Environmental prep work for a planned public plaza in Logan Square would be financed through $24,000 in Open Space Impact Fees (OSIF), under a proposal introduced to City Council today by Mayor Brandon Johnson.

The funding would pay remediation costs for the 7,000-square-foot site at 2420 N. Sacramento Ave., which is owned by the City and primarily used for parking. Once complete, planning and programming work for passive recreation and related uses would move forward with community representatives.

The OSIF program leverages fees paid by residential construction projects to help offset the impact of new residents on the community area’s open spaces.
