Save Grove Parc! sign now

We, the undersigned, support the goals of the Grove Parc Tenants Association to ensure the preservation of their communities during the imminent redevelopment of Grove Parc Plaza. Grove Parc Plaza is a 504 unit HUD subsidized housing complex neighboring the University of Chicago, created in response to a lack of affordable housing in Woodlawn as the University crept South in the 1960s. Home to 1,200 low-income residents, the complex has decayed over time due to chronic neglect on the part of the management company. Due to this chronic neglect, Grove Parc has repeatedly failed HUD housing inspections and the buildings are slated for redevelopment. The Grove Parc Tenants Association has drafted a vision for redevelopment which includes:

o preserving at least 300 subsidized units on the property for at least 20 yrs,
o transferring the subsidies of the remaining units to units within the neighborhood for at least 20 years,
o addressing crime by improving the provision of social services, and
o creating spaces where the owners and fellow tenants can hold each other accountable for harmful behavior.

In signing this petition, I show my support for the visions of the Grove Parc Tenants Association. I also urge Hank Webber, in his capacity as both a University employee and a member of the board of the Woodlawn Preservation and Investment Corporation (which currently owns Grove Parc Plaza) to endorse the vision of the Grove Parc Tenants Association, and to ensure that residents are included in future planning processes relating to the redevelopment of Grove Parc Plaza. Finally, I demand that tenants be given the right to consent to or veto any future plans put forth for the redevelopment of Grove Parc Plaza.
