Blog Question

Would "South-Looping" Chatham be good for the future for long-time residents and newcomers, and would it rid Chatham of all of the vacant storefronts up and down 75Th and 79Th Streets between State Street and Cottage Grove Avenue and the many boarded-up vacant foreclosed houses and apartment buildings that dot the neighborhood, while erasing all of the damage low-income "riff-raft" of the younger generation have done to public and private property in Chatham?

South Looping would also rid the neighborhood of seniors and other struggling residents (such as those who have inherited building that need work; but are unable to finance it due to school, growing families, etc.)

Which community should we inflict these youth on? Or can we step up and take care of our neighbors. Is it NOTY true that "it takes a village to raise a child"?
