Do not be disabled and try to get around downtown Oak Park, IL

So now there is limited disability access to Oak park’s downtown, the construction downtown has become an obstacle for many trying to navigate the area. The intelligence of Oak Park officials at work here, has both sides of sidewalks for Lake and Forest closed not only for pedestrians but for those with disabilities as well. Unfortunately, now everyone has to walk in the streets and nearly get hit by passing cars due to the fact Oak Park, cannot manage simple project management implementation.

The yearlong project in this area has about a couple more weeks to go, with signs informing the public are “clearly marked” sounds like a complete standard cop out. Administratively the village has done the bare minimum as required by law, and that is all that can be expected. I am not sure why anyone can believe there will be anything more from this village administration. Total scrooges the lot of them. Thinking that they will give any resident the time of day to give input or have their concerns be listened to.

As I always said the machine that is Oak Park, IL and their construction plans all over and amongst the village is inept. Why does it surprise anyone that you need to risk your lives to merely cross the street? Only in Oak Park, Il is the greed of the few overweighting the needs of the many.

Oak Park, IL election 2017: Avoiding the Albion meeting

The funny thing is Oak Park, Il as clean as the residents act like it is, is dirty as Chicago, they think they are better, unfortunately, they are the same, maybe even worse. Now, the residents have an actual chance to change the issues behind redevelopments around Oak Park, Il and the constant selling out that is going on around the village. One such example is the 18-story development at the corner of Lake and Forest, in the article below lists more of the details, however, it seems the village trustees are so corrupt that lawyers are needed to tell these trustees not to talk to the developers connected to this development.

Therefore, these trustees do not show up to meetings for questions on the development, come face to face with voters, when they obviously are in discussion with the developers. This shows the level of corruption that this village has that the trustees do not want to discuss issues important to the residents but rather stay close to where the money is.

With an election coming up on April 4th it is a perfect opportunity for the people of Oak Park, IL to shed the skin of these sneaky snakes, however if the human behavior of Oak Park, Il is any indication this opportunity to rid Oak Park, IL of these money grubbing bastards with slip through the fingers like sand. Oak Park, IL can never seem to separate itself from its past in a good way, but they sure could sell it off.
