CURL's 2002 Uptown Housing and Land Use Study
This 30-page demographic and housing study was prepared by Loyola University's Center for Urban Research and Learning. It looks at changes in the 10 year period from 1990 to 2000. $100,000 in state funding was provided by State Representative Larry McKeon. Some controversy surrounded this work at its inception, due to wording of the originally-stated objectives and also to composition of the local advisory committee. Despite its rough beginning, the resulting report appears factual and objective.
