Development near transit helped double Chicago's downtown population between 2000 and 2010—even as the city as a whole lost population. Creating new opportunities across the region for people of all incomes to live, work and shop near transit is an effective regional growth strategy: Not only is transit-oriented development attracting new residents and businesses, but it’s also reducing household costs and improving employment opportunities and quality of life by giving people excellent access to high-quality jobs, schools, retail and parks.
MPC's Grow Chicago initiative is advocating for regulatory changes, new financing options and public support for equitable development near transit.
New development near transit will improve opportunities for all Chicagoans.
