RP1000 Q & A

This one came from the RP1000 email address: BillMorton.RogersPark@gmail.com .


"Bill,I recently saw your blog and was fascinated. An old friend of mine supposedly lives at 2350 W Greenleaf in this neighborhood. What kind of area is this? Is it clean/safe?

Thanks for your time and kind consideration; I do appreciate it!

Cordially, N"



N,

I didn't find police reports specifically for the block of 2300 W. Greenleaf. I'll let you know when I have more information for you.

The Dark Side to Development

Sam Russo said:

"One other thing: There is a dark side to development. Some developers obtained financing yet never moved ahead on projects, leaving vacant, dilapidated buildings in their wake. Some new construction increases density yet doesn't include adequate parking, even though parking is already a huge problem in Rogers Park. Destruction of architectural treasures such as the Adelphi Theater to make way for more cookie-cutter condo buildings makes no sense. (And by the way, the Adelphi site is vacant over a year after demolition.)" Read more here.

Window Replacements

Tuesday, February 5, 2008

If you want Change, Don't Vote for Incumbents.

The incumbent, in politics, is the current holder of a political office. This term is usually used in reference to elections, in which races can often be defined as being between an incumbent and non-incumbent. For example, in the 2004 United States presidential election, George W. Bush was the incumbent, because he was the president in the current term while the election sought to determine the president for the following term.

Slumlord of Rogers Park gets 9 Years

"Kakvand bought 33 apartment buildings in Rogers Park and on Chicago's South Side between 1997 and 2004, but didn't renovate them. Units were sold as rehabbed condos at inflated prices, using straw buyers who defaulted on $29 million in loans. The plot displaced renters, and left decaying buildings prone to squatters, drug dealers, fire and water damage".

"Also charged were Syed Ali Mohammed Razvi, a fugitive, and real estate appraisers Thomas M. Groh, Eric L. Dorsey and Britt J. Pierre, who earlier pled guilty".

"Haggerty said Kakvand's continuing legacy is the reduction in the amount of affordable rental housing in Rogers Park, and the artificial inflation of area home prices".

"Rogers Park was always one of the most affordable communities," Haggerty said. "I don't think it is anymore."
