Town Hall Meeting

Topic; Neighborhood Flooding

For just $50.00, you will be supporting continued progress toward listing the Heart of Berwyn Historic Neighborhood on the National Register of Historic Places. Since last year’s fundraiser, the City of Berwyn has secured funding through a matching grant from the Illinois Preservation Agency (IHPA) with 70% reimbursement and 30% local match provided by CoHo. In addition, the city has selected a consultant to prepare the application. The initial draft is scheduled for submission to the IHPA March 2015.

At this event, CoHo will honor Beverly and Trent Weable with the "CoHo Award" for their outstanding commitment to Berwyn's historic housing stock. An integral part of the Berwyn Bungalow Preservation Initiative team, Beverly and Trent surveyed Berwyn’s bungalow neighborhoods and conducted initial research that led to the development of a simplified process to nominate homes for local landmark designation. Their hard work provided the building blocks for the Heart of Berwyn Historic Neighborhood Campaign.

Yep, one is red robin for sure; the other building , I heard, is to be 4 separate establishments, one of which will be a Starbucks coffee shop

I actually called North Riverside Village Hall a few days ago. The building south of Red Robin will have a Tire Shop and a AAA location. The Tire Shop is going to be working along with Costco for installations of Tires. North Riverside told me they have no plans to lure Starbucks to North Riverside.

The Starbucks is actually coming to Berwyn, not in that strip of buildings by Red Robin. The city of Berwyn has purchased the buildings on Cermak beginning with the Eye Dr. office over to Fifth Third Bank(maybe more). My sister and cousin work for the Eye Dr., who is having a new office built at 44th & Harlem, and the city has confirmed to them that once they vacate the office in Berwyn, a Starbucks is going in that location. (NEW building). So look for a Starbucks near Cermak and Maple sometime by Spring.

The restaurant will be a "brewhouse" in name only. Thomas' line of beers is brewed elsewhere in the Chicago area.

Medical Waste at Home? Doesn't matter in Illinois... who knew?

"Potentially Infected Medical Waste does NOT include medical waste generated in a household. If a person chooses to place this medical waste in with their trash, the following guidelines help protect the trash haulers, landfill workers, and others who may come in contact with the waste. First, the medical waste should be placed in a sturdy container such as a sharps container from the pharmacy, a laundry detergent bottle, or a soda bottle. When the container is full, the lid should be put on the container and taped in place. The container should then be marked "Do Not Recycle" and then placed in the regular trash."

There are some places west and north...
