Successful Economic Development in Disadvantaged Neighborhoods
Activity Code: W023
Date: Monday, April 15
For years the 34th Ward on Chicago’s South Side has faced a declining population and expanding urban blight. Yet in spite of these conditions, the ward has attracted significant new development by using tax-increment financing and other economic development tools. Visit three different projects—the Marshfield Plaza Shopping Center, Renaissance Estates (an 86-unit townhouse project), and the Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center—and learn how each was built. Transportation: Motorcoach.
