12/18/2020

Over the past few months, we've worked behind the scenes to bring One Fair Wage's High Road Kitchens program to Chicago. This grant program has helped hundreds of neighborhood restaurants in cities like New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles stay open during this pandemic.

Today - alongside our Council's Workforce Committee Chair Alderwoman Susan Sadlowski Garza, 10th Ward, Progressive Caucus Chair Sophia D. King, Latino Caucus Chair Alderman Roberto Maldonado, and Black Caucus Chair Alderman Jason C. Ervin - we announced the launch of High Road Kitchens Chicago (Watch the announcement here: https://t.co/nzZlXuTKPF)

High Road Kitchens Chicago will provide neighborhood restaurants with direct cash grants of $5K to $35K per restaurant. Participating restaurants must serve at least 500 free community meals, scale-up to One Fair Wage (full minimum wage with tips on top) within 5 years, and complete High Road's race and gender equity training program within 90 days of qualifying for the grant.

Chicago restaurants and restaurant workers are hurting right now. This program will help our neighborhood restaurants and restaurant workers survive while laying the groundwork for restaurant workers to eventually receive a full minimum wage with tips on top.

I'm proud to have a played a role in helping to bring this grant program to Chicago. I urge neighborhood restaurant owners to take advantage of this opportunity.

After Fliers For Avondale Apartments Spark Backlash, Developer Returns With Scaled-Back Proposal

Join us on January 7, 2021 for a Community-Driven Zoning and Development meeting for 2901 N. Milwaukee. Register for the virtual meeting at: www.aldermancarlosrosa.org/2901milwaukee.

The developer seeks a zoning change in order to rehab/redevelop the existing vacant building to allow for 3 additional dwelling units (for a total of 9 units) and 1,500 square feet of ground floor commercial space at the corner. One unit will be affordable under a Community Benefits Agreement.

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35th) said the new, condensed proposal is proof that "downzoning" the stretch will lead to more responsible development.

Unhoused Chicagoans gathered at the Chicago Family Assistance Center, 10 S. Kedzie, this morning to demand that the City and State take immediate action to house the unhoused!

I joined Alderman Byron Sigcho Lopez 25th Ward Office, and 33rd Ward Alderwoman Rossana Rodríguez to stand with the Chicago Union of the Homeless and accept their petition demanding the City provide immediate housing for the homeless. The petition has been signed by over 1,300 people and counting.

Housing is a human right, and it's time the State, County, and City provide homeless Chicagoans with housing and support.

Yesterday, the Zoning Committee passed six of our seven ordinances to rezone 14 parcels along Milwaukee Avenue in the 35th Ward. Passage of these ordinances is a victory for community leaders that diligently worked on this measure for years.

The rezoning of these 14 parcels aligns the Milwaukee Avenue corridor with our community’s land-use and zoning policy that seeks to spur economic development, curb demolition of existing buildings, and preserve the existing built environment and Main Street feel.
