Tribune launches new plan for Chicago

More than 100 years after Daniel Burnham’s Plan for Chicago-when he stated “Make no small plans”- the Chicago Tribune editorial board is asking readers to submit their own proposals for how Chicago can conquer today’s challenges and shortcomings. School closings, violent crime and joblessness are just a few of the barriers preventing the city from living up to greatness. How can we fix this? Is Chicago at a critical juncture? Editorial board member Kristen McQueary explains why she and her colleagues are calling this period the city’s fourth great crisis. (Photo: Flickr/KWDesigns)
