43rd Ward Alderman Candidate Jacob Ringer Statement on Announcement of Commitment for New School as Part of Lincoln Yards Project

“Since the announcement of the Lincoln Yards Development Project, I have been concerned that there was no discussion of how the proposal would impact our community schools. I have repeatedly called for CPS to have a voice at the discussions of the development. Throughout my campaign for 43rd Ward Alderman, I have heard repeatedly from residents near the development of their concerns that adding 50,000 people to the area would impact the quality of education at all our neighborhood schools but particularly at Oscar Mayer.

Today’s announcement by Andy Gloor of Sterling Bay that he is committed to building a school at the development is a victory for the residents of the area and is a result of neighbors coming together to force potential school overcrowding to be addressed now.”
