    So the Libertyville houses were built AFTER the bike path, and the developer didn’t grade/landscape appropriately to handle rain, so now these morons blame the bike path? WTF?!? Shouldn’t they be going after the developer?

  • NIMBYs gonna be NIMBYs. It’s the same as people coming into the housing on the back side streets near 2000 N Clybourn and complaining about the (rubber-gasket installed!) rail tracks they had to clunk over in their massive SUVs, or people in newer housing out by O’Hare bitching about plane noise. They don’t like it, so they complain, even if it’s older than their claim to the area and has a good reason to exist.

    “Anti-Cam Crew Plans Protest at Lane Tech High”

    Hope they have a proposal to pay extra taxes, that doesn’t include *me* paying extra taxes.

  • 2Fast2Furious

    This 95th street station expansion is going to be a $200 million waste of money if they/when? they extend the Red Line.

  • It’ll still probably be the preferred landing-point for a bunch of bus lines.

    what happened to everyone “paying their faire share”

  • cjlane

    Speeders “fair share” is whatever tickets they get.

    I say this as someone who gets a speeding ticket from time to time.
