A New Vision for Altgeld Gardens

In 2021, our community came together to stop the demolition of the Historic C Building in Altgeld Gardens. This initial win was a huge achievement, but we’re not stopping there. PCR is now leading community visioning efforts to engage and inspire residents around what we want to see in our neighborhood - things like a grocery store, clean energy job training, youth programming, outdoor recreation and more. Through these organizing efforts as well as connecting with public and private sector stakeholders, we’re making progress toward gaining community oversight of the historic C building and attracting resources for revitalization of the building and other abandoned commercial spaces in our neighborhood.
