Weekly Update from Your Alderman – November, 10, 2017

Weekly Update from Your Alderman: CTA Meeting, Andersonville Galleria Celebrates 10 Years, Shop Local, Veteran’s Day, and more!
November 10, 2017
Dear Neighbor:

Thank you to the many neighbors who attended the community meeting CTA held on Wednesday night to gather community feedback about development opportunities in conjunction with the Red Purple Modernization project. The CTA will be acquiring properties to use for construction staging and is working to plan for future redevelopment. Click here to view information that was presented at Wednesday’s meeting. Please send me your thoughts and feedback on these materials.

Earlier this week, the City Council voted on $9.6 million in TIF funding to acquire 30 acres of land on the west side of Chicago to build a new state-of-the-art Police and Fire training academy. I supported this measure, along with many west side aldermen whose communities are deeply affected by violence. This facility will have a positive impact on the west side and will assist in the improved training of Chicago Police officers and Firemen. In the weeks to come, I will be meeting with Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to discuss the Chicago Police Department’s ongoing reform and improved training efforts, which are critical for the safety of our city. Concerns have been brought up about the use of TIF funds for this land purchase, instead of returning them to help fund Chicago Public Schools. As a strong supporter of CPS, I share these concerns, but I believe this is an important project for the west side and our entire city. As part of the 2018 City Budget, we will be returning a significant amount of TIF funds to CPS and other taxing bodies. Additionally, I am working to secure $3 million in TIF funding for improvements and renovations to Senn High School.

Congratulations to Andersonville Galleria, 5247 N. Clark, on celebrating 10 years in business. The Galleria has served as a business incubator to countless artisans and creative businesses over the years. More than 100 vendors sell their wares at the Galleria, 12 of which have been part of Galleria for all 10 years! Help them celebrate tonight at their anniversary party from 6 to 10pm, click here for more information.

As the holiday season approaches, please make every effort to shop and celebrate locally. Our local Chambers of Commerce work to promote and support the business districts in our community throughout the year. In a time when you can order everything from groceries, to dinner, to clothes and household items online, never needing to leave your home, it is important that we take the extra effort to shop at local retailers. Our community is a desirable place to live, in part because of the thriving business districts boasting locally owned and operated businesses. Their success is dependent on our loyal and consistent support. See information below on the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce’s #AlwaysAndersonville local holiday shopping pledge. Click here to learn how you can earn a free ticket to the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce’s Holiday Mixer at the Colvin House by shopping locally during the week following Thanksgiving.

There are a number of great events taking place around the ward this weekend:

On this Veterans Day, we would like to honor and thank all those who have served in the military. All veterans are invited to be recognized at a short ceremony on Friday, November 17, at 12:45pm at the Broadway Armory, 5917 N. Broadway. This event is co-sponsored by my office, Edgewater Satellite Senior Center, and Edgewater Village. Please contact ginger@48thward.orgif you are able to participate.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the snow.

Sincerely,
Harry Osterman
Alderman, 48th Ward


Planned Water Main Projects in 48th Ward
The Department of Water Management plans to install approximately 2,002 feet of 8-inch water main on Kenmore between Bryn Mawr and Berwyn. As part of this project, the east half of Kenmore will be resurfaced along with the repair of damaged parkway and sidewalk. Water main installation is anticipated to begin in November 2017 with completion in early December 2017. Once the water main is installed, the street will be restored so that traffic is not impacted. However, final restoration is weather dependent and may not occur until the spring of 2018 or until weather permits.

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.
