Jan. 19, 2012

City Council is scheduled to meet Thursday to consider a new Chicago ward map; WBEZ’s Sam Hudzik and Chip Mitchell check in with the latest news. Plus, former 46th Ward Alderman Helen Shiller recounts her experiences working through two different mapping processes. Then, the Chicago Sun-Times recently reported that Zion city officials have discussed selling City Hall. Eight Forty-Eight asks listeners what they would sell to make some extra dough. When times are tough, what would you put on the auction block? Call 312-923-9239, hit up @848 on Twitter or e-mail at 848@wbez.org. And, Eight Forty-Eight talks with photographer and sociologist David Schalliol about his new project documenting local buildings that have been slated for demolition. WBEZ architecture blogger Lee Bey also joins the conversation.
