Planning Committee

The Friends of the Chicago River Planning Committee consists of knowledgeable volunteer proffesionals from the fields of design, development, construction, planning, engineering, ecology, and marine recreation. The Planning Committee's primary role is to assist Friends in providing guidance for river edge developments.

The Planning Committee has many resources and extensive knowledge of developing on the edge of the river, as well as a thorough understanding of DPD’s new River Edge Design Guidelines and the River Edge Ordinance. The planning committee meets monthly throughout the year to review and discuss development projects within the Chicago River watershed.
