The City hopes to leverage $2.9B in public and private funds to direct to seven "opportunity areas" in blighted or transitional neighborhoods. All but $300M of this money would have private sourcing, and big picture targets are employment and entertainment anchors, housing, and streetscape and transportation initiatives. Sounds like this thing is intertwined with the Cultural Plan and $7B Infrastructure Trust. The areas in play: Bronzeville, Englewood, Little Village, Uptown, Pullman, Rogers Park, and the Eisenhower Corridor (Near West Side). There are some really fine ideas contained within.
