Mayor Lori Lightfoot wants to root out systemic racism from Chicago’s housing landscape by encouraging construction of affordable new homes, reshuffling funding priorities and disrupting eviction patterns, according to a sweeping policy report published Friday.
The mayor’s Office of Management and Budget is set to hold a hearing at 5 p.m. Monday to delve into the details of the “Blueprint for Fair Housing,” a 67-page report that details eight goals to “address the City’s housing segregation, disparities in access to opportunity, and history of inequitable investment,” according to a Friday news release.
