Aldermanic Forum Scheduled for March 27th
The SPCA and 7 other civics from the 39th Ward will host an aldermanic candidate forum on Wednesday, March 27th from 7:00 – 8:00 PM at Peterson School.
Many voters who backed Casey Smagala and Joe Duplechin are now interested in learning more about Samantha Nugent and Robert Murphy. You too can learn more about these great candidates prior to voting on Tuesday, April 2nd.
Learn more about the event on Facebook or submit a question for the candidates here.
We hope to see you there.
Last night at the 1711/12 beat meeting, Police Commander Pontecore agreed to work with us in using a surveillance tree.
If you have cameras on the outside of your home, or a video doorbell, you can join this list. Then, if a crime occurs near your home, police may ask if you’d be willing to share your footage. In this way, you can really assist our officers.
This is a very smart way to connect our isolated systems and create a better surveillance network over our neighborhood that is more useful to the police. We know they are overworked. Let’s help them in the ways that we can.
Please join our surveillance tree.
We are reaching out to our members to hear your attitudes and ideas about crime and safety in the SPCA. Completing this survey will help us establish our community priorities moving forward.
The Sauganash Park Community Association, along with our neighboring associations, have put together a forum for our candidates for Alderman. The forum will be moderated by Eric Zorn of the Chicago Tribune. This is a nonpartisan event.
Thursday, January 24, 2019 – 7:00-8:30 P.M.
Doors open at 6:30 P.M.

We are looking forward to the event. We hope that you all can join us.
The Sauganash Park Community Association regrets to inform you that our Former Board Chairman, Former Association President, and Current Board member Bruno Cassettari has passed away.

He will be missed but his contributions will continue to benefit us in the future.

SPCA Fall General Meeting
RESCHEDULED FOR THIS SATURDAY.
Yesterday, February 9th, the officers of the Sauganash Park Community Association agreed that snow plows should be called into Sauganash Park. We agreed that plowing should occur in the evening and that members should be notified via our emailing system as well as a post on Nextdoor Sauganash.
Two plows arrived shortly after they were called. We are using a new provider and were pleased with their availability and response time. We attempted to notify members that we were clearing the streets running east and west first. We sent a second notification when those streets were almost cleared and the plows were headed for streets running north / south.
We were pleased with the work of our new provider. Not only did they respond quickly, they worked quickly. They cleared the streets curb-to-curb where possible. Moving forward we are likely to continue to use this provider. We are also going to continue broadcasting these events using the channels that we exercised: Nextdoor Sauganash and our SPCA communications system. Thank you for your help and support. Renew or join online through PayPal. If you know of others in the neighborhood who would like to receive our notifications, including emails about plowing, anyone can sign up using the form in the sidebar of this website.
