Update on Chicago's Central Area Action Plan

Back in 2003, the City of Chicago laid out an ambitious vision of how Chicago's downtown could grow in the next twenty years. But a lot of work remains. This year the city will release its Central Area Action Plan – a multi-billion dollar list of ways to improve downtown's quality of life. While the City Council will vote on the plan next week, its recommendations are advisory so it could be ignored. Benet Haller of Chicago's Department of Zoning and Planning, has been doing a series of public meetings about their proposals and he has an update.

Public Meeting:
public hearing on the Chicago Central Area Action Plan is being held between 6:30 and 8 tonight
Roosevelt University, S. Michigan Ave.

Music Button: Malibu, "Animal Lovin' Ken", from the CD Robo-Sapiens, (Expansion Team records)
