Berteau Neighborhood Greenway proposal.

Dear neighbors of Graceland West,

 

Thank you for your input so far regarding the Berteau Neighborhood Greenway proposal. CDOT is currently working on redesigning many elements of the initial proposal. We are organizing a meeting to be held with the residents of your area to present updated design alternatives, solicit more feedback, and answer any additional questions.

 

We are planning the meeting for Thursday April 5, 2012 location is to be announced.

 

Lastly, thank you for your patience as we try to improve our lines of communication with the local neighborhood organizations. If you use e-mail, please sign up for our weekly newsletter at www.chicago47.org.

 

Best regards,

Gil Munoz, R.I.P.

Dear Neighbors:
With great sadness we announce that Gil Munoz has passed away. About three weeks ago Gil suffered a hemorrhagic stroke, on Saturday morning at 2:25 AM he passed away. Gil was a long term resident of Graceland West and even though he moved about six years ago he still enjoyed visiting the neighbors and participating on our events. He will be greatly missed. Should you want to pay last respects to Gil, visitation is at Nelson Funeral Home, 5149 N. Asland on Tuesday, March 13, from 3PM to 9PM. A memorial service will be held at Nelson on Wednesday, March 14 at 11AM.
May he rest in peace.

Gil, doing what he did best!

Comments Off on Chicago bike route system Greenway Project Update

Chicago bike route system Greenway Project Update

Berteau Avenue between Clark and Lincoln is scheduled to become part of the Chicago bike route system, it will also be known as a Greenway. To follow is a recap of the March 6 meeting.
We were told that the plans for the proposed Greenway are not finalized. Bill Higgins, Program Analyst and Coordinator for Alderman Pawar, will be meeting with CDOT (Chicago Department of Transportation) this week for an update on the project and express neighbor’s concern. Alderman Pawar spoke about what mitigated this greenway/bike path stating that many neighbors complained about speeding traffic on Berteau and the danger it poses. Again emphasizing that final plans were not complete and that additional neighborhood meetings would be held before designs are finalized. To follow is a timeline for this project.
March 2012: Public input from neighborhood organizations and transportation committee
Late March 2012: Input analysis and redesign
April 2012: Public Meeting
April 2012 to May 2012: Additional Input analysis and design
Late May Early June 2012: Final Engineering
Late June to July 2012: Construction
We are coordinating a meeting for Graceland West and Alderman Pawar’s office to address GWCA concerns. We hope to announce a date and location soon. Stay tuned for more.
