 Jeri I asked public works to take a look at your street this morning and they agreed with me that it needed more than Pot hole patch. A sign will go up on your street today saying that you are going to have skate work done. A sign will go up on your street today saying that you are going to have Street work done between May 9 and May 11.

Jeri, The asphalt plants are open now and we are beginning the process of repairing the streets citywide. I will get the timeframe for your street.

How do we find out if streets are scheduled for pothole repair? The cul de sac west of Barton & east of Asbury is in desperate need

 You got it!

 I'm not even sure what an outdoor ashtray looks like these days but I will make sure one shows up in that area.

Hi Alderman Rainey,

I think it would be really nice to have an outdoor ashtray on the corner of Callan and Howard near the Peckish Pig. I've seen "patrons" out there smoking and the accumulation of cigarette butts on the ground and grass over there is deplorable. I began noticing the problem in recent weeks (I take the 201 to and from NU everyday and I've lived at 143 Callan for three years). Sometimes it looks as though someone just sweeps the butts into the alley way. I would like the animals who graze on the grass-walk and the children whom play in that alley way to be considered. Thank you!

It's supposedly a very nice patching job, don't believe they'll be any work on the speed humps but I will ask tomorrow.

Fantastic news that they are going to fix Austin. Do you know if they are going to also refurbish the speedbumps perhaps make them a little bit higher? Thank you so much for the update.

 Austin signage update:

Alderman Rainey,
The signs on Austin are being taken down and left in a pile so the contractor can correct them. The correct dates will read; work starting Monday May 9th with work ending May 11th. They seem to have gotten the 11th right but screwed up on the 9th.
Once the actual work is done all signs will be removed and the street will be swept.
Work is expected to start on the 9th and weather depending may be done on the 9th as well.

thanks, Sam - this is in error. Correction on the way if not already. Good news is we are fixing the street. Ordinance and contract require 48 hour notice.

This sign just went up today on the 1000 block of Austin. Would be nice if residents got a bit more of a warning.

Thanks Rachel, I react quickly but others do the heavy lifting - thanks to our great staff.

To all: be just like Rachel, clean up after your pet. Thank you.

Ann, I forgot that I had suggested a trash can on Brummell. So as I walked along today with a full poop bag I was surprised to see it. And it was half full with poop bags! You are just the best !!!! And you work so fast!

I saw below the notice about Dave's Italian Kitchen closing. Maybe it was already mentioned but there's supposed to be a new smaller one up on Noyes.


Never thought Dave's was the same after getting kicked out of the old space on Church (?), maybe this new smaller version will feel more right.

Also for Cajun fans there's supposed to be a replacement in the old Dixie Kitchen space.


Now if we could only get the Pine Yard back. Miss those lunch specials, both at the old spot and burned-down location.

The same way one does when a smaller gap is filled with a motorcycle. Carefully.

My preference is to park normally, but when there half-spaces between several vehicles in a row and no full spaces anywhere, you do what you must.

So how are cars supposed to exit from their parking spots if there is another one wedged in the middle? I can only imagine the law suites that would follow if damages were to occur.

Free Jazz Big Band concert tomorrow night at 7 p.m. at the Evanston Township High School auditorium, 1600 Dodge Avenue. These high-quality concerts showcase some of the talented musicians at the school.

The concert features ETHS’s three jazz bands. The bands are modeled after the great swing bands of the 1930s and 1940s with the four traditional big-band sections: saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and rhythm.

The auditorium is wheelchair accessible. Free parking in the Dodge Avenue lot, directly across from the auditorium entrance.

That's it exactly! The more of us in those tiny cars, the easier the parking will be!

Judy I'm certain because we are so green that this would be allowed. If anyone gives you a hard time, let me know. We will get a law passed to cover you.

 Thanks Hank this is great.

 That is exactly what I thought Judy meant. 😀

Is this what you mean❓

 Judy if the spaces are unmarked – is they are against the curb in residential neighborhoods, why would you even be a question? Now if you are talking about parallel parking at meters, and you want to fit in your little car, there is an issue

No, That would take up MORE space, which I do not wish to do. I am wanting to park perpendicularly to the street when the space is too tight to allow me to easily park parallel to the street.

@EvanstonPD: Officers recover a handgun, cannabis, and drug paraphernalia during an investigative stop, 1100 block of Dewey. https://t.co/9VLVHVKGrX/s/gcjC

Thank you EPD another gun off the street.

 Judith I'm trying to see this in my mind's eye.

 If your car is small like a smart car would your car fit in the remaining space? i'm thinking you're describing diagonal parking into the available parallel spot.
