May the Zoning Board Be with You

Now that Chicago has wrested the (reputedly!) world-class Lucas Museum of Narrative Art away from San Francisco, the project has stirred up exactly the sort of battle over waterfront preservation that Lucas thought he could escape simply by leaving the Presidio. Now Chicago's open-space defenders are vowing to block the $1 billion project from the agreed-upon lakeside site. They contend that a private museum would violate city ordinances intended to preserve the environs of Lake Michigan for the public. Now might be a good time for Oakland to remind Lucas of its existence. [The Hollywood Reporter/previously]
