This year BT has kicked in high gear around local campaigns that will support community controlled development. If you live in the West Humboldt Park community please join us in the upcoming meetings and learning sessions around proposed community projects and have your say and hard work contribute to the economic and community development of the WHP community:
Thursday, April 24th at 12 pm meet BT members at the Industrial Council of Nearwest Chicago to see the organization’s small business incubator. This site visit was inspired by the community meetings around the re-purposing of the vacant Laura Ward Elementary School. As a community we are working to explore potential options for the reuse in order to ensure direct community benefit of the building.
Tuesday, April 29th at 5:30pm at the Daley Library, 733 N. Kedzie will be our next Tax Increment Financing strategy meeting around using participatory budgeting with TIF funds!
Saturday, May 3rd is a learning session on Community Benefit Agreements being held at the Daley Library, 733 N. Kedzie from 10-1pm.
The next community meeting on the Re-Purposing of the vacant Laura Ward Tuesday, May 6th 5:30-7:30pm at the Daley Library, 733 N. Kedzie.
