How the Oak Park village board can regain its credibility

The Oak Park village board is on the verge of losing all credibility. Some would say they have already lost all credibility, but I would disagree with those people for the moment. The board has made some pretty egregious mistakes, but they can gain some credibility on Dec. 5 by voting to accept the Oak Park Plan Commission’s recommendation to deny Sertus Capital Partner’s the ability to build a 20-story apartment skyscraper at the corner of Forest and Lake.
