Why This Program Matters
Do you love Chicago and the Northeastern Illinois region?
If so, you have the hard work of regional planning agencies like CMAP to thank for protecting natural resources, reducing Transportation congestion, and promoting sustainable neighborhoods.
Will you still love this region in 2040, when it has grown to have 2.8 million more people?
If you want to, you will want to support the Phillip D. Peters Regional Planning Fellowship Program. The Program enables a graduate student to spend a summer devoted to sustainable land use and Transportation planning in our growing region.
