Description

Executive Summary:

What's up in the North End? Since 1975 the City of Champaign has spent $10
million dollars and the City of Urbana has spent $1.5 million dollars from the
federal Community Development Block Grant Program in the area informally
know as the North End. Still the area is plagued with poor housing and poor
neighborhood conditions. In addition, the bulk of low-income family public
housing projects in the area have not undergone a major renovation since
many of them were built in 1952. The Champaign County Housing Authority
has jurisdiction over their maintenance and up keep, separate from the
programs of both cities. Obviously, money alone will not solve the areas
problems. A clear consensus or profile of what the areas problems are is
needed.
