Thanks LL the whole process was very smooth! Marsha and Jackie have had the signs taken down! I a sure the residents appreciate one more parking space .. :usa:

Glad it was resolved expediently & I'm sure the neighbors are grateful for another parking space.

Apparently, you don't drive into the city of Chicago. Try Austin from Roosevelt to the expressway, 55th or 31st street or almost any side street. Berwyn is perfect compared to the big city!
  Sandy I drive through the city quite often. Yes it is bad but so is everything else in the city. For its size compared to Chicago Berwyn should be ashamed of itself for the condition of its side streets especially, after all this is August! Haven't plowed for months and for the money Berwyn pays in property taxes there is NO EXCUSE. I don't think residents want to be compared to the City of Chicago either.
  There are also alot of homes on the market I don't think perspective buyers will be to impressed driving down side streets filled with pot holes. Especially if they are also looking in surrounding areas.
Right around me I have no problems with potholes, although I don't go south of Ogden frequently on side streets.  My husband works around Foster and Kedzie and I had to pick him up a few months back. Taking Kedzie south to the expressway at Diversey was an exercise in trying to dodge major potholes that could have caused damage to my car.  I honestly have not seen the like of them here in Berwyn.

Education and Schools / Re: New TSI Program at Morton

That sounds like a great program AND a great idea to free up the IT department for critical issues.  It doesn't take a genius to ask if you've restarted the computer!

If it offers certifications that the student can take out into the working world, it's worthwhile. If it doesn't, it's just cheap labor. An expansion of the old A/V geek squad (not used as a pejorative, just the most apt descriptor.)

IT and technology integration has lagged behind IT and technology in schools for decades now, partly because the kids often know more than their teachers. Properly tapped, managed and utilized, it's a problem solver. Whoever leads this program had better be up to the security challenges.

Noticed that BHB has a facebook page and is also on instagram.  Both provide a couple pics of the interior.  Work is progressing, it appears, but a lot left to do.  Site states they hope to be open in time for the Bears opening game in September.  Also, states they are accepting applications for servers.

I don't live in Chicago and Chicago is a much bigger city.

Oak Park Avenue is ready to collapse into itself.  It's HORRIBLE, especially south of the tracks.
