Thanks to Wilmette Trustees
Green Bay Road Hi Rise Disaster Averted

High rise disaster? Hey, in Wilmette five stories is a high rise, completely out of keeping with the character of the community. Thanks to the Village of Wilmette Trustees, the massive development proposed for the Old Ford Dealership on Green Bay Road has been sent back to the drawing board for improvement. The Wilmette Life has a has a story about that today. Unfortunately, their stories stay online for only a brief period, so if the link is dead, just click here to read the story. While the story doesn't give much comfort that all the Trustees will stand with Wilmette's citizens on this, there is hope.

Shame on Trustees Mari Terman and Chris Canning who supported the proposal which was guaranteed to change the character of Wilmette forever.

Special thanks to Wilmette Trustee James Griffith, who put it best: "Five stories is totally unacceptable to me."

Wilmette's own Backyard Conservative weighs in here with her post on "Godzilla on Green Bay."
