Lincoln Park Lakeview District Plans Synthesis

Chicago has many citywide and local place-based plans with stated goals for the built environment. Some are municipal; others are nonprofit driven. They prioritize public and private capital investments, provide important context for those investments and help determine how a community should grow and where development should occur.

Planning Context: Lincoln Park Lakeview includes some of the most densely populated and walkable neighborhoods in all of Chicago. Plans for this area focus on improving transit and accessibility, enhancing the pedestrian experience and continuing to build on the retail and commercial strength of its business districts. Significant progress has been made on many of the improvements to the built environment recommended in this area’s plans. [Excerpted from Summary of Lincoln Park Lakeview District Plans]
