  • rat in yard Archived
    2510 Harrison Street Evanston, IL - Evanston

    We saw a rat crawling around outside the northeast side of our house on Friday evening. Rats are known to have infested back yards on the north side of our block, but we are on the south side -- and to our knowledge, this is the first rat spotted on the south side. Most likely it came from the problem area along the alley north of Harrison St.

    Parkway trees on both sides of the street need trimming. Branches hanging into street.

  • 1432 Elmwood Ave. Evanston, IL - Evanston

    The alley that runs north and south between Elmwood Ave. and Maple Ave. (E & W) and Lake St. and Greenwood St. (N & S) is used by the fire department AND the police department, yet when they paved the part of it adjoining the police parking lot, they left the remaining eighty per cent of it as an unpaved dirt road that gets huge potholes each year and is one of the only alleys so close to town that remains unpaved. I was told that the city would assess the property owners $6000 apiece to pave this as IF this were the owners' private domain. It is NOT. Many many people use this alley, including renters in an apartment complex, AND the police and fire departments. This should be paid for with city and/or police and fire dept. funds. (Disclaimer: my property is not on this alley.)

  • Main St /Asbury Ave Evanston, IL 60202, USA - Evanston

    When cars traveling east/west on Main attempt to make a left turn, traffic behind them have no room to go around but to only wait until the car has completed its left turn which usually happens when the traffic light changes leaving the traffic to wait again for the next green light. Looking either for a left turn arrow or reconfiguring the intersection with a left turn bay.

  • rat problem Archived
    2509 Harrison Evanston, IL - Evanston

    Our neighborhood has been dealing with a rat problem for month!
    The garbage containers along the north side alley are not always secure that is the lid is not tight so rats and squirrels can get in, especially a couple of days before garbage pick up!
    I killed a dying baby rat in my yard two days ago and am fed up with the problem.

    There are several apartments that always have overflowing garbage dumpsters days before their pickup- is there a way the city can have the owners get more dumpsters?

  • Bike rack Archived
    600-616 Church St Evanston, IL 60201, USA - Evanston

    There used to be a large bike rack in front of Whole Foods, which the City of Evanston decided to replace with three small racks, each of which can only accommodate two bikes. The result of this shortsighted beautification can be seen right around the corner where all the overflow bikes are now chained to the ornamental fences if the flower beds.

    What was the city thinking? Are they trying to discourage bicycle riding in Evanston?

    At the entrance to Vera McGowan Park there is a rock with a metal plaque describing Vera McGowan. The four screws holding the metal plaque have been removed, and the plaque is sitting on the ground against the rock. I'm concerned someone is going to take the plaque so I think this needs to be looked at right away and reattached to the rock is a much more secure way perhaps. Thank you.

    The metal plaque at the entrance to the park has been on screwed since yesterday. I'm concerned someone is going to take it and try to sell it as scrap. It needs to be reattached in a secure way, I think. Thank you
