Tuesday night’s COW (8/24) will have more discussion of the Shodeen project. Last week, Shodeen had not yet secured funding, but has since done so. BUT, the bank wants a letter of support from the Council saying he is not in breach of contract, though he is in breach of contract. Some aldermen are balking. We’ll see what happens Tuesday night. A story on last week’s meeting can be found here, and one on the funding, here.
Wednesday night (8/25) there is a public meeting regarding the dam. Info sent to B4RG:
“As you may know, the city and park district will soon seek reaction from residents to five options for removing the Challenge Dam. The city had been working with Hitchcock Design Group to formulate the options but thus far there has been little opportunity for public engagement.
A group of residents has organized a public meeting on the subject this Wednesday, August 25th at 7pm in the City Council Chambers.
Please feel free to share and join us if you are available.”
