  • One of the ways we’ve been encouraging that is through a process called CDI…
  • One of the ways we are encouraging development around transit is through a process called the CDI…

    Goals are:
    To understand the issues facing the community;
    To recognize the various values and interests of people in the neighborhood; and
    To develop a set of potential plans for significant sites in the area, with the aim of informing future development there.
  • Not a one-meeting thing – a process, come to all 3
    We’ve all been to that community meeting…This is a process of inquiry, and we don’t know the outcome.
  • Info sheets on table on Zoning, TIF, affordable housing, historic preservation
  • CPS is required to sell the property to the highest “responsible” bidder, CPS has indicated that if a community determines their preferences for re-use, those preferences will be included in the bid solicitation. In effect, developers bidding on the property will need to incorporate these preferences in order to be considered.
    As with any of the vacant school buildings, an immediate re-use for another govt. purpose would negate this bid solicitation process. Could be another school, a library, a municipal staff use of some sort…

    Future uses may include a new school, but potentially something else, such as housing, community space, offices, retail, or any number of things.
    Both ONE Northside and Uptown United have obtained input from their stakeholders. Copies of their work are here.
