Dear John,
 

Our community experienced one of the most severe storms in recent memory last week.  We lost many beautiful old trees, power and cable lines are down. Even our own Space Park (815-817 W Roscoe) suffered some damage. 

The 44th Ward Aldermanic office is working closely with city departments and utilities to restore services in our area.  Given the severe nature of the storm we are very fortunate to have no fatalities and only a few minor injuries reported.  City-wide early reported numbers are:
  • Tree Emergencies (Damage to Trees in Public Way, Tree Limbs): 3294
  • Traffic Lights Out: 224
  • Light Pole Damage (Damage to City Street Lights): 120
  • Wires Down (Wires to City Light Poles or Street Lights/Not Utility Co Wires): 243

You can help greatly by clearing the leaves, twigs and small branches that may have fallen on your parkways, sidewalks and yards.  This debris can easily clog up our catch basins and cause additional flooding issues.

Please avoid all down utility lines. 

Please call 311 or the Alderman's office (773.525.6034) with and NEW damage or issues.  They'll continue to track all calls received and monitor the restoration and clean up in our ward.

We hope to see you at our two Space Park clean-up's in September (22nd and 29th - both at 11AM).  For more details and to learn the latest about October's 11th Annual Halloween parade, come to our TN meeting on Wednesday, September 12th at 7PM at the LVCC Office.

Halloween Parade 2007 
Halloween 2007
 
The Magic of Halloween descends on north Halsted Street this Wednesday, October 31, 2007.  You'll see wizards, witches and dragons at the 11th Annual North Halsted Costume Parade sponored by Northalsted Area Merchants Association. 
 
The parade is completely free and all the sponsorship proceeds benefit the construction of Space Park (815-817 W Roscoe). 
 
The parade will march along Chicago's hottest entertainment street (Halsted from Belmont to Cornelia) and is one of the city's most renowned Halloween events.  The parade draws thousands of spectators and is a creative, fun and entertaining event for the community.  As in past years, we expect to see costumes from garish to ghoulish worn by adults, pets, and kids.  The costume contest has been a huge success and we anticipate imaginations to run wild again this year.
 
Sponsors are donating cash and prizes.  Everyone is welcome to participate in the parade.  New this year, judges will select a handful of top entries in various categories for the audience to vote on the winner. 
 
To get involved in the planning of this event, come to our next planning meeting on Wednesday, August 29th at 6PM at Roscoe's.   Volunteers and sponsors welcome.
