ON TO 2050, the region's long-range plan, was adopted by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) Board in October 2018. The plan is guided by three principles: inclusive growth, resilience, and prioritized investment. Since the plan's adoption, the region has been challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to struggle with racial inequity, demographic changes, and the effects of climate change. At the same time, the region has new opportunities to invest in its residents, infrastructure, and communities.
Please join CMAP for a virtual roundtable discussion of the ON TO 2050 plan update on Thursday, May 12, from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. Register in advance.
This federally required update to ON TO 2050 will focus on several of the plan's technical components, including the changing conditions of our transportation system. CMAP invites input and discussion of the regional realities and trends that affect forecasting as the agency looks ahead to developing the next long-range plan.
The draft of the plan update will be available for public comment in June, followed by a public hearing in August. Public comments also can be submitted to email@example.com.
