Basically good news, it seems.
Any new inside poop about what exactly Bridgeview might be getting for their additional $15 million?
It cracks me up, Bedford park needs to do traffic and noise studies at a spot where there was a former heavy industrial plant and a traucking depot where there probably thousand of trucks a week comign in and out of town for 20 years. Ahhh yes, its the whose ******** is bigger and who gets stroked first. LOL cracks me up.
Design control over the stadium.
"Bridgeview needs a zoning change to install the parking lot because the site is zoned for heavy industrial use. Bedford Park is waiting to see engineering, noise and traffic studies; a cost analysis of the stadium; and associated infrastructure improvements, Gryczewski said."
That surprises me. IMO, a parking lot would be a downgrade from an industrial use. Usually, a heavy use zone encompasses everything that has lesser impact (like an 3 flat apartment building being converted a single family home is ok, but converting the other way requires a change to a multi-family zoning). At least that's what my wife, the real estate appraiser, says.
Having leverage is usally more important than being correct.
The $15mm is going to buy Bridgeview more than just control of construction. When that was announces, PW said they would have to renegotiate the revenue sharing deal to account for the change in who put in that money.
As someone who worked in Bedford Park for a year, this is BS. Just a way to waste tax dollars on something, since BP is pretty much and industrial town, much like Rosemont is a hotel and entertainment town.
Seems like they still need to dot the I's and cross the T's. I just hope this doesnt turn into a Harrison/MediocreStars fiasco.
I don't see any problem anywhere near approaching that. They already have the money. the deal to build is done. They need a zoning change for a parking lot and a rental/operating agreement for the stadium from AEG. Doesn't seem like there is a deal busting likelihood in the cards.
And once Landek headbutts Bedford Park. We can then call the new parking lot on the Bedford Park side, the Mayor Landek Car Park. The comments made by Bedford Park ...."we want to be made whole" ...sounds as if they are jealous or something. Goodness. Rock on Bridgeview!
"That's a migh'y nice village you've got there, Bedford Park. It would be a shame if sumfing was to... 'appen to it."
It's amazing what a bag of rusty doorknobs can do to the human head.
FYI, As of the census of 2000, there are 574 people that live in Bedford Park.
