Another shoe box proposal

Developers: Richard Aronson and Scott Sinar

Email blast from Alderman Joe Moore: Yes

Developer history of campaign contributions to Alderman Joe Moore: Yes

RP1000 suggests that you attend this meeting to oppose the demolition of the Historic Wisdom Bridge Theatre.

As with 49th Ward developer meetings, Alderman Joe Moore has previously received campaign contributions and will be in support of the project.

Developers stick together, so many former campaign contributors to Mr. Moore will be seeded in the meeting to show support. Although the deck is loaded, outstanding community opposition may sink this project.

Please attend the meeting at:

Willye B. White Recreation Center
1610 W. Howard Street
Chicago, IL. 60626

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010 at 7pm.

Both designs, in my opinion are eyesores. I agree with TftInChi that the developers should pay to do it right with traditional materials or leave it alone.

I think that much of the opposition to developers in Rogers Park is due to the many empty lots and dangerous holes in the ground developers have been littering our neighborhood with.

One of many examples is Chad Zuric’s foreclosure after demolishing the Adelphi Theater. We, Rogers Parkers did not take that lightly at all.
