From Chicago Sun-Times:

Chicago Public Schools is collecting ideas and proposals for more than 40 of the school buildings that were shut down in last year’s massive school closing. Members of the public and community groups can submit proposals for the old school sites on the website, which has a full list of available school sites. According to CPS, the website also includes financial and physical information about each property. CPS CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett said that the website will help school officials involve the community and make the process transparent: “Each neighborhood has their own vision for these buildings, and we look forward to hearing their proposals of how we can find a new use that boosts economic activity and cultural vibrancy for the community.”
