Glass Half Full

Do we have enough water? Is it clean? Will it endure? While Northeastern Illinois' water supply issues are significant, they are fixable. We invite you to join us in implementing this 10-point action agenda, to ensure our region’s glass remains full.

MPC Roundtable
Can Chicagoland Thrive in the Trump Era?

February 23, 2017, Noon to 1:30 p.m.

Metropolitan Planning Council
140 S. Dearborn, Suite 1400
Chicago, IL 60603

Join MPC and housing, transit and climate policy experts who will share their insights on what’s happening at the federal level and the impact it may—or may not—have on Illinois and Chicagoland.

We will explore how Trump’s campaign promises may translate to public policy and the likely impacts to initiatives like the Low Income Housing Tax Credit, Clean Power Plan and public/private partnerships in transportation and infrastructure planning.  We’ll look at best practices from the state and municipal level and discuss how to harness our regional power to continue moving our local agenda for housing, climate and transportation forward.
