Excerpts from nbcchicago.com:

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot says the proposed police and fire training facility that is opposed by activists is likely to cost more than previously estimated. She says as it’s currently designed, the projected $95 million facility is unlikely to meet the needs of first responders the police department and fire department, particularly firefighters. She doesn’t know what the ultimate costs will be, but she wants it to be the best-in-class training facility for first responders anywhere in the country.

Opponents contend the proposed facility is a waste of money that should go toward education, job training, and mental health services.
