It would be pretty cool if this was the completed result ...

“I like this project because it’s not political and the light shines on us all,” So says
Elise LeBovit

There is siginificant cost, there are archetectural and archeological issues, and there are
environmental concerns... Should be fascinating to watch the progress of the process.
There are two pips in a beaut, four beauts in a lulu,
eight lulus in a doozy, and sixteen doozies in a humdinger.
No one knows how many humdingers there are in a lollapalooza.

Its nice to see that some action is being taken on this matter. Still, this committee had better work fast. 50 feet isn't much room, and you have to have space in front of the lighthouse for the equipment. Time is short.
