Event Details

Do you have an idea for tactical placemaking in your neighborhood?

Come pitch your idea at Haymarket Pub on July 31!

Placemaking projects don’t need to be expensive, lengthy, or difficult to deploy. Low cost and creative ideas can be a quick and easy way to reinvigorate your street, sidewalk, or public plaza. CNU Illinois invites you to pitch your idea to help make it happen with a chance to win an implementation grant for up to $1,000! A diverse panel of urbanist gurus with tactical intervention (TI) experience will judge pitches and award prizes to the top ideas.

Community groups, neighborhood organizations, and passionate residents are all invited to enter. To enter the Tactical Urbanism Shark Tank event, please email the following items in a single-page PDF document to

  • a short description of your idea (100 words max),
  • your plan to implement it (100 words max),
  • any other groups or partners to help you, and
  • a rough budget to make it happen.


At the event, you’ll be asked to make a 2 minute pitch to our panel, which includes:

  • Kareeshma Ali, Design Researcher, Greater Good Studio
  • Luis Gutierrez, Executive Director Latinos Progresando
  • Luis Monterrubio, Architect and Urban Planner



Don’t have an idea to pitch? Don’t worry! We hope you will come for a drink, a bite to eat and watch the show. You’ll meet passionate urbanists from across the Chicago region and leave with several fantastic ideas for tactical urbanism in your own community.

CNU Illinois

CNU Illinois advocates the restructuring of public policy and development practices to support the restoration of existing urban centers and towns within coherent metropolitan regions. We stand for the reconfiguration of sprawling suburbs into communities of real neighborhoods and diverse districts, the conservation of natural environments, and the preservation of our built legacy.

Rebuilding neighborhoods, cities, and regions is profoundly interdisciplinary. We believe that community, economics, environment, health and design need to be addressed simultaneously through urban design and planning.
