    And he stayed in the same house in Hyde Park all these years. That is something!
    Nobody wants to be forced out of their own homes due to higher taxes that often result from higher property values. On the other hand, without tax revenue, who is going to pay for the costly replacement of water main that potentially could be leaking lead and fixing pot-holed streets?
    I live on a street with two vacant crumbling houses and some houses clearly poorly maintained. Thankfully, that has helped to keep my property value/taxes low. Now if developers come in and fix these houses and, therefore, raise my property value/taxes, am I going to rant against gentrification? (Probably yes)
    Isn't progress supposed to eradicate decay and promote competitiveness? (I think so).

  • Businesses and residents weren't forced out of Hyde Park due to higher taxes or from higher property values. It was more a hostile takeover. We're talking two different issues. The City and U of C. Have you read the article in the Hyde Park Herald, May 18th? Competitive against who?...

    Businesses and residents weren't forced out of Hyde Park due to higher taxes or from higher property values. It was more a hostile takeover. We're talking two different issues. The City and U of C. Have you read the article in the Hyde Park Herald, May 18th? Competitive against who? You have restaurants in Hyde Park that just open and closing because of the over homogenized area. Does eradicate also mean getting rid of small business owners who have been in Hyde Park for 20 years? Even now the voices of the Hyde Park committee go unheard. That's a problem with our society, we tend to exclude and not include. Hyde Park was a community that once promoted a chamber of commerce. Who is profiting from the destabilization and regentrification of Hyde Park and other neighborhoods on the south lakefront region of Chicago?

    @Juan I do stay in touch with both Alderwomen and attend more than a fair share of CAPS meetings; however the police leadership hardly ever shows up, and I live right in their HQ's beat. They simply don't seem to care about the way of life of 35th St. I agree with you 100% about the Cook County court system being way too soft on crime. Repeat offenders are responsible for a significant amount of violence on the streets and most arrested have extended rap sheets. McCarthy certainly wasn't the best superintendent, but he was spot on about the soft sentencing of violent offenders at 26th & Cal adding to the mayhem in our communities. We need to mobilize our efforts--Black Lives Matter especially included--at getting tougher on violent and repeat offenders who are out to do nothing but cause fear and bloodshed. Parents of violent youth must be held accountable too.
