This would be an ideal block to host an CFD Engine . CFD Engine #39 is a recent arrival to the city and has been "punching" out all manner of street and alley closures for the city. They are at least 5 miles away, but can be reached by all means.
Alderman Cardenas held his 2nd Annual 34th Pl. Clean and Green on May 19th, 2018 from 10 am till 4 pm between Wood and Damen. The annual event continues to grow with new and lifelong residents. This year over 30 people came out to help beautify the blocks and meet our local heroes of CFD Engine #39. CPD officers engaged with residents to discuss "broken glass theory" based community policing and safety tips. The Alderman has a strong relationship with the police who now attend nearly every event in the 12th ward as a safe community initiative. Alderman Cardenas stated, "Clean and greens create bridges of communication to and through residents that every block is an important piece of communication. As the dust and dirt is moved by our collaboration, myself, neighbors and CPD interact to inform each other of our plans, experiences and issues from a macro to micro level." Please call the office to create a clean and green on your block, 773-523-8250. d2c66b5586
