COVID-19 hasn’t stopped construction. Plans for investment are still moving forward. There are a number of developments planned for the Southeast Side (with over 12 in the last 2 years).
Over the last year and half, the Coalition for a South Works CBA, has been holding Community Visioning Sessions to hear from residents on the southeast side, what a good neighbor policy for developers should be- what good development should look like in our communities. Residents have prioritized jobs and training, supporting local businesses/entrepreneurship, housing, environment, education, and quality of life, with an emphasis on a community voice, transparency, and accountability.
