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.

What's   New?

 

Aldermanic elections are scheduled for Tuesday, February 24th, 2015. Alderman Smith will run against three other candidates for reelection.  

 

All four candidates have pledged in writing to uphold the no lights status quo.
