"Over the past twenty years with all the back and forth on potential development plans. Some north Mondale residents have become skeptical that a major development will ever come to the land where the mountain once stood, but they have always seen the lots potential to address the neighborhoods needs. What do you want on the lie? If you could snap your fingers and have sometimes school ago Oh, their there. stores or some that been we go so far to the stores being a senior black to see maybe senior housing there. Like to see something that will is going to employ people.

The have Rindt this in Chicago community centers something to build our children. I mean, anything a set of keep looking at all these Laugh. laugh. But for all the attributes that make this lot a prime piece of real estate. There are also some very real practical hurdles to redeveloping land. We started looking into those hurdles after we heard about the spacesuits. We heard about them from Gladys Woodson the block club president who spent so many years fighting John Christopher when she moved to north Lauderdale from her hometown of Vance Mississippi forty three years ago, she was considered the baby of the block now she's become the neighborhood matriarch and she still runs what's left of her block club. The first time. I went to the site with MS Woodson. She told me something that would echo through the conversations. I'd later have with other north Lonzo residents of this stuff. They don't hassle and you ask me how to pass call when the people come to remove. They was win math and spacesuit when she says spacesuits, she's talking about has not suits, or at least the white suits. Helmets. EPA officials wore when they came to inspect the lot. After silver shovel broke to me when I walked over there. I shouldn't have been over there and ever since the cleanup a question has lingered for MS Woodson and others how contaminated are these lots today? The city has never told them the answer to this question is important, not just for their peace of mind. But because the answer has implications for what can be built on the lot today soil samples from the lot Show Low levels of heavy metals in the dirt metals, like, lead, arsenic, and mercury. Those contaminants were likely there long before John Christopher turned the site into an illegal construction, debris dump they likely come from the factories that used to be on the lot including a tobacco factory a rubber factory and a door hinge factory. So the site is contaminated, but it's not a Superfund site land, the poses a serious danger to the general public. These lots are called brownfields, the contamination levels here are on par with thousands of other empty host industrial lots around the city, most of which are also majority black and Brown neighborhoods. But if a developer wants to build anything on a brownfield, they often have to jump through hoops to meet safety standards that would be easier to achieve on a pristine piece of land. There are many options for making a brownfield safe. The more expensive route involves digging down several feet hauling out, the contaminated soil and hauling in tons of clean soil as a replacement, but the larger lot in north Lauderdale is Twenty-one swear acres and remediating a partial that big gets very expensive, very fast one cheaper option is to cap the land with something like concrete to create a barrier between the contaminated soil and the people around it that was the plan proposed for the movie studio. So there are additional hurdles to developing a brownfield site. Hurdles that have come into play in the most recent attempts to redevelop this land Johnny's gonna pick it back up from here.

Michelle Obama was born and raised on the south side. The couple raised their children there and the president taught law at the university of Chicago given all that most Northland residents we heard from weren't surprised that the Obamas chose the south side over the west side, but they were still disappointed. Obama won the presidency with declarations of hope and change. If he was a big on change, what more more area need change than this uh, Chicago. The worst. During the nineteen Ninety-six cleanup, mayor Daley had stood on the lot and reclaimed. We will work tirelessly until the site can be an asset to the north Lauderdale community instead of a liability and if the site of John Christopher's illegal dump had been transformed into a landmark devoted to the nation's first black president, it would have meant that the promises. Made to the neighborhood in the wake of silver shovel weren't empty after all. But even after this plan fell through a third plan emerged it wasn't as flashy as movie studio or presidential library.

He told the Chicago Tribune in two thousand two that there was no guarantee the studio would ever be built over the next few years news articles would declare the project back on again with a vengeance.
