Auburn Gresham Neighborhood Roundtable
The Auburn Gresham Neighborhood Roundtable was formed in spring 2020. Consisting of representatives from city agencies, aldermanic offices, neighborhood organizations, small businesses and resident groups, the roundtable seeks to advance local goals through a broad, cross-disciplinary approach that leverages the insights, wisdom, creativity and resources of local stakeholders.
The goal of the roundtables is transparency: to ensure the neighborhood voices are heard and integrated into the priorities of public and private investments, to obtain feedback on INVEST South/West projects as they advance, and to put planners at the table with neighborhood stakeholders.
The roundtable meetings are organized and led by Southeast Side planners from the Department of Planning and Development (DPD). The roundtable meets monthly on Zoom, and may conduct public, in-person meetings in Auburn Gresham once the ongoing public health crisis has subsided.
Questions on the roundtable can be directed to DPD@cityofchicago.org. Select materials and conversations from past meetings are listed below.
