Edgewater Glen Spring Plant Swap Canceled

As the weather is finally starting to warm up & we think about our outdoor spaces, EGA must, unfortunately, cancel our upcoming Spring Plant Swap scheduled for Saturday, May 23rd due to virus concerns.

We usually have a Fall Plant Swap sometime in mid-to-late September and we’ll keep you posted if we schedule this event.

The fate of the Annual Garden Walk currently scheduled for July 12th is still uncertain. We will finalize the decision regarding this event at the June 1st EGA Board Meeting and send an update.

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.

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.
