U.S. Steel: Here We Go Again

Plans to develop the U.S. Steel site is on hold. The European conglomerate, Barcelona Housing System, put a skid on the project by voicing some concerns about soil contamination. This sound disingenuous considering that the EPA ( Environmental Protection Agency ) oversaw a massive remediation of the site when the McCaffery Group was suppose to develop the land. EPA deemed the site ready to go. Whether or not Barcelona is trying to use this as a ploy to reduce the cost of the land or to back out the deal all together is anyone's guess. The closing is postpone into sometime in May of 2018. Stay tuned...dats, dats, dats all folks.

To find out more, we talk with journalist Bob Herbert, who wrote and produced the documentary “Against All Odds: The Fight for a Black Middle Class.” He brings decades of reporting and analysis together to explain what African-American families have confronted in pursuing the American Dream.

    Good Bye to The Planning Coalition
    From the beginning of my tenure at The Planning Coalition, there has been a strong and mutually sustaining relationship between the block clubs and the Coalition. The work of each of these groups was informed by each other's success and - yes, let's own it - the occasional failures.
