ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The Obama Foundation announces, Wednesday (August 3) that Chicago's Jackson Park will be the site of the future Obama Presidential Center. Speaking at the Museum of Science and Industry, Obama Foundation Board Chairman Martin Nesbitt said it's the first time in U.S. history that a presidential center will be in the heart of an urban community -- in the heart of the South Side where the First Family lived for many years. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said, "There are three cities in the U-S that have north of 50-million visitors--New York, Orlando and Chicago. And with these investment we will continue to grow the economy and the world can come to Chicago."
