Dear Neighbor,

This evening I will join Goudy School (5120 N. Winthrop) Principal Pamela Brandt as a guest worker at the McDonald’s at 5130 N. Sheridan. Please stop by between 4 and 6pm for a burger or a Shamrock Shake, as McDonald’s will donate 20% of all in-store sales to Goudy to support after school programming with CircEsteem. After school programs are critical to ensuring the safety and development of youth in our community.

If you want to keep the Valentine’s Day spirit going through the weekend, there are plenty of local establishments to help you make it special for your loved one. A new floral studio opened in Andersonville last weekend, Foyer, 1480 W. Berwyn, please welcome them to our community. On Bryn Mawr, right next to the Red Line station, Bryn Mawr Jewelry has been in business for 100 years. They sell and service watches and jewelry, and specialize in custom engagement rings. And if you’re looking for a place to eat, consider going to Income Tax, 5959 N. Broadway, this Thursday, Feb. 22, when they partner with Friends of Swift and will donate 10% of all sales that night to Swift Elementary School (5900 N. Winthrop). Click here for more information.

Please join me next weekend for the annual Argyle Lunar New Year Parade on Saturday, Feb. 24, 1pm. The parade will kick off at the train tracks, go along Sheridan, Ainslie, and Broadway, and return to Argyle for cultural performances by local groups and remarks from local and global leaders. Parade day festivities include a few pop-up locations featuring crafts, arts, and treats. For complete details on the day, click here. I hope to see you at the parade, it is always a joyful day of celebrations with neighbors.

It has been a difficult week in our city and country with the death of 18th District Chicago Police Commander Paul Bauer and the tragic shooting at Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School in Florida. We all must continue to look for ways to actively address the violence we see. Working together, we can build a safer city and country. Please give your kids a hug and tell them you love them, and keep the family of Paul Bauer and all those affected by the tragedy in Florida in your prayers.

Have a great weekend.

Sincerely,

Harry Osterman
Alderman, 48th Ward

Kenmore Water Main Project – Between Berwyn and Bryn Mawr

Service transfers are ongoing. Crews have connected all but two buildings to the main between Bryn Mawr and Catalpa and continue to work their way south. Service transfers require water service shut-off, any impacted building will be notified at least 24 hours in advance. It is not expected that any service shut-off will last longer than 8 hours.

After service transfers are complete, crews will pour a concrete cap in the street. When asphalt plants reopen in the spring the street, curbs, and parkways will be fully restored.

About the project:
The Department of Water Management (DWM) and NPL Construction crew is installing 2,002 feet of new 8-inch water main in N. Kenmore Ave., from Bryn Mawr to Berwyn. The old water main dates back to 1889 and needs to be replaced. We expect the water main work to be completed by the end of March. Restoration of the street, sidewalk, and parkways will follow in mid-April. Dates may change depending on weather and other factors.

The Department of Water Management (DWM) and NPL (contractor conducting water main project) will give sufficient notice to buildings before any water service shut-off that is associated with the project. DWM has begun contacting property managers already, and if they haven’t reached out to your building yet, they will soon. Stephanie Gray, the resident engineer on the project with DWM, is on site every day and a great liaison between the community and the contractor.

The City requires a minimum of 24 hour notice before any planned shut-offs, however emergencies do happen, especially during the extreme weather we have been experiencing. NPL, DWM, and our office will do our best to give as much advance notice before shutoffs as possible.

Please contact our office with any questions/concerns/emergencies related to this project. If you would like to be added to an email list to receive detailed updates about this project, please email harry@48thward.org and let us know.
