In the Fall of 2000, State Representative Larry McKeon, at the urging of local community groups and residents, commissioned Loyola University Chicago’s Center for Urban Research and Learning (CURL) to provide an analysis of relevant data regarding housing and land use in the Uptown community. A Local Advisory Council (LAC) was created to review, evaluate, and advise the project staff as they collected and analyzed data sets. For the past two years, researchers at CURL have worked with Organization of the NorthEast (ONE), Representative McKeon, and the LAC to collect and analyze data from a variety of sources. The goal of this report is to provide to all stakeholders and parties engaged in the Uptown community a comprehensive and accurate profile of Uptown and the changes that have been occurring within the community over the past decade, based on data collected from a wide range of reliable sources. The community, thus informed, will be better able to address the issues and concerns of all its residents.
