Some time back a number of folks talked about establishing a place for kids to hang out in Park Ridge. I stumbled upon this idea and thought I would share it. While it is much more expansive than what is needed, there are a lot of great ideas that could be pulled to create a business model of sorts. Ju...

It is such a tragedy that most if not all shootings that occur in a school setting happen INSIDE the school nearby Park Ridge. How does one protect against such incidences. Maybe better education and support for mental health programs. Increase awareness. Participate in anti-bullying day/awareness month.

Were there really no vacant designated office spaces in Park Ridge? That whole office building next to St Paul of the Cross always has a leasing sign out. That area is getting so much more foot traffic that could support retail. I know a landlord can rent to whomever ...

A stormwater utility (SWU) is considered to be a fair and equitable way to fund stormwater projects and would support the City’s drainage system and flood issues in Park Ridge. This item was approved by the Finance and & Budget committee on 9/26/16 by a vote of 4-3. My opponent voted against it. The item was then brought to the City Council on 10/3/16 and was approved with a...

Anyone know of local "medical closets" that support people in need near Park Ridge? I have oxygen tubing in original packaging plus albuterol treatments. I understand the city holds used prescription collections but it's a shame that I have brand new/unopened/sealed albuterol that so...

A fellow Park Board member is sending this to the newspaper after being targeted in a mailing from two candidates for Park Board - Jim O'Donnell and Jim Janak: I received a campaign mailer for the Park District election supporting two candidates for the Park Board in Park Ridge. It was funded by "Cook County Integrity PAC". Why is a Maine Township Republican right wing Tea Party PAC funded with $10, 000 in donations from a non-resident getting involved in a NON-PARTISAN Park ...

3. 45% This is the compounding annual growth rate of the tax levy for the city of Park Ridge over the past 5 years! 3. 45% FOLKS! Not 70%. 3. 45% This is the ONLY number that a resident in Park Ridge should care about. The tax levy has gone from $17, 000, 000 to $20, 000, 000 in 5 years. See picture. The "tax rate"...

So I went to the D64 School Board Candidate forum last night in Park Ridge. I was blown away by some of the answers. Bulblitz and Norm (can't remember how to spell his last name) impressed me with their ideas on how to curtail waste by not buying into pricy untested or shiny...

I like to support local and it's always nice to see a new restaurant in the area, so I thought I'd share a great new place in Morton Grove by Park Ridge.

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...

Interestingly enough, I was driving home through Uptown a few minutes ago and stopped to check out the Christmas Lights in Park Ridge. I wanted to try to understand tonight's controversial post. My educated guess is this: the reason the lights are more sparse over the tracks are because there is no power available at the base of the ...
