Join CMAP for a panel discussion of one of the oldest and most contentious topics facing the Chicago region: the on-going expansion of our urbanized area. Between 2001-15, approximately 140,000 acres of the Chicago region’s agricultural and natural lands were developed, coinciding with a population shift away from the region’s core. Land conversion provides housing, jobs, and economic activity, but can impact environmental quality, rural character, and disinvestment in older communities. Meanwhile, the cost of providing services and infrastructure continues to rise. Can we afford to continue to urbanize? Will we continue to urbanize?
APA-IL CMS is a co-sponsor for this event.
