Do you want zoned parking in our neighborhood?

In light of the increasing traffic to the budding Uptown Entertainment District, the 46th Ward office is asking residents to vote on whether to adopt zoned parking within each block club area.  They are holding a meeting for NUNA’s area on July 22, 2015, from 7:00 – 8:00 pm at Margate Park to discuss this and talk about the voting process.  You can vote at the meeting, by stopping by or calling the 46th ward office at 773.878.4646, or via this online survey until August 1 at 9:00 am.

Notice cleaner streets this week?

Thanks to all who came out in the rain to help spring clean the neighborhood on April 25!  Teams focused on the areas around Bezazian Library and the post office, as well as the parkway garden at Argyle and Broadway.  We also collected a number of books/DVDs and electronics for reuse and recycling.  Even our youngest helpers were in good spirits!
