Weekly Update from Your Alderman – June 9, 2017


Weekly Update from Your Alderman: Midsommarfest, Glenwood Greenway Community Bike Ride, Senn High School Graduation, and more!
June 9, 2017
Dear Neighbor:

We are looking forward to another festive weekend in the ward, with Midsommarfest kicking off today at 5pm. Last weekend served as a great kick-off to summer in our neighborhood. Thank you to all of our community partners who produced fun, positive events to bring neighbors together.

Earlier this week, I joined Jacky Grimshaw, of Center for Neighborhood Technology, and Elizabeth Irvin, of Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, as a panelist at Edgewater Chamber of Commerce’s State of Edgewater breakfast. We had an engaging discussion about trends in the neighborhood and how we can continue to make Edgewater a desirable place to live, work, and play. Thank you to the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce for hosting a thoughtful event.

Join me tomorrow for a family-friendly community bike ride celebrating the completion of the Glenwood Greenway bike lane. We will meet at 10:30am in front of Senn High School, 5900 N. Glenwood, and ride north along the new contraflow lane to Farragut, where we will head west to Clark St. and arrive just in time for the Midsommarfest Opening Ceremonies. All are welcome, helmets are strongly encouraged. For more information and to invite your friends and neighbors to join us, click here for the Facebook event page.

Andersonville Midsommarfest is this weekend! Please come out and support the efforts of the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce and Andersonville Sustainable Community Alliance this weekend. Midsommarfest takes place on Clark Street between Foster and Catalpa. This year’s event features over 20 food vendors — including 9 local eateries — and nearly 100 merchants offering wares and services. The five stages will feature over 60 live performances throughout the weekend. Local businesses along Clark Street will also feature special offers and sales in conjunction with the festival. For all the details on how you and your family can make the most of Midsommarfest, click here.

In addition to Midsommarfest, there are some great events happening in Uptown this weekend as well:

  • As part of Pivot Arts Festival, Axis Lab hosts Base Line: Argyle is Alive on Saturday, June 10, 5-10pm at 1120 W. Argyle St. This event is a pop-up summer festival featuring food, live performances, music, art, & vendors. Click here for more information.
  • Buttercup Park, 4901 N. Sheridan, will host their first Movie in the Park on Saturday, June 10, kicking off the season with Singing in the Rain. The movie begins at dusk. Click here for more information.

Congratulations and best of luck to the 276 seniors graduating tonight from Senn High School. This year’s graduating class has received over $19 million in college scholarships, and 98% of seniors will be attending college and university in the fall. Thank you to Principal Mary Beck and her staff for their commitment to excellence, and tireless efforts to make continued progress at our neighborhood high school. I invite you to join Friends of Senn for their annual fundraiser this Saturday, Brews for Bulldogs. The group’s fundraising goal this year is $25,000. Click here for details on how you can support their effort.

Effective Monday, June 12, our ward will see minor changes to grid garbage collection days. Please click here to view a map outlining affected areas and showing the new collection day. If you have any questions about this matter, please contact my office.

While you are out enjoying the beach, Midsommarfest, or the events in Uptown this weekend, please take precautions to be safe in the extreme temperatures that are expected. If you have elderly neighbors, please check on them and make sure their homes are prepared to keep them cool, as temperatures are expected to exceed 90 degrees this weekend. For information on cooling centers in the city, click here.

Have a great weekend.

Operation Help a Hero

Currently, there are hundreds of homeless veterans in Chicago. When a veteran leaves a shelter or transitional housing and moves to a permanent residence, they often do not have the basic items needed to setup a home. These are things that you and I take for granted, but the men and women who bravely fought to defend our freedom often go without. Alderman Osterman is collecting household items to support our vets as they move into permanent homes. Click here to view a complete list of items that will be accepted at the 48th Ward Office from Memorial Day through July 4th.

CTA Issues RFQ for Phase One Red Purple Modernization Project

As part of a two-step procurement process, the CTA announced it today will issue a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to select a pool of the most qualified contracting teams that can demonstrate the ability to design and build RPM Phase One.

The entire RPM plan, to be completed in multiple phases, will rebuild part of CTA’s Red and Purple lines, sections of which are more than a century old. The tracks, structures and stations are well past their useful lifespan, and can no longer handle additional trains to meet the increasing demands of growing ridership – which is up 40 percent during the rush hours since 2008.

The RPM project is among more than $8 billion of transit investment announced, under way or completed by Mayor Emanuel since 2011, including the mayor’s “Red Ahead” program, a series of projects to improve the Red Line. Once a pool of candidates is finalized, expected later this year, CTA will then invite the potential bidders to submit proposals on how they propose designing and building RPM Phase One when the agency issues its Request for Proposals (RFP) in 2018. The proposals will be considered on a variety of criteria, including experience, price and other factors.

The first phase of RPM is expected to create 5,700 construction jobs. CTA will host numerous outreach events to encourage participation by Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)- certified firms and other minority owned firms that wish to participate in the project. Additionally, the project RFP will include a community-based workforce development component.

Peterson Garden Project – Feasts of Resistance

Resistance doesn’t only take the form of protests and marches—it’s in the food we share, the stories we tell, the gardens we grow. Food shapes culture and conflict shapes food—that’s the premise of Peterson Garden Project’s new Feasts of Resistance cooking class series starting May 25. Explore, cook, and eat iconic dishes from around the world—Burma to Ethiopia, Syria to Haiti, and beyond—that were created or affected by social or political unrest. Sign up for one class or all six at http://bit.ly/PGP_Feasts.

Proceeds from this hands-on cooking series fund PGP’s summer programming for teen refugee girls in GirlForward, dedicated to creating and enhancing opportunities for girls who have been displaced by conflict and persecution.

The locations featured in the classes highlight the countries of GirlForward participants. This summer, PGP will be working with Camp GirlForward campers to share stories from their countries as they garden and cook together. Each week, girls will tend and harvest herbs and vegetables for class, cook a dish focused on that week’s region, and sit down at the end of class to share what they’ve made.

Feasts of Resistance is just one way Peterson Garden Project supports refugees in our community. Learn more about all of PGP’s refugee programming, including garden scholarships and free cooking education, and donate to help ensure everyone is welcome at the table at http://bit.ly/PGP_EveryoneisWelcome.

School & Youth News

Congratulations to St. Thomas of Canterbury and St. Mary of the Lake Class of 2017May 27 marks the graduation of the class of 2017! This group of 42 young men and women distinguished themselves with their character, their maturity and their academic achievements. A very demonstrative sign of their success is the fact that these young people will enter private high schools next fall with scholarship awards that total $513,000. When we project these scholarships over the four years of high school it totals over $2 million!

Who are these budding young scholars? These students are recent immigrants from : Cuba, Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Greece, India, Iraq, Mexico, Nigeria, Peru, Viet Nam, Togo. Fourteen of these students entered our school with no knowledge of English.  Tragically, four members of the class have  lost a parent within the last several years.  All members of the Class of 2017 qualify for free lunch under the federal standards.

One student, a sixth grader, when writing her farewell message to the class to the Class of 2017 said   “Destroy Obstacles!”  The Class of 2017 is well on their way to fulfilling that mandate!!
