Totally awesome, finally Oak Park, Il residents have used their collective wits to stand against more bullshit development in the Oak Park, Il area. With the vote going 5-4 to say “NO” to the development of the Albion development is a major accomplishment. Because the money is what talks in Oak Park, IL with this vote obviously the “winds of change” are going another way. Protection of Parks in Oak Park, IL is very instrumental without the green areas
Oak Park loses its luster. However, this is only a “recommendation;” and the village board can still go ahead.
So why is that awesome? Because at least the voices of the residents of Oak Park, IL are being listened to by someone in the planning and development stages. Hopefully, the citizens sue the village board if they go ahead and point to this “recommendation” by the Oak Park Plan Commission to delay the selling of Oak Park, IL to special interests that the village board is okay doing.
If the residents that pay taxes are not okay with this development why is the village board going ahead with such stupidity? Because they are a smaller identical twin government of dysfunctional City of Chicago government that you see dominating the news on a daily basis with their stupidity.
If the residents were smart they would protest this crap on a bi-weekly basis forever and ask/get local media to cover it, the more “light” the residents can bring to this issue the less likely the cockroaches on the Village board will push through such crap. But that is only if the residents who are against this development have the balls to do so, this vote gives them the ammunition to totally stand against the village board.
Now it comes down to putting boots on the streets of Oak Park, IL or will the residents just sit on their asses at home complaining about it on social media, me? I have no dog in this fight I cannot care either way if the residents choose the latter then Oak Park, IL will be just the biggest hypocrites on God’s green earth.
