The Metropolitan Planning Council (MPC) has long emphasized the importance of supporting quality development near transit. As part of that support, MPC engages communities in shaping their local vision through our Corridor Development Initiative (CDI). 

This report details the results of that community engagement process and points the way toward securing equitable development in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood, the result of a series of virtual and in-person community meetings to plan the future of greenspace at Howard and Ashland, near the Howard CTA station. The meetings were a partnership of the Metropolitan Planning Council, the 49th Ward Alderwoman Maria Hadden, A Just Harvest, Family Matters, Gale Community Academy LSC, Good News Partners, Housing Opportunities for Women, Howard Area Community Center, James Sneider Apartments, Peterson Garden Project, Rogers Park Business Alliance, the Rogers Park Builders Group and ONE Northside.
