There will be a groundbreaking for the Obama Presidential Library at some point, but it’s taking longer than expected because of… well, read it for yourself:

If you think about it, this is the perfect tribute to the former president:

Construction on former President Barack Obama’s center was to start this year. However, the Obama Foundation says it now plans to break ground for the half-billion-dollar project sometime in 2019.

Before the presidential center can be built, the federal government will review its impact on Jackson Park. The park on the city’s South Side is on the National Register of Historic Places. The project’s environmental effects will also be analyzed. Any adverse effects must be resolved before construction is allowed.

How fitting!


Maybe they could just construct the library completely out of red tape for the perfect tribute!
