Crusader Staff Report (The Chicago Crusader/NNPA Member)

Days before the Chicago Plan Commission approved plans for the Obama
Presidential Center, a federal lawsuit was filed to block the proposed $500
million facility that will be built in Jackson Park.

The 500-acre park is located in Chicago’s predominately Black Woodlawn and
South Shore neighborhoods, where former First Lady Michelle Obama, rapper
Kanye West and some of the nation’s most prominent Blacks once lived. On
Thursday, May 17, the Chicago Plan Commission unanimously approved the
blueprints for the Obama Presidential Center, despite emotional appeals
from protestors who are concerned that the library will eventually drive up
rents in the neighborhoods and force out longtime, low-income residents.
The plans now go before the city’s 50-member city council. While those
plans are expected to pass that stage, the Obama Foundation faces a lawsuit
that may be its biggest hurdle yet.
