At the last meeting of the Normal Town Council citizens showed up to protest the latest development plan for Uptown: https://blnnews.com/2018/10/16/normal-citizens-showed-up-no-minds-changed/
Two speakers decried the plan to destroy more historic buildings. The Council didn’t care and passed the plan anyway.
There is now a petition on-line to save the mural: https://www.change.org/p/town-of-normal-city-council-save-the-mural-save-our-money
It has almost 3000 signatures!
They want to get to 5000 signatures and then present them to the Council.
If you think the historic buildings should be saved, click the link and sign.
(You wouldn’t have this problem if 12 more people had voted for Marc Tiritilli)
