Editor’s note: This was supposed to run last week, but we screwed up.

Dear Santa, on my wish list this year is that the Oak Park village board not approve the huge tower being proposed for Forest and Lake. It will not be a friendly neighbor to those around it because of its height and the resulting noise and air pollution from its population density.

I do wish the Oak Park village board would consider approval of something architecturally wonderful on the site that would fit in with its current neighbors and that would outshine the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright (the current building proposal is stuffed into a small space, sort of like your bag of toys when you start out on Christmas Eve.)

Hoping I get my wish, because I still believe …
