    Ravenswood Senior Housing Development Pits People vs. Parking
    RAVENSWOOD - During a community meeting to discuss a proposed affordable senior housing development in the footprint of the old Ravenswood Hospital, neighbors questioned the priorities of Ald. Ameya Pawar (47th) after the councilman bluntly stated, "I'm supporting this unilaterally." "I take offense at that, that this is a done deal," said Jean Metzler.

    There is significantly less traffic and parking pressure without the hospital and 24 hour ambulances. While convenient medical offices were also lost with the hospital closing, Lycee and affordable senior housing are the perfect combination for neighborhood life and new synergy.

    Many other seniors, with slightly higher incomes than applicable for this housing, are leaving the state, their relatives, friends, neighbors, support network, physicians and all they know because housing isn't available for them. Builders could have incorporated ECO and universal design into every home or multi-unit project built as is done in Australia and Canada. Universal design provides wider doorways and other features that make housing better for families with infants and young children, a teen who broke his leg skate boarding, you, mending from an auto accident, a friend in a wheelchair, someone home after surgery, someone who gradually or suddenly develops a vision or mobility need.

    Chicago is concerned about its loss of population, but poor planning and skyrocketing property taxes continue to force people out, especially our seniors. If we think about - does this work for the parents with new twins? Does it also work for their great grandparents, living at home in their 90's? Let's support good planning.

    Great ideas, southport. Unfortunately, developers here are too focused on "resale potential" than they are on long term adaptability.
