Visions of the Future

CMAP (Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning) has been working on a 2040 Regional Plan for Chicago.  Along with meetings and workshops throughout the region to engage the public, CMAP held a Community Design Workshop at UIC.
 
Recently, CMAP published renderings based on the workshop.  Take a look at the renderings:

As part of the public outreach for the comprehensive plan, there is an opportunity to provide comments on what you see on their website.  The Comments section is at the bottom of the main CDW page:

Angela Larsen, a member of our Office, played a big role in bringing together everyone who participated in the workshop.  Thanks Angela!

One more thing...there will be many opportunities for you to have more of a say in how the 7-county region develops by 2040, through workshops held throughout the region this summer using scenario-building software and keypad polling for voting.  Please register for a workshop near you:
