When most people think of the engine behind Chicago's economy, they think of the Loop; but much of the city's commerce takes place more quietly, behind store fronts and factory doors in Chicago's neighborhoods. And no group has done more to nurture and grow the industrial base of the city's side streets than CANDO. As it marks two decades, this alliance of community economic development groups deserves the collective praise of a city that has benefited from its consistent advocacy of neighborhood-based development.

- Editorial, Crain's Chicago Business, 28 June 1999.
