***Online RSVPs for this event are closed, but the event is open to the public, so please stop by - no RSVP necessary.***
The Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with 43rd Ward Alderman Michele Smith, Wrightwood Neighbors Association, and Lincoln Central Association, invite you to attend a community open house to give your feedback on the Lincoln Avenue corridor in Lincoln Park. Anyone who lives near, works around, or visits this area is encouraged to attend this open house.
This open house is the first of two public events that will help inform the Lincoln Avenue Corridor Plan. This plan, funded through the Lincoln Avenue Special Service Area (SSA #35-2015) and led by consultants The Lakota Group, Goodman Williams Group, and Sam Schwartz Engineering, will help to guide improvements to this historic corridor in the heart of Lincoln Park. Given the significant changes along Lincoln Avenue, from the redevelopment of the former Children’s Memorial Hospital and the ELEVATE Lincoln Park project, to the construction of the new DePaul Music School, now is a critical time to reassess this corridor and plan for its future.
Attendees will share their opinions about the conditions of many aspects of the corridor through conversations and interactive exhibits. Topics to be addressed include: sidewalk and public way conditions, transportation, business mix, and the state of the buildings in the area. Feedback will be incorporated into a report which will be released late this summer.
Do I have to arrive at the event promptly at 7:00pm?
No. This is not a typical "community meeting" where a presenter talks to the audience. This is a casual interactive workshop.
How long will the event last?
The open house will run from 7:00 - 9:00pm, but you may stay as long as you would like. This is an opportunity to share your thoughts on this corridor, and you may only need to stay 15 minutes to share your opinions.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
You can email Martin Sorge at email@example.com.
Am I required to register or RSVP to attend the event?
Reigtration is not necessary to attend, but we appreciate your RSVP to help us plan for attendance and to follow up after the open house.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
What if I want to share my opinion but am unable to attend the event?
We still want to hear from you! Please email Martin Sorge at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will launch a survey following this event, and will hosting a second open house later this year.
