    re: Rezkoville… I will never understand why progressives insist so loudly on telling other people what to do with their land.

    Or why Chicago parks advocates insist on measuring acres per capita like that means something, never mind that Chicago is #4 in the percentage of residents who live within a 10-minute walk of a park, and earns top marks for parks spending. (http://parkscore.tpl.org/rankings_advanced.php)

    The real issue with Rezkoville is that the developer has implemented some grand master plan, which is guaranteed to be lame as heck.

    If you want an interesting, organic neighborhood, subdivide the plot into small lots and sell them off to individual buyers and builders.
