Walk along the Chicago River to visit several recently completed Riverwalk segments financed and built through private developments as part of the City’s 30′ Riverfront Setback Ordinance. Hear how developers use riverfront sites to attract residents and employees, expand the City’s riverwalk, and add to the downtown’s waterfront openspace. Also learn how the City is planning to address constrained sites along the River to develop a continuous Riverfront Trail through downtown and the entire City of Chicago. Participants will also get to experience the recently completed, publicly financed Riverwalk between State Street and Lake Street.
