In 2008, Chicago Ald. Sharon Dixon (24th Ward), in partnership with MPC and Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), hosted the Lawndale Corridor Development Initiative (CDI), a series of three community meetings in Lawndale. The goal was to identify community interests and concerns about development in the neighborhood on Chicago’s Southwest Side, and work with architects and developers to create realistic concept plans for new development.

The data, discussions, interviews, and recommendations from all three meetings will are compiled into a final report.
