In response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Chicago has joined the State of Illinois in issuing a Stay at Home order effective Saturday, March 21st at 5pm CT. In addition, City of Chicago facilities are closed to the public. Staff are prioritizing essential services to protect the health and safety of our residents and employees. As such, we may be delayed in responding to non-essential inquiries and service requests. To stay up to date on the City of Chicago’s COVID-19 response, please visit the City Coronavirus Response Center site.
Over a 10-month period in 2016, the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) worked in conjunction with an advisory committee made up of developers and sustainability experts to create the new Chicago Sustainable Development Policy. The process also included more than a dozen meetings with developers, law offices, architectural firms and advocacy organizations to solicit feedback.
DPD would like to thank the committee members for their efforts toward making Chicago one of the most livable and sustainable cities in the world.
