Establish a clearinghouse of vacant and abandoned properties in the area along with the following information:

1) Legal status of the property (eg disputed foreclosure, absentee owner, etc)

2) Available resources in close proximity (to gauge or stimulate potential real estate development interest)

3) Habitability status (move-in ready or needs work?)

4) Zoning Status (especially for commercial properties to determine possible mixed use)

5) TIF and other special funding availability

The aim of the initiative would be to match available commercial and residential structures with individuals and households seeking affordable housing. The initiative would provide wrap-around social services for individuals and households moving into properties along with harnessing government, private and NGO resources for the sustainable rehabilitation of properties that needed repairs.

It just so happpens that I am working on just such an initiative, called Legally Occupy and I could use the support of the Cook County Board and others interested in promoting affordable housing in the area to help get the initiative up and running. 

I am especially seeking support that would allow me to devote full-time effort for the next 30 to 60 days to further build out the Hidden Value in Abandoned Buildings (HViAB) platform that I am developing with Dan Fehrenbach of CNT Energy.  A rudimentary version of the HViAB platform focused on the Bronzeville area of Chicago won a runner-up prize in the 2012 Urban Sustainability Hackathon sponored by the Center for Neighborhood Technology in October.

My name is Cindy Pettis, i have been an employee at Fantus Clinic Medical Records department for the past 21 years, this year has not been a good a year for me.  i'm leaving my message here because i don't know what else to do. Back in January of this year for whatever reason I was moved from Stroger Hospital budget to downtown's budget and my pay schedule was changed I adopted to that, and then for whatever reason they stopped taking the money out of my check for my life insurance and it has not been fixed as of this date.  And now I've been told that after working my two weeks I won't get my check this week because they have now fixed the problem with which budget I am on.  No one seems to care how this is affecting me, I have worked my hours and I deserve to get my check but payroll (Joyce Lewis) who has been no help at all is just saying you'll get paid next week for your two weeks. What happens to this week I am pretty sure that I will not get the money for this week because they will start from next week calculating my time, this is unfair and I need someone to listen to me, I worked and I deserve to get paid.
