As a member of the Maloney election team, I was really proud of the way Marty ran his campaign close to Park Ridge. It was all about truth, honesty, and transparency. The other side tried scare tactics, issuing false claims about taxes, and importing workers from outside Park Ridge not to mention getting large fina...

***To be clear, my post below is not intended to take sides in Park Ridge. I sit on the D64 Board and know how difficult it is to do everything needed with the funds available to us. What is not needed, is the manipulation of facts and misrepresentation of numbers to fear mo...

So I have been doing my research on Park Ridge mayoral candidates and found that one of the candidates — Lucas Fuksa — is a commercial real estate attorney which raised a whole bunch of red flags. I have dug up with some highly concerning information and feel the need to share. It appears that Lucas Fuksa has some wealthy developer donors to his campaign whom he will be beholden to if he is ele...

After rejecting a developer's request to build 25 townhouses on property sold by the city last year, two Park Ridge aldermen reversed their votes this week, putting the development back on course. Second Ward Ald. Nicholas Milissis and 3rd Ward Ald. Rick Van Roeyen on Monday changed their votes and supported the rezoning of property at 1200 W. Elm St. from single-family to multi-family resident...

Does anyone have an update on the Old Ember's school property on Sibley in Park Ridge? I believe a new developer bought the land in December. There are some people marking utilities and tagging trees on the property. Has anyone seen the developer's proposal? Or their strategy on stormwa...

An assisted living facility has received tentative approval from the Park Ridge City Council, though at least one aldermen believes the property should be completely set aside for stormwater detention. Aldermen on March 7 voted 4-3 in favor of a special-use permit allowing a four-story, 110-bed facility with a memory care unit at the northeast corner of Northwest Highway and Greenwood Avenue, the fo...

The Park Ridge City Council this week rejected a developer's proposal to build townhouses on land once belonging to the city's Public Works Department. Aldermen on Monday voted 4-3 against rezoning property at 1200 W. Elm St. from single-family residential to multi-family, which would have allowed Lexington Homes to build 25 townhouses on the 1. 76-a...

I want to thank our Council for wasting $15K fighting a developer in court when 2 law firms told them they wouldn't win while we continue to have needs they won't meet near Park Ridge. Here is a video of what it is like to drive down one of the 50 remaining unpaved alleys in PR, this happens to be between Prospect and Courtland. Note the rattle you hear are my keys as I hit the nume...

Four months after buying Park Ridge's former public works service center, a developer is seeking the city's OK to build 25 townhouses on the property. The Park Ridge Planning and Zoning Commission on Feb. 9 approved plans from Chicago-based Lexington Homes to build five separate buildings at 1200 W. Elm St., each containing multiple two-story townho...

The city of Park Ridge will appeal a judge's ruling that sided with a developer looking to build a four-story residential and commercial building in South Park. On Monday, aldermen by a vote of 4-3 directed the city's attorney to begin the appeal process of Cook County Circuit Court Judge Kathleen Pantle's ruling that reversed the Park Ridge Planning and Zoni...

What would you rather love to see a developer put on this property around Park Ridge? Homes? Condos? A private sports complex for indoor soccer/gymnastics/baseball?
