Neighbors rally to gardener's side following anonymous complaint

http://host.madison.com

Michael Martin is used to getting compliments on the botanical bonanza he has cultivated, mulched and pampered along his leafy, residential lot on the Near West Side.

But one anonymous complaint set Madison's inspection apparatus in motion and kept Martin in thrall for two weeks, an experience that mustered supportive neighbors.

City Regulatory Incoherence Threatens to Shut Down Successful Business

http://chicagoist.com

Logan Square Kitchen has had a tough first year. Despite their immense success, the support of their alderman and lots of love from the Chicago food press, the shared-kitchen concept simply doesn't fit in with current Chicago zoning laws, which can't seem to decide whether the spot is a shop, a restaurant or a production space. In reality, LSK is all three, and provides an important space in Logan Square for community organizing. It also allows start-up businesses who cannot afford their own store a place to manufacture products.
