Reminder: Bertrand Goldberg's Prentice on Landmarks Agenda Today

Just a quick reminder that the Commission on Chicago Landmarks will again be considering the issue of landmarking Bertrand Goldberg's Prentice Hospital at their regular monthly meeting today. 

To put it honestly, if cynically, the Commission will vote a second time to rescind the preliminary landmark designation it granted in December in the expectation it will provide enough of an appearance of due public process to persuade Cook County Circuit Judge Neil Cohen to lift his stay on demolition.  (In December, the Commission had both unanimously granted Prentice preliminary landmark designation and then rescinded that action only minutes later.)  Preservation advocates will be out in force, and the meeting is open to the public: Thursday, February 7th, beginning at 12:45 p.m. in the County Board Room of the County Building, 118 North Clark.
