Elgin Academy Media, Science and Fine Arts Center

7 December 2006 RS No Comment

Huzzah, the building looks better than it did in their first rendering! Thanks to the Downtown Elgin blog for the picture and info (click here for more views and info on the Elgin Academy site). Here’s what Chris Bailey had to say about the city financing this private school’s building:

By arguing that $500,000 would buy the city some dates at Elgin Academy’s proposed $9.5 million Media, Science and Fine Arts Center, council members were expecting city residents not to notice they would be subsidizing rich, mostly out-of-town parents who can afford to pay $10,000 to $15,000 per year to send their kids to school.

Ain’t dat da truth.
