Residents of Chicago's Bronzeville neighborhood deliver a plan to the mayor's office to provide them with more affordable housing. Members of the group Housing Bronzeville went to the mayor's fifth floor office at City Hall Tuesday morning.

They want 500 city owned vacant lots in their South Side neighborhood to be set aside for affordable housing for residents. They want to see the city act on their proposal before they will throw their support behind the Chicago 2016 Olympic bid.
