December Membership Meeting Recap: CCAC Holiday Membership Event
Almost 50 CCAC members gathered to celebrate the holiday season and hear DPD Commissioner Maurice Cox deliver a comprehensive update on the progress of INVEST South/West and what’s to come in the future.  One of the highlights Commissioner Cox discussed was the total investments to date: Over $1.4 billion committed to ISW projects by both private sources and The City of Chicago. 

Additionally, the audience was given a preview of new DPD initiatives including a residential infill program to be implemented in several of the current ISW corridors, as well as an ISW-like project being developed on the Northwest Side.  The NW Side site was identified by the local Alderman and CCAC is now assembling teams for both the residential project and the NW Side project.  Please contact Mark Hopkins, CCAC Executive Director, if you’re interested in participating on these teams.

Special thanks to Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner and CCAC Chairman Greg Hummel for hosting the event.
