New residential street lights on W. Estes Ave., from N. Greenview Ave. to N. Ashland Ave.
One of six critical safety-oriented projects, the section of Estes Avenue from Ashland to Sheridan is an extremely poorly lit area of the Ward. Residents in the area report many problems with drugs and solicitation, along with a high number of 911 calls. Crime rates are reported to be reduced in well lit areas. The committee’s recommendation is to use 2010 menu money to complete the first block and then request that the Alderman submit an application to complete Greenview to Sheridan with the Mayor’s 2010 New Residential Lighting Program money (a suggestion made by the Alderman’s staff).
