Lincoln Park Community Conservation Council (Chicago, Ill.).

Hide Profile

Under the Urban Community Conservation Act of 1953 and the Federal Housing Act of 1954, Chicago established a five-person Community Conservation Board and local Conservation Community Councils. The local conservation councils were appointed by the mayor and made up of citizens from the areas slated for urban renewal. In July 1956, Chicago's Community Conservation Board approved the Lincoln Park Conservation Association's request to designate Lincoln Park a "conservation area." Such a designation was a necessary forerunner to obtaining federal urban renewal funds. The Lincoln Park Conservation Community Council (LPCCC), the official link between the citizens of Lincoln Park and municipal renewal agencies, was formed in 1962. One of the council's first official acts of business was to approve the Lincoln Park General Neighborhood Renewal Plan.
