Why should you come?

  • Learn about the Milwaukee Avenue Green Development Corridor grant program

  • Learn about other City of Chicago programs you can use
  • Get free design ideas for green infrastructure projects on your property
  • Have fun and meet your neighbors!

What should you bring?

Please bring aerial photos, blueprints or other schematics of your property to discuss with our designers.  Aerial images printed from Google Earth, Google Maps, or something comparable are sufficient.

Questions? Contact Josh Ellis at jellis@metroplanning.org

This workshop is free and open to the public, and no matter where your property is, you can benefit from attending.  Please note, however, only properties within the designated corridor are eligible for grant funding through this program. To be eligible for a grant, applicants must attend a program workshop, which will take place every three months, or until all grant funds have been awarded.  Additional workshops will occur at the same time and place on June 12 and Sept. 11.

The event is free, but please register.
