Community Conversations about South Branch and Bubbly Creek River Opportunities - with the River Ecology and Governance Task Force

Tags: Attend

Join us for a conversation about riverfront issues and opportunities

The Rivers Task Force is hosting two events to connect with river advocates about local issues and opportunities in the Bridgeport, McKinley Park, and Pilsen neighborhoods.

Riverfront areas are experiencing new interest and investment, and Rivers Task Force members want to hear and learn from local residents, business owners, employees, and other stakeholders.

At the event there will be table displays with information about river edge sites, other existing conditions, the Chicago River Design Guidelines, and upcoming planning projects.

Representatives from the Rivers Task Force will be available to answer questions and hear ideas and input.

At this event you can:

  1. Learn about and discuss river edge opportunity sites

  2. Share your ideas about future riverfront improvements

  3. Help the Rivers Task Force better understand local community river issues

  4. Learn about ongoing and upcoming planning projects including the City of Chicago Department of Transportation’s South Branch Parks Access Study

We hope you can join us!
