I am interested in exploring the creation of communities similar to Pilsen and Andersonville and pursue the tourism dollars.
I would like to see long-range planning within the ward that addresses the needs of the entire ward and not focused in specific, more affluent corridors (i.e., 53rd Street between Lake Park and Woodlawn). To that end, I believe the Mariano’s – Bronzeville is a significant step forward within the Ward. Being the most proximate ward to downtown with the most significant development opportunities, a thoughtful, well-distributed plan of development should be determined and executed throughout the Ward.
We have had good development in the 4th ward, however we must remain affordable and livable for the long time residents. I want to ensure that we keep the ward livable with jobs and income for the foreseeable future.
