Rethinking Urban Development

Tuesday, Oct 16, 2018 5:00 – 6:15 PM @ Edlis Neeson Theater at the Museum of Contemporary Art
What is the most socially conscious way to bring new development to a community on the brink of transition? This Conversation will take a closer look at the Obama Presidential Center coming to Jackson Park on the city’s South Side as an example of innovative urban redevelopment. We’ll bring together speakers from the community, city, and Obama Foundation itself to discuss the economic growth the Center is expected to catalyze in the Woodlawn, Washington Park, and South Shore neighborhoods, and how stakeholders are working to ensure that current residents and business owners benefit from these once-in-a-generation investments.
