del Valle supports West Edgewater Park

Apparently the WEAR block club incorrectly stated that Gery Chico was the only mayoral candidate to respond to their questionnaire:

Mayoral Candidate Miguel del Valle Endorses West Edgewater Park
February 17, 2011 (CHICAGO)–City Clerk and mayoral candidate Miguel del Valle pledged his support for the West Edgewater Park project.

Ten years is long enough for an abandoned building to detract from a neighborhood, del Valle said. I believe the West Edgewater Area Residents know whats best for their neighborhood, and I, as mayor, will provide the support they need to carry out their plan.

The park would occupy the space once used by the Edgewater Medical Center. The center closed ten years ago, and the West Edgewater Area Residents have since advocated for an urban park in their neighborhood.
