Meh

I hope they don't fuck up the playpen. That's a lot of land to "build" out on the lake. Kinda like what they did by the Fullerton exit.

What a waste of money they do not even come close to having. Money would be better off used for education or here's a doozy. Take that money and fix up another shitty part of Chicago like they did in the Cabrini Green area and the Halsted/Roosevelt roads area.

Same way they added "land" off Fullerton Ave. Huge boulders, rocks, dirt, sod.

Can't see the completed project on Google Earth but they added a good amount of space. Probably like 5 acres.

Its probably about 10-15ft around North Ave. Doesn't really get "deep" in Lake Michigan around Chicago until you are miles out. Even out by the cribs its only about 30ft.

City is in financial ruins, state is in financial ruins, the federal government is in financial ruins.

Who's going to pay for this?

the financials of anything are really complex. it's not as if chicago has one piggy bank and everyone draws from it willy nilly.

I get that the money is there to spend if they'd like. The problem is, given't current debt and deficit situations, in my opinion, it seems silly to be spending anyone's money on something like this.

things have to be maintained and updated regardless.

the whole country is in a massive deficit, that doesn't make us come to a grinding hault.

Yeah...100% agree.

Building a 70 acre park in Lake Michigan though seems to go beyond maintenance, and necessary updates.
