Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP)

About CMAP

The Avondale Neighborhood Association (ANA) is thrilled to have been selected for the “On to 2050: CMAP Local Technical Assistance Program”. With support from our neighbors, community stakeholders, and City Council Members, ANA hopes to preserve the community while meeting the needs of all its residents. The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) is an award winning regional planning organization that aims to address transportation, housing, economic development, and other quality-of-life concerns of the city.

The Proposal

ANA’s proposal requested an assessment of the Kennedy Expressway, Belmont Avenue and North Kimball Avenue intersection that would include the Kennedy Plaza and Belmont Blue Line Station. Additionally, the comprehensive plan must:

  • Articulate a shared vision for the community for where and what developments is desired;

  • Promote the retention and development of affordable housing, maintain a wide diversity of businesses;

  • Promote safe and sustainable transportation options including pedestrian, bicycling, and mass transit;

  • Address issues of storm water and open space

ANA Is Asking For Your Support!

ANA has a goal to raise $9,000! Funds raised will go towards the assessment and design of a neighborhood plan for Avondale . The comprehensive plan will be used to guide recommendations for future developments in the area. Please consider supporting the Avondale Neighborhood Association and the future of our neighborhood. Thank you in advance for your continuous support.
