Also The Glenwood, the new gay bar on glenwood is
expanding into the space next door, it was cool as a small intimate bar,
but its nice to see more retail space being used for something.

Hotei art gallery failed and there is a rather bleak, dreary store
in one half with womens clothes, but perhaps it will do okay
and eventually spiff up a bit.

More graffitti in the neigborhood of late,
on the building by lunt and glenwood,

dollar signs in the graffitti, so i guess the taggers are mad, that
someone is fixing up the buildings and such.

Vtone on Jarvis is now open? New exercise equipement is inside
and it looks nice. "Temper" was tagged on the windows ofcourse.

Also the Mexican grocery store on morse is getting a new sign

Farmers Market for Morse?

From Rogerspark.com

Dear Neighbor,

In the spring of 2010 we will launch a seasonal weekly market at Morse and Glenwood, within the Glenwood Avenue Arts District and the Clark/Morse/Glenwood SSA.

We invite interested residents, organizations and businesses to participate in making this a terrific success for our community. We don't want to compete with local businesses, but rather invite them to participate and use this vehicle to attract new customers to their establishments. We want to showcase our amazing community.


Our hope is to create an international style market that features farmers' produce and other local goods. We hope to feature local artists and provide activities for children and families. A "Chef's Tent" will offer cooking demonstrations by our local restauranteurs and other Chicago area chefs who specialize in using local, seasonal, organic ingredients.

For information on how you can get involved, contact [email protected] or visit our Ning group at www.glenwoodsundaymarket.ning.com.

We are holding our first major fundraiser: “MARKET DAZED” A taste of things to come! Sunday, October 25th from 2-5 pm in the space south of and adjacent to THE GLENWOOD BAR. $35 in advance. $40 at the door.

Loyola ends Crown Center Gallery

Staff Editorial
By Phoenix Editorial Board
Share this article Published: Tuesday, October 27, 2009
Miles Wisniewski

Art is dead — With no Crown Center Gallery and limited Mundelein renovations, the future of the Fine Arts program is questionable.
Take some time and visit the Crown Center Gallery — it may be gone before you know it.

As reported in our cover story this week, the number of floors in Damen Hall were miscounted, and consequently there is no longer enough space on campus to absorb several classrooms and offices after Damen is torn down in the summer of 2010. As a result, Loyola has decided to turn the Crown Center into a building solely for the Humanities department. Starting in January 2010, what is now the Crown Center student gallery will be converted into a seminar room, for the Humanities Department faculty.

Although the closing of the Crown Center gallery is the most immediate issue for the department, other problems are looming: Due to insufficient funds, some of the renovations in Mundelein Center, including a new gallery space and theater, have been put on hold until at least 2016. And since Mullady Theatre will be demolished within the next four years, it is possible Loyola will lack a theater in addition to a gallery. University plans to build a new café in Mundelein, however, remain underway.

And if you thought these fine arts fiascos were only student problems, think again. Purchased in part with TIF grants from Rogers Park taxpayers, both the Crown Center gallery and the new Mundelein building are meant to be used, in part, as a community resource — community members attend plays and exhibits, and both buildings serve as a source of art appreciation for Rogers Park. With no Crown Center Gallery and Mundelein’s renovation hanging precariously in limbo, there are virtually no community resources to speak of. Rogers Park residents have paid for a student café in a tax-exempt building on Loyola’s private property.

Each alderman gets a million dollar per year to spend

Rogers Park Residents to Vote on Ward Budget
Produced by City Room on Wednesday, October 28, 2009

A night time look into Ald. Joe Moore's 49th Ward. (WBEZ/Kate Gardiner)
Residents of Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood will get to decide what's fixed first in their neighborhood next year. That's according to Ald. Joe Moore (49th).

Moore says he's going to let residents vote on how to spend more than one million dollars of discretionary money next summer. He says he thinks it'll help educate his neighborhood about the budget process.
MOORE: I think one of the things that people will find out is that while $1 million sounds like a lot of money, it doesn't pay for a whole lot, but it certainly can make a significant impact on the quality of life in the neighborhood.

Moore says he'll work with Rogers Park residents to come up with a list of projects.
Each alderman gets about $1.3 million to spend on his or her ward as they see fit.

If the program is successful, Moore says he'll try to convince other members of the city council to do the same thing.

New Lease on Life

This past week a mysterious occurence
in the heart of Rogers Park.

Watch this Space signs were pasted on top of
the former Morse Theatre's signage.

Nice to see some activity on this place
especially after all the work that took
place here and the recovery after the arson fire.

6 million dollars was put into this project
so something great is bound to happen here.

Will let you know as soon as i find out
whats going on.

On the pritzkers website there is talk of
Mayne Stage and Act One Café is currently under development in Rogers Park.
Perhaps this is what is going to fill the space at Morse Theatre

...officials are to announce plans to remake campus life over the next five years. According to details revealed to the Tribune, the university will build a new student union, expand the recreation building and transform the athletics center from what looks like a high school gym into a modern college arena...

...The $100 million project, to be completed by 2015, imagines a connected complex of five new or renovated buildings on the northwest section of the Rogers Park campus: a three-story intercollegiate athletics center, a renovated Gentile Center for the Ramblers, a 70,000-square-foot student union, an expanded Halas recreation center and a repurposed Centennial Forum, which will include the bookstore, alumni center, and an outdoor adventure program...

Morse and Glenwood to Receive Facelift This Year

Morse and Glenwood to Receive Facelift This Year
Posted by Charlie on March 19, 2010
Dear Neighbor,

I’m pleased to report that construction will begin this spring on the long-awaited Morse-Glenwood streetscape project. The project encompasses Morse Avenue from Ashland to Wayne and Glenwood Avenue from Lunt to Farwell on both sides of the elevated tracks.

I am hosting a community meeting with the Rogers Park Business Alliance to present the plans and outline the construction schedule. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 24th, 7:00 p.m. at the United Church of Rogers Park, 1545 W. Morse, 3rd Floor. Representatives of the City of Chicago Department of Transportation will be on hand to answer your questions.

New streetlights, sidewalks and planter boxes will grace Morse and Glenwood. In addition, Morse Avenue will be resurfaced and the sidewalks on Glenwood will be widened for greater pedestrian access. The brick pavers that now exist on the western side of Glenwood will remain in the traffic lanes.

The $4 million streetscape is funded by $1.6 million in city of Chicago funds and $2.4 million in federal funds secured by Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky.

Community residents were instrumental in selecting the streetscape design and elements. I would like to thank the volunteers of the Morse Avenue Streetscape Committee, who worked tirelessly on this project, as well as all the neighborhood residents who attended community meetings to offer their input.

This has been a very long process, made even longer by the reviewing requirements that came attached with the federal dollars. But our patience will be rewarded by this summer’s end with a new and more appealing appearance for both Morse and Glenwood.

Please don’t hesitate to contact my office if you have any questions. You may reply to this e-mail or call my office at 773-338-5796.

Sincerely,
Joe Moore

Multi-use Midrise building for Howard Street

An article printed in the News-star paper
March 10-16
describes a good size building that may go up 1557-61 w Howard st.

couldnt find the article online so i will type out the important details

there was a community meeting feb 22nd at Willye B White Park Fieldhouse
at 1610 w Howard st. to detail a proposed zoning change.

$ 9 million dollar plan for SEVEN story multipurpose building with 22,500 sq ft of retail space, 60-75 parking spot on the lower floors, a boys and girls club in the middle levels, and approx 60 residential units above.

The site is zoned B3-3 and would need to be changed to a B3-5 to allow this development at the site of the Old Wisdom Bridge Theater and the former DevCorp North Office building.

The developers have talked about wanting to incorporate a theater into the building as well. They are shooting for a 2012 start date.
Wow thats a couple years off. But hey it would be worth the wait.

The rendering shows a building with a three story base, half of the building continues up to the full 7 stories with glassy facade for the top 4 floors
and the rendering shows a marquee saying the wisdom bridge theater

Some people are mad that the developers arent planning on saving the limestone facade of the old wisdom bridge building,
which is a pretty cool building, and i can believe it has sat vacant and unused for so long.

The developers are Rich Aronson and Scott Sinar.

^ If you're talking about the building at the SE corner of Howard and Chicago, then yeah, I agree with the NIMBY's. What a crock of shit to demo a 6 story gem like that just to build a structure only 1 floor higher, especially with a vacant lot just next door.

Screw their zoning change
