DNAInfo.com: “Anti-Gentrification Plan Would Bring More Affordable Housing To Hot ‘Hoods”

This story details an anti-gentrification plan Mayor Emanuel rolled out in Summer 2017 that would impose penalties on developers for failing to set aside affordable units in residential properties, and a pilot program to create 1,000 affordable units in areas experiencing gentrification. In the article, James Rudyk said, while the program is a "step in the right direction, it's not a solution to the city's affordable housing crisis. This step is only as successful as the developers who will comply with the ordinance instead of taking the buyout.”
