Posted on: June 14th, 2017

A new city program aims to turn city-owned tax foreclosed homes into artistic community hubs. The program, originally introduced as a 2017 budget amendment by alderwoman Milele A. Coggs and Russell W. Stamper, II, got a thumbs up from all of the members of the city’s Zoning, Neighborhoods & Development Committee Tuesday morning. The first home scheduled for conversion from city liability to neighborhood asset is one in the Bronzeville neighborhood.
