But first, let us reintroduce Sustainable Susan as our 21st Century update of Rosie The Riveter. But the true impact of these advocates is how their work is a spark-plug for the millions of small daily changes that add up to the solutions that, in the final analysis, are needed to make Chicagoland a leader again.
Susan also symbolizes how little daily changes everywhere add up to millions in our large region. We will start with those groups already acknowledged for their success by having been awarded the prestigious Burnham Award from the Metropolitan Planning Council.
Because these recipients are our metropolis’ great innovators, we will learn a lot from them. With an important new regional plan to be unveiled for discussion in June 2010, we now apply Chicago’s program to the region.
We selected Beyond Burnham book because it is the best and most current explanation of today’s juncture in history. Shelley Poticha, Director of the Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities for the U.S. For example… if we use cars less, then households save more while government can reduce road maintenance costs and transit subsidies; and the savings can all be invested to make future savings. Behavior changes -- as simple as using autos less -- often start as the ideas of citizen groups. Our review will reinforce the lessons learned so the entrepreneurial energy of other citizens in multiple communities will have a better chance of repeating the original success. With the benefit of hindsight, we will analyze what they did right and the obstacles they were up against; and perhaps still are. 1 Book, 1 Chicagoland is modeled after Chicago’s annual program in which all residents are invited to read and talk about one book as a community. We ask all staff and citizens to read one book and discuss how the region should work together as a community so it grows best.


MPC is more than our region’s leader; in offering these policy lessons, MPC also serves as a national model. She also oversees this activity’s historical reviews of citizen groups who have received awards as regional and sub- regional advocates.
We will try to analyze one recipient a month; backing up our research with interviews and synthesizing a short essay of lessons- learned.
But no story will be as great as the ones we will have to write over the next two or three decades… if Chicagoland is to become a global leader in the emerging economy. Last year’s book was The Plan of Chicago to coincide with the Centennial of Burnham’s plan of the same name.
If we are to produce a Plan that will serve us as well in the 21st Century as Burnham’s Plan did for the 20th Century, we must understand the last 60 years of regional planning in Chicagoland.
A  Due to the format of the B of A email, and the copious amounts of "filler" statements they use; the series is a bit difficult to follow. A  I usually write correspondence to fit the lowest common denominator, but how low can one go?A  Although I'm willing to bet that if I reverted to primal grunts, and what could be considered a primitive, yet well understood gesture even in our modern world; that someone on the other side of the Banking Center counter might have their mind bulb flash, if only momentarily. I have a few of my portion of the email, as I cut and pasted it into my regular email service; don't know how they lost theirs.
They relate to the Merlin Teller, and how a fully paid balance of mine is being carried on their books as an outstanding balance on their system for months after I paid the account in full, probably sometime in October of 2007. I was repeatedlyA  told this same information by various B of AA  staff that I spoke with in person, numerous times, in various locations, but I did not record the conversations and wish that I had.
When first asked how and why they would do that; as it didn't sound logical or legal to me, I was informed by more than one staff person at more than one branch that it was expected to be carried for 16 to 19 Additional months!A  That is some kind of accounting system.
A  That didn't sound accurate, as I was able to access the information on both the old 3732 account AND the new account until approximately January of 2008, and the phone rep I spoke who made arrangements for a balance transfer from another VISA Account I have at another bank for me on either April 3 or 4, 2008, said he would have copies of those 3732 statements mailed to me that day, at no charge to me.A  (I have received an envelope at my P. Box from B of A; I'll expect the contents are the account statements, but won't know for certain until they are forwarded to me.


A  Bank of America?A  I'm almost on their side for this particular incident; as I know that avoiding lawsuits and payouts is high on their priority list. Unless some staffer slipped up, yapped out my private account activity, and didn't take time to note it in my file.
Please do your employer a favor, and provide me with the written documentation that I have repeatedly requested.A  Thanks for your cooperation. Stockton: Please forward this email to someone up the ladder who can provide WRITTEN confirmation and information on who requested, and was provided, information on my Visa Card ending in 3732, activity in July or August of 2007.
Rose, Good afternoon and thank you for contacting Bank of America in regards to account documentation. For B of A to be carrying its customers former credits and debits on their books for 16 plus months would be an accounting nightmare, in addition to being out of compliance with several Federal Banking Regulations. Please adjust all records statingA A  any balance due on my past and present Visa accounts to reflect the current credit balance only.A  Also, please update day ph. A  But do note that when I asked him a specific question about them, he couldn't answer it.
A  And he didn't volunteer any details on the account maintenance that he appeared to have access to.A A  A A  This message is not flagged. A Can you please provide me with your 16 digit credit card number so I can review your account? Gordon: The minimum payment is 1% of your balance and any finance charges and applicable fees. The system will not allow the rate to change until the cycle closes and a new cycle starts.
