Rumors

Public Aid Office - A vicious rumor that started up regarding 111th and Kedzie. Along with the Moo and Oink. We have not seen anything that comes close to either of them going into any space next to the Walgreens on 111th and Kedzie. If a public aid office ever went into a space at 111th and Kedzie, this neighborhood would be done for. Our politicians may be dumb, but we do not believe they are that dumb. (Maybe we are underestimating them) One commentor mentioned writing the ward office and got a response that no public aid office is being placed there. Another mentioned a Dunkin Donuts being put there. Those are better rumors.

Green Building - This rumor we cannot confirm or deny. What the hell is the green building for? Is it residential? If so, is it going to be required to have low income housing in it? Who is building that building? It is obvious that it isn't being built by anyone in Mt. Greenwood. The address for the builders is somewhere way easy of here. That alone concerns us that the owner is from way east of here. We hope we are way wrong on this, but we want to know the intentions of that building. Not to mention we want it done. It kind of looks like an eyesore in its current state.

Are there other buildings in the neighborhoods that have people a little concerned? Any other rumors out there?

The building in the 11100 block of S. Kedzie is being built by the business next door. i think it is home nursing or something like that.

Rugai has been very quiet on that building, which as a very close neighbot worries me.

That green building is going to be inhabited by section 8 residents. Nobody could afford the type of construction techniques that it takes to build it. The price alone to build it alone is way to high for this area.
Everytime new construction is being built a developer will put up a sign stating what will be available and at what price. All I have seen there is a sign that its "green".
I believe that it is being built with federal dollars for a Green initiative.
I call it another backdoor way of trying to integrate a neighborhood just like a "charter ag school" that most of the people who live in Mt. Greenwood can't even send their kid.

If it was a nursing home then it would say that its a nursing home. It would also be that smallest nursing home that I have ever seen and not even worth the price of "green" construction.

But that size building is not for a business solely. Is it going to be a nursing home, a senior home??

perhaps they will put the Moo and Oink and the public aid office in the same building to make it more convient for the locals, also a irish themed bar next to it would be nice.

OT
The apartments on 111th just east of the tracks are becoming worrisome. I saw a bunch of ghetto looking folks sitting on the stoop the other night. And tonight I saw a white guy wasted out of his mind walking down the block with a dude holding him up by the neck and talking to him. Whatever's going on there it ain't good.

Looking at the construction used on the "green building" its clear that city or federal money or tax breaks are involved. Good luck trying to get an answer from the ward office.

That "green" building is in no way a nursing/senior home! Look at the ghetto rats builing it. I have yet to see ONE white person working on it and it's being funded by a ghetto bank!
To me it's obvious what's going in there!

How about some of you "we heards" and "i thinks" find out what is really going in there. Bunch of Fear mongers.

And how do you propose that people find out what is going in there? Many people have contacted the ward office for answers and have been ignored. That in itself is a bad omen, they are withholding info because they know the back lash they will encounter before the building is completed!

I think post number two clarifies post number one. Don't you.

The ward office doesn't answer your questions, get it?

nd ask fran or Rugai in front of everyone. Thats what I did when it came to the rumors aboutt he Public Aide office. I was told at no point is a public aide office opening in the 19th ward and the old Walgreens is being torn down.

Anonymous said...

We talked to the guys working on that green building and they claimed it was a private doctor's office.


One of the first rumors about that place was that it was going to be a methadone clinic.

Rest assured, that, or anything similar, will never be allowed to exist in this neighborhood...Regardless of what rugai and her cronies want.

You know, groveling to your neighbors worrying about a 'criminal element' isn't any more effective on the internet than it is in person.

I'm a kid of the area, and sometimes you all can still get a chuckle out of me - the strangest thing about Beverly/Mt. Greenwood as opposed to a suburb is your mental preparation for a "race war" - your kids are actually worse than the criminal element, so many of you shrug at the crap they pull. They think its OK to be a scumbag, so as you don't seem to look like one. It's a perverse quirk here that I can't shake.

I'm here to ask a question - in all honesty, what do you think is the future demography of this area?

I think it is connected to the Home Care business directly to the north.

Anyone in Mount Greenwood whose kid can't get into the Ag School has a kid with low test scores. If you want your kid to go to that school, lay the groundwork.

Off topic. I called 911 this afternoon after watching gang bangers smoke weed in their car in front of my house. The pathetic zone 9 dispatcher waited 23 minutes to read out the job. Oh and 2211 and 2212 and tact cars were all available the whole time.

Quit being a coward. Confront them. I do. It is still legal in the State of Illinois to Possess of Firearm on your property. Stop at the sidewalk with your 12ga and tell them to take off.
