North Lake Shore Drive Study Public Input Opportunity

Help us continue to improve North Lake Shore Drive!

Let your voice be heard! The Illinois Department of Transportation and the Chicago Department of Transportation invite you to provide feedback concerning the improvement of U.S. 41 (North Lake Shore Drive) from Grand Avenue to Hollywood Avenue in Chicago. Since the last public meeting, the project team has evaluated criteria and narrowed the range of alternatives. We want to hear from you! Due to ongoing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, this Public Meeting (#4) will be conducted online through an interactive website. There are multiple opportunities to provide feedback!

Interactive Website

We have created a clearinghouse of materials, interactive exhibits, and an audio-visual presentation to provide a refresher on the project and help you review project updates. The interactive site is live.

Input can be provided through the interactive website in multiple ways:

  • Use the interactive map to comment and provide input on the proposed improvements
  • Complete a survey to tell us how you use the Drive and lakefront and share your priorities
  • Review the project exhibits and leave notes in the comment area
  • Sign up for a small group discussion with the project team

Written comments can be submitted through the interactive website, project website, or mailed to the project team. Comments received by November 9, 2020 will become part of the official public meeting record.

Sincerely,

The North Lake Shore Drive Project Team

Kelly Park Volunteer Clean-Up Effort

Saturday, September 5th • 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM CDT

John H. Kelly Park • 3800 N. Seminary Avenue

Chicago’s parks need you to pitch in!

This summer, the Chicago Parks Foundation is leading a citywide volunteer initiative to help keep the parks clean. In partnership with the Chicago Park District and our communities, we look forward to coming together to pitch in for the parks.

Over the past few months, park budgets have been stretched and there are fewer seasonal employees. The Chicago Parks Foundation is providing cleanup supplies and safety guidelines throughout the city to help support the parks’ ongoing maintenance. Please join us and share the park love!

The Chicago Parks Foundation is the 501c3 partner of the Chicago Parks.

How it works

  1. REGISTER TO VOLUNTEER at the park(s) of your choice by selecting the dates/times you will show up to volunteer.

  2. SHOW UP SAFELY! Cleanup supplies will be provided for you onsite, and you can do your part by:

    • wearing a face mask/covering (required at all times; supplies are limited, please bring your own!)
    • sticking to a group of fifty (50) people or less and consciously practicing physical distancing
    • wearing protective gloves and avoiding hazardous materials like glass and needles
    • review the full Volunteer Safety Guidelines prior to your cleanup
    • if you are feeling unwell or exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms at the time of your cleanup, please stay home – no need to alert us!
  3. Check back on the Chicago Parks Foundation’s website throughout the summer as more parks sign up to join us and additional dates/times are listed, or contact info@chicagoparksfoundation.org about organizing a cleanup effort for your park.
