BELMONT CRAGIN | AVENUES FOR GROWTH PLAN
The Avenues for Growth Corridors Plan identifies strategies for creating jobs, supporting small and locally-owned businesses, improving housing options, and improving transportation and public places along the three corridors. The Plan explores the linkages between transportation improvements, housing options and economic development.
PUBLIC COMMENT IS OPEN
Ahead of our June 22, 2019 Community Summit, we invite you to read the plan and submit your feedback below. If you’re a resident, business owner, or part of a community organization, your input is vital to ensuring the plan reflects our community.
The Avenues for Growth plan is guided by residents’ input, and steered by JGMA Architects, Teska Associates, the Northwest Side Housing Center, and its subsidiary Northwest Side Community Development Corporation. The Plan is funded by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning’s Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program, which has undertaken more than 200 projects since 2012 to help the region’s communities plan for increased livability, sustainability and economic vitality.
