Harper Court to be sold

The Hyde Park Herald reports that the Harper Court Arts Council is going to sell its Harper Court property because the value of its property is a lot higher than the low rents it charges it's crappy shops.This has been rumored for awhile, but it looks like it is really going to happen this time.I'm sure the Herald and the Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Conference (which represent the narrowest imaginable slice of Hyde Park-Kenwood residents) will go bananas trying to protect the noble mission of Harper Court, but if they think it is that important then they should pony up the cash to buy the property.Something tells me they don't care about it that much though.
