McKinley Park Development Council Meeting

From Wednesday, June 19, 7:00 pm until 8:30 pm

Get involved with development in the McKinley Park neighborhood and attend the McKinley Park Development Council Meeting, 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 19, 2019, at Bethany Baptist Church, 3532 S. Hoyne Ave., Chicago.

Two special guest will speak about their community programs and services at the meeting. First, Victoria Gaspar wil speak about the Southwest Home Equity Assurance Program, a little-known initiative that provides loans to qualified homeowners for home improvements, the most popular of which is a five-year, no-interest loan for $10,000. During her presentation, Gaspar will share program details and how to qualify for the loan.

The second speaker is Jack Alley, co-founder of McKinley Park-based Ailey Solar, who will speak about the benefits — and feasibility — of home solar power. Now is the time to consider solar for your home, as 2019 is the last year of the 30 percent solar tax credit, which then begins to phase out over time.
