I've just spoken to Emilye Crosby who lives on Weldon. She is concerned about the state of former owner occupied homes becoming rental property too. Even if your street isn't affected you are still affected. I'm asking those concerned to join me in setting aside a time to speak to city council about zoning laws and ordinance that may help us preserve home ownership. I'm not a lawyer but I don't believe this sort of thing could so easily take place in some of our suburban neighborhoods. It's…Continue

Maybe it's just me or maybe I'm late to the game, but I think I'm seeing a bad trend around my neck of the 19th ward. That is the turning of good single family homes into apartments. A former long time neighbor and friend in the house behind ours put her home up for sale. Gone for cash in 4 days. Guess what will happen next.
