On Tuesday, July 15th, over 100 neighbors from South Shore and South Chicago gathered to demand a Community Benefits Agreement for the Lakeside Development.
Coordinated by a coalition of organizations, a proposed CBA was presented to 7th Ward Alderman Natashia Holmes, who is supportive, as well as to McCaffery Interests, the developer.
The document details many hopes and expectations for the development, both benefits it should provide to the existing community and harms it must seek to mitigate. View a draft here. See more coverage in DNAinfo. The slide image below also has ideas if you’d like to voice your support for the CBA.
