The new Target in Downtown Oak Park, IL is getting a liquor license

I think it is fantastic that the new small format Target on Lake and Harlem is getting a liquor license! You can get a bottle and drink before you go into Bar Louie or anywhere else in downtown Oak Park, IL the funny thing about this vote is that the mayor abstained like he is above liquor licenses! But hey he will build high-rises all over the place probably is looking at Ernest Hemingway’s home as a possible area for development too!

 

It is time to bring liquor to downtown Oak Park, Il and show the residents how we party and how we can be just like Chicago. I hope everyone realizes that with this September 5th vote that the old Oak Park, Il is becoming extinct. It is wine time homies! Hopefully Target will be able to sell liquor at all times, and have better prices that the liquor stores down Harlem (at Madison Avenue, for example). I am really glad that the area will be getting more traffic and now liquor whooo great job village trustees to breaking down the old Oak Park, IL and replacing it with one that is being sold out at a rapid rate!

 

Here is the article briefly mentioning the liquor sells at the new Target in downtown Oak Park, IL:

Construction in Oak Park, IL part 10,1793,000 and something

There is another development under consideration next to “downtown” Oak Park, Il and the Downtown Oak Park Board (yeah there is such a thing) is all behind it. As this writer understands that Oak Park, Il is forcing high rise developments into its downtown area without thinking further down the road. The amount of traffic in the area is ridiculous and there are simply not enough resources (parking) to deal with the “modernization” movement that is occurring.

It maybe this movement is unstoppable however it is without through planning even though I bet the Village Planner (yes there is one of those as well) is probably wetting his willy over the thought of additional side cash coming the local government’s way. Of course, it may not be the best thing for all those involved and it may cause more problems than solutions.

Even Chicago modernized quickly after it was founded and then the Chicago fire happened, changing the landscape entirely. Maybe the “fire” here for the residents to get off their asses and see the issues brought up with all the developments and lack of village planning IS the increasing amount of traffic in the area and the higher taxes (assessments) that go with high rise developments likes this.

Telling people about Oak Park, IL

I think I may have introduced a non-internet person to the blog I was getting my hair done, and I was talking to the stylist about where I live you know how that comes up in small talk at a hair salon. The stylist was like “Oh Oak Park nice!” and I had to stop her right there because I am not going to let anyone get hoodwinked by this shitty little village ever again.

I told her that even some of the residents hate it because of the crime and how the village is condensing these developments near downtown Oak Park. Being from Berwyn, IL she thought that the development was great although she would not go into the area because of the traffic. I immediately told her a lot of people in Oak Park, IL are feeling the same way, crushed by the construction, traffic and parking situation that faces people every day in Oak Park, IL.

I told her about the Old Lady on Harvey story that wanted me to move my car and she stated that “they have parking restrictions in Berwyn but it is not THAT bad!” yup. Of course, it is only that bad in Oak Park, IL a shitty little village trying to be a big city in its downtown without the infrastructure, planning or vision to carry this monumental feat off.  I told her about the blog and some of the other stories that I still must write on here, and she told me she is good staying in Berwyn!

Hey, at least I got another converter or person steering clear of Oak Park, IL and all its craziness before it is too late and that is the main reason why, why I started this blog. Go elsewhere but here.

The fleecing of Oak Park, IL

I love the new fleecing of Oak Park, Il’s downtown, I love the chaos it will bring. Screw the environmental bullshit, the “shade will kill trees” crap oh I love it, these are the representatives that the residents of Oak Park, Il voted in, doing this shit and the residents are getting what deserve what they get. Representatives who are pimping out downtown property to development companies that honestly are not in the wrong here, but are taking advantage of an opportunity that is presented to them by these elected representatives.

Isn’t that what the residents of Oak Park, Il teach their kids? When an opportunity is presented take it! I love seeing and hearing about these idiots planning events with face painting smores and nature tours…. Hahahaha what the fuck is that supposed to do? What kind of hippie-tree-hugging shit is that? Get a fucking real strategy like picketing the development companies’ offices or the homes of their employees or how about getting petitions for new elections for new representatives? Grow the fuck up or just accept that Oak Park, Il is slowly becoming little Chicago dipshits.

You already got fucked parking rules and crazy taxes for cheaper property assessments meanwhile the village is increasing looking like most of the residential section are stuck in the 1980s with paint jobs that mirror that time. Now you got a mayor that cannot wait to sell half of downtown away to developers increasing traffic problems and killing that nostalgic “feel” that Oak park, Il is clinging onto like a crackhead to his pipe. But hey just keep an “open mind” like your mayor said, hey you’re progressive Oak Park, Il congrats! But nothing is helping you save your idyllic hometown with this idiot as mayor. Hahhahahahaha Idiots aplenty!

The movement being lead by the lead sell out, the mayor of Oak Park, IL:
