CIC’s 2017 Neighborhood Forum


CIC’s second annual Neighborhood Forum brought together more than 200 building owners, developers, community groups, and policy leaders for a discussion about the challenges and opportunities of providing affordable housing in some of Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods. The program featured a rental market overview by Jim Kutill of Appraisal Research Counselors and a presentation by Jens Ludwig, whose work with the University of Chicago Crime Lab has focused on the recent surges in violence in certain Chicago neighborhoods. Ludwig’s research focuses on social policy, particularly in the areas of urban poverty, crime, and education. A moderated discussion explored how violence affects building owners and their residents on a daily basis and how owners cope with the challenging conditions.
