48th Ward Weekly Update- June 25, 2021

Weekly Update from Your AldermanView this email in your browserJune 25, 2021 
Dear Neighbor,



My office had the joy of starting our week with a number of celebrations:On Saturday we joined Metropolis Coffee for their Grand Reopening of their Granville cafe. The team at Metropolis is excited to be back with new offerings.Monday marked the grand reopening of Vincent Restaurant on Balmoral in celebration of new ownership. Please join me in congratulating Rich Sypniewski on building off of previous owner Michael Bransford’s legacy.On Tuesday we joined representatives from Walgreens, Senn High School Principal Mary Beck, and Digital Journalism Instructor Mike Cullinane to recognize 2021 Senn Graduate Sam Oliva on her achievement winning the Walgreens Expressions award for her video, “Just Grow Through It”. Click here to view her award-winning and uplifting video.Thank you to the 50 neighbors who joined for Wednesday’s virtual Community Review Meeting regarding a proposed development at 1101-15 W. Berwyn Ave. The development team shared an updated proposal which incorporated community concerns. Click here to view the updated renderings and floor plans shared at the meeting. For an overview of their request and a link to view a recording of Wednesday’s meeting, click here. I will accept feedback from neighbors through Wednesday, June 30, 5pm, to inform my position on their requests.

On Monday, June 28, at 6pm, my office will host a Community Review Meeting regarding TimeLine Theatre’s request for a Zoning Change and PPA (Public Place of Amusement) license. In 2018 TimeLine Theatre purchased the building and vacant lot at 5033-35 N. Broadway, just south of Sun Wah BBQ. TimeLine is an award-winning and highly acclaimed theatre company with a mission to tell human stories inspired by history. Their plans for the site involve: a 250-seat live performance theatre, rehearsal and office space, cafe, bar, and a museum. My office has been working closely with leadership from TimeLine Theatre for years and believe they will be a strong economic and cultural anchor at the northern end of the Uptown Entertainment District. Click here to register for Monday’s meeting.

City Council will meet today at 1pm to complete business not attended to during Wednesday’s meeting. Like many of you, I was disappointed by Wednesday’s turn of events. Mayor Lightfoot showed a lack of decorum in her interactions with Alderwoman Jeannette Taylor, and an overall lack of control over the proceedings in her role as President of the body. My vote in support of adjourning the meeting was not to signal a desire to delay critical City business, rather an acknowledgement that things were taking a bad turn. I believed it was in everyone’s interest to take a break and regain a commitment to the Rules and Orders of City Council. I am hopeful today’s meeting will see calm, orderly, and respectful conduct from my colleagues and the Mayor alike. You can stream today’s meeting on the City Clerk’s website.

Sheridan Road resurfacing between Bryn Mawr and Devon is slated to begin after the Fourth of July weekend. We will provide more details in our upcoming Monday Construction Update email, and will provide weekly updates in our Friday newsletter throughout the project. This is a project the neighbors on Sheridan and leadership from ASCO have been advocating for, and while it will slow down some morning commutes, it will ultimately be a great improvement to a critical thoroughfare in our community. Thank you for your patience and if you have any questions or concerns about this project, please email harry@48thward.org



The Edgewater Chamber of Commerce has announced that they will extend their Monday Farmers Market in the Broadway Armory Parking Lot through the end of August. If you haven’t made it yet, you’ve got plenty of opportunities this summer to support this event.

This weekend the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce is hosting the first in a series of open-air Vintage Markets on Catalpa between Clark and Ashland. Click here for more information.

Have a peaceful weekend, and stay cool.

Sincerely,

Harry Osterman

This summer 48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman will host a series of hyper-local Community Visioning Meetings. As we begin to emerge from the pandemic, our office is beginning to receive inquiries and proposals regarding new developments. Our Community Visioning Meetings will be opportunities to connect with neighbors to collaborate on a shared vision for the future of our community.

Along with proposals currently coming to the 48th Ward office, our community is seeing the largest investment in public infrastructure in a lifetime with the Red Purple Modernization Project. With the completion of this project — including new stations, embankments, and tracks between Bryn Mawr and Lawrence — we expect to see additional private investments with the renovation and redevelopment of properties along the Red Line.

We encourage neighbors in the following areas to join us at our meetings this summer. We will hold multiple engagements for each region: Berwyn, Argyle, Bryn Mawr.Argyle Community Visioning Kick-Off Meeting

The Chicago Police Department also has launched a public input form and is setting up deliberative dialogues for community groups interested in discussing the foot pursuit policy with members of CPD.Public Comment on Policy

CPD has partnered with the Center for Conflict Resolution to provide neutral facilitation and note taking for the meetings.

Mayor Lightfoot calls on residents and community experts to give the city their biggest and best infrastructure ideas. 

Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot announced that applications are now open for the Chicago Works Community Challenge, an unprecedented $10 million competition to find the best public works projects in each of Chicago’s seven planning regions. 
 
“The Chicago Works Community Challenge provides an opportunity for all of our residents to tell us what infrastructure projects they want to see in their neighborhoods,” said Mayor Lightfoot. “While seven projects will ultimately be selected, every idea we receive through this initiative will be forwarded to City agencies for future consideration as a part of our overarching five-year capital plan. I encourage residents from all walks of life to participate in this challenge, which makes neighborhood investment a collaborative effort.” 
 
Projects eligible for funding through the Community Challenge include new investments in public parks, schools, libraries, City-run community centers and City-owned vacant lots. 

Applications are open to all City of Chicago residents and are due by Monday, Aug. 30. Community groups and nonprofits based in Chicago are also invited to submit proposals to the challenge.
