ordinance. If passed in Committee, it will go to City Council the next day, Wednesday, December 16, 10am, which is the final city council meeting of the year.

If approved, the substitute ordinance would create a geographic pilot for the creation of ADUs in five areas of the City starting May 1, 2021. The ordinance is designed to promote the establishment of new residential units within the existing neighborhood fabric. Some of these residential units will be mandated to be affordable, and all of them will increase the supply of housing while maintaining neighborhood character through “gentle” density. The 48th Ward is included in the “North area,” covering parts of West Ridge, Edgewater, Uptown, Lake View, North Center, and Lincoln Square community areas.

Residents and other stakeholders are welcome to comment on the ordinance during the public comment portion of the Joint Committee Meeting of Housing and Real Estate and Zoning, scheduled for December 15, 2020 at 2pm and the December City Council Meeting, December 16 at 10am. Click here for information on participating in Public Comment.While we look for ways to support our neighbors during the holiday season and during the pandemic, consider donating to the Swift School Solidarity Fund. All proceeds donated to this fund will benefit families in need through direct cash assistance that the families can use at their discretion. For more information on how you can support this effort, see below.

Have a peaceful weekend.

This will allow us to conduct the distribution safely and promote social distancing while still giving families the opportunity to choose a gift for their child themselves. It also gives families the option to purchase the gift of their choice online or via a curbside pickup at Target. Donations for the gift card drive can be made here (add “holiday gift drive” in the special instructions field) or gift cards can be mailed directly to Care for Real Attn: Kate Polgar at 5339 N Sheridan Chicago, IL 60640.  To arrange a drop-off of gift cards at Care for Real, please e-mail kate@careforreal.org.

“Ask CPD” Digital Public Awareness Campaign

During the holidays due to an increase in online shopping, there is an uptick in package thefts. Protect your property using an authorized second party package drop off service. Or make special arrangements to be home on the day of deliveries. If you’re not home, have your packages delivered to your place of work or to a friend or neighbor who is home.

Bicycle Theft Prevention

With the cold weather upon us, we understand some neighbors plan on storing or locking their bicycles some place safely. In doing this, we ask that you take these precautionary steps. First, record the serial number and take a picture of your bicycle. Second, always lock your bike’s frame and wheels with a lock. Third, remove all detachable items on the bicycle and if possible lock the bike to a bike rack. Please click on this link to learn about more bicycle theft prevention tips.Chicago Police Department Use of Force Policies

Synonymous with Indian Chinese cuisine is Tangra, meaning tannery in Bengali.
The Hakka immigrants worked in Tanneries in Kolkata and opened small food establishments to cater to other tannery workers. Soon, locals started to visit these food establishments and the cooks began to “spice” up the dishes to cater to the Indian palette: upping the heat, adding more Ginger and Garlic, using more Indian produce and offering a myriad of Vegetarian options. Arguably one of the best inventions by the Hakkas is Schezwan sauce. An Indian pronunciation of “Sichuan”—this is a sauce made from onions, ginger, garlic, and chilies with a peculiar Indian-ish taste and it’s so good on literally anything!

Back to the Hakkas though… after the 1962 Indo-Sino war, many tanneries closed down and thus was born India’s first and only China Town! After seeing the popularity of their morphed recipes, many tanneries turned into restaurants and other dishes were created exclusively to please Indian tastes: Manchurian, Hakka Noodles and Chopsuey are other popular creations.

I’m incredibly excited to cook this menu for you. I grew up on Manchurian and Schezwan sauce and miss it terribly. I’ve received so many requests for this menu that it’s sure to sell out fast! So order up and prepare for you’re tastebuds to be tickled! Form goes live Sat 12/5 at 6 pm!
