Obama library land transfer on South Side OK'd by city council committee

(WLS)

The Chicago City Council is moving forward on plans to bring President Obama's library to Chicago's South Side.

A joint council committee voted to allow a transfer of 20 acres of land in either Washington Park or Jackson Park. The sites are part of a library proposal by the University of Chicago.

The full city council will vote on the land transfer on March 18.

It's one of three proposals up for consideration. A winner won't be announced until after Chicago's mayoral runoff.
