REVITALIZATION IN THE NEWS: West Garfield/Chatham Pop!

“The activation of underutilized West and South side properties is a key strategy to revitalize neighborhood commercial corridors with active, people-oriented activities,” Commissioner Cox said.

The City of Chicago announced on Thursday, the creation of two new public plazas located in West Garfield Park and Chatham. These projects are a part of the Department of Planning and Development's POP program, using vacant lots and spaces to provide public ways for residents in communities. The funding for these projects come from the Chicago Recovery Plan.

These spaces will provide vibrant spaces for business owners and the general public to interact, aiding in the revitalization of corridors that have been the hardest hit from the Covid-19 pandemic. Learn more about these developments by clicking on the link below.
