In regards to the 20 minute downpour that washed through town yesterday afternoon, does anyone know how to persuade the city to address the major drainage issues hurting homeowners across Park Ridge? I live on Cumberland Ave., and we experienced major flooding down our street to the point that cars were getting stuck and water was crawling up front lawns.

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.
