How LocalData and a former Chicago Mayor surveyed thousands of homes to help transform Gary, Indiana
The City of Gary, Indiana knows that good data is the key to defining its future. We’re proud to have helped a partnership with the University of Chicago engage citizens and collect data on thousands of homes.
After more than 20 years as Chicago’s Mayor, Richard Daley is working with the new Mayor of Gary, Ind., to try to revitalize that rust belt city. Daley is a senior fellow at the University of Chicago and his students are also helping in the transformation effort.
