My Ward Service Office staff and I have just completed our annual infrastructure assessment of the 49th Ward and submitted our menu of infrastructure improvements for 2007 to the City of Chicago. Thank you to the many community residents, block clubs and neighborhood leaders who assisted in this effort by reporting needs in their areas.
We now have an interactive map on my website that shows new sidewalks, alleys, curbs, streetlights, speed humps, street resurfacing and more. We have uploaded those improvements completed over the last four years and those slated for this summer and fall.
We hope this will be a useful tool for you so that you can anticipate any construction that may occur near your home.
My staff and I walk and drive every street and alley each year as part of this assessment. But nobody knows the needs of your block more than the people who live there. If your block has a particular need that is not addressed in our 2007 plan, please contact me so we can evaluate it and hopefully add it to the queue for 2007 or 2008.
Very truly yours,
