Event description

Description

Gentrification. Investment. Displacement. Development. Revitalization.

Complex forces are at work changing neighborhoods across America.

What is the situation in South Shore?

Across our city, neighborhoods like South Shore are facing the forces of gentrification, economic development, and reinvestment. How is housing within our community being impacted by these forces? What are your thoughts? The Planning Coalition (TPC) in conjunction with Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago (NHS) is hosting a series of focus groups around this question to better understand housing change from your unique perspective. Why? This is the first step in a series of fact-finding discussions being hosted by TPC that will help in the development of an Economic Impact Study for the South Eastside.

Call to Action: We need to hear from you! Your opinions, perspectives, and experiences are important to us as we start the community planning process.

Who should attend the focus groups? Residents of the South Shore including renters, landlords, homeowners, developers/real estate professionals and business owners of all ages. Participate in one of the three focus groups dates listed below. Each focus group will be exactly the same and moderated by a community resident. We need our community to meet everyone’s needs. We need your voice!
