We're creating a Business Area Specific Plan (BASP) with the Southtown Corridor Improvement Authority Board and the community. Southtown includes the Alger Heights, Boston Square, Franklin and Eastern, Madison Square, and Seymour Square business areas.
The BASP is a planning process. The goal is to establish strategies that improve the business areas. Together, we're planning for Southtown's future.
