Metropolitan Planning Council
Chicago’s Pullman neighborhood provides a unique window into many of the issues the Metropolitan Planning Council has worked on for more than 80 years—affordable housing, investment in transit, historic preservation, economic development, public art, adaptive reuse, and race and income equity. Plus, there’s Chicago’s only National Monument and an award winning brew pub! Join MPC and our partners for a walking tour of the Pullman community to see its past, present and future through our eyes, and talk with local and regional experts in urban planning.
Tickets are $30. The registration fee supports MPC’s work, and gets you a craft beer at the end of the tour! Lunch will not be provided; please eat beforehand (click here for a roundup of local options). Bring comfortable walking shoes and water.
The event will take place rain or shine—but we hope there'll be tons of sunlight. Please dress appropriately for the weather. No refunds will be given due to inclement weather.
