Dangerous Fairview Projects Almost A Ghost Town

JOLIET, IL - The notoriously dangerous Fairview Public Housing projects, a community trouble zone for decades, is in its final days. Only about 40 families remain at Fairview as of this week. That means the other 120 public housing apartment units on The Hill are vacant, and they will never, ever, be occupied again.

Joliet Housing Authority Executive Director Michael Simelton told Joliet Patch on Wednesday that his agency's contract calls for the complete demolition of the Fairview Public Housing units starting around May 1. The razing should take 30 to 45 days, Simelton told Patch.
