I made my decision on Loyola University’s proposal to build a three-story athletic practice facility on the university’s campus at the southwest corner of Loyola and Winthrop Avenues.

    One of many good decisions that you've made Joe as Rogers Park moves forward into the future now, becoming all that it can be! Thank you.

    "Neighbors living across the development also expressed concern that the new building would block the sun from their property."

    Excellently specific NIMBY.

    That won’t make a difference Rob, because as soon as Trump & North Korea nuke the world no one will get sunlight... but we’ll have stlll have the practice facility:)

  • This monstrous athletic practice tower will destroy the historical character of the traditional neighborhood, will attract and kill migrating birds with its lights, will cause flooding and prevent rainfall from recharging the natural aquifer, will add to noise pollution and must be forced to sign a community agreement to hire only local union employees and promise a low carbon footprint and prove that it will support the local small business climate.
