The North Lake Shore Drive Project Team

Thank you to all who participated in the North Lake Shore Drive Phase I Study Public Input Opportunity which took place during the fall of 2020. Due to ongoing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, this Public Meeting (#4) was conducted virtually through the interactive website NLSDinput.org. The meeting was a great success as the project team received over 900 comments and 3,200 public survey responses!

Over the last few months, the project team has reviewed and analyzed your comments and survey responses to assist in refining the proposed designs. To learn more about the Public Input Opportunity and next steps for the project, please check out our Winter 2021 Newsletter!

All meeting materials, along with comprehensive survey responses, are available on the project website under the Public Input Opportunity tab. For a comprehensive view of the comments received, please visit NLSDinput.org and explore comments on the ideas wall and interactive map.

We welcome feedback at any time during the project process through the online comment portal or the project email info@northlakeshoredrive.org. We look forward to continuing to work with you to Redefine the Drive!

Sincerely,
The North Lake Shore Drive Project Team

Sarah’s Circle’s 29th Annual Winter Walk: a Mile in Her Shoes

Winter Walk: a Mile in Her Shoes highlights the harsh reality of women’s homelessness during the deadly cold of Chicago’s winters. Your support can make the difference between a woman struggling to survive alone on the street and a woman who is safe and warm in her own bed.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc on society, especially those most vulnerable. We are anticipating a greater demand for our services as evictions and lay-offs continue. Funds raised through Winter Walk are critical in meeting the demand of Sarah’s Circle’s services.

You can help by signing up to fundraise or by making a donation.
