Future Leaders in Planning boot camp focuses on mobility

Future Leaders in Planning (FLIP) is CMAP's leadership development program for high school students in Northeastern Illinois. FLIP is a free program where teens learn about the issues that shape our region and how they can make an impact. Now in its eleventh year, FLIP recently held its first one-day boot camp in collaboration with the University of Illinois at Chicago's College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs. Twenty-four high school students from around the region learned about planning for transportation equity, accessibility, and walkability. The next boot camp is planned for the fall.
 
CMAP is currently accepting applications for the summer 2019 FLIP program, which runs from Monday, July 15, to Saturday, July 20. This year's full FLIP program will focus on ON TO 2050's mobility goals and recommendations.
 

New Healthy Communities website

A first-of-its-kind website, HealthyCommunitiesIllinois.org, aims to facilitate learning, idea sharing, and connections among urban planners, engineers, and public health professionals. The website was created by the American Planning Association – Illinois Chapter and the Illinois Public Health Institute.
 
ON TO 2050 includes strategies for the Chicago region and its communities to advance health equity, such as supporting initiatives that target resources and encourage collaboration.
 

RTA call for projects

The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) is accepting applications for projects that improve mobility for seniors and individuals with disabilities. Applications are due by Thursday, May 2, at noon. Learn more and download an application.
