August 2017 Update
For all the projects listed below, Alderman Joe Moore has requested funding be allocated to these projects.
More Trees for Rogers Park. COMPLETED. Planted 100 trees across the 49th Ward to replace some of those lost in the August 2015 storm.
New Lights around Sullivan and Kilmer Schools. PENDING. Replace the old residential streetlights on the 6600 blocks of Greenview and Bosworth, from Albion to North Shore, with new, brighter streetlights and acorn lights over the sidewalks. Install new flood lights in the alleys adjacent to Kilmer School.
A Chicago Department of Transportation survey found mitigating factors on Greenview and Bosworth that resulted in a large increase in the cost estimate. The original estimate for lights on both streets was $157,200.
Bosworth new estimate is $214,000 from Pratt to Albion: Relocation of wiring for the police surveillance camera, and relocation of a fire alarm for Sullivan High School increased the project cost.
Greenview new estimate is $212,000 from Pratt to Albion: Two fire alarm cables that need to be relocated underground increased the project cost. Also, the parkway around the school is all concrete, which also increased the project cost.
After discussions with Sullivan’s principal and the students who were championing the project, it was determined to install the lights on Bosworth in the front of the school. The PB Leadership Committee agreed and ratified the decision. Alderman Moore approved spending an additional $56,800 from menu money to cover the increased cost.
Improvements at Dubkin, Paschen and Loyola Parks. COMPLETED IN OCTOBER 2016. Installed a concrete entryway at Dubkin Park (located on Ashland between Fargo and Birchwood) to improve access for people with strollers or mobility impairments. Installed a 15-foot fences around the Paschen Park basketball court (located at Lunt and Damen). Installed two chess tables in Loyola Park at Morse Avenue.
