Weekly Update from Your Alderman – September 7, 2018

September 7, 2018

Dear Neighbor,
I want to thank all of our schools for getting off to a great start this week. This summer Senn High School went through a three million dollar capital project, which included renovation to the interior of the school and renovation to the front entrance making it ADA accessible. Next summer CPS plans on an additional 10 million dollar renovation for Senn High School for interior work and classroom renovations. This coming week if weather permits Peirce Elementary School will begin a one-month capital project to replace the astroturf playing field. Also, Goudy Elementary School starts the year as an ISP school, which recognizes Principal Pamela Brandt leadership by giving her more autonomy in budgeting, curriculum, and planning for future growth at Goudy.

Chicago Park District is offering youth programming for teens at Senn Park, located inside Senn High School. Look below in our youth update for a full list of those programs.

This week City of Chicago attorney’s and Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office agreed to include a provision in the pending consent decree involving the Chicago Police Department, that will require Chicago police officers to document when they point their firearm at someone while on duty. The consent decree is expected to be finalized in the next two to three months. I will continue to update you on this matter. Please click on this link to read the draft of the consent decree.

With school back in session, the start of fall begins and with this a slew of events. Next week Andersonville Arts Week kicks off. Please come out and enjoy the 16th Annual Andersonville Arts Week from September 12th to the 16th where over 50 local businesses and 100 artists showcase their work. The festival starts off with an expansive Andersonville Farmers Market that will include live performances. Please join me next week in celebrating the rich arts culture we have in our community at the Andersonville Arts Week. Click here for more information on the event.

This weekend there are two important events that help support many in our community, the Greater Chicago Food Depository’s Hunger Walk and Ride for AIDS Chicago. This weekend hundreds of dedicated cyclists will participate in the Ride for AIDS Chicago, a 2-day, 200-mile ride benefiting Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN) and their many programs. This critical event brings together those living with HIV/AIDS, LGBTQ advocates, cyclists, endurance athletes, and everyday folks to raise important funds to support TPAN’s efforts. To learn how you can donate to support this event or be part of the post-ride celebration, click here. Many neighbors in our community will be walking in the Greater Food Depository’s 33rd Hunger Walk on Saturday to promote their initiative to fight hunger in Chicago. Care for Real, our local food pantry fighting hunger provides vital support to so many in our community and sees around 75 new clients each month. Although the registration for the event is closed, you can still support their initiative by donating to Care for Real at https://careforreal.org/donate-2/.

Tomorrow is also the Lakewood Balmoral Annual Front Yard Sale. Join me in finding great deals in the 5200-5500 blocks of Magnolia, Lakewood, and Wayne tomorrow between 9 am and 4 pm. This is a wonderful event with great bargains, food, refreshments and a lot of fun.

ComEd scheduled to start a construction on Hollywood and Sheridan on Tuesday, September 11th. Please expect major traffic delays during peak hours and due to this more traffic time. I have included the ComEd handout with a map on traffic changes near Hollywood and Sheridan.

Our neighborhood lost a great leader for our community and for the Asian-American communities across the city with the loss of Chinese Mutual Aid Association founder, Duc Huang. My deepest condolences go out to his family and friends affected by this tragedy.

Have a great weekend.

Sincerely,
Harry Osterman
Alderman, 48th Ward

ComEd Project Update
Sheridan Road Lane Closure from Hollywood to ArdmoreRepairs of ComEd Equipment and Vaulted Sidewalk Require Closure of One Lane of Traffic on N. Lake Shore Dr. at Sheridan Rd. CDOT today announced that beginning Tuesday, September 18, repair work on electrical equipment housed under a vaulted sidewalk will require the closure of the northern curb and a traffic lane on N. Lake Shore Dr. at Sheridan Rd. to ensure the safety of their workers. As a result, the temporary traffic configuration will not be implemented in the morning. Commuters should expect delays in entering Lake Shore Dr. from the Hollywood/Sheridan intersection, or consider traveling southbound on Sheridan Rd. and entering Lake Shore Dr. at Foster Ave. While this project and the resurfacing project on N. Lake Shore Dr. is ongoing between North Ave. and Monroe St., commuters should strongly consider using public transportation and avoiding Lake Shore Dr. until the construction is complete in early October.

2018 Sewer Lining Program

This past week and in the following weeks, the Department of Water Management is working on a sewer lining project. This project will rehabilitate the sewer in your area without the conventional digging method. The sequence of work is the drainage structures on the curbside will be cleaned and the pipes that are connected to the main sewer will be lined. The main sewer will be cleaned, televised, and lined. After the main sewer is lined, the reinstatement of the house drain services will proceed. No parking signs will be posted in the immediate area, a day before any scheduled work. It will be necessary to close lanes of these streets to ensure safety during work hours. During the main sewer lining work to prevent any odors in your home, the Water Department encourages homeowners to pour two to three cups of water into every floor drain.

A city engineer will be on site during the work to answer any questions from the residents. This project is expected to be completed in late November/early December.

The following streets are scheduled for the sewer lining program:
Thorndale, Greenview to Glenwood
Thome, Greenview to Glenwood
Magnolia, Rosemont to Devon,
Lakewood, Rosemont to Devon
Wayne, Granville to Devon

Please email any questions to harry@48thward.org or call us at (773) 784-5277.
