Guarding the Future

There could soon be a city mandate for guards at vacant properties within 1,000 yards of public schools. The proposed ordinance has the backing of the teachers' union and CPS, and would hand down fines to owners of threateningly derelict properties. Curbed agrees, safety is paramount. But man, if you thought not much else could be done to further distance our poor from our wealthy 'hoods, wait til the south and west sides start looking like internment camps.
