Save the Wisdom Bridge Theatre

Developers: Richard Aronson and Scott Sinar

Email blast from Alderman Joe Moore: Yes

Developer history of campaign contributions to Alderman Joe Moore: Yes


Attend this meeting to oppose the demolition of the Historic Wisdom Bridge Theatre. Rich Aronson is known as a lightweight developer who often buckles under pressure.

As with all 49th Ward developer meetings, Alderman Joe Moore has previously been paid-off and will be in support of the project.

Developers stick together, so many former pay-offs will be seeded in the meeting to show support. Although the deck is loaded, outstanding community opposition can sink this project.


Please attend the meeting at:

Rogers Park in 1,000 Words

Rogers Park in 1,000 Words is relied upon by many readers when deciding which activities to attend and which businesses and community organizations to support. Some visit for the photography and video footage, while others have stated that they chose to reside in Rogers Park after researching our community on RP1000.
