Welcome to Fall 2020 – Season 9

When we founded City Open in the Fall of 2016, we envisioned a space to combine policy and design, and to work with Chicago communities by providing visioning methodologies, tools and vocabulary to bring their projects to life. COVID-19 has had an unprecedented impact and footprint in our communities, and so many conversations about recovery strategies have taken place in 2020. What does recovery look like for our different communities and fields of practice? How might we adapt our planning processes to be both safe and engaging in the time of social distancing?

We are excited to be collaborating this season with the Metropolitan Planning Council (MPC) team and supporting the Corridor Development Initiative (CDI) in Rogers Park. MPC team has worked in multiple communities in the City using the CDI methodology: Woodlawn, Uptown, Logan Square, AuroraHyde ParkLogan Square and North Lawndale.

This season we'll be focused on supporting with the charrette preparation part of CDI, and designing a combination of in-person, virtual and DIY toolkit to engage the Rogers Park community in diverse design and mapping exercises.
