Weekly Update from Your Alderman – December 1, 2017

Weekly Update from Your Alderman: World AIDS Day, Youth Open Mic Night, New Businesses, Holiday Events this Week, Yard Waste Pickup, and more!
December 1, 2017
Dear Neighbor:

Today is World AIDS Day, an annual event that provides an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV/AIDS, show their support for people living with HIV/AIDS and to remember those who have died. I’d like to highlight organizations in our community that have been supporting people living with HIV/AIDS for over two decades: TPAN, Vital Bridges, and Chicago House. I’d also like to invite you to attend the 10th annual World AIDS Day Performance benefiting Alexian Brothers’ Bonaventure House, the Lakeview residential care facility for those living with HIV/AIDS. All are welcome to the 7pm performance at Church of the Atonement, 5749 N. Kenmore. See below for more information.

Tonight my office is hosting an Open Mic Night for youth in our community. This event is part of an ongoing effort to give a voice to the youth in our community and to provide them with positive and productive opportunities. Open Mic Night is tonight, Friday, Dec. 1, 6pm at the Latin School-sponsored community space at 4956 N. Sheridan. Click here for more information, and please share with any interested teens you know.

This week we cut the ribbon on two new businesses in our community: an historic mansion that is now a co-working and event space, and a long awaited coffee shop on Argyle. Colvin House/Creative Co-working is an events venue and co-working space at 5940 N. Sheridan. This beautiful landmarked building has been a single family home for nearly 100 years. With Creative Co-working moving in, the building is now open to the community as an asset for us all to enjoy and benefit from. Thank you to Angela Valavanis and her team for investing in our community in this way. First Sip Cafe, 1057 W. Argyle, is a new coffee and tea shop in the heart of the Argyle business district. Owned by second generation Argyle business owners, the daughters of Cafe Hoang (1020 W. Argyle) owners, First Sip is a home-grown coffee shop that is exactly what the neighborhood has been asking for. Please join me in supporting Erin and Gigi in their endeavor. My office looks forward to hosting community events at each of these locations, I will let you know when they are scheduled.

Now that holiday season is upon is, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy a festive time in the community. There are number of events coming up this week:

  • Andersonville First Fridays & Holiday Trolley – This month’s First Friday in Andersonville lasts all day, with special promotions and offers at local businesses. The Andersonville Chamber of Commerce is offering a Holiday Trolley every Friday this month to help shoppers make their way through the district — from Lawrence & Clark north to Gethsemane Garden Center, with stops in between. Click here for details on the Holiday Trolley.
  • Senn Park Holiday Lights – Join Senn Park Advisory Council this Sunday, December 3, 4pm, for a festive evening in the pergola with holiday lights and music from Rickover and Senn High School students. Local business Edge of Sweetness will have hot cocoa for sale. Click here for more information.
  • Chicago Bears & Care For Real Toy Drive – On Monday, December 4, from 5:30-7pm, Chicago Bears linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski will host a special Pop-Up Toy Drive in support of Care for Real. The special collection will take place in front of Toys Et Cetera, 5311 N. Clark. Nick will be onsite to meet and take photos with those who drop odd a new and unwrapped toy.
  • Edgewater Chamber of Commerce Holiday Mixer – Join the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, Dec. 7, 6pm for their annual Holiday Mixer at the newly opened Colvin House, 5940 N. Sheridan. Enjoy food and drink from local restaurants and a fantastic silent auction. Click here for more information.
Lastly, with the late leaf drop this year, there are a lot of bags of yard waste going out in the alleys. Please call or email our office (773-784-5277 or harry@48thward.org) to report when you put your yard waste out to ensure it is picked up.

Have a great weekend.

Sincerely,
Harry Osterman
Alderman, 48th Ward


Public Safety Update

Community Alert – Armed Robberies
This alert gives notice to three recent Armed Robberies that have occurred within the boundaries of the 20th District (Lincoln). In these Robberies, the offender(s) encounter the victims on the sidewalk or alley, display a handgun, and demand the victim’s property.
Incident times and locations:

  • 5400 block of N. Broadway on November 17, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.
  • 5700 block of N. Sheridan Rd. on November 21, 2017 at 7:50 p.m.
  • 4900 block of N. Magnolia on November 21, 2017 at 10:35 p.m.

About the Offenders:

  • One offender is a male Black, 6’2″ tall approximately 215 lbs., with a dreadlock hairstyle wearing all black clothing.
  • A second offender is a male Black, 35-40 years old, 5’7″-5’10” tall and weighing between 150-175 lbs., wearing black clothing.
  • A third offender is a male Black, 5’10” tall, approximately 200 lbs., wearing all black clothing.

What you can do:
• Be aware of this crime and alert your neighbors.
• Pay special attention to any suspicious people loitering in the area.
• Call 911 immediately and provide a detailed description of the offender(s) including any vehicle description and license plate information.

Community Alert – Car Tire Thefts
There have been several incidents where tires have been stolen off vehicles in our neighborhood. The primary vehicle types have been 2014 Infinity x56, 2018 Hondas, 2016 Hondas and 2008 Acuras. Please keep an eye out on your street for suspicious individuals or groups and please call 911 to report.
Some tips to secure your tires and vehicles:

  • Park your car in a closed garage whenever you can. If you live in an apartment or have a house without a garage, this is often not an option. However, a garage works as a barrier that has to be bypassed, and thieves usually have a harder time getting your car elevated in a garage without alerting anyone in the house.
  • Install a car alarm that includes sensors that attach to the wheels. The alarm detects when the car gets tilted, and the wheel sensors also detect when the wheels get tampered with.
  • Park in an area with a lot of traffic when out in public. The more car and foot traffic going by where you park, the less likely thieves want to risk detection by stealing wheels or tires in that area. Park in view of surveillance cameras whenever possible.
  • Turn your wheels when parking. This makes the wheels harder to remove because they get stuck in the wheel well. The car’s steering column lock makes it difficult for the thieves to turn the wheels forward again without a key for the ignition.
  • Use wheel locks on each wheel, including your spare. The locks fit on each wheel and make the lug nuts extremely difficult to remove without a key. It’s important never to lose the key because you’ll need it if you ever get a flat tire. However, the locks greatly reduce your risk of losing your wheels and tires. Lugnut locks are also useful since they require a specially sized wrench to remove. However, the lug nut locks can be melted quickly with a blowtorch to make them fit a regular wrench, so they are not as effective as wheel locks.

Sheridan Road Historic Streetscape Lighting

Edgewater Beach Apartments, 5555 N. Sheridan
Click here for more information

Edgewater Beach Apartments is pleased to announce the installation of thirteen new streetlights along the 5500 block of North Sheridan Road. The new lights are designed to harmonize with the surrounding neighborhood lighting and the historic building they help illuminate. They were selected to replace the old, non- functional lights and new wiring was necessary in order to put them in place. The lights provide attractive LED illumination and add to the appeal as well as to the security of the area along the arcade of the Edgewater Beach Apartments.

A ceremonial lighting of the new lamps will take place on December 6 at 5:30 pm.  Alderman Osterman has graciously agreed to join in the celebration. FREE hot chocolate will be served in front of the arcade shops at 5555 Sheridan Road to celebrate the occasion and to draw attention to this community service.   EBA welcomes shareholders, neighbors, and bus riders to join in until the hot chocolate is gone!

The purchase and installation of the lights was paid for by the shareholders of Edgewater Beach Apartments. The ongoing cost of the electricity will also be paid for by shareholders. EBA is pleased and proud to contribute to the beauty and safety of our Edgewater neighborhood and to North Sheridan Road.

ACA Open Enrollment

The ACA Insurance Open Enrollment season is in effect. The ACA Marketplace is open for business! You can now shop for the best insurance plan for you and your family.
Illinois residents have from now until December 15th to shop for plans – don’t wait, don’t be late!
You can go to www.getcovered.illinois.gov or call (866) 311-1119 to get more information about what plans are available and to sign up to get help enrolling.
Here are a few things to keep in mind during this Open Enrollment season:

  1. Open Enrollment is shorter than previous years – remember you only have until December 15th to shop around for plans!
  2. Financial assistance is available! This year, 8 in 10 people qualified for help paying premiums – and most could find coverage for between $50 and $100 a month.
  3. Cost-free assistance to help you enroll is also available. You can get free, expert help by phone or in-person to help you learn about and compare your options.
  4. Even if you’re already enrolled in an ACA insurance plan, make sure you shop around. You may be able to save money by shopping around and avoid being in a plan that doesn’t work for you.  But you must act by December 15th.
  5. Having insurance, even for the young and healthy, is extremely important. You can get coverage that provides essential health benefits and caps your out-of-pocket costs – with no annual or lifetime limits. Plus, if you don’t have coverage, you could face a penalty of $695.
