He's frustrated because he met with Mayor Lightfoot last week to ask about this exact problem. I met with her last week. Specifically to talk about what the plan would be for large crowds downtown. We got no details on that meeting. I continuously pushed for details. I asked about things like training. I asked about things like resource deployment. I asked about things like Central Command didn't get any answers. It didn't sound like there was a plan. Hopkins said. If there was a plan in place, he doesn't think it worked. Chicago activist Jamal Green offered his perspective on the looting, saying there's a bigger picture to consider the looting is happening again. And we can denounce it will tell folks to stop. But we have to really tackle the real problem or is going to continue happening because people are angry and and we're Coben and being in houses, allowing people to really mess that anger and figure out what they're going to do. Green said He doesn't agree with the mayor that looters should face tougher consequences. In the criminal justice system. He believes more policing isn't the answer.

"May we don't have much more time here alderman but I want to ask you about one more thing here something coming up for city council to consider now the recreational marijuana is here and may our life it said that there is an urgent need for it to find spots for people to be able to smoke marijuana legally where should it be what should you do this is what counsel's about you're considering it right now yeah the proposal is to allow tobacco shops and a hookah lounges places that exist like that there's actually forty two of them right now in Chicago they're not licensed to allow cannabis to be smoke there but different types of tobacco products are used there they have sent elation systems at cetera the problem is we legalize this and at the same time we say well it's legal to own and legal to consume in your home but if you don't have a home or you can do that for example if you're in an apartment or a condo building or expand you can't smoke in your vehicle you can't smoke on the street you can't smoke in a park you can't smoke in a bar where are you going to be able to smoke this product so we really have an answer that question and this was the mayor's proposal to allow some of these tobacco of facilities to smoke my concern would be that the dispensaries may want to incorporate a smoker's lounge into their operation and that's a problem for me because some of the dispensaries that have been looking in my ward are not generating the type of opposition that you might expect because were promising the neighborhood people just gonna buy it they're they're not gonna use it there once you say well they're gonna have a lounge and it's going to be a big party that changes the dynamics and you start to get a lot more localised opposition so I'm not sure how this is going to play out you can't smoke in your car I didn't I didn't know that you cannot send you can't be on the city streets I know that you you can't be in public yet in a park or anything like that but in your car also not a possibility a similar to alcohol you can transported you need to have it sealed in a container in the trunk of your car not accessible to the driver United usually going outside with the car off outside your house still not okay still can't be smoking it in your vehicle because then the assumption is you're going to finish smoking and drive your vehicle and then you're an impaired driver okay so the push to try to find a legitimate spot for people to be able to do this do you still have some resolution it sounds like it's it's it's we work yeah I actually I I temporarily stepped in due to chair the committee that heard this last week and now I think the votes may have been there at one point but we had different alderman coming and going because there were other meetings going on at the same point in time so it would have been a roll call there would have been no votes I don't know how this plays out we'll have to see who shows up tomorrow and if the mayor's legislative team is able to put together a roll call vote on it will have to see we'll see all right alderman Brian Hopkins thanks for coming by the studio we always like seeing you and hearing what's going on your ward in across the city so thanks for your

"By wintrust Chicago's Bank on Chicago's very own seven twenty WGN Steve Bertrand and the AllState skyline studio, and I'm glad you're there wherever you are. Glad playing Senate is on the phone line from from Crain's Chicago business joins us on most Wednesdays Frank. How was your thanksgiving? Very very nice. I'm still Turkey. I hope it's been refrigerated or maybe even frozen because it could be getting old by Alfred. Yeah. You thought out you put some cranberries on it? All good save some for the for the big ten championship game on Saturday. Bring out a feast for that. I know you must be excited about that. Fun game. Okay. So this Lincoln yards project you and I have talked about it. I've talked with other people about it. They could be really transformative project for the north side on either side looks like of the Chicago river along the Kennedy not too far north, and so they were met with some community opposition. I think that they wanted more Greenspace or things like that. So the developers sterling bay sort of tweak things came up with another plan this week. Right. So tell me about the changes in whether or not that'll be enough to win approval. Yes. So there are two significant changes after input from all the unity groups developer is going to increase the open space significantly. They say that the open air clauses and river walk swimming, along the art branch of the river would now total almost twenty one acres publicly accessible open space, and that's up from thirteen point four acres under the initial plan. And that doesn't include this big twenty thousand seat soccer stadium, planning for the southern end of the of the development. So that's one of the two main changes the other change is that they have cut down the projected height of the buildings the building some of them were, you know, as high as seventy story plan and now the tallest tower under the new plan would be about fifty stories. So they've cut a total of one hundred stories of buildings out of the plan overall increased open space but fifty six percent. Those are the headlines. That are hoping that alderman Brian Hopkins in the second award will give the green light based on somewhat scaled back then and show. You know, this is one of those things sometimes when you talk about it often enough long enough that you forget that you don't actually know the particulars. So, but we're talking about either side of the Chicago river, I'm gonna say roughly a little bit north of where the Morton salt warehouse is is that is that a pretty good location value. I was gonna say that's always my touchstone. I think of you know, what everybody thinks of when they drive by candidates at Morton salt building area north of that. And then if you're a music fan, the hideouts is kind of a part of that whole whole mix, and they're trying to make sure that that remains could be like that how that like the house in up, you know, with all the little bar left. But also go there for the. Yeah. That that's the area that we're talking about. Well, and I think Hopkins had a meeting with the folks. At the hideout in in residents here because they're trying to slow things down. In fact, there was calls that they they don't want movement on this entire project until there's a new mayor in a new city council. I don't know. What are they better probably zero? But I thought that was a reasonable request. Then great caught wrote a really wonderful. About importance to hide out. And and how it releases development, but people should check because live nations coming in that part of this deal is another concert venue, right? That would compete with folks like the hideout. Yeah. So it's again, there are some questions in the arts and entertainment community. Do we need this this many more venues program by by live nation? And there's something in your supposed to that. And the author says, hey, it's gonna be entertainment options for all still, you know, we talked about the Amazon HD, q or whatever and all of that. But this is something that's real. It's happening. It's on the books will will transform that area. And it's not that it would create a second downtown by any means, but sort of like a satellite urban center, I would think right. I mean, and it's going to happen. Almost like a suburb within a city in a way. Because you're right. It's like everything you would need to enjoy your life, cultural shopping, you know, workspaces open areas, it's all contained in that in that area. So the thought is you know, this is kind of a zone. I think the south loop with all the development going on down there. They're thinking about that in that way as well. You know that we've got these kind of. Metropolises? On the books out. I was in London with the group a few weeks ago, and we were on the on the Thames going down the Thames. And I'm sorry. I'm not going to remember the name of the neighborhood now, but it's down beyond the Docklands. But you leave downtown London go around to spend in there is really a second. It would be a major city in most countries that has sprung up a separate sort of independent metropolitan area within London, and it seems to me that in some ways. That's what would be the case here. Although not quite as big. Yeah. I agree. I think that that's a good good. A good model talk. You're the first one to introduce me to talk, and it was a way for high end restaurants to secure that people made reservations showed up, right? They had to put some cash in thirty seconds. She they've raised some more money, but they're spreading out route now beyond just like places like the linear right to where restaurants that not that. You would go to you go to those places, but maybe restaurants at a guy like me would go to. Yes. So Steve, you're brilliant. The thing I thought was most interesting about the stories that this is going to disrupt maybe more of the restaurant business with that whole thing where you have to pony up some money and make sure you show up, and if they do it at the high end restaurants, that's not such a big deal.
