🏆🏈⚽️A New Field for Lincoln Park High School It is gratifying to announce that the Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Park District have an initial plan for a new turf field for Lincoln Park High School football, soccer and other field sports. The new field will be located just east of the Diversey Driving Range. The preliminary plan, shown above, features a full sized field, bleachers and easy access to parking at the existing lot. Existing restroom facilities are near the adjacent driving range. CPS will increase the high school bus budget to ensure that athletes can readily get to the field. In addition to Lincoln Park High School sports, the field will also be available to the community in general at all other times. This is part of a larger project which includes fixing drainage in adjoining areas of Lincoln Park, and adding naturalized areas near the Barry Street underpass. We will be coordinating meetings with Lincoln Park High School sports and the Park District to ensure that the field meets the needs of our students. Construction of the field will begin as soon as plans are finalized, with the goal of opening for fall athletics. Until then, our teams will continue to use the Near North Field at North and Larrabee for practice. This culminated a multi-year effort to find a location and resources to build a field since there is no more available land in the 43rd Ward to build recreational facilities. Thanks to CPS, the Park District and the Mayor's Office for working together to help us win this for the high school and the community. A very special thanks to our neighboring Alderman Tom Tunney (44th), in whose Ward this field will be located, for supporting our vision - and understanding that our students and neighborhood athletes need space to play. We are very excited to announce this new era for the Lincoln Park Lions football, soccer and other field sports.

My testimony today in front of the Chicago Plan Commission about Lincoln Yards: LINCOLN YARDS Plan Commission Statement Alderman Michele Smith This is the biggest development the city will approve in decades and we just got the plan last weekend. It is wrong to make such a decision within a week. The last time a government body in this Room was asked to make similar momentous decision in so little time was – the parking meter deal. There has been no time for a large community meeting and there has been no time for scrutiny. But this chamber is filled with all the proof you need that public sentiment is extremely high against this development. I suppose the argument could be made that there has been ample process because the process for the guidelines, the North Branch Framework, was lengthy. Of course, a framework is nowhere near an actual plan. And, this is a pretty circular argument because we were told during the framework discussion that there would be plenty of time to see and review actual plans during the PD process. Now we are told that that we had plenty of time because of the framework process. Bottom line, the first that residents saw anything about a 52-acre Sterling Bay Lincoln Yard plan was a “concept” in July 2018 – less than six months ago. And, an actual plan has been out less than one week. We are pleased that the 20,000 seat stadium was rejected, and that a couple more acres of playing fields have been added to replace it. And yet, we were not told that in exchange for shelving the stadium, the development has added two new buildings and expanded three other buildings, for a total of 3 MILLION additional square feet – an almost 25% increase in density. We are glad the vast entertainment complex is gone but the truth is, we have no idea what will be legally required and what is just puffery because we have never seen the actual final plan development documents. And, there are lingering questions about the proposed public expenditures to be made through a TIF that is expected to generate $900 million dollars. We are told that now is not the time or place to question the TIF. Yet every visual the applicant has shown us includes roads and bridges, all of which are proposed to be paid for by a public TIF which has not received enough scrutiny. Most importantly, we have received no formal assurance that there will be a significant public park on the North Branch of the river to balance this unprecedented massive development. With a population planned here of at least 30,000 from Lincoln Yards alone, the North Branch Park Preserve becomes an even greater imperative. We must plan to give these new residents and the existing population around the site a reasonable quality of life. And finally, new circumstances now cloud this matter. The applicant has fired its property tax lawyers, just days ago to stop questions about insider deal-making. Our City Council process is in turmoil and is being challenged and hopefully reformed. Our community supports development of the North Branch Corridor, it does not support this plan today. We want to provide good projects and good jobs for our union workers to build. We do not support a rush to jam through the biggest development in a generation in Chicago. You should delay the vote on this project-- for the sake of your reputation, for the sake of intelligent urban planning and to demonstrate we have good government the public can trust.

Hi. I thought it would be great for my neighbors to see this. I have reached out to your office starting in September about the barricades in the middle of my street (the 1700 block of Bissell), covering a hole from a fallen sewer. After about a month of reaching out to your office via phone and your website, with NO RESPONSE, I finally called and got through to Sheila in your office. We have been in conversation now for 4 months and there HAS BEEN NO ACTION. NO REPAIRS. She continues to tell me she is on it, but still... no results. Isn't that your job? To help take care of our neighborhood and make sure it is safe and not in a state of ill-repair? My taxes continue to rise and I have barricades in the middle of my street for 4 MONTHS? This is pathetic. Your constituents should know how little you care about our neighborhood. READ MORE

This sent Thursday afternoon to Lincoln Park High School families: Dear LPHS Families, Yesterday, we sent out a communication to parents regarding a potential threat that was found written on a wall in the boy's washroom. As a follow-up, we want to reiterate that we take all potential threats very seriously. We immediately reported the threat to CPS Safety and Security and Chicago Police Department, and a thorough investigation is underway. Some speculation has surfaced that this graffiti might be a copycat act following similar graffiti found in a different school earlier this month. That is not confirmed at this time, and we are proceeding with our full, thorough investigation to ensure the safety of everyone. This morning, we had extra support from CPS and CPD to monitor school grounds. We screened each individual student as they entered the building, and we will be screening all guests. We understand that the process was very slow this morning and are working with CPS Safety and Security to streamline the process for tomorrow with extra personnel and equipment. The threat on the bathroom wall referenced a specific date, December 14, which is tomorrow (Friday). In the event that the investigation is not closed out today, we will further increase the level of security and police presence at our school tomorrow. The extra precautions from today will continue, including full screening of all students and guests, plus reinforcing our standard protocols of ensuring that all entrants only use the main entrance doors. We know that this matter is top of mind and understand that some of you are frustrated over not having specific details related to the investigation. At this time, we are balancing the importance of keeping you informed with the need to maintain the integrity of the investigation. We are committed to providing you with timely information and will provide updates as soon as they become available. Our counselors, school social worker, school psychologist, restorative justice coordinator, and our partners from Depaul Community Health Services are available to speak with students who would like to discuss their feelings about this incident. Lastly, the Local School Council Meeting is tonight at 6 p.m. The District's Chief Officer of Safety and Security will be in attendance to discuss this matter and answer questions, and we encourage you to attend. Please do not hesitate to contact the school with any questions or concerns. Sincerely, M Boraz

Officials investigate threat at Lincoln Park High School

CPS issued the following statement to parents today: "Dear LPHS Parents, Students, and Staff, Earlier today, we were made aware of a potential threat to our school. We take all threats very seriously, and we immediately contacted the Chicago Police Department and CPS Office of Safety and Security. Their investigation is underway. While the investigation is ongoing, we are taking the following precautions to ensure student safety: · We will use our metal detector and X-ray machines to scan all students and their personal items such as book bags. · CPS and the Chicago Police Department will provide additional security in and around the building Safety is a collective responsibility. Students are encouraged to immediately say something to school personnel when they see something that is not appropriate. Please don't hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions.
