the whole "it has to go in a park" BS is such nonsense given all of the available vacant and relatively inexpensive land found all over the southside.

for example, take this 5 acre parcel at garfield and MLK: https://www.google.com/maps/@41.7942.../data=!3m1!1e3

it directly overlooks washington park and is only steps from a greenline stop.

it would make infinitely more sense to just tell the obama foundation to buy that land and put the museum and library there.

5 acres should be more than enough land to accommodate what they want to do.

and actually placing it in the community (as opposed to an isolated park site) would be an immensely more logical way to honor the former community organizer. i don't get how/why obama can't/won't see that.
