Charles Birnbaum, president and CEO of the nonprofit Cultural Landscape Foundation, spoke to the Chicago Sun-Times on Sunday and said that “Altogether the confiscation of 20-plus acres for the Obama Presidential Center, golf course consolidation and expansion, new roads, impacts on the lakefront, loss of historic trees, and a parking garage at the Midway, result in a massive adverse effect on the National Register of Historic Places designated park.”
