This Is Where Mayor Dean's Budget Cuts Damage Neighborhoods Most

CM Emily Evans blogs the depressing news on the proposed cuts to Metro Planning, Libraries, and Parks. She mentions that Planning is popular with her constituents, and so I'm kind of wondering what they think of the flap over the possible discharge of neighborhood-friendly David Kleinfelter. CM Evans lets us know about cutbacks in library hours, including one of the libraries proximate to Salemtown: Looby (MetroCenter). Finally, since Parks will likely be getting a +11% cut to their budget (especially since no council members are acting like they are going to push for changes at third reading), I would like to know how that will affect restoration of the Morgan Park playground and greenway spur.
