Lincoln Avenue from Belmont to Diversey and the 6 corners of Lincoln, Belmont and Ashland Avenues have been almost ignored from the street scape that has made the area north of Lincoln, the Belmont corridor and Southport more pedestrian friendly and have new curbs, art work, flowers and signage. The Lakeview Chamber of Commerce and SSA 27 are working to turn this area around and have made it a pririty to make it more appealing visually and is working with residents and businesses to make changes later this year. A meeting and also an on-line survey made it clear what the area wanted. The federal government is also hopefully going to step up after this year to get this area improved.
