In October 2010, leaders from across the seven-county region unanimously adopted GO TO 2040, metropolitan Chicago's first comprehensive regional plan in over 100 years. To address anticipated population growth of more than 2 million new residents, GO TO 2040 establishes coordinated strategies that help the region's 284 communities address transportation, housing, economic development, open space, environment and other quality-of-life issues. The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) developed and now guides implementation of the plan with its many partners, including MPC.

CMAP has initiated an "update" of GO TO 2040 as required by MAP-21, which calls for regional plans such as this to be revised every four years. Join us for a roundtable on May 29 where CMAP Executive Director Randy Blankenhorn will discuss GO TO 2040's implementation progress and highlights from the update before the formal public comment period begins in June. Regional leaders will provide input on the role partners play in implementing GO TO 2040 recommendations.

Confirmed speakers:

Randy Blankenhorn, Executive Director, Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning
Toni Preckwinkle, President, Cook County Board
Leanne Redden, Acting Executive Director, Regional Transportation Authority
Thomas Weisner, Mayor, City of Aurora, and Board Member, Illinois Tollway

MPC thanks ComEd for sponsoring this roundtable.
