The Future of Great Places 2020

As of Jan. 1, Great Places 2020 will have three years to implement the Strategic Plans for Maple Crossing, Englewood Village and River West.  In the next three months, the Great Places Steering Committee will lead an outreach effort with potential funders and partners to develop key strategies and an implementation action plan to attract the funding and partnerships needed to tackle a few key shared obstacles to making the plans a reality. This could include infrastructure investment, public safety, improved educational access, workforce apartment construction, commercial business attraction and development and home ownership development. These strategies will be integrated into a three-year work plan for the Great Places Steering and Livability, Opportunity, Vitality and Education committees to drive implementation.
