A&N Mortgage Logo14 September 2009 ? As Chicago awaits the October 2, 2009 announcement of the decision of the International Olympic Committee, 2nd Ward Alderman Robert Fioretti addressed  the Chicago Association of Realtors Government Affairs Committee on Friday. Alderman Fioretti spoke about the unique opportunity the 2016 Olympic games would present for the City of Chicago: 300,000 jobs expected to be created, more than $22 billion generated, and a boost to the City’s transit infrastructure. The City Council voted last week on an ordinance that will provide transparency and openness for the entire process. The impact of the upcoming decision will dictate many factors going forward for the City including what will be done with the 37 acres of the former Michael Reese Hospital as well much of the budgets and infrastructure in the coming years.
