The Chicago Plan Commission is responsible for the review of proposals that involve Planned Developments (PDs), the Lakefront Protection Ordinance, Planned Manufacturing Districts (PMDs), Industrial Corridors and Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Districts. It also reviews proposed sales and acquisitions of public land as well as certain long-range community plans. Established in 1909, the commission has 23 members, including mayoral appointees made with City Council consent. Staff services are provided by the Planning and Zoning Division of the Department of Planning and Development (DPD). Meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month, usually at City Hall, 121 N. LaSalle St., in City Council chambers.

Master PD Updates

DPD is accepting public comment on improved review and approval procedures for Chicago's largest construction projects that were first presented to the Plan Commission at its meeting on Oct. 17, 2019. The proposed requirements would supplement existing protocols for Planned Development (PD) projects and create a "Master PD" designation that would apply to projects of a certain size and scope. The Master PD designation would be required for private projects that exceed 20 acres, 4 million square feet of space or 4,000 dwelling units, and for public projects that exceed 10 acres, 2.5 million square feet or 2,500 dwelling units.

The original public comment period has been extended as the request of various community groups, members of the general public, and members of the development community. All comments and questions should be emailed to DPD@cityofchicago.org by Monday, Dec. 16, 2019.
