Edgewater Glen Community Response to COVID-19

Dear Neighbors,

As we navigate the COVID-19 crisis, we are working with Alderman Osterman’s Community Response Team to reach out to our elderly and disabled neighbors to ensure they have all they need. Please take a moment to reach out (via phone or email) to see if an elderly or disabled neighbor needs some help — a run to the pharmacy, a grocery run, etc.

In the coming days, the Alderman’s Office expects to have an outreach strategy in place and will be sharing more information.

Please see the information below.

This Year’s All Edgewater Yard Sale will be Saturday, June 6th, 2020


Mark your calendar! This year’s All Edgewater Yard Sale will be Saturday, June 6th, 2020.

This special event helps to bring us together as neighbors, not to mention an opportunity to raise a little cash from those unwanted items. Other neighborhoods around us in Edgewater participate in this event, creating a synergy that maximizes advertising and promotion for the neighborhood-wide community event.

It’s typically held on the first Saturday of June, rain or shine. Participants can choose to set up shop in their front yards or in the alley, although the front yards seem to get more traffic. A fee is required which goes toward obtaining the necessary City of Chicago license and advertising costs.

Sign-up details will be announced in the spring.

Meetings to Discuss Proposed Traffic Changes to Broadway & Sheridan (Oct. 30th & Nov. 2nd)

The Illinois Dept. of Transportation (IDOT) and the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) have been leading a study to improve North Lake Shore Drive (NLSD) and the adjacent park trails for the past several years. As part of this study, CDOT reviewed traffic patterns on Sheridan and Broadway north of Bryn Mawr up to Devon as these areas receive high volumes of traffic and are critical points in our community.

On Wednesday, October 30th at 6:30 pm at the Broadway Armory, 5917 N. Broadway, and at 10am Sat. Nov. 2nd at St. Andrew Greek Church, 5649 N. Sheridan Rd, CDOT will review and provide feedback on proposed alternatives for new traffic plans. The meeting formats for both meetings will be the same, including a presentation and workshop.

As our quality of life in Edgewater Glen is greatly impacted by the amount of car traffic on Broadway, we strongly encourage residents to attend one of these meetings.
