CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS - LOOP, LINCOLN PARK, GOLD COAST, PORTAGE PARK, EVANSTON

LOOP

The Department of Business Affairs & Consumer Protection (BACP) at 121 N. LaSalle St. has posted its July calendar of Business Education Workshops. These free workshops are open to the public every Wednesdays and Fridays and are a great resource for small business owners to educate themselves on City Hall's requirements to open or keep their businesses running.

LINCOLN PARK

NewCity, the shopping mall that's been under construction for the last 8 years just south of the North/Clybourn retail corridor, is expecting to finally open this fall. So a job fair will be held this Saturday, 7/18, from 8:00am to 5:00pm at CICS ChicagoQuest charter school (1443 N. Ogden Ave) across the street from the construction site. Several retailers, including Mariano's, ArcLight Cinemas, Dick's Sporting Goods, LYFE Kitchen and many more are looking to staff full- and part-time positions from clerks to managers. The NewCity project will also include medical office spaces, a public parking garage, and apartments for lease.

GOLD COAST

This Sunday, 7/19, from 12:00pm - 5:00pm is the 57th annual North Dearborn Association's Dearborn Garden Walk. More than 20 private gardens will be on display with a narrated walking tour and live jazz and classical music performances throughout. Admission will take place at Latin Middle School (45 W. North Blvd). $30 advance tickets can be purchased up until 12:00pm on Saturday, 7/18, otherwise admission is $35 on the day of the event. Proceeds will benefit the preservation and beautification of the immediate community.

PORTAGE PARK

Alderman John Arena's office took to EveryBlock.com to announce the temporary closings of two intersections along Central Ave. starting Monday, 7/20. The Chicago Department of Water Management will be updating sewer lines that have been in place since 1909. Drivers are being advised to avoid the intersections of Central and Montrose Avenues for 1 month, and Central and Berteau Avenues for 2 months until the work is completed. Montrose Ave. will be detoured onto Cicero, to Irving Park, to Austin, then back to Montrose. Central Ave. will be detoured onto Irving Park, to Austin, to Lawrence, and then back to Central Ave.

EVANSTON

Northwestern University students will have an easier time getting around in the coming school year due to the partnership with CTA that's been reported this week. Any student or faculty member with a Northwestern University ID will be allowed to ride the No. 201 Central/Ridge bus route for free from Sept. 2015 through June 2016. This will be the beginning of a 5 year agreement that's been made to lessen traffic by replacing the Ryan Field Shuttle, and offer more frequent and longer service hours for Northwestern. Students can still use the Ventra U-Pass for discounted fares during the summer.
