CMAP fields feedback on future of Pilsen and Little Village

Chicago’s Pilsen and Little Village neighborhoods may be predominantly Mexican and share a border, but they each have different needs, challenges, assets and opportunities. With that in mind, the city of Chicago has embarked on a project called A Plan for Pilsen and Little Village. Part of the plan's goal according to the Department of Planning and Development is “to build upon each community's valuable assets, as well as past and current planning efforts, in order to complement and continue this work.” The project is in the early stages with community meetings taking place. There’s one Thursday night in Little Village. We check in with Adrian Esquivel, Community Development Director for the Little Village nonprofit Enlace for his take on what needs to change and stay the same in Little Village. (Flickr/yooperann)
