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.
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 also looking for Volunteers!
