Should proposals include the proposed MSUFCU project on the City Lot #4?

On March 10, 2020, the voters will consider a sale of the City-owned land at the northwest corner of Albert Ave and Abbot Road (City Lot #4). MSUFCU is proposing to construct a 5-8 story office building on Albert Avenue Lot #4, adjacent to this site. Plans for the development proposal are expected to be finalized in the coming months. If the voters approve the sale and MSUFCU submits development plans, they will be subject to the normal process and approvals for the site. It at the developer's discretion whether they choose to include, or not include, the MSUFCU proposed project in their proposal. Note that the re-alignment of Albert Avenue is expected to occur regardless, as the work is part of the Park District redevelopment project.
