As Mayor Rahm Emanuel prepared to introduce a five-year housing plan to the City Council on Wednesday, some aldermen and housing activists were urging the administration to halt what they see as a loss of public housing in Chicago.
Some public housing residents who were displaced when their high-rise buildings were demolished on the South Side have been trying to pressure the Chicago Housing Authority to build replacement housing.
Wal-Mart is making another foray into Chicago’s South Side – this time in the Bronzeville neighborhood.
The Chicago Housing Authority is relocating 33 families living in row houses at what remains of the Cabrini-Green public housing development.
After 58 years, the once-sprawling Cabrini-Green housing complex finally closes its last high-rise today after the last tenant moved out today.
