CPS Launches Website for School Repurposing and Community Development Proposal Submissions

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

Chicago Public Schools (CPS) launched a website that will allow members of the community to submit and review proposals for the repurposing of former school sites. The website, found at cps.edu/repurposingourbuildings, is an important first step in the implementation of the plan outlined by the Advisory Committee for School Repurposing and Community Development in its February 2014 report on property reuse recommendations.

CPS will be working with aldermen to facilitate the determination of community reuse preferences and to communicate the process for making proposals. The aldermanic community meetings will provide an additional forum for Chicago residents to contribute to repurposing efforts with the goal that each property is redeveloped in an appropriate manner for its surrounding community.

The School Repurposing and Community Development website is part of a multi-phase strategy recommended by the Advisory Committee to repurpose the sites of former schools in a transparent manner that best serves local communities.
