I learn so much from readers and neighbors who are seeking ways to improve our community. Reader Derrick Everett advises that “there’s a talk taking place on Sunday [March 26] at the Ethical Humanist Society in Skokie. And while this is not 50th Ward-specific, I think it’s relevant because it’s about affordable housing and community design, which are two subjects that were hot topics at this evening’s meeting.”
Thanks for sharing, Derrick!
Sustaining Community: Affordable Housing and Community Design in Chicago
Sunday, March 26, 10:30 a.m. – Noon
“Jeff Bone, a principal at Landon Bone Baker Architects, will discuss the work of his firm which specializes in community-based, affordable, and environmentally responsible housing and design in Chicago and the region. For almost 30 years, the firm has successfully balanced context, technology, and economy in its work while bringing a strong sense of ownership to the residents of a wide variety of new and rehabbed affordable, subsidized, and supportive housing developments.
From large-scale urban design and planning initiatives to small non-profit projects integrated into existing neighborhoods, Chicago’s diverse housing needs require unique design solutions both big and small for people in communities across the city.”
