ON TO 2050 Launch Event 

Thousands of residents from across metropolitan Chicago have contributed their ideas to ON TO 2050, our region’s next comprehensive plan. The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning invites you to join us on Wednesday, October 10, 2018, in beautiful Millennium Park in Chicago, to celebrate the launch of ON TO 2050, our region’s blueprint for a resilient, inclusive, thriving future. 

That future belongs to, and relies upon, all of us—and the work to achieve it starts now. Keynote speaker Clarence Anthony, CEO and executive director of the National League of Cities, will inspire attendees to continue working together to tackle our challenges and achieve the three principles set forth in ON TO 2050: Inclusive Growth, Resilience, and Prioritized Investment. Local leaders from across metropolitan Chicago will discuss their action plans for achieving priorities and creating the future our region deserves.   

Tickets to this event are sold out. Please join us for a standing room only event.
