In 10 years we'll regret it, just like we regret losing the other buildings in Chicago Heights -- the Victoria Hotel and the Lincoln-Dixie theater. We have demolished enough masterpieces. That is a wonderful, wonderful building.
According to the ordinance, changes that are requested to take place to designated historic landmarks must be referred to the Chicago Heights Preservation Committee for consideration.
The City Council really doesn't care about the Historic Preservation Committee or about historic preservation.
The procedure is that the committee makes its recommendation to the City Council and, of course, the City Council has the final authority on this.
