The redevelopment of the former Salvation Army Freedom site was the Chicago Plan Commission’s only divided vote on Thursday, with members of the public chiming in about a lack of parking and union wages for construction workers.

Her voice thick with emotion, Zoning Administrator Patricia Scudiero paid tribute to her fellow commissioners and promised that she would not return to City Hall to lobby them on projects. [Heather Cherone/The Daily Line]
