Chicago Department of Planning and Development

Development

6:00 p.m.
Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2019

As the principal planning agency for the City of Chicago, the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) promotes the comprehensive growth and sustainability of the City and its neighborhoods. The department also oversees the City’s zoning and land use policies and, through its economic development and housing bureaus, employs a variety of resources to encourage business and real estate development, as well as a diverse and stable housing stock throughout the City.

Since March, the City, Regional Transportation Authority, and the 7th Ward have been working with the community to envision a vibrant, thriving future for East 75th and East 79th Streets, between Stony Island Avenue and Lake Michigan. At this second public meeting, you will have the opportunity to:

  • View demographic, economic and other data that tells the story of the South Shore community
  • Hear a summary of community input from the first workshop
  • Provide input on initial ideas for action the City and its community partners can take to move these corridors forward

Ultimately, the South Shore Corridor Study will inform a blueprint for the East 75th and East 79th Street corridors. You can view project details, materials and upcoming public events online at: http://bit.ly/SouthShoreStudy

A brief presentation will be given at around 6:10 p.m., followed by an interactive exercise and opportunity for Q&A.

Background:
In 2018, the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) and the Office of Ald. Gregory Mitchell (7th) worked to secure a grant through the Regional Transportation Authority’s Community Planning program to develop a plan for two corridors in the South Shore neighborhood: East 75th and East 79th Streets, from Stony Island Avenue to Lake Michigan.

In close consultation with Ald. Mitchell, DPD will develop a blueprint for both corridors by focusing on land use, housing, retail and connectivity to transit, within the context of changing demographics. Preliminary work began in January 2019, and will include robust community engagement efforts with assistance from the South Shore Chamber of Commerce. DPD staff expects to complete the study in early 2020.

The City's desired outcomes from the study include:

  • Recommendations aimed at strengthening transit usage and making it safer and more efficient for neighborhood residents, especially seniors, to access transit
  • Identification of challenges within the local housing market and recommendations on stabilizing and strengthening it, including how transit improvements can support this
  • Recommendations for transit improvements that can support existing business along the corridor, strengthen the overall retail environment, and help to retain and attract new retail
