Local 27 Ward Ald. Walter Burnett, who is coordinating the session with the Chicago’s Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Chicago Department of Planning and Development, said that while some things will have to be worked out, “this thing is bigger than this community It’s important to the city and the state.”
Some businesses in the area even have offered to pay part of the cost, he told Crain’s.
