Managing Chicago's Urban Dollar.
Feins, Judith D.
This booklet is based on a series of discussions and a colloquium held in response to Chicago's need to establish new priorities for society's capitalization and social service needs, which are increasingly in conflict; the public's decreasing confidence in the political, labor, and business leadership of the city; and the inadequate communication among the city's financial leaders, government, and special interest groups. The objectives of the discussions were to report on Chicago's fiscal and economic strengths and weaknesses; to increase public awareness and understanding of how the fiscal environment affects jobs, communities, and the quality of life, and to explore the mutual stake a variety of people and organizations have in Chicago's future. After presenting some background information on Chicago's fiscal situation, the booklet explores three policy issue areas: the South Loop New Town, the Economic Development Commission of the City of Chicago, and the allocation of Community Development Block Grant Funds.
