South loop skate park noise

What's the point of living in an expensive building when mayor Emanuel and will burns along with the park guy kelly open a skate park so the neighbors can hear loud violent anti-women rap lyrics pounding. Messages left with cpd no response. Guess this us what mayor pay to play wants.

  • I can't believe they let that wiesel Bob O’Neill, President of The Grant Park Conservancy, convince the city take TIF money and foist the skate park in that space, which is technically not Grant Park. Their only goal is to use it to make inside money when they take it...

    I can't believe they let that wiesel Bob O’Neill, President of The Grant Park Conservancy, convince the city take TIF money and foist the skate park in that space, which is technically not Grant Park. Their only goal is to use it to make inside money when they take it over during Lalapalooza, you watch.

    Combine this mess with the incredibly poor presentation of the headless statues, Agora, and this corner is crapola that would not be allowed near the north side of the park. (Poor organization, wasted space, No landscaping, no lighting, no seating, etc.) They should rip that shiit out and put in another formal space.

    O'Neill needs to be neutered, is this an elected position? And why is Grant Park Conservancy being allowed to represent on Museum Campus and Northerly Island issues when they are not part of Grant Park; that is not legal in sense of the park district by-laws.

South loop skate park noise pollution

Mayor Emanuel, Will Burns and the Park District have decided to turn the area around Grant PArk into a place for loud violent, anti-woman rap music played so loud it penetrates into expensive condo buildings. Police and Alderman Burns were notified--no response--I guess this is what Emanuel wants. Now we will have a magnet for more crime and thugs coming into the neighborhood. He must be defeated.

    Hey how bout skate boarding with headphones ?? That might work.
    And what if you're a skater that doesn't like rap? Do they take requests ?
