Go Green on Racine Initiative featured on WTTW
‘The initiative aims to revitalize the entire intersection at 63rd Street and Racine Avenue – including a fresh produce market and a business incubator.
The groups are also working to take control of a nearby shuttered Chicago Public Schools building, which IMAN would operate as a housing and resource center for people returning from incarceration — work they’ve already been doing in the community for years.
And a central part of the project is the closed Green Line station at the intersection, which organizers say they’re advocating to get reopened.
“This is a starting point for the community, we’re trying to better this community, make it more comfortable more lovable, so this is just the starting point of something I think is going to be very big,” Hatten said.’
