Welcome to the project website for the Kedzie Corridor Plan! A project of Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) and the City of Chicago.

About

The Kedzie Corridor Plan is a comprehensive approach to address the challenges facing the Corridor, particularly to improve safety through physical and economic means. By collaborating with Garfield Park stakeholders, residents, and community partners, the Kedzie Corridor Plan will help rebuild the corridor – whether through green infrastructure and open space, public art and events, or through creating a more pleasant walking and biking environment.

CONTEXT:  Kedzie Corridor in East Garfield Park has seen rapid changes over the past 5-10 years. Disinvestment and public safety concerns are beginning to give way to community improvement. The Kedzie Corridor is rich with public transit (two CTA rail stations, a myriad of major bus lines and Metra service), ample land, and a number of significant redevelopment projects, such as CVS, City Escapes, and Cristy Webber Landscapes. Organizations such as the Garfield Park Community Council are galvanizing community support, artists have been investing in their spaces, and organizations such as Breakthrough Urban Ministries are providing youth and family enrichment programs.
