This is a comical embarrassment to everyone involved. "five years through an exhaustive entitlement process with this Village [Council], with three advisory boards, in over 35 meetings " The Sears Tower was built in 3 years. We will have this vacant eyesore in our town for 10 more years. Why would anybody desire to invest or build in Winnetka when roadblocks get put up at every stage? Look at the amount of empty and abandoned storefronts along Green Bay and you can see the future. Not pretty, but very sad.
