           Here is the article listing all the projects. A lot of these projects sound like they will eventually be done one way or another like the recent proposal for the lake front park at Albion. Four main categories, arts and innovation is the most interesting. What is your favorite project? Below listed is this writer's favorite projects. Check the article for a full list.

  • Kilmer Elementary School Turf Field: A turf field and playground equipment would replace an empty concrete area. This project would be contingent on Chicago Public Schools paying for half the cost. Estimated cost: $300,000.
  • Glenwood Avenue Cobblestone Restoration: Historic cobblestone (brick paved street) would be restored on Glenwood Avenue between Lunt and Farwell avenues. Estimated cost: $200,000.
  •  Clark Street Bike Lane: A bike lane would be installed on Clark Street between Howard and Albion avenues. Estimated cost: $75,000.
