UPTOWN — Ald. James Cappleman is polling residents of the 46th Ward on where to spend the annual budget for infrastructure improvements.
Each year, the 46th Ward is given $1.32 million to spend on the improvements that will last a year or more and usually goes toward street repaving, speed humps, sidewalk replacements and street lighting, Cappleman said in his weekly newsletter.
Last year, some of the funds went toward installing police cameras at locations based on information from 19th district CAPS meetings. Funds were also divied among the street improvements listed here.
CDOT will also provide Cappleman with suggestions on improvements based on 311 records. He is also asking that residents of the ward send their suggestions to him via email to add to the list.
"You know the condition of the streets, sidewalks and curbs around your home. When you see something that needs repair, please contact me to include it in our 2016 projects. I'll combine this information with what we get from CDOT to help decide where to spend our limited funds," Cappleman said.
You can contact him via email at email@example.com or by phone at 773-878-4646.
