    It will be interesting to see what’s going to happen with the Edgewater-Rogers Park boardwalk. The city wants it and has made money available. Osterman wanted it (based on his initial enthusiastic reaction) but has since then toned down his enthusiasm, presumably because ASCO doesn’t like it.

    It pitches the textbook NIMBYs of ASCO against the rest of
    the neighborhood.
