The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is moving forward with a plan to demolish East Chicago’s lead-contaminated West Calumet Housing Complex.
Residents had many questions and received few answers at a tense public meeting about the environmental review of the plan Monday night.
The city of East Chicago finished relocating more than 1,000 housing complex residents this spring. Officials plan to demolish the complex’s buildings later this year.
HUD must first sign off.
