The "traffic diversion" is simply that - a diversion! It's moving all of the noise, traffic and people to Lombard - a RESIDENTIAL street and we are now suffering!!! It is NOT a solution!
The dirt bikes and ATVs and "rif raf" are now on a family street.
I agree with the above comment we are just moving traffice from a more commercial street to multiple residential streets
I am having cars idling outside my house. We have at least a dozen kids on my street. I've watched cars come up to the idling cars, people come, go and I can only assume it's drug dealing. These issues did not happen before.
Any talk about speed bumps or other traffic calming measures for Lombard St?
Why not find a place for them to safely "cruise"? Cruising has always been part of life since cars. Find a place - away from residential areas - and make it "cool" to be there. It becomes the go to place. Down the river somewhere or who knows? Let's be creative.
The city should just have cameras avail on all those areas 24/7. It shouldn't be like the neighborhood watch is supposed to submit a form in a DIY way. Surely there is an officer assigned just to the correct submission of these complains ts and validity
I don't understand why the solution seems to be that it's better that they rev their engines on residential streets like Lombard, than on South. And yes, I appreciate you are trying, but why is it better to happen somewhere else? It's a diversion not a solution. Sorry.
I did some research on how other cities are handling this problem as well as the feasibility of having the ATVs and 3Wheelers diverted to another area in the city and looking towards a less enforcement posture.
maybe we can get some mosquitos from florida and release them(?)
Where idea on Lombard Street bad idea
Not worth looking at the neighbors will not approve such a ridiculous plan
I have 2 quick comments on this subject. Rick Piper
If there is only 1 lane on Lombard, the busses and trash trucks will be a disaster. But I like the thinking outside the box
Good point Janet
Just an FYI there is a decibel meter now available on both Apple and Google Play which might be a less expensive solution.
what happened about to promise to put up signs about loud noise; allow PPA to write these, not only police.
Yes, but if you start using it on ATV's and bikes, the next minute it's groups of people playing pokemon in Rittenhouse, grubhub delivery personel etc etc.
What about construction drilling (?) What if at night the company with a permit has been working more than 18hours and is on overtime (3am, 5am situation) and it gets called in. Why is it 50/50 whether or not the noise is actuallly stopped.
There was a dance party at 9th and south a few weeks ago
I appreciate that these are all difficult issues to solve and appreciate the chance to further discuss. We need to figure out and hope we can. Sadly, I must go. Thanks.
Amen was totally inappropriate.
The airport is empty. Let's lease them one of the empty runways!
The bikers want to be seen and interfere with traffic.
Thank you - this was very informative.
no it would not
Well done Eleanor and Larry. An interesting and useful discussion.
If a citizen submits a bar complaint, is the bar owner given the citizen's name; asking b/c of retaliation
will there be a recording of this available?
squilla is awesome!
