With support from CMAP's Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program, the Far South Community Development Corporation (CDC) will develop an existing conditions report centered on 111th Street Corridor and the Roseland Medical District within the Roseland community on Chicago’s far south side. The report will prioritize the main issues of the corridor and surrounding community, formulating a plan of action including assessments of mobility, land use, and development potential, as well as community engagement and visioning. Key themes of the final report will include mobility, land use, and economic development.
The planning process consists of four phrases to be completed over twelve months. Phase one assesses existing conditions of the neighborhood, including data analysis and research. The second phase will focus on gathering input about the community’s past, present, and future planning priorities. CMAP will conduct interviews with community stakeholders who are critical to the development of the corridor. In phase three, initial recommendations will be created and vetted with Far South CDC staff, project partners, and other key institutions. The final phase will include report creation, community feedback, and discussion of report implementation.

The plan will consist of four phases to be completed in approximately 12 months:
- Existing Conditions Research
- Community Outreach and Stakeholder Engagement
- Draft Recommendations
- Final Report
