[VIDEO] The story above aired Tuesday night on our local ABC affiliate. Worlee linked the coming of Whole Foods Market to Englewood with the ongoing project to expand a freight railyard nearby. It's often advertised as Mayor Rahm Emanuel's attempt to keep Chicago a hub for rail transportation.
We have chronicled this over time here and we even showed a video from Gaper's Block on the human toll of this project. In order to expand this railyard the whole community where this railyard is located will have to be destroyed. Of course those who own homes in that area will be compensated and what about those that don't want to leave.
Let's bear in mind that while it seems this is still on the minds of many Englewood residents, back in August this project was blocked by the Chicago Planning Commission. According to this story the commission my decide to bring this project back on track.
