After a long, hard battle the Oak Park Village Board approved a new 14-story development which includes a Trader Joe's. The arguments have been heated - people for the project argue that it'll bring more money to the suburb along with more people. Those against go so far as to say the new building will increase density and thus, "make us afraid to walk our own streets day or night." Geez, people, Trader Joe's sells delicious foods - not thugs.
