Turkey Day is fast approaching, and the holiday season is an ideal time to reflect on the year’s progress and accomplishments. At the Metropolitan Planning Council, we are grateful for a cornucopia of 2012 policy and planning achievements, how this progress is improving our lives, and how each forward step contributes to a sustainable and prosperous Chicago region. We know what we are thankful for: public transit investments and improved bike routes to make our commutes better, new parks that make it fun to be outdoors (even in unexpected places, like parking spots!), abundant freshwater resources, and so much more.
What are you thankful for this year? Let us know how smart policies and sound planning have affected your life in 2012! Submit your answers in a brief video! Just use your trusty smartphone or tablet, and remember to tell us your name, where the project is located, and provide some context. Please upload your entries to YouTube and share the link with us via Facebook, Twitter or by email.
The first 10 submissions will receive some awesome MPC swag: a steel water bottle and fun tote bag. Five additional winners will be chosen from the entries received by Nov. 30.
