As retaliation for agreeing to include the required amount of affordable units in a proposed planned development in the 41st Ward, Ald. Napolitano continues to use his aldermanic prerogative to keep it from being built. Use this form to ask members of the City Council Zoning Committee to refuse to assist him in this effort, and approve the GlenStar O'Hare development--which would include 30 on-site affordable units.

Fill out this form to tell your state lawmakers to support the effort Lift the Ban!
