Visitors enjoy the updated Buckingham Fountain area. Work on 82-year-old landmark now on hold due to a 'tough economy.' Though part of the renovation has been completed, Chicago Park District officials said the project would miss its May 30 completion date. "This is strictly a fundraising issue," Park District spokeswoman Jessica Maxey-Faulkner said. "We would like to start on Phase 2, but there isn't enough money."
