Thanks for exemplary coverage

To the Editor:

We want to thank the Hyde Park Herald for demonstrating that, even in this age of social media, it is possible for a newspaper to get complete information about important developments out to its readers. In particular, we applaud you for making our press release and our recently completed professional traffic study “CDOT’s Transportation Plan for the Obama Presidential Center in Jackson Park: A Review and Alternative” available to your readership in your online edition May 10. The study goes a long way to demonstrating that there are alternatives to closing Cornell Drive. Many thanks for helping broaden this important community conversation.
