Our Great Rivers is a vision for creating a more inviting, productive, and living river system in the city of Chicago, released in 2016 by the City of Chicago, the Metropolitan Planning Council (MPC), Friends of the Chicago River, and many other partners. More than 6,000 residents provided input to help develop this collective vision. Our Great Rivers defines 26 goals with accompanying action steps for stakeholders to work on collaboratively to improve the Des Plaines, Chicago, and Calumet rivers. Great Rivers Chicago is an initiative to ensure that the Our Great Rivers vision is advanced and stories of progress, change, and challenges are being documented and highlighted.
