More on banks, the Conservatory, and quality-of-life plans in East Garfield Park

Earlier in our driving tour, Mike Tomas said there wasn’t a single bank to be found in East Garfield Park. Here, we return to that topic, and he explains what kinds of stop-gaps the Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance is trying to bring into the neighborhood.

Tomas, who heads the Conservatory Alliance’s New Communities Program, also talks here about the role the conservatory plays in East Garfield Park. We also discuss the Alliance’s quality-of-life plan (PDF), which was written and published in collaboration with LISC/Chicago.
