In related news, the Archdiocese of Chicago anticipates to gain $15 million from a 40 acre sale of land in Libertyville to a housing developer:
A Lake County judge has overruled Libertyville officials' decision in 2017 to deny a 148-house development on property at the former Mundelein Seminary. The decision Friday by Lake County Judge Michael Fusz now allows the Catholic Bishop of Chicago and its contracted buyer to proceed. The ruling comes after the Archdiocese of Chicago quickly filed a lawsuit once Libertyville denied proposed zoning changes and permits for the project in 2017.

Local residents were, if nothing else, righteously indignant. They raised a holy stink over the deal:
The issue galvanized neighbors in opposition. Hundreds attended public hearings and the village board meeting where the final decisions were made.

Others however were eager to defend the deal. One celestial spokesman spoke on condition of celestiality: "We had wanted to sell the land to Foxconn. But they got a better deal in Wisconsin."

That's all your LakeCountyEye has. Nothing to see here, get off the lawn.
