Why the 100th Street river location?

Local community organizers have been interested in river access at this 100th Street Calumet River site dating back as far as 20 years ago. These community residents imagined a site that could become a place that fellow community members could enjoy. We are now inviting you to participate in a process to help make that dream become a reality.

The following document is designed to allow an online community conversation, facilitated by the Great Cities Institute (GCI). We cannot meet you in person so we are using this online document as a way to get your feedback. Feel free to ask GCI questions but for the most part we will leave it to you, the community, to have a conversation about how you see this site being used in the future.

This is an interactive online document.

Please share your thoughts, ideas, concerns, wants, needs, knowledge and vision for what the 100th Street River Access site could become.

Your comments will be publicly visible and you may leave as many comments as you would like. This online discussion will be used to inform the development of this project by the community and project partners listed on page two of the document. Your responses are voluntary and you may stop at any point.

Please tag project-specific questions in the relevant location in the document and moderators will respond. For additional questions, please email gcities@uic.edu.
