NU Parking Lot-Support the Agreement and the Neighbors

~~Over the past 6 weeks, Northwestern, the neighbors, and the city worked to arrive at a mutually agreeable solution for the parking lot lighting and alley. I would like to thank Alan Anderson, NU Neighborhood Relations, and John D’Angelo, NU Facilities Management, for working so well with the neighbors.  Northwestern has been easy to work with during the process, they have been receptive to neighbor concerns and willing to change some design points. The neighbors have been willing to compromise to help NU meet what they need to accomplish.
