Because of our opposition to development projects like Leucadia’s on the Southside, we are often asked, “What would you be agreeable to?” Our answer, “ green sustainable industries that: don’t negatively impact the community, can provide descent paying jobs, are attractive and enhance the neighborhood .” Followed by, “ where are you going to get something like that?" Last Tuesday, SETF set out to find out the answer.With a few members in tow, we boarded the trolley and headed to 45th and Racine to see the Platnium LEED Certified Testa Produce Facility. Down the Dan Ryan we went aboard Molly, South Chicago's Green Trolley, and with the view flaps rolled up, the ride was both noisy and thrilling. Huge trucks whizzed past us, so close that if we stuck our hands out – well you get the picture.
