Chicago Clout salutes Peggy Figiel of Save Grant Park
I was happy to hear from Peggy Figiel of Save Grant Park today. I have fallen behind on new posts lately because many of my friends have had some legal issues with the City of Chicago. I am happy when people are passionate about their children's future, and are willing to fight for what they believe in. Old Mayor Daley has been messing with everything he can get his hands on; I think he wants to build his legacy. Some outspoken moms are getting ready to go into court soon. Make sure you google the Lincoln Park and Grant Park issues. Please keep these dates in mind, no shopping Neiman Marcus ladies, there is have work to do! Two lawsuits are in progress against the Chicago Children's Museum plans to mess up Grant Park. There is an Administrative Review to inspect the Chicago Plan Commissions decisions. The hearing is Tuesday, March 31st with Judge Martin Agran. The second lawsuit a Denovo Review, will review the entire application. That Hearing is on April 9th with Judge Sophia Hall. Help defray the legal expenses by contacting these people at http://www.savegrantpark.org/index.htm I am asking Peggy to comment more at a later time. We sent one of our legal scholars from the Municipal Advocate General to assist. Photo edited by Patrick McDonough.
