UPDATE: The Roseland Medical District Existing Conditions Report is complete. The report is available for download below.
With support from CMAP's Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program, the Far South Community Development Corporation (CDC) developed 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 prioritized 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 include mobility, land use, and economic development.
The planning process consisted of four phases. Phase one assessed existing conditions of the neighborhood, including data analysis and research. The second phase focused on gathering input about the community’s past, present, and future planning priorities. CMAP conducted interviews with community stakeholders who are critical to the development of the corridor. In phase three, initial recommendations were be created and vetted with Far South CDC staff, project partners, and other key institutions. The final phase included report creation and discussion of report implementation.
