20. Seems they want that field for a soccer field to be used by a private school
"Chicago school boss Ron Huberman has ordered the heat turned off inside Whittier School field house in an attempt to freeze neighborhood parents out of a building they've been occupying for nearly a month, round the clock to prevent demolition. The gas shutoff left the field house without heat or hot water, just as night temperatures were due to fall to the 40s.

CPS wants to raze the structure, which it calls unsafe, and put in a soccer field to be used by a nearby private school, Cristo Rey. Parents want it converted to a library and parent center. Whittier is one of 160 Chicago elementary schools without a library.
