Mayoral candidates hold to tower positions

[VIDEO] The four people who want to be Evanston’s next mayor were asked again Sunday whether they support the City Council’s decision to permit a 385-foot height limit on the Fountain Square block downtown.

And, as they have before, they split on the issue. Barnaby Dinges and Stuart Opdycke said they favor the new limit while Jeanne Lindwall and Elizabeth Tisdahl says the limit isn’t restrictive enough.

Sunday’s forum, held at the Norris Center on the Northwestern University campus, was sponsored by the Evanston League of Women Voters.

The full forum is scheduled to be broadcast on cable channel 16 later this month. Check the Evanston Community Media Center website for the details.
