[Chicago Tribune] Over the next 10 years, nearly all of the CHA's high-rise developments are slated for demolition and redevelopment, displacing more than 11,000 of the city's poorest families. CHA plans call for these families to receive Section 8 vouchers to make the transition to better housing.
