As reflected in the Draft Plan, the initial set list of projects that we started with back in April of 2016 have matured over the past 8 months. These projects reflect the refinements received via WPB focus groups and stakeholder interviews, meetings with the community, Chamber, Special Service Area (SSA) Board, and the Advisory Committee, as well as online engagement via the website – from idea sharing and quick polls to photo voting on varying ideals for the Cortland‐Ashland Underpass.

Feedback from the public, paired with that of the Advisory Committee, which includes representatives from the community (Wicker Park, Bucktown, Aldermen, Presence Health, local business owners, and SSA Board Members) as well as the City at large (CDOT, CPD, DPZ) have provided local insights, grand visions, and expert reality checks.The Draft Master Plan Update is a direct reflection of these three very important elements being merged.
