The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning’s (CMAP) work — on behalf of 7 counties, 284 municipalities, and 8.6 million residents — is guided by ON TO 2050, the region’s 30-year comprehensive plan; a 5-year Strategic Direction; and the annual budget and work plan.
This budget and work plan (approved by the CMAP Board) identifies the functions and responsibilities for the fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) with the funding source and estimated resources needed to accomplish goals and objectives for these priorities.
