Letter to Illinois Department of Natural Resources regarding the Lakefront Athletic and Recreational Complex plan

CSNA sent a letter to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) commenting on the proposed plans to build a Lakefront Athletic and Recreational Complex (LARC) on Northwestern University's landfill.  We object to the plan as proposed. CSNA has endorsed the Rivers, Lakes and Streams Act and public trust doctrine in commenting on NU’s proposed expansion and construction of a lakefront athletic and recreational complex.

The letter is here below under 'Read more'.
