Here is part of the Obama Foundation's statement:

“We were amazed by the quality of responses to our Request for Qualifications and we are grateful to every institution that expressed interest in carrying President Obama’s legacy forward,” said Board Chair Martin Nesbitt. “These four potential partners have come the farthest in meeting our criteria and have each demonstrated a strong vision for the future Obama Presidential Library. We look forward to working with each institution to further refine their proposals over the coming months, and to presenting our recommendations to the President and First Lady early next year.”

Loud Block Party past midnight

Are block parties permitted to have live amplified outdoor bands playing past midnight in residential neighborhoods?

I'm wide awake because of the extremely loud block party going on well past midnight in Little Village right now, near Cermak and Albany. My neighborhood has had other block parties with live music. I've never heard it so loud before, and all other parties have wrapped up around 11 at the latest. I called 911 but don't expect anything to happen.

  • I doubt that it is allowed, but it's definitely not uncommon in neighborhoods like Little Village or Pilsen. If you are fairly new to the neighborhood this may be something that you will need to adjust to. I do agree that most of the time, the music usually ends around midnight. However, on a Friday or Saturday night it could last longer.

  • I live in Pilsen and I have come to terms with my block holding many block parties during the summer. My one complaint is the lack of notice - all we see is a photocopied no parking/block party sign...the day of the party.

  • The must wrapped up around 12:40 AM. I don't mind block parties at all and was just surprised at the noise level of a live band on a stage so late at night. Good times!

On June 16th, the Barack Obama Foundation received 13 responses to its Request for Qualifications. Since then, it appears that the various bidders have chosen to silently wait for the Foundation’s decision, due sometime this month. Unfortunately, we fell into that mindset. Apologies.

On June 16th, the Barack Obama Foundation received 13 responses to its Request for Qualifications. Since then, it appears that the various bidders have chosen to silently wait for the Foundation’s decision, due sometime this month. Unfortunately, we fell into that mindset. Apologies.
From the beginning, developing a sense of pride in this and similar communities across the country was what our efforts were all about.
There is no doubt that physically, geographically and demographically, North Lawndale has the superior site and has a probable chance of winning the Library bid.
A grand Library campus built in a poor community will bring new investments and people, but what about the people here now? Without a sense of accomplishment, where is the sense of ownership? Where is the sense of pride?
North Lawndale’s site was not chosen from outside of the community. Our site submission was developed by the community. The University of Illinois did not approach us; we approached them with our fully researched site. This is the result of a community’s efforts.
When we win the Library (and we will), North Lawndale needs to know that it can say, “We did that!”
