SAVE THE MARION STREET MALL. Ripping up the Marion Street Mall will do little if anything to bring business to Downtown. It WILL encourage more use of cars, destroy mature trees, and annihilate one of the few serene areas in the village for pedestrians, conversation, and relaxation. PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TODAY AND FORWARD IT TO FRIENDS!
SAVE THE MARION STREET MALL. Ripping up the Marion Street Mall will do little if anything to bring business to Downtown. It WILL encourage more use of cars, destroy a dozen mature trees, and annihilate one of the few areas in the village for pedestrians, conversation, and relaxation.
And it will cost the taxpayers of Oak Park $5 million!!
The current Village trustees admit destroying the Marion Street Mall will do little to stimulate commerce. But, their comment that "we have to do something" makes it clear it issimply a political move for the April elections.
After $100 million to "save the mall," the vacancy rate of 50% is the lowest it's ever been. Devastating our beautiful, serene area won't help. We want to keep our lovely tree-rich oasis; we want to be able to sit with our friends and look at the flower beds and listen to the birds. We know you probably do as well.
Please help us reach our goal of 5000 signatures by April 1. Tell the president and trustees that we WANT OUR MARION STREET MALL. With the election around the corner, maybe they'll listen.
Thank you for helping to Save the Marion Street Mall.
Voters and Citizens United to Save the Marion Street Mall
