Logan Square Racial Equity Impact Assessment

In 2018, LUCHA partnered with the Logan Square Neighborhood Association (LSNA) and Chicago United for Equity (CUE) to conduct a Racial Equity Impact Assessment (REIA) of the Chicago Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) proposed Complete Streets project for North Milwaukee Avenue from Logan Square to Belmont. An REIA is a nationally-tested, community-driven process that identifies which groups are most likely to benefit from and which will be burdened by a particular project, then proposes strategies for ensuring equitable outcomes. To advance the project with a racial equity lens, proposed recommendations include the creation and preservation of affordable, family-sized housing, such as that proposed on the Emmett Street lot.
