Tennis, retail planned for Chicago public housing site

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Part of a site that once was home to Chicago's huge Robert Taylor public housing project may become the location of a tennis and retail complex.

The Chicago Housing Authority voted for a proposal that would allow the sale of some of the land to XS Tennis. The CHA intends to submit the plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

CHA CEO Charles Woodyard says Tuesday's vote does not allow the board to act immediately. He said more research will be done and feedback from the community sought before action is taken.

Lugenia Burns Hope Center executive director Roderick Wilson is a critic of the plan. He says a plan for public housing units should been in place before the CHA made plans for commercial development.
