#12thWardSuccesses Latinos Progresando is Awarded $250,000 from Neighborhood Opportunity Fund On March 6th, a total of 25 winners were selected from a pool of more than 800 applicants for their potential to create catalytic change along neighborhood commercial corridors. For years Alderman Cardenas urged the Department of Planning and Development to invest in neighborhood commercial corridors, like Cermak Road and 26th Street in Little Village. When a new initiative was announced that generates funds from downtown development projects to support commercial corridor growth in Chicago neighborhoods, he encouraged the business community in the 12th Ward to take advantage of the opportunity. Through persistence of their own, and help from Alderman Cardenas, Latinos Progresando received a $250,000 grant to restore the boarded-up former library building at 2724 W. Cermak to its original purpose of serving the community. Future use for the former library building will include high-quality, low-cost immigration legal services, cultural, educational and wellness services, mental health services and a space for community meetings and events.

  • Daniel - North Lawndale - 2006 MBA - DePaul - Informations Systems

    Apologies for resurrecting an old thread with a next n related issue. Does anyone know which commissioner or department someone should contact in order to get speed bumps placed in a high traffic alleyway . Also on the subject of issues in North Lawndale and Garfield Park are there any meetings or communicable formats in which we can all meet and discuss issues and resolutions to problems; Outside of my favorite every Block website

  • gpblight 22 Yr East Garfield Resident

    speedbumps are provided by CDOT. email rebekah.scheinfeld@cityofchicago.org, Tom.carney@cityofchicago.org

    There are some restrictions and requirements. I think a traffic study has to be done to justify.
