For more than 85 years, MPC has worked to create prosperous, equitable and sustainable communities throughout northeastern Illinois and the Chicago region. The solutions we’ve implemented have resulted in vibrant neighborhoods, quality housing and transportation, a strong economy, well-managed natural assets, and efficient delivery of government services. This has meant advancing policy change at multiple levels of government—the State of Illinois, City of Chicago and many others. In 2019, the unprecedented level of transition in Springfield and Chicago presents an opportunity for our state, region and city to create a new type of growth that brings more shared prosperity, equity, and sustainability for everyone who lives and works here.
MPC has cataloged the challenges and opportunities facing the various levels of governance within our state and developed specific policy recommendations that would provide a way forward for us all.
