MTO/CUL co-hosted event:
Roderick Wilson, of the Lugenia Burns Hope Center, a grassroots nonprofit that works with CHA residents, isn’t happy with the new numbers. He said public housing residents were told their buildings would be demolished and replaced with one-third market rate units, one-third affordable housing units, and one-third public housing units. “That’s what they sold us,” he said. “ And they haven’t done that. Now they’re trying to renege [and] renegotiate that third of public housing and I don’t think that’s right.”,FROM:https://www.wbez.org/shows/wbez-news/cha-to-add-more-mixedincome-housing-in-bronzeville/4d155fb8-d856-4271-ac71-16282fb8d577 "
