The community met, committees were formed and spent 5 months working on their top proposals. There were 2 community meetings presenting ALL the proposals from the committees, and now it’s up to you! Starting Saturday, April 27th there will be Early Voting for your top choices on how to spend the 46th Ward’s discretionary funds. Anyone 16 years and older who lives within the 46th Ward boundaries is eligible to vote. You can vote for your top six (6) projects. The projects getting the most votes will be funded, and the projects will be completed in order until the money runs out. Voting options are as follows:

Early Voting

(Ward Office, 4544 North Broadway)

Saturday April 27

9am – 12pm

Monday, April 29 – Friday May 3

9am – 5pm

Voting Assembly

Uplift Community High School, 900 West Wilson)

Saturday May 4

9am – 2pm

You can vote on safety and lighting projects, walkability and biking projects, beautification and public art projects, public information projects and more. The proposals run the gamut from practical projects like adding security cameras for local crime hot spots to a grand proposal to make a plaza out of the Sheridan/Montrose/Broadway intersection. You can view the projects at the Ward office (including a nifty diarama), or on-line at http://pbchicago.org/.46th-ward.html. Again, you have 6 votes (but they must be for different projects, not 6 for 1).

There will be a new Sunnyside entrance/exit in the rehabbed el station. Graceland-Wilson Block Club has been communicating with the CTA about their plans. Here is a condensed version of their latest conversation:

GW: Are there plans to include a new pedestrian pathway from the Sunnyside station to Montrose adjacent to the alley?

CTA: The official pedestrian path to Montrose is on Broadway. An additional path for those traveling west is through Truman College along Sunnyside to Racine.

GW: The current configuration under the el tracks is not pedestrian friendly. How will this space be designed?

CTA: The parking that is not under a long term lease will be converted to a park and ride lot for CTA customers. The parking lot north of Sunnyside (by Aldi’s) will be reconstructed to include a pedestrian island from the Sunnyside entry to the Truman College pathway on the north side of their parking garage. The area under the el at Wilson will be partitioned with ornamental iron fencing detouring people from cutting through this area. The new station will have ample lighting and cameras below the new track structure between Sunnyside and Wilson.

GW: What other depts are working on design elements?

CTA: CDOT will have a streetscape program that will include adding bike lanes to Broadway and add some landscaping in the near future (when Wilson is complete). CTA will also have art displayed at both the main Station at Wilson and at the Sunnyside Auxiliary entry.

Osterman’s CTA meeting last night about the Red Line improvements in progress and in store, and comes away with the news that — while the station work will most probably be on schedule — the extra work viaducts and eliminating slow zones will take a little longer.
