Meeting 2/25 with Vermilion Developers

3901Broadway

For those of you who were unable to attend the last East Lakeview Neighbors meeting, Vermilion developers have agreed to come out to our area again to present their proposal for an 8-story building on the plot of the former Mobil gas station at the corner of W. Sheridan and N. Broadway.  Here are the meeting details:

When:  Thursday, 2/25, 7:00pm
Where:  Gill Park

Someone at the front desk will direct you to the meeting room.  Please consider attending this meeting to learn more about the proposed development, and to voice any concerns you may have.  The 46th Ward Zoning Committee is meeting on 2/29 and Vermilion’s proposal is on their agenda.

Here’s a high level overview of Vermilion’s plans:

8 stories
100 rental units
65 parking spaces
40% 1 BR, 35% studios, 25% 2 BR
Average = 800 sq ft
Retail = 2,200 sq ft (big enough for a coffee shop, nothing more)
Indoor trash room
Construction time = 14 months

Please forward this email to any parties you think may be interested.  Contact ELVN at friends@eastlakeview.org if you have any questions, thank you.

CDOT Announcement from Alderman James Cappleman

Via Alderman James Cappleman, 46th Ward

Each year, the 46th Ward receives $1.32 million to use for infrastructure improvements. This money is spent on items that will last one year or more, and most of it typically goes to street repaving, sidewalk replacements, and street lighting. In 2015, the 19th Police District provided input about the installation of police cameras based on prior drug arrests and feedback from residents attending CAPS meetings. Click here to view how menu funds were used for 2015.

Within the next few months, the Chicago Dept of Transportation (CDOT) will meet with me and provide their suggestions about where infrastructure improvements are needed based on 311 records. They also have information about where anticipated utility work will occur so that we don’t tear up a street twice for repair.

Your Assistance is Needed!

You know the condition of the streets, sidewalks and curbs around your home. When you see something that needs repair, please contact me to include it in our 2016 projects. I’ll combine this information with what we get from CDOT to help decide where to spend our limited funds. Feel free to email me at info@james46.org or call my office at 773-878-4646.
