Dear Neighbor,

As many of you know, the water main replacement project in the Andersonville area of our community has been on hold for some time due to tree conflicts. Neighbors in East Andersonville have advocated to save the trees and I heard their concerns and brought them to the Mayor’s Office. Yesterday Mayor Lightfoot announced a planned pilot program to explore options that could prevent the need to remove trees while still maintaining water quality. 

The Department of Water Management has engaged with a consultant who will work with homeowners in the pilot area to investigate different methods of cure-in-place pipe (CIPP) technology to line their personal drains instead of using more invasive trenching technology. Our community will be part of this pilot. Following the pilot program, in late October, the City will determine a process for determining when CIPP might be used instead of open trenching. Even with these alternate methods on the table, there may still be instances when tree removal is necessary. The Department of Water Management will also begin a pilot program to look at using CIPP technologies to line water mains as an alternative to replacing them.

Our community’s advocacy and persistence in seeking alternative options for private drain replacement in order to save the trees has made this pilot program possible. I will continue to keep you updated on the progress of these pilot programs. I thank you all for your patience with the condition of streets in the neighborhood that are awaiting the completion of the water main replacement project. If you have questions about the pilot programs or the Andersonville water main replacement project, please email Emily Volini in my office at emily@48thward.org.

At this week’s Committee on Housing and Real Estate meeting, an ordinance related to condominium deconversions, which I sponsored with Alderman Brendan Reilly passed unanimously. The ordinance increases the threshold from 75% to 85% of owners voting to approve a sale of a condo building to developers. We have seen an increase of proposed condo deconversions in our community and across the city and I have heard from many neighbors about concerns that they will be displaced from their homes. A number of neighbors from Sheridan Road came to the committee meeting to testify in support of this ordinance. I thank everyone who reached out to me about this important issue impacting condo owners. There will be a full vote on this ordinance at Wednesday’s City Council meeting.

This week CDOT began placing jersey barriers along the lakefront as a proactive measure before weather takes a turn this fall and winter. With the rising lake levels, it is important that we do what we can to protect against potential dangerous conditions and damage to infrastructure. CDOT will install jersey barriers in our community, and is working to identify locations now. I will keep you updated on our efforts locally and city-wide to address the rising lake levels. 

Work will begin later this month on the Red Purple Bypass near Belmont that is part of the CTA Red Purple Modernization project. Crews are wrapping up utility relocation in our community in advance of the rebuilding of tracks, embankments, and stations between Bryn Mawr and Lawrence stations. Next year we will see crews constructed temporary stations near Argyle and Bryn Mawr and doing track and signal work near Thorndale to prepare for two-track operation during construction. Work will begin in earnest in our community in the winter of 2020/2021, and the Berwyn and Lawrence stations will close at the time for the duration of construction. We will host another round of community meetings about the project in November. Click here to read a Chicago Tribune article about the Red Purple Modernization project.  If you have any questions about the RPM project, please email Ally Brisbin in my office at ally@48thward.org.

Last night my office co-sponsored a Property Tax Appeal Workshop with Board of Review Commissioner Mike Cabonargi’s office, as well as Cook County Commissioner Bridget Gainer and State Representative Greg Harris.Thank you to the many neighbors who attended and to Commissioner Cabonargi’s team. If you were unable to attend the workshop but would like to appeal your property tax assessment, click here to access the Board of Review’s online portal

This Sunday is the Edgewater Historical Society’s annual Home Tour, a fundraiser for an important organization in our community. This year’s tour features eight homes in the Edgewater Glen community. Registration is open from noon to 4pm at St. Gertrude’s Church, 6200 N. Glenwood. A special thank you to volunteer Margie Fritz-Birch for her leadership and hard work in planning this year’s tour. Click here for more information.

This weekend I’ll be joining others at the ALS Walk for Life at Soldier Field. This important walk helps raise funds for people living with ALS. If you’re interested in donating to this important cause, I would appreciate it.For more information on this event, click here.

Enjoy your weekend.

LGBTQ+ Criminal Justice SurveyThe Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority (ICJIA) is conducting a survey to gather information on harm and help-seeking experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals living in Illinois.

Research indicates LGBTQ+ individuals experience higher rates of crime–specifically higher rates of violent crime. ICJIA researchers collaborated with LGBTQ+ service providers and advocates to design a survey for LGBTQ+ individuals who have experienced harm that will help inform local and state-level policies and practices to address victimization within the community. The survey covers a range of topics, including stressful experiences, disclosure of victimization, and need for and receipt of services after experiencing harm. Participant feedback also will help shape priorities for federal Victim of Crime Act (VOCA) and Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) program funding. Last year, ICJIA disbursed $51.8 million in VOCA and VAWA funds to victim service providers across Illinois.

The 45- to 60-minute survey can be taken online or via hard copy. Participants will be asked to complete a brief screening process either online or by phone prior to taking the survey. Survey respondents will receive a $10 gift card for their participation. For more information or to take the survey, go to: http://www.icjia.state.il.us/research/lgbtq
