Police affirm Division, Chicago foot patrols

Jeff Liberman of Asado Coffee unwinds with Dan Johnson at the Happy Village.

Police will address foot patrol staffing on Division and Chicago avenues, CAPS coordinator Molly Murray reports to East Village Association members. Cmdr. Melissa Staples had not known beat cops were filling in elsewhere and said she "will take care of it."

Tonight's meeting ended long before the Wisconsin-Duke game tipoff. Here are notes from the Happy Village, 1059 N. Wolcott Ave.:

Extra remodeling incentives are available for buildings with electric heat through Elevate Energy. The nonprofit offers free energy advice to apartment owners and a $99 assessment to homeowners.

John Rutherford of Smoke Daddy will lease the former Moonshine space at 1824 W. Division St. to Mike Bisbee of Parlor Pizza. Plans will be presented at a future EVA meeting.

Asado Coffee is opening another shop at 363 W. Erie; the local chain roasts in East Village at 1651 W. Chicago.

Red Apple Convenience’s appeal for a liquor license was denied by the appellate court.

  1. Great news on 3 important fronts!
    1) No Liquor license for Red Apple
    2) No sidewalk patio license for Red Square who illegally removed the tree pit
    3) And Division Street beat cops to stay on the beat!
    Power to the residents!!
