The Ravenswood Framework, adopted by the Chicago Plan Commission in February 2019, offers recommendations that focus on utilizing existing resources, incentives and programs to support the changing needs of existing and new businesses in the Ravenswood Industrial Corridor on Chicago's North Side.
A community-based process led by the Department of Planning and Development to review and enhance the Ravenswood Industrial Corridor started a year earlier, in February 2018. Part of Mayor Emanuel's Industrial Modernization Initiative, the process sought to maintain the corridor as an economic engine and vital job center, provide better access for all transportation modes, and enhance the area’s unique natural and built environment.
