Consultants to chat up lakefront ‘stakeholders’

The city is inviting people who participated in the lakefront vision planning sessions earlier this year to meet one-on-one with the consultants who’ve been hired to turn the vision into a physical plan.

The sessions, described in a letter from Parks/Forestry & Recreation Director Doug Gaynor as a Stakeholder Open House, will be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, July 23, in Rooms 2402 and 2403 of the Civic Center. The letter asks that stakeholders schedule an appointment time for their session by calling Patricia Natke of the UrbanWorks consulting firm at 312-202-1200.

The lakefront vision documents are available on the city’s web site.

The city also has scheduled a series of three public workshops from Sept. 19 to Oct. 4 to develop the lakefront master plan.
