Planning commission, Zoning board of appeals, Design review board? What are all these people doing except slowing down and stifling potential investment in our town? The fact there there aren't cranes in the air and OneWinnetka celebrating it's grand opening is a testament to bureaucratic bumbling that good intentions have created.
