Get Involved

CMAP is always looking for ways to engage with residents and partners to help communities prosper in our region. We have multiple ways to get involved:



  • Attend a CMAP committee meeting. Implementation of ON TO 2050 involves the work of a number of active committees, whose meetings are open to the public, with agendas available online. View CMAP’s calendar for information about CMAP board and committee meetings.


  • Throughout the summer, 2019, the local Councils of Mayors and City of Chicago will be seeking public comment on proposed methodologies for selecting local projects to be funded through the Surface Transportation Program. Each council will adopt a methodology that incorporates performance-based programming and regional planning factors by September 30, 2019. CMAP and the Councils will publicize each opportunity for public comment.  Currently the Lake, Kane/Kendall, and Will Councils are inviting comments.  Details can be found here.


  • Help CMAP promote ON TO 2050 via your newsletter and social media. Use the messages found in the CMAP Partners Toolkit.





  • Plan a visit to CMAP. If you’d like to come to our offices or schedule a CMAP visit to your organization, please email us at


CMAP’s Public Participation Plan guides the agency’s proactive engagement of the residents and constituencies of northeastern Illinois and establishes core values for how CMAP integrates meaningful public engagement into its planning initiatives.  CMAP welcomes your suggestions for its public engagement partners and initiatives and invites you to email CMAP’s Communications and Outreach staff at or Contact Us.
