6/9/21 - APA-CMS Program: Who Will Lead the Future of Chicago? We Will! (CM | 1.5)

Updated: 5 days ago



The APA Chicago Metro Section invites you to join us for our June virtual session as we explore major planning initiatives that are transforming Chicago. The City of Chicago, under the leadership of Mayor Lori Lightfoot, is engaging in two innovative and comprehensive planning efforts that will change the landscape of development in Chicago for years to come. We Will Chicago is a 3-year comprehensive planning initiative that prioritizes equity, resiliency, and engagement to create a new, inclusive vision for the city. INVEST South/West is an unprecedented economic development strategy created to marshal $750 million towards development efforts on the south and west sides of Chicago. With the new Commissioner of the Department Planning and Development, Maurice Cox, at the helm, Chicago is addressing, head on, the social and economic inequities that impair Chicago’s legacy as a global city. Come learn how Chicago, by putting equity, resiliency, and inclusion at the forefront, is creating a roadmap for the revival of disinvested communities.
