The Chicago City Council has approved the pedestrian designation of part of N Milwaukee Avenue in Logan Square, as well as a new bill has been introduced establishing the Polish Heritage Corridor on the same road. Both measures are aimed at changing the way developments are built on the quickly changing road while also preserving its human scale and historical importance. The pedestrian designation will be similar to the same recently approved plan for Fulton Market, while the bill was recently introduced this year by Rep. Delia Ramirez.
