Scarcely a day passes without a new story on the controversial Lincoln Park development. Today, Crain's reports that the Chicago Plan Commission has put Webster Square on its agenda for next week, even though 43rd Ward Ald. Vi Daley has come out in opposition to the project. "The project has the support of the Department of Zoning and Land Use Planning," a spokesman told Crain's. The article says that in choosing to hear the proposal the Daley administration is "ignoring the objections" of Ald. Daley, who had reportedly asked the Plan Commission to remove the project from its agenda. Juicy! But, as the article notes, "developers have the right to put any project before the Plan Commission, but they typically don't ask until their applications have the support of the alderman." You know where we'll be at 1pm next Thursday.
