Listen in as Julie Burros, director of cultural planning at the City of Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, explains how the city is creating a new Cultural Plan with input from Chicago’s citizens and how you can be involved in the process. The city’s last cultural plan was developed under Mayor Harold Washington in 1986, and resulted in the creation of the Chicago Cultural Center, the redevelopment of Navy Pier, and the building of the Downtown Theater District.
