Regional Housing Solutions web site helps to understand variation in local housing submarkets
The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), Metropolitan Mayors Caucus (MMC) and Metropolitan Planning Council (MPC) have partnered with DePaul University’s Institute for Housing Studies (IHS) to identify the geography and characteristics of eight distinct subregional housing markets across northeastern Illinois. This website contains the study’s findings, including detailed information about each of the eight submarkets, as well as recommended strategies for each area. The strategies were developed from the results of extensive outreach and discussions with a broad audience of policy makers, for-profit and not-for-profit housing developers, realtors, financial institutions, and municipal staff over the course of 2016. The project team is grateful to our project funders, Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust and Harris Family Foundation, for their generous support for this project.
