    Man Bites Dog: Downtown Water Tank To Be Saved
    We've lamented before about how advances in modern plumbing and fire suppression technology are stripping so many of Chicago's buildings of their rooftop water tanks. Many of the remaining tanks we see adorning the roofs of the city's brick-and-timber buildings are a hundred years old or more. Repairs are expensive.

    I adore water tanks! They are historical and rare. Glad that this one was saved.

Lombard park commissioners: Library knew about encroachment concerns

The library in November successfully asked voters to approve a property tax increase so it could demolish the outdated Helen M. Plum Memorial Library and replace it with a larger and more modern structure at 110 W. Maple St.

    Lombard park commissioners: Library knew about encroachment concerns
    Lombard Park District commissioners say library officials have known for more than a year that they oppose any plans to have a new $22.3 million building encroach into neighboring Lilacia Park. Now that opposition has complicated negotiations between the two taxing bodies and is threatening to delay start of construction of the new library beyond this summer.
