Opinions in Oak Park, IL

With the criticism of Dan Moroney even coming from the Wednesday Journal it’s a wonder how anyone in Oak Park, Il can come to a compromise in regard to diversity and creating a statement on how to proceed with a plan of inclusion. But these are the people chosen by the residents of this village to lead and make the decisions.

Expenditures on Rush Oak Park’s revamped Emergency room plus a new six story parking garage to help with the extra congestion to a renewed way to deal with making decisions for the curriculum of the OPRF freshmen class. There are always differences of opinion, however with those opinions should come solutions as always with Oak Park, IL this article gave a vote of “No” to all of these issues. But no way to fix the issues that were discussed.

Please read this opinion piece so that you too, can see what type of bullshit exists in Oak Park, IL. It does give valid points, but the lack of solutions is just disheartening, and it makes this village just another part of the politically idiotic spectrum. Nor does it make the village anything special it is just part of the county’s (cook) dismal fabric.

Here is the short article taking about the points happening in Oak Park, IL:

Albion, Albion, Rush Oak Park, Albion, and Albion some more..

Holy shit so after reading this article (“Oak Park Plan Commission issues findings on Albion, Rush”) you are telling we will be hearing about this Albion crap in about two years?? Again? First off, I am glad that the village is expanding the Rush Oak Park Hospital, it is practical well thought of and ideal if the village wishes to expand its population base. Expanding the population base also expands the tax base too, so I know the village is drooling over the thought of all those additional tax dollars with the different high rises they are trying to push through. It is the same crap in Chicago, Oak Park, Il is no better. But the idea of expanding the hospital to me makes sense and I am glad it is out of the reasonable decisions made by the village board.

However, with this Albion crap they have just gotta let it go. Stroll down to the comments and the majority of the people commenting don’t want the friggin thing so why not listen to the people or put it to a ballot to end to this nightmare. Why not ask the people what they want or have a bunch of designs and put those designs to a vote, either through ballot (paper) or online. I just do not want to hear about it for the next two years, well, hopefully I won’t be trapped here that long! Then I can really crap on Oak Park, IL! (LOL) I am glad that most of my favorite places are back in the “trendy” places in the Chicagoland area, and the ones that I do like in the Oak Park, IL area are on the borders so I do not have to put up with the traffic problems.

I mean let’s be realistic an 18-story building is going to bring a lot of traffic to that area, and the plans provided do not have any ideas realistically to deal with that influx. What a parking garage? If that was a solution then why doesn’t Oak Park, Il not have dozens of parking garages all around the village then to truly help the residents? Because there is no money in that type of thinking, with that type of logic you know that the story of the Albion development if defeated in the next couple of months will just “pop” back up in two years’ time. Hey, everyone loves a sequel right? Ugh.

Here is the article talking about the dreaded Albion development rising from the dead like an extra from a George Romero movie:
