This website has a good video about Bucktown, which butts up to WP -
www.cltvhomesplus.com . It's under the "your home, your community" section of the video player.

It's a shame that under 1st Ward Alderman Manny Flores, and now, recently elected clone Waugespeck (sp?) and their progressive liberal agendas the area will never develop to the potential it once had. Case in point, the blighted intersection of Division, Milwaukee, & Ashland. Walgreens was basically pleading to redeveloped the south west corner where Pizza Hut once stood. But no go thanks to Flores! In addition, a national chain bookstore was attempting to go in on Division a few blocks west of the above mentioned intersetion, once again doesn't really fit in with what the Alderman is envisioning for the area. The community instead ended up with some crap bohemian coffee house (Blend) that lasted about 1.5 years and now sits vacant. But if your name is Jose and want to open a taco stand, you're in! Nothing commerical with any re-investment potential is ever sanctioned. This would of course tip the scales of gentrification, and we can't have that now can we guys? What these identical agendas are actually doing is stifiling all real community reinvestment potential to promote a urban ghetto agenda under the guise of "affordable housing!" Wake up you 1st & 32nd Ward progressives - it's your property values being flushed!

not fooled is funny. you've got it completely opposite - those protections are protecting property values. if you want the suburbs, go move there.
