The Illinois Coastal Zone (ICZ) Planning is a community planning process to enhance awareness and stewardship of Uptown's inner coastal zone and its unique assets. The goal of the planning process is to create an actionable community plan that will set achievable short- and long-term collective goals for Uptown's inner coastal community, including residents, park users, those who work in the area, and those that transit to the coastal area to access the lakefront and Lake Shore Drive.

The plan will be created through 4 community meetings, starting on 9.8.16 and ending on 10.20.16. We ask that participants come to as many of the meetings as they can. Meetings will include the following components:

• Developing a collective understanding of the history of the Uptown ICZ  from many diverse viewpoints
• Creating a shared vision for Clarendon Park and contiguous park areas within the ICZ
• Identifying issues and concerns that currently exist that might impede the vision
• Generating  strategies to mitigate issues and concerns
• Creating an actionable plan that moves toward the shared vision and accounts for roadblocks
• Celebrating, documenting, and distributing the collectively created plan for the Uptown ICZ

If you would like to attend one of more of the meetings, please RSVP at or call Seva Gandhi at 773-769-6363 x312.
