City of Chicago Transition Report
On May 10, Chicago Mayor-elect Emanuel released a 72-page transition report, which he said the public should use as a "scorecard" for his mayoral term The report outlines major initiatives -- grouped in categories of government, communities, children, and growth -- that the City will undertake during the first 100 days, first year, and first term of Mr. Emanuel's administration Its emphasis on transparency, accountability, and measurable outcomes is very much in keeping with recommendations of the GO TO 2040 comprehensive regional plan, which includes Efficient Governance among its top priorities Also this week, the Chicago Tribune had a story about the transition relative to the city's transportation needs and priorities, referencing GO TO 2040 and quoting CMAP executive director Randy Blankenhorn.
