Today “We Will Chicago” invites the public to join their webinar on Public Health & Safety. As previously reported, this program is the first citywide initiative of its kind since the “1966 Comprehensive Plan.” We Will’s efforts are still evolving, but the three-year citywide planning initiative prioritizes equity, resiliency, and engagement to create an inclusive vision for the future of Chicago. The program is continuing this virtual series with the goal to increase vibrancy throughout Chicago, by looking at models and practices brought about by global thought leaders.
