WOODLAWN — Ald. Leslie Hairston (5th) will hold a meeting Tuesday evening to discuss the city’s proposed affordable housing ordinance for Woodlawn.
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at Hyde Park High School, 6220 S. Stony Island Ave. — just blocks away from the proposed Obama Presidential Center site.
“This ordinance was created to make sure that the current Woodlawn residents will be able to stay and share in the transformative opportunity that the Obama Presidential Center will bring,” Hairston said in a Facebook post.
The city’s proposal does not include many aspects of the CBA ordinance proposal, which has stalled in committee for months.
Hairston introduced the CBA ordinance to City Council with Ald. Jeanette Taylor (20th) in July.
