Charting Community Assets

LCDC Mapping Community Investment
Spring 1999

Lawndale Christian Development Corporation (LCDC) has been developing housing and social services in North Lawndale for several decades. LCDC’s partnership with Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago has allowed it to lend money to North Lawndale residents and provide technical assistance in contractor selection, cost estimating, and construction monitoring.

In the Spring of 1999, LCDC approached the City Design Center for assistance in mapping LCDC developments and major institutions in the North Lawndale community area. The City Design Center produced two maps, one locating all of the LCDC housing developments and LCDC Neighborhood Housing Services residential loans; the second, locating the major institutions and block clubs in North Lawndale. The maps were slated for use in presentations to local foundations, government officials, and community members.
