The Central Avenue corridor, in Chicago’s Austin community area, serves as a unifying and supportive spine through Austin, connecting its neighborhoods and districts. Local leaders would like to see Central Avenue become a vibrant commercial district. Austin Coming Together (ACT) is partnering with CMAP’s Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program to develop a plan that will guide revitalization and mobility on the Central Avenue corridor. The plan will focus on identifying economic development initiatives; redeveloping key sites for workforce innovation, arts, culture, and health; community and transportation safety; as well as exploring strategies to stabilize the housing market.
