Edgewater has a history of making mistakes that end up costing us.
The first was letting Lake Shore Drive end up here and after it ended here not doing everything in our power to see that it got extended past Edgewater.
The next was allowing the insanely high high-rises along the lake, and then when we got them not insisting that each and everyone provide a public beach.
The next were the four-plus ones along the Kenmore-Winthrop corridor.
You get the picture right. So the latest mistake being proposed by some is allowing 6 stories on Broadway's west side.
Enough already. Vote yes in the March 21 primary for the 4 story limit referendum.
I can understand that developers can make more money with denser taller buildings. But what we really need and want is diversity. Edgewater Glen and Lakewood Balmoral neighborhoods are unique urban environments and they need the protections that a 4 story buffer zone would provide.
Consider it Environmental Protection.
