Weekly Update from Your Alderman

February 7, 2020
Dear Neighbor,

Yesterday Mayor Lori Lightfoot declared the eroding lakeshore, due to rising lake levels and severe weather, a local disaster in a letter to Governor JB Pritzker. Governor Pritzker issued a proclamation declaring a state disaster, and requesting funding from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency to assistance in response and recovery and seek additional support from Federal agencies. Beaches in Rogers Park and South Shore have seen significant damages, and we have seen beaches in our community shrink this winter. I will continue to work with my City Council colleagues and State and Federal officials, along with the Mayor, to advocate for the restoration of public infrastructure and lakefront. I will keep you updated as this issue progresses.

The 48th Ward is home to a variety of great schools, from early childhood education, through grade school, and onto higher education. This weekend there are opportunities to support two schools in the community. This afternoon I will be a guest server at McDonald’s, 6321 N. Broadway, during Dining Out for Swift, from 3:30-5:30pm. McDonald’s will donate 20% of sales during the event to Swift Elementary School, 5900 N. WinthropClick here for more information.

Tomorrow evening I will be a guest bartender at The Double Bubble6036 N. Broadway, during the Queen of Hearts drawing to benefit my alma mater, Northside Catholic Academy. If you get a chance please stop by. Click here for more information.

Tomorrow my office will join with 40th Ward Alderman Andre Vasquez, the Chicago Department of Transportation, and the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce to host a community meeting and workshop to discuss plans for a community space on Catalpa between Clark St. and Ashland Ave. This is the first of a number of meetings to gather community input on ideas for programming and structural elements for the plaza. Activating this space will help to connect the northern part of Andersonville to the south and has the opportunity to draw more people to the Andersonville business district. Click here for more information about the meeting.

Tomorrow morning the Aldi grocery store at Granville and Broadway will host an Open House for neighbors to talk with store leadership about their request for a liquor license to sell beer and wine. I will announce a future community meeting about the request, please try to stop by Aldi, 6221 N. Broadway, between 9am and 11am, to learn more about their plans. Click here for Open House flyer.

This week our local police commanders met with some of our local community groups. On Monday 24th District Commander Michelle Rubino and I met with the Edgewater Glen Association block club and yesterday 20th District Commander Brendan McCrudden and I met with Bryn Mawr businesses to discuss safety concerns. It is critical that we all take steps to ensure the safety and security of our own homes and businesses and the community in general. Please see the Public Safety Update below for tips on how to protect yourself and your neighbors.

As the effects of winter make their impacts on our streets, my office is planning our capital improvement projects for the coming year. Please share your infrastructure requests and ideas with us to be considered for our 2020 Menu program by emailing me at harry@48thward.org.

If your family is looking for some fun on Sunday, stop by the the Care for Real Valentine’s Open House. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the important work Care for Real does to serve our neighbors, and you and your family can make Valentine’s for Care for Real clients. See below for more details about Sunday’s day of service.

As a reminder, CTA weekend work continues between Thorndale and Ardmore this weekend. From tonight at 10pm through 4am Monday, the Red Line stations at Bryn Mawr, Thorndale, and Granville will be closed. There will be a free Broadway bus shuttle operating during station closures. If you ahve any questions about CTA construction, please email ally@48thward.org.

Have a safe and peaceful weekend.

Court Advocacy Chair
The Court Advocacy program is an integral part of CAPS. Each of the 25 police districts has a Court Advocacy Subcommittee. With input gathered at beat meetings or from other members of the community, the Court Advocacy Subcommittees, working with the Police Department, identify and track cases of interest to the community.Court Advocacy Subcommittees play an important role in advancing the goals of making our neighborhoods safer. First, volunteers provide support for victims and witnesses who may be hesitant to testify in court. The presence of Court Advocacy volunteers from their community can make the difference in whether a victim or witness decides to appear in court. Second, the presence of Court Advocacy volunteers sends a strong message to the defendant, the judge and all other interested parties in the criminal justice system: the community cares about the outcome of these cases and is willing to devote its time and energies to monitoring the workings of the judicial system.If you are interested in becoming the next Court Advocacy Chair please reach out to the 20th District CAPS office email 
CAPS.020District@chicagopolice.org or call (312) 742-8770. 

2020 Beat Meeting SchedulesBeat meetings ensure that any community issue on your block is addressed as a part of the problem solving process that we as a community work collaboratively. Also, we work together to discuss trends that may be emerging in the beat and to discuss beat statistics.

For this new year, the 20th police district has consolidated Beat 2022 and Beat 2023 meetings to the Kenmore Plaza, 5225 N Kenmore Ave on the second Thursday of every odd month.
