The bike lane on Foster is only west of Elston (in the 45th Ward) but doesn't continue to the east (in the 39th Ward.) Suggest to Ald. Nugent to continue the Foster bike lane east from Elston through the 39th Ward all the way to Kedzie.
In addition to the existing auto repair location, the proposal is also to purchase the property of the church to the east to make this even bigger and compound the problem of curb cuts into both Foster and Elston.
I attended the community meeting on December 17th. Just about everybody opposed, but the alderman was not present. This development depends on two things: 1) the Trinity Slavik Lutheran Church selling the grass parcel just west of their church and 2) the alderman approving the zoning change from RS-5 to B3-1. Need to reach out to both the church and alderman.
