Here are the two plans that have been submitted to the Board:
Facilities and Digital Library Plan-- This is the original "vision" that was distributed to the board in August for consideration, with the intention of officially addressing the concept of this proposal at a later time.
-- This is the proposal that was handed out to the board in November. Please note that the plan, although it discusses moving into the Sullivan Center, is really the Facilities and Digital Library Plan, snuggled slyly into a proposal about acquiring the Sullivan Center.
The reason for this is Secrecy. By cloaking the proposal this way, the Board is able to meet in a closed session under 5ILCS 120/2 which lists an exception to the provision that states that "all meetings of public bodies shall be open to the public." The exception reads as follows: "A public body may hold closed meeting to discuss... the purchase or lease of real property for the use of the public body, including meetings held for the purpose of discussing whether a particular parcel should be acquired"
The Board was asked to vote on this proposal when it was handed out in November. Thankfully they declined to vote on a proposal they had not had the time to read
