I wonder if this project should be renamed Beetlejuice. It seems like Lincoln believes that by showing the same unpopular plan over and over, neighborhood approval will suddenly appear. Lincoln representative Angela Hunt whizzed through an incomplete deck of slides in record time. I say incomplete because one Oak Lawn Committee member had the original presentation from many moons ago and wondered where all the pages had gone … you know, the detail. Hunt said she left those pages out for brevity.
It was an excuse echoed by Lincoln’s Jeff Courtwright. In this case he was responding to a query about why Lincoln had ignored the very specific data requested months ago concerning how shade would fall across neighboring buildings. This time Courtwright said he made the decision not to provide what was asked for but instead give them only what he wanted. You’ll recall, I called Lincoln out for ignoring requests, essentially disrespecting the neighbors. Of course the reason it was ignored was because the result was bad. I’ll even go out on a limb and say some computer whiz ran the data and saw it was bad, so it was buried.
