There are exciting plans for celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the collaboration of Daniel Burnham and Edward Bennett and the Commercial Club of Chicago in creating a new plan for the greater Chicago region. Please join us for a discussion of how the Burnham Plan Centennial celebration is providing a springboard for our region’s communities, leaders and institutions to come together and build on the success of the Burnham Plan to ensure that metropolitan Chicago continues to be one of the world’s best places to live and work. Ms. Simmons and Mr. Blankenhorn will speak about the bold plans from around the region, such as the Green Legacy Projects, Chicago Metropolis 2020 and the GO TO 2040 regional plan, setting us on the path to succeed in the 21st century global competition for jobs, prosperity and quality of life and explain how organizations and individuals can get involved.
