We Don't Need No Stinkin' Approvals!, says Park District: We're Building the Children's Museum!

The proposal to construct a new home for the Chicago Children's Museum was introduced in the City Council on Wednesday, with a June vote scheduled. The Park District, however, doesn't feel it needs have to wait for either City Council or Plan Commission approval. The Chicago Sun-Times reported Wednesday that the Park District Board was expected to to approve talks with CCM co-ordinating construction of their building in Grant Park. Superintendent Timothy Mitchell is quoted as dismissing public uproar against the CCM's land grab affecting the project in any way, "I don't see that happening," says he.

Anyone taking bets we'll see another midnight raid bulldozing the park's current field house, followed by an announcement that we now have to build the museum, because the fieldhouse is gone and the Park District doesn't have any money to build replace it?

I don't understand how they can do this? It's feeling more and more like Chicago succeded from the US and we now live in Cuba north?

Wow, it's worse than I ever imagined.

Looks like Daley's real plan is to start an outdoor mall in the middle of Grant Park.

Outrageous acts of bullying are being committed by the mayor and park district officials (as well as the backers of the "museum", if you can call it that).

They don't care that thousands of taxpayers (and VOTERS) don't want this illegal land grab to go forward. Will the arrogance, greed, and corruption never end?
