Video: New developments in East Garfield Park

On Tuesday — the last day of summer? — Joe and I rented a Zipcar and zipped over to the Garfield Park Conservatory, where we met Mike Tomas, the director of the East Garfield Park New Communities Program.

With Mike narrating, we spent about an hour driving the streets of East Garfield Park, looking at some of the new residential and commercial developments that are coming to the West Side neighborhood. One of the biggest problems that East Garfield Park residents face is that there isn’t a single bank in the neighborhood, Mike says, so he’s excited that a new CVS will be bringing ATM service to the area.
