Weekly Update from Your AldermanView this email in your browser
August 30, 2019
Dear Neighbor,Thank you to everyone who contributed to a safe, fun, and active summer in our community. This week we hosted our annual 48th Ward Back to School Celebration and last night was the final Argyle Night Market of the season, two sure signs that summer is winding to a close.



With the support of community partners, local businesses, our local Chicago Park District staff, summer interns and volunteers, and the 20th and 24th Police Districts, we hosted close to 100 48th Ward Safe Summer Nights events this summer. From Food Trucks on Berwyn Ave., to CAPS Night Out, to outdoor movies, to Midsommarfest and EdgeFest, our summer programming helps create a sense of place in our community and brings the summer fun to your front door. These events also help to enhance public safety in the community by activating public spaces and bringing neighbors together in a meaningful way. As we head into Labor Day Weekend, please enjoy the 48th Ward Summer Slideshow and look back on the beautiful summer we had together (turn your sound on!):



Public Safety Update

On Monday night, a man was attacked and critically injured in an attempted robbery on the 1000 block of Bryn Mawr and is being treated for his injuries at Saint Francis Hospital. Yesterday the 20th Police District made an arrest in connection with this incident, and a 17 year-old male has charged with aggravated battery.

Due to the 20th District’s increased patrols along Argyle Street, last night officers arrested a 20 year-old on the Argyle CTA platform with narcotics and a firearm. We will provide further updates on this arrest next week. I appreciate the efforts of the 20th District police officers and Commander Sean Loughran to help make our community safer. Due to these efforts, there has been a 16% overall decrease in crime this year, and an 18% decrease in the last three years.

Today I joined with members of the Andersonville community and Chamber of Commerce at court regarding battery charges against Willie Wright for an incident involving a woman in Andersonville. This is the third crime he has been charged with in Andersonville this year. The case was continued to September 27. My office will continue to go to court on this case and provide you updates. If you are interested in serving as a Court Advocate, please contact Alan Oviedo in my office at alan@48thward.org.

I am committed to continue working with you to increase safety throughout our community. Public safety remains a top priority for my office. It is critical that as neighbors we all take an active stance to ensure safety and security for all in our community. Meet your neighbors, shop at local businesses, and call police when you see suspicious and criminal activity. 

State of the City

Last night Mayor Lightfoot presented her State of the City address in advance of the upcoming proposed City Budget for fiscal year 2020. The budget is expected to have a nearly $350 Million deficit. Mayor Lightfoot is hosting a series of Budget Town Halls across the city through the month of September, click here for a schedule. My office will host a series of 48th Ward Town Hall meetings in October and I will share information on the proposed City Budget in upcoming newsletters. I welcome your feedback regarding the City budget and city services.

Back to School

I want to wish a happy and successful new school year to all of our students, parents, teachers, school staff, and principals. The 48th Ward is home to many fantastic schools, public and private alike, and they are important anchors in our community. Thank you to all who ensure our children have safe, enriching, and empowering experiences in the classroom. As we all return to our school year routines, please remember to leave a few minutes early as traffic patterns near schools change, and to be extra vigilant at intersections near schools during drop-off and pick-up hours. 

Enjoy your weekend, shop local, and be safe and responsible while enjoying the lakefront this holiday weekend. 
Sincerely,

Harry Osterman
Alderman, 48th Ward
Public Safety Update

For more information on these incidents, please contact Alan from my office at alan@48thward.org. The 20th and 24th Police Districts are looking to partner with homeowners to assess their property for burglary prevention. If you and your neighbors would like the officers to come out and evaluate your home for burglary risk please contact Alan to set up a time. Please ask your neighbors to participate in this burglary assessment to prioritize the safety on your block.
