July 4th Poster Contest Results

The land of Lincoln and so much more…

Neighborhood students from Edgebrook, Wildwood and SMOW competed in the ECA's Fourth of July Poster Contest. This year's theme was celebrating Illinois' bicentennial. We asked students to show us what they thought was best about Illinois. From small (twinkies) to large (skyscrapers) and all sizes in between, the students responded with Illinois favorites.

We'd like to thank the students who participated and give a big thanks to the teachers who guided them in this lesson of discovery.

Enjoy the results of their hard work.

It's just around the corner!

Snow Plowing Service provided by the ECA

The City of Chicago’s primary concern is keeping the major traffic arteries clear. Plowing side streets is a much lower priority for the Department of Streets and Sanitation.

The ECA, on the other hand, is concerned about emergency vehicle access to our side streets as well as the ability of our neighbors to get out of the neighborhood and off to work in a timely fashion.

The ECA notifies our plowing contractor when snow fall reaches four inches. The contractor clears a path down the center of the street. The goal is not total snow removal, but rather the creation of an access path for emergency vehicles as well as egress for our neighbors.

The ECA provides snow plow service to this area, excluding the major city streets.

Questions or Concerns?
