From Ald. Cappleman's latest newsletter:
"After a number of community meetings and stakeholder discussions over the past few years, the Chicago Parks Department last week provided their final plans for the rehab of the Clarendon Park Community Center. The rehabilitation of this historic building is possible due to the Clarendon Montrose TIF district project.
DETAILS OF THE REHAB.
- The $4.6M from the TIF district, along with the Park District's contribution, will pay for the first phase of construction which is estimated to be close to $6.4M. Click here to view the scope of the project for Phase 1.
- The 2nd phase will cost around $8.4M; click here to view the scope of the project for Phase 2.

The negotiations and community effort to get us to this point was long and extremely difficult, but when I see the smiles on the faces of our neighborhood kids playing in the newly rehabbed space, it will all be worth it."
