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: The plans for Stony Island look to transportation investments, education improvements, citizen engagement, business support and a proposed multi-billion dollar development on the massive former South Works steel mill site to address disinvestment that has occurred since the steel mill closed in 1992.
