A recap of the votes from Monday’s Zoning & Development meeting on the proposal for the new development at Montrose and Clarendon.3 members voted “yes” and 27 voted “no”, which means the lack of support for this project is quite clear. However, at least 15 members expressed that they would consider changing their votes based on specific issues being addressed and/or expressed a desire to have more opportunity for review and information.The alderman’s office summarized the main suggestions/concerns from the Committee’s feedback for Sedgwick at the time that the Alderman informed them that the committee voted “no.” He told them that he stands by the decision of the committee. Sedgwick responded by sending the following proposed changes:…See More

via Ward Remap.

Greetings! Today I voted yes for the “For A Better Chicago” remap of the 50 wards in the Cityof Chicago. The 41 “yes” votes in City Council mean that we received the minimum required number of votes to avoid a City-wide referendum. With the new addition of the Uptown Theatre, Annoyance Theater, and the historic Green Mill within the 46th Ward, I will have the ability to better coordinate efforts to make the Entertainment District a destination point for the entire Chicago metropolitan area. The 46th Ward already includes the Aragon Ballroom and the Riviera Theatre. My goal for the process was to avoid gerrymandering and to protect the many different neighborhoods that make up Chicago. Although some of this did take place, I believe the passage of this map will discourage a very costly city referendum and a lawsuit that could cost the City around $70 million. This money is better used for libraries, schools, health care, parks, and the police. It is still possible that a group could contest this map, but with the majority of aldermen voting in favor, it is unlikely a challenge would be successful. This was the one map that was supported by all aldermen including those that represent African-American and Latino communities.

Dear Friend, ,

Last night, just before midnight, two Uptown men were shot west of Truman College at 1255 West Wilson. Soon after, at approximately 12:30AM, another man from the south side of the city was shot near Uplift High School.   The police believe these shootings are part of the same incident and believe they are gang-related. At this time, no one has been arrested.


The incident is still under investigation with Area 3 Detectives. Police presence has been increased in the area.


Positive loitering will occur tomorrow night, Friday, July 29, 2011, at 7:00 PM, at the corner of Wilson and Hazel. We will then walk west to Wilson and Magnolia. Please support our neighborhood by attending this event.






Signature James

Alderman James Cappleman
