The City of Chicago’s Department of Planning and Development (DPD) is leading an effort to draft a land use plan that will build upon each community’s valuable assets, as well as past and current planning efforts, in order to complement and continue this work. Like DPD’s previous Land Use Strategy, the Pilsen – Little Village Land Use Plan will explore issues and opportunities for the key land uses found in both communities, including parks and open spaces, and housing, commercial, and industrial uses. It will establish goals, identify and prioritize opportunity areas, and outline strategies to achieve these goals.
From Drew Kann of Medill Reports: “In Pilsen questions remain over cleanup of Fisk site”
PERRO volunteers at this past weekend’s open house show the local activist group’s recently released recommendations for the use of the Fisk Generation Station site.
Outlined in blue is the land on the Fisk Generation Station site that is available for future redevelopment, according to the PERRO report.
There is no shortage of ideas among Pilsen residents about what to do with the site of the now-shuttered Fisk Generation Station located in the West Side Chicago neighborhood.
However, many in the area seem to share one concern: site remediation and cleanup.
