REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS CLOSED
GO TO 2040 is our seven-county region’s first comprehensive plan since the 1909 Plan of Chicago. The Board of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) unanimously adopted the plan in October 2010, after more than three years of research, deliberation and public input, including participation by tens of thousands of residents from across the region.
The challenge now is implementing the plan – and CMAP can’t do it alone.
“Implementing GO TO 2040: A Plan for Chicagoland’s Future,” co-sponsored by CMAP and the Metropolitan Planning Council, is a three-part roundtable series exploring how – in an ever-expanding world economy – comprehensive metropolitan plans are essential to keeping our communities competitive. At this roundtable, the final in the series, panelists will discuss:
- Implementation of the Youngstown 2010 Plan in Youngstown, Ohio, and how regional institutions can support local plans
- Important initiatives already underway in the region and how the GO TO 2040 plan will help to advance them, such as
- technical assistance to communities and interjurisdictional collaborations
- energy efficiency and green retrofits
- local entrepreneurship and community development
