Breaking: Friends of the Parks may drop lawsuit over Lucas Museum in Chicago

According to a report by the Chicago Sun Times, public space advocacy group Friends of the Parks (FOTP) has voted to drop the lawsuit against the City of Chicago blocking the Lucas Museum of Narrative Arts.

The Sun Times quotes a “highly placed source” as saying the board voted to restart negotiations to “move forward with the Lucas Museum.” The Sun-Times also reported this week that Mayor Rahm Emanuel was attempting to persuade FOTP to drop the lawsuit by supporting one of the groups other projects—the “Last Four Miles.” This proposal would expand access to lake Michigan by turning more of the Lakefront into public land.
