Dear John,
Have you started your holiday shopping?  The local chambers of commerce are making it extra special to shop in Lake View with various events for the whole family.  Read the details below.
Have you paid your 2006 property taxes?  The 2nd Installments are due on December 3rd.  Check out the property tax appeal workshop you can attend (see left column) for free before then.  Representatives will be on hand to assist you with the appeals paperwork.  Remember you can pay your bill at any Chase bank branch.
Want to volunteer?  We will need help putting up garage numbers this Saturday, December 1st.  See below.
Have a safe and happy holiday season!
Number Up - It's the Law!
Alderman Tom Tunney, CAPS and Triangle Neighbors have teamed up to post numbers on garages in alleys on Saturday, December 1st.  Chapter 10-4 of the Chicago Municipal Code requires everyone to have address numbers 3-6 inches high on both the front and rear of their property.
If you had an emergency at your residence and two officers were dispatched - one to the front and one to the rear, would both officers be able to locate your property quickly?  If the police and other emergency vehicles cannot find you, they can't help you.
This is a FREE program to residents (funding provided by the 44th Ward and CAPS).   We will focus on the garages in the alleys in the south-half of Triangle (Cornelia, Newport, Roscoe, Buckingham, and Aldine).   Numbers are also available at the 44th Ward Offices.
To refuse this FREE service (and risk being ticketed), please call Bennett at the 44th Ward Offices (773 525 6034) with your name and address.  Numbers will be posted on all garages that don't already have them unless you call by this Friday to refuse this FREE service.
If you are interested in helping us post the numbers, we are meeting at Space Park (815-817 W Roscoe) at 12 Noon on Saturday to get supplies.
