ULI Chicago is conducting a Technical Analysis Workshop today, September 1st, in Willow Springs, IL to evaluate development opportunities for vacant sites located along the Sanitary and Ship, and I & M Canals. The workshop experts will look specifically at current and future industrial uses, options for integrating and optimizing transportation modes, and infrastructure improvements that will enhance development and amenities that already exist in the study area.
The Willow Springs Cargo-Oriented Development Workshop is an abbreviated panel format with briefing materials and background presentations, a site tour, stakeholder interviews, and panel recommendations presented to local representatives at the conclusion of the one-day meeting. The Workshop is presented in partnership with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) as a part of their Local Technical Assistance (LTA) Program. A written report will follow outlining panel recommendations. Watch for updates on the workshop outcomes in the coming months.
Thank you to our workshop experts who have donated both their time and talent to this project.
