Chicago wants to sell you some vacant land

We normally see only a few items each week in the RSS feeds we monitor from the City of Chicago’s various departments.

Perhaps it’s merely coincidental, but on mayoral inauguration we found 50 items to review. We’ve linked a number of them at our News page, where we summarize the latest from the 100s of local, regional and national sources we monitor to make it fast and easy for you to stay up-to-date.

Three items of particular interest are the City Lots for City Living and HomeStart programs, and the Historic Bungalows Initiative.

City Lots for City Living involves the sale of city-owned vacant land to developers of either affordable or market rate housing. The HomeStart program makes city-owned lots available to developers of projects that combine market rate and affordable housing. The Historic Bungalows Initiative provides grants, vouchers and other benefits to qualifying bungalow owners.

The Chicago Recycles video, above, was also in today’s feeds from the City.
