MPC Testimony in Support of We Will Chicago

Download here

MPC urges Commissioners to adopt the We Will Chicago framework plan, which is the first citywide plan the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) has undertaken since the 1960s. For too long, Chicago has lacked a unifying vision of what we want this city to be, and the values we want to drive public decisions. We Will Chicago captures this vision through its guiding principles, themes, goals, and objectives.

MPC has been a partner, advisor, and participant in We Will Chicago on various aspects of the planning process. We co-developed the pre-planning workshops that helped shape the themes and structure of the planning process, participated on the Advisory and Public Health and Safety Research Teams, created a meeting in a box toolkit to strengthen public engagement, and facilitated working groups to provide recommendations on historical recokining and implementation. Read our full testiment of support for the We Will Chicago framework plan above.
