I agree with Dan Haley about the demented waste of retail space in the Lake/Oak Park district and other business areas in the village. The tae kwon do school is a clear abuse of the retail mission, and an eyesore of the first rank. Whoever made this decision should be fired.

What’s next? Massage parlors, currency exchanges and gentlemen’s clubs? The village seems to be earnestly pursuing a plan that will convert our valuable retail space into something resembling a strip mall in Addison. Perhaps village hall should just dispense with the pretense that we live in a classy suburb and change Oak Park’s name to Pottersville.
