FREE INKLE ALERT

Discussed since 1968 a new airport in Peotone has yet to move ahead. Even the projects’s website timeline shows no activity since 2008. Topic still up for debate in recent elections (10th paragraph).

Doubtful anything is going to change in the next couple of weeks. Why this hasn’t traded to 0 is beyond me. I’ve certainly done my share in pushing it that way.

Chicago Sun-Times: “As a third Chicago airport, Peotone is largely in neutral.”

And, the answer is?

Certainly not as of the end of the market. Illinois politicians still talk about it but I think the key quote from the linked article is:

“I have serious doubts that in your lifetime or mine we’ll ever see the Peotone airport,” Soliday said.
