Hi Ann,

Just a call out regarding the widening of Callan. Not that I'm at all apposed to the project but I do have concerns regarding our buildings front drive. Our building is very unique in design with a front driveway with two parking spots. Vehicles will need enough swing at the end of the drive to back out. Does the project plan include yellow restricted parking paint on both sides of the drive? If so, how many feet? Also, will there be a "do not block driveway" sign installed? Building is 125-127.. Thanks!!

 Steve, you have no idea how much it helped to have you, Connie Matt and the others show up in person or write an email had to do with this passing. This was really important while I provided the leadership, You confirm the importance of this issue.

Ann, thank you very much for getting the Callan Avenue widening developed and approved!!! I'm very excited that we will soon have some parking relief in the neighborhood! Your help with this is very much appreciated :-) Thanks again!

Thank you for coordinating the dog meeting last week, it was very informative. It was discussed that dog bites are covered under the family liability coverage of a homeowners/renters policy, but many insurance carriers have breed restrictions. I work for Allstate insurance, and I checked with our underwriting department, to confirm, Allstate does not have any dog breed restrictions! I know there are other carriers who do not restrict, so don't feel trapped, you can shop your insurance!

 I can assure the good people of the ninth Ward and the sixth Ward that I would never vote against a public works project that the residents in that Ward needed regardless.

I can assure all of you that no member of our staff said, "oh Alderman Rainey, we want to move your project on Callan up a year."

The only reason widening Callan was on anybody's radar screen or was on any agenda was because I was relentless in insisting that it was an absolutely necessary project for livability in the eighth Ward.

 Any Alderman in any Ward can do the same for any constituent need. I found the opposition to this project truly offensive and you should too.

Apologies, made typo in last post. Fleming, Suffredin, and Wilson (not Fisk) voted no last night on Callan project.

Good news- "MISSING JUVENILE LOCATED

The previously reported missing 17 year old juvenile, Jackson J. Monte, that was reported missing on July 28, 2017 has been located. Thank you for your assistance in this investigation. Please cancel the lookout for the juvenile."

Karen - SWANCC has weekly dropoffs in their Glenview transfer station. Well organized and they do the heavy lifting. Slightly hard to find - easy to miss access road / drive way. Contact me directly for more details if needed.

I am ecstatic over the Callan Ave approval, went last night for the first time because it really has been hell dealing with parking over the last several years. Passed 6-3! Please note Suffredin, Fleming, and Fisk voted no. Ugh. Thank you to the 3 ppl who talked during public comment that really made a big impact. I doubt it would've passed else wise. And thank you Ann!!

 Karen, if you go to swancc.org you can find the dropoff locations for northern Cook County.

Lunch break...two items

Great news on getting more parking for those who live on and very near Callan. Thanks to Ann for taking the steps to get it considered.

I think that someone posted on this previously but I could not find it. Where can I recycle an older 16-inch television set with a tube? Last one in the house--still works great but updated to something a little bigger after 20 years.

Done some checking already. Goodwill does not take them as a donation. Best Buy does not accept TVs in Illinois. I spent lots of time on the phone with the Skokie Walmart last night, getting transferred and transferred again. Never got my question answered.

The Evanston Police Department is currently seeking the public’s help in a reported missing juvenile investigation. The missing juvenile, Jackson J. Monte, age 17, left his residence in the 1800 block of Laurel Avenue on July 28, 2017.

From the information we have regarding the incident at Howard and Chicago Avenue, I'd like to share the following:

There were numerous witnesses at the scene of the shooting early this morning. All including the victim's wife are being very cooperative. None are Evanston residents. 

We are working very closely with our Chicago and regional law enforcement partners and hope to bring a quick resolution to this case. It should be noted that there is no apparent connection to any ongoing Chicago area gang conflict. This tragic event was an isolated incident.

Our thoughts go out to the victim's family.

Thanks Ann! I will be there! Just looked up the agenda, I assume it's during the "Public Comment" agenda item where a resident like myself would speak to the strong need of additional parking? I've never been to a City Council meeting before so I just want to make sure I'm helping in a way that's most effective. Thanks again!

Northbound Chicago Avenue at the corner of Howard/Chicago is closed now with multiple police units still investigating- looks like the lot at that corner and some of the sidewalk is also closed off. Ann- any info on this event?

Ann, what is the latest on the proposal to widen Callan Avenue to increase parking? Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make last week's meeting but I would like to do whatever I can to help this proposal move forward. More parking is badly needed in our neighborhood and that could really help. Thanks!

 Avoid Howard St from Chicago Avenue to Custer. Multiple law enforcement agencies on scene investigating a shooting. All buses are being rerouted.

Sam, glad that you brought it up. A net would enhance safety on Austin Street. A child or adult running into the street to retrieve a soccer ball there could be hit by a passing car.
