Meet Alderman Napolitano and Congressman Quigley
Monday, September 21, 6:45 PM • Edgebrook Branch Library, 5331 W. Devon Ave.
The ECA is pleased to give you the opportunity to meet Congressman Quigley and Alderman Napolitano at our next general meeting.
Edgebrook Readers Are Out of this World!
The ECA was pleased to sponsor several of the Edgebrook Branch Library’s Explore and Soar summer reading club events, including Rick Kelley’s appearance. Rick had summer reading club participants singing and dancing across the universe with his interactive program, Far Out Songs About Space.
Congratulations to everybody who completed the summer reading challenge. Final figures are not currently available but the estimated account is that Edgebrook readers logged a gazillion minutes of reading time. Way to go, Edgebrook!
To Aerate or Not To Aerate
from our friends at Contour Landscaping
How does core aeration help the turf? It helps reduce the thatch where diseases and harmful insects love to hide. Core aeration actually changes the soil structure underneath the lawn! Since the lawn is forced to grow on the same soil year after year, it is recommended that new, old, healthy, and stressed-out laws receive this treatment. Golf courses have taken advantage of this process for years.
For more information and practical tips on core aerification, visit The University of Illinois Extension LawnTalk on Lawn Cultivation Equipment and Methods. Early to mid fall is an ideal time for core aeration.

Bike Trail Extension
The Edgebrook Community Association has sent a letter to the Cook County Forest Preserve District requesting a meeting with representatives from all local civic and community associations to discuss the proposed North Branch Bike Trail Extension before any work begins.
The ECA feels that significant community concerns regarding safety, traffic congestion and tree removal have been raised and should be addressed in an open, inclusive public forum.
Do you have your own concerns about the proposed extension of the North Branch Bike Trail through Old Edgebrook?

Sign the FAiR Petition. Stop O’Hare Expansion.
Edgebrook residents should expect a huge increase in nighttime aircraft traffic in October 2013 unless we can convince the Federal Aviation Authority and the Chicago Department of Aviation to fairly utilize all O’Hare runways. FAiR (Fair Allocation in Runways) is a coalition of community organizations dedicated to the equitable distribution of O’Hare aircraft traffic. Please sign the FAiR petition to have your voice be heard.
