Updating the South Lakefront Framework Plan – First Meeting

Hundreds of people turned out to the South Shore Cultural Center for the first public meeting to discuss updates to the South Lakefront Framework Plan on June 21. The Framework Plan was last updated in 1999, and revisions are urgently needed as many proposals and projects, including the Obama Presidential Center and the golf course renovation, take shape. The program consisted of an hour of presentations by engineering consulting firm SmithGroupJJR, golf course design firm TGR Design, Michael Strautmanis of the Obama Foundation, and Chicago Department of Transportation Comissioner Rebekah Scheinfeld. The second hour consisted of break-out sessions where questions and feedback were collected but generally not responded to in any official way.

Below are my live tweets from the first hour of presentations.
