Board requests IDOT halt South Suburban Airport property condemnations
Resolution calls for moratorium until Governor's Office completes review of project
"The property owners and residents in the footprint of the proposed third airport are absolutely entitled to courtesy and respect for their legal rights," said board member Judy Ogalla (R-Monee), who represents the district affected by the airport development. "It is only right and prudent to respect everyone's property rights and not allow the use of condemnation anytime a project is without full approval and funding. We need to provide relief to the families in the airport's footprint that face great uncertainty over the future of their homes and land."
