Good news from the folks at "Fix Wilson Yard." According to their September Newsletter, they have raised $40,000 from the contributions of concerned residents to file a lawsuit to stop the Wilson Yard plan in it's current form. They have also notified the city of their intent to file a lawsuit.
From the newsletter:
"Our lawyers are hard at work on the case, and we are getting closer to filing a complaint. On Thursday, September 4th they sent this letter to Mara Georges, Corporation Counsel for the City of Chicago notifying them of our intention to file a lawsuit."
