No Lights Today


Today there are no stadium lights on the Francis W. Parker School field because of a concerted effort by neighbors and 43rd Ward residents to stop Parker's plans in 2011.

How We Got Here


On January 11th, 2011, Parker School announced plans to install stadium lights on its Lincoln Park field:  four six-story light towers, lights on as early as 4:30 PM and as late as 9:00 PM; up to 100 lighted nights.  


All of that in the middle of a residential neigborhood and across the street from some of Chicago's most prized public areas:  the Zoo, the Grandmothers' Gardens, and the Conservatory.

Aldermanic Run-off


The Aldermanic run-off election is scheduled for Tuesday, April 7th, 2015.  


Both Michele Smith and Caroline Vickrey have pledged in writing to uphold the no lights status quo.
