This view of the Obama Presidential Center designs shows the museum forum and library

According to his original plan, the Obama Center was to be built across from the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago.
"Any community organizer worthy of the name would have put this museum on the west side of Washington Park, which desperately needs the economic revitalization and already has extensive public transportation in place, as well as easy access to the Dan Ryan [Expressway]", Mr. Lipson said.
Obama was born in Hawaii, but lived in Chicago after college and met the former first lady, Michelle, there. "So, as you might guess, I've been pretty hands-on in the plans for this centre - and Michelle has, too".
"A$3 s we've said before", wrote the Foundation, "the Obama Presidential Center will be an open, inclusive campus that integrates directly into Jackson Park"-a beloved historic park, whose reallocation for private development has drawn anger from the community the Foundation claims it intends to serve".
The Obama Foundation is submitting its plan this week to various city departments.
Public input was credited for significant changes made since the plans were initially announced, including the scrapping earlier this week of a parking garage slated for construction atop yet another historic park. The garage was initially slated to take up five acres on the historic Midway Plaisance, another part of the Chicago park system.
The Obama Center as now planned will not provide the promised development or economic benefits to the neighborhoods.
The center will "bring upwards of 760,000 people to the South Side every year" and "strengthen the economic climate in the region". "Not just listening for show, but actively incorporating what we've learned into the plans". It looks to many neighbors that the only new jobs created will be as staff to the Obama Center, hence the widespread support for a Community Benefits Agreement.
The center will also feature a forum where visitors can view performances, a library building, plaza, athletic center, and underground parking facility. The foundation has adapted plans after hearing from the community and has committed to projects and programs to improve lives on the Southside.
Member groups include the Black Youth Project 100, the Bronzeville Regional Collective and Southside Together Organizing for Power.
