sudler-sothebys-logo28 September 2009 ? With today?s announcement that President Obama will be going to Copenhagen for the final pitch on Friday to the International Olympic Committee on Friday, October 2, 2009 Chicagoans are feeling confident that we will be getting the 2016 Olympics. Plans for much needed work on replacing infrastructure, expanding public transportation, and what will be done with large parcels of vacant land are contingent on having the Olympics in Chicago. The decision the IOC make?s on Friday will shape the future of many of Chicago?s neighborhoods, most especially the former Michael Reese Hospital Campus along Chicago?s lakefront and the West Side, although there will be venues throughout the region. In the current economy, it appears there is no master plan for moving the city?s needs forward without the benefit of public and private funds that will be obtained to get Chicago ?Olympic Ready.?
