This complex is built like a fortress. The buildings are fully constructed of brick. The shells will last and the insides just need to be overhauled. Would we way cheaper just to upgrade.

The majority of the people living there are free loaders that have been living there for generations. The residents themselves say that there are constant fights, shootings and all night partying. Great. So now you're going to disburse these degenerates to live amongst the hard working,honest homeowners. I'm sure the slum-section-8-lords are going to have a field day and the honest citizens of North Chicago, Waukegan, Beach Park and Zion will have to put up with these WIC/LINK dregs of society. If you think the crime rate is high in NC now, just wait - instead of the crime being contained to one area, it will now branch out into all wards. And or course NC is not getting anymore policemen, so good folk will just have to grin and bear it.

Mayor Rockingham is living in a fantasy world and he only looks to make changes/improvements when it's "highly visible". You think NC has a problem now with its ratio of 60/40 rentals/ownership? Just wait until the rest of the homeowners start selling and moving out. If NC is ever going to regain some semblance of a thriving city, the mayor needs to invest in the population that pays property taxes and not in the population that thrives on hand-outs.
