#109 Tracking the Built Environment with Building Permits

Using Chicago’s Building Permits data for fun and profit!

Tina Fassett from the DePaul Institute for Housing Studies will discuss her analysis of demolitions in Chicago from 2004 to 2012.


Steven Vance will talk about Licensed Chicago Contractors, his project to track and notify people about new construction updates in Chicago.

Hack Night: Democratic Edition!

We will also have our first open leadership discussion after the presentations for anyone who is interested in being involved in running the hack night, taking on new projects, or doing training sessions.
