^South Loop Nieghbors have been a full blown NIMBY organization for quite some time. Greater South Loop Association and the South Loop Planning board are the voices of reason which have balanced the scale in favor of previous developements in the area. South Loop Neighbors completly opposed the Lannar Project and Burnham Pointe on Polk Street because Peter Ziv is one of SLN's board members, who by the way uses homeless people to picket and show an 'opposition mass' to new development (or so I am told). SLN suffers from a major case of the shut the door behind them mentality.
