On Monday, the Mayor’s office announced new proposals for renovations of Soldier Field. These proposals come as a result of the findings and recommendations of the Mayor’s Museum Campus Working Group. YIMBY recently reported on the Museum Campus Working Group’s published report, Where Worlds Connect, which details the scope of the plan to update the Museum Campus.
Museum Campus Working Group
On July 7th, the office of Mayor Lori E Lightfoot issued a press release including a report detailing future plans for the iconic Chicago Museum Campus. The Mayor’s office unveiled a museum campus working group in February to help present recommendations “for new campus activations through arts and culture, transportation, education, youth services, and more.” The working group is composed of leaders and policymakers from around Chicago with experience in “key issue areas.” Their focus includes solving for needed cultural amenities, expanding publically accessible recreation space, maximizing athletic facilities, and creating more equitable transit access.
