Go Green on Racine Presses On – Chicago Prize Update

Posted: August 6, 2020 in Uncategorized

Over the last year, our association, along with our extraordinary community partners Inner City Muslim Action Network (IMAN), Teamwork Englewood, and E.G. Woode, have worked tirelessly to develop perhaps the most detailed, ambitious and thoroughly vetted plans in our history to facilitate a stunning new grassroots-led transformation of a critical intersection and its surrounding blocks in the heart of Englewood.

This initiative is known as ‘Go Green On Racine’ and it includes three major catalytic developments and accompanying housing and transportation strategies that envision leading to the opening of a closed Green Line train stop on Racine Avenue.

Earlier today, PTF notified the public of the winner of its first inaugural Chicago Prize award and we want to take this moment to offer our sincerest congratulations to the Auburn Gresham team for being selected for this prestigious recognition of a dynamic vision for Chicago’s South Side. 

The Pritzker Traubert Foundation also announced that it would match contributions from other funders interested in supporting the other five Chicago Prize finalists’ projects, up to $2.5 million in total, which is still a phenomenal opportunity for the Go Green on Racine Project.

Later this month we will be gathering outdoors with Englewood’s 16th Ward Alderman Stephanie Coleman, Congressman Jesus ‘Chuy’ Garcia, and major community partners to celebrate all that we have accomplished together. We will provide updates, celebrate and reaffirm that we are truly Englewood Rising Together! Visit the Go Green On Racine website to learn more about our plans for this important initiative or feel free to contact us directly at 866-845-1032! We appreciate all the encouraging words, prayers and faith in this project….Go Green on Racine Presses On! Let’s Go Englewood!
