Want More People to Leave?

Mayor Emanuel and the CTA now have approval for a new Transit TIF which will fund the much-needed RPM Red Line Project. And the much-NOT-needed Brown Line Flyover at Belmont.

Is this really a good time to ruin Central Lakeview, one of Chicago’s best-loved neighborhoods, gutting blocks and blocks of its heart for a cement CTA Flyover??

Is a $570 million “Signature Project” Flyover  which will shave a precious 20-30 seconds off 40% of Red Line commutes really something we want to waste our tax funding on?

Hey, maybe more people will want to leave, huh?

Here’s Central Lakeview before – and after – the CTA Flyover.
