Friends of Meigs Can't Afford Their Rights
The Friends of Meigs Field tell us that
they have decided not to proceed with an appeal to the Illinois
State Supreme Court of their case to reopen Meigs Field.
They wrote, "Many people responded to our call for pledges
toward the effort, but the total raised in the short amount of time
available fell short of the significant sum required (over
$100,000) to cover expected legal expenses in the event of a
positive ruling by the Court."
If you contributed, you have choices:
Those who pledged toward the effort will be given the option of
withdrawing their pledge or applying it to the development of the
plan for reopening Meigs as a combination park-airport.
The always-gracious Friends of Meigs Field wanted to extend a
"'Thank you' to all of the generous supporters who answered the
Fighting for rights: Friends of Meigs can do that. When you have
to buy them back -- that's the end.
