The 2017 Edgewater Glen Spring Plant Swap Will Be Saturday, May 27th

The 2017 Spring Plant Swap will be held Saturday, May 27 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, weather permitting, in the back yard at 1420 W. Glenlake. This is a great time to divide & transplant perennials like hostas, ferns, ornamental grasses, or any other plants you’d like to share. Gardening paraphernalia is welcome too. Even if you don’t have anything to share, come & meet your gardening neighbors. We usually have leftovers that need a home. For more info contact Kim Kaulas at kaulas@rcn.com or 773-368-3949.

There will be an opportunity to review the revised redevelopment plans for 6145 N. Broadway (Superior Car Wash) this Saturday, January 28th at Ethiopian Diamond.

“This Saturday, January 28, from 11 am to 3 pm at Ethiopian Diamond, 6120 N. Broadway, there will be an open house to review revised plans for a development at 6145 N. Broadway. The development team for this project has had a number of community meetings about this project in recent months. Based on feedback from the local residents and myself about the density of the project, they have revised the plan to reduce the number of floors from seven to six and reduce the number of units from 187 to 105. The unit makeup of the building will also change to reduce the number of studios and will add a higher percentage of one- and two-bedroom units. The parking spaces for the building will go from 60 spaces to 45 and 10% of the units will remain affordable.

I encourage you to stop by the open house to review the revised plan, and share your thoughts with the development team. There will be a future community meeting about this project and I will keep you informed of the date and time of the meeting.” – Alderman Osterman
