pipedreams Posted August 19, 2021 Share Posted August 19, 2021 This will be a test of true colors....................... "Local residents and an organization called Protect Our Parks have vehemently opposed the presidential library on the grounds that the edifice would obliterate historical and wildlife resources. They also claim that the federal government has not filed the appropriate environmental reviews for the project. "Moreover, any removal of trees or destruction of roadways, vistas, and the landscape in Jackson Park will be irrevocable," said a statement from Protect Our Parks in June. Barrett is the justice assigned to the region and will determine whether the Supreme Court should take up the case. According to NBC News, a federal judge and the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals recently declined to stop construction. Residents near the proposed site at Jackson Park on the South Side of Chicago also fear that the massive $700 million project will lead to gentrification and higher rents." https://www.theblaze.com/news/amy-barrett-obama-library-lawsuit?utm_source=theblaze-dailyAM&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily-Newsletter__AM 2021-08-19&utm_term=ACTIVE LIST - TheBlaze Daily AM 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
