Say no to Albion in Oak Park, IL

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.

New Park District signs for Oak Park, IL

Oh great, so I see Oak Park, Il just wastes money like the city of Chicago does driving through the village on the side streets to avoid traffic I noticed a new sign for Rehm park. Nice colorful and shiny. Of course, parking and taxes are still issues from residents in Oak Park, IL but who cares about that, so long as we can brightly see where Rehm park is, from three blocks away.

Now if you have been here in Oak Park, il you know what the parks around here look like, there is no disguising it. I mean the population here walk and let their dogs shit everywhere around here, there are bike riders and runners everywhere on the sidewalks in the streets it is like one big fucking park (no pun intended) anyway. So why even bother buying these signs anyway, it’s not like there aren’t baseball or futbul games played by youth leagues or amateurs there. The mystery is the traffic is so bad around here you have to avoid Oak Park, IL altogether to get to Chicago to the rest of the burbs it’s no joke.

However, the village of Oak Park, Il going right in character with their usual sell out ways are spending money on something stupid like this, that is cool though because when I tell people this they really shy away from renting or buying property here. You do not have to be Sherlock Holmes to figure out when suburbs get like this they are slowly on a downward spiral to match the major metropolitan area that it is near.

In other words, I wonder if Oak Park, Il’s forefathers would react seeing their small oasis is quickly becoming like Chicago, not only in situations like this, but also in the skyline that as I mentioned before is rapidly changing. Time to pick a new suburb people. A better one.
