Message from Lathrop Community Partners

We received the following on October 11 from Lathrop Community Partners, the developers for the redevelopment of the Lathrop site:

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Thank you for joining us at the presentation of the revised draft Master Plan for the revitalization of Lathrop Homes. We enjoyed talking with each and every one of you and appreciate the great ideas you provided. The slideshow presentation and the draft Master Plan are now on our website, Please take a look when you have a moment.

More than 240 people attended the July 30th meeting to provide essential input on the draft Master Plan. In addition to the helpful comments and questions provided during the presentation, we received 110 surveys and comment cards with additional recommendations. This information will be considered as we refine the final pieces of the Master Plan.

We are now entering the planned development phase, during which we will meet with various city departments to finalize the Master Plan. Much like the previous phase, public input in the planned development phase will also be critical to ensure project success. Lathrop Community Partners and the Chicago Housing Authority will convene another meeting this winter to begin implementation of the Master Plan.

On behalf of the entire Lathrop Community Partners team and the Chicago Housing Authority, thank you for your interest in this project and your thoughtful comments at our July meeting. We look forward to talking with you soon.

In partnership,

Jacques Sandberg
