95th Street boardups are a disgrace.

I don't know about you but I am getting tired at looking at the boardups on 95th street. I am especially thinking about the buildings at 1841 and 2215 W. 95th st. Am I alone in my concern? Isn't there a city ordinance that mandates the replacement of broken glass? Plywood is not an option. Where are the building inspectors? Have these buildings been cited? Are they in court? I don't think the 95th street business strip has a chance when conditions like these are allowed to exist.

Am I wrong for asking about this? Am I wrong for asking some absentee landlord to take care of his building? Where is BAPA on this? Where is Alderman O'Shea on this?

    95th Street looks like 71st between Stony and Yates.

    We are entering into the 4th year of Barack OBoardup!! Seriously, not only our neighborhood, but everywhere you look boarded up residences - and boarded commercial properties - even in places like Glen Ellyn! If we have to listen to the 19th Ward take credit for businesses starting up in our area - they need to look in the mirror to see who is to blame for the desolation...every boarded up business represents the liberal Democratic policies and virtual tombstones for a dozen or so lost jobs....they are testimony to the failure of Obama - and they enablers in our Ward. I agree that we need to contact O'Shea and light a fire under the Ward to help correct this. Also, is it just me or does anybody else wonder why Evergreen Pk and developers think it is a hot idea to build brand new buildings when there is SO MUCH available commercial already standing - ie the Plaza, which is truly about 66% vacant right now? Where is the demand - and why build new right now ??

    This is not O'Sheas fault. Nothing was done for 20 years before him.
