About the Event

Join CCAC and the CCAC Burnham Council for a series of inclusive leadership panels to strategize the way forward for the Central City. We believe the Central City belongs to all Chicagoans, and defining its future should include a range of diverse voices. This is an opportunity to build on CCAC’s 2019 A Central City Strategy for All of Chicago policy paper and recent CCAC successes linking Central City resources to initiatives for neighborhood commercial corridors and attracting investment to public sector land.

Panels will focus on how we can reconnect people to the Central City now, ensure a strong and equitable rebound from this recession over the coming years, and secure our long-term competitiveness. Please find more information below including individual registration links for each session.
