I wanted to update the community with the new flyer for the Ravenswood Supportive Living Facility. We are taking waitlist applicants now! Please contact (224) 801-2982 with any inquiries about qualification. We are an age 65 and up community set to open in July!
Concerning the development of 1101 W. Berwyn: Dear Alderman Osterman— The new apartment proposal for the 1101 block of Berwyn is a travesty for our corner of the neighborhood. Replacing this lovely old building will wipe away the history and charm of this corner of Chicago. This has been a thriving place for small businesses for many years with the recessed vintage storefronts and wonderful architecture of this block. What do we get when this is replaced? Another dull, modern apartment building with no street character or presence. I support development for this space, but I STRONGLY support any option to retain the brick facade of the current building and preserve the vintage retail character that makes this stretch of Edgewater a thriving and beautiful place to live. Please please consider this as part of the approval for MCZ Development.
As you are already aware- the Senior Building at 5225 N Kenmore (Kenmore Plaza) has elevators out of order. As of this morning 2 of our 3 elevators are out of service. Many of our residents have serious mobi;ity issues and depend on these elevators. We are having our Tennants Association Election in the building today as well and we anticipate that residents will not be able to vote because of elevators out of service. We can't express how disappointed we are that this problem persists even after reassurances from the Alderman that these elevators will be fixed.
Don't change the name of Lake Shore Drive.
I urge Harry Osterman to vote in favor of expanding and building new low income housing in Chicago

Check out this petition! Let's require IL employers to offer PTO specifically for mental health treatment & recovery. I'm sure we're all feeling the burn out, exhaustion, just utter depression that has crept in because of all we dealt with in 2020. Sign & share and let's help end mental health stigma in IL!

Hi Alderman Osterman, as a resident of edgewater i'm asking that tomorrow you Vote NO on the city budget unless it includes the #TreatmentNotTrauma Amendment by 33rd Ward Alderwoman Rossana Rodríguez , which will take resources from the CPD budget to establish a 211 hotline for mental health emergencies with a non-police social worker response. #TakeBackTheBudget #DefundCPD
As a resident of the 48th Ward, I strongly urge Alderman Osterman to vote NO on the proposed budget because this budget does not Defund CPD and invest in communities. We have a chance to fund communities, not police, and provide relief for the Chicagoans who need and deserve it. As a constituent and voter, I hope you will stand with 87% of the City who responded to the budget survey that it is vital to defund CPD and invest in communities to begin to heal the harm perpetuated by CPD. Now is the chance to stand up and do what’s right. #BootTheBudget #TakeBackTheBudget #DefundCPD
ABSOLUTE LAST CHANCE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE PANDEMIC COOKBOOK! IT GOES OFF TO ITS "CREATIVE TEAM" THIS WEEKEND! NEED ALL RECIPES THIS WEEKEND! In 2007, a group of Ruth’s Listers got together to create a cookbook. These recipes were based on the Meal Train meals that many group members cooked for others when they had a baby, had a medical emergency or had a family loss. People wanted to share these recipes and the stories behind them. We had a block party book release and sold hundreds of copies, with 100% of the proceeds of the sale of this little cookbook going to two local non-profits. So, now let’s fast forward to 2020! During this pandemic, there has been LOTS of cooking and baking (yes, I am talking about the famous “Jens”) going on as we all hunkered down and hung in. We all now have new recipes to share and stories to tell. We also have even greater needs in our community as the pandemic has wreaked havoc on the folk’s livelihoods and produced increased food insecurity. It was just time to create a new Pandemic version of the famous Ruth’s List cookbook and this time 100% of the proceeds will go to our neighborhood’s greatest safety net, Care for Real. To this end, we want all of you to share your recipes and the tales that surround them. Here is what we need to capture: Name of recipe. A brief story on how this recipe became part of your pandemic menus or why it is special to you or your family. Ingredients. Instructions on how you make it. Approximate preparation time. A bit of information of what beverage or libation (if that is your thing) this meal goes best with. If this originally came from a cookbook, magazine, or publication, please include a citation so we can give them kudos. Submitted by. These recipes can be for anything, including cocktails (which is encouraged). If they are from a publication of any kind, please share where you got it from so we can credit them accordingly. Recipes can come by whatever word processing means you have. We hope to get this printed by Christmas (it really does make a fantastic gift) so our deadline for recipes is Monday, November 9 at 5PM. You can email your recipes to [email protected]. All questions can be directed to Ann Casey at 773-391-9998 or Kim Cavitt at 773-960-6625. Once the books are printed, we will reach back and tell you where and how to purchase them.
