Chicago's grand public housing project struggles

An investigation by Jason Grotto, Laurie Cohen and Sara Olkon of the Chicago Tribune reveals the realities of a 10-year plan to rehabilitate Chicago's public housing. The investigation found "that almost nine years into what was billed as a 10-year program, the city has completed only 30 percent of the plan's most ambitious element — tearing down entire housing projects and replacing them with new neighborhoods where poor, working-class and wealthier families would live side by side." Thousands of families remained displaced, and some believe it may take another decade before hundreds of additional units are completed.
