It has been over 50 years since North Lawndale has had a comprehensive plan that could be used to attract resources and guide public policy as it relates to transportation, utilities, land use, recreation, and housing. As a result, much of the limited development that has occurred in recent years has not been coordinated or yielded maximum impact for the community as a whole. There are some pockets of North Lawndale that have seen significant development, while other parts have remained untouched since the 1950’s. In an effort to rectify this situation, the North Lawndale Community Coordinating Council (NLCCC) recently held its first annual community planning conference, in partnership with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), at the DRW College Prep High School on Chicago’s West Side. Join us as we recap the conference and share next steps for the community planning process. Guests will be Alderman Michael Scott, Jr., Rodney Brown and Dennis Deer. Alderman Michael Scott, Jr. represents the 24th Ward on Chicago's West Side. Rodney Brown and Dennis Deer, along with Host Valerie F. Leonard, are members of the Executive Sub-Committee of NLCCC.
