CHA residents protest tennis village plan for Robert Taylor Homes site

July 29, 2013 (CHICAGO)

A group of residents delivered a letter Monday to CHA officials protesting the proposal to sell the land at 51st and State Street.

The CHA says the land will be used to develop a tennis complex that will house two properties, one of which will be mixed-income.

Protesters say of the 4,300 Robert Taylor units demolished, only 300 have been replaced.

In a statement, the CHA says the tennis village will encourage job growth and community building.
