“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to honor one of our own,” said Alderman Pat Dowell.  “It would spur both housing and commercial development.  But,  there’s definitely a need for community involvement in how that site is laid out, how it’s oriented, what it looks like. None of that has been discussed.” (Chicago Sun-Times, 01/05/2015)
