The Columbia Chronicle: “Emanuel’s anti-gentrification plan may not be enough to stop displacement”

This article covers The City of Chicago’s new affordability requirements for residential development projects in gentrified areas, raising the Affordability Requirement from 10 percent of units to 20 percent. James Rudyk, said the 20 percent requirement is a “step in the right direction,” but it will only generate a hypothetical 24 units in a 120-unit development—which is insufficient, especially for the growing number of people who cannot afford the area and do not have a home or place to rent."
