Dear Friends,

This site has been created to provide an additional resource for interested community members to submit concerns and feedback on the redevelopment of the Children's Memorial Hospital site. This site will serve as an alternative for residents who are unable to attend every community meeting and as a point of clarification. Every effort will be made to provide access to all presentations, back-up documentation and reports from community meetings. In the coming months, I will provide a location that will showcase copies of all plans and designs as an additional option to encourage community review and comment.

The creation of a framework for future development is dependent upon input from a diverse representation of the community to bring a breadth of issues, ideas and perspectives. Public outreach, engagement and transparency are major factors in the planning process for the Children's Memorial site. All interested community members are encouraged to take part in this process. Each opinion is equally valued.

Healthy discussion will add to everyone's appreciation of potential uses and their drawbacks and benefits. The discussion will be moderated to prevent spam, profanity, postings that are not on- topic, etc.

I hope that you participate in every aspect of this process. Attend community meetings, post thoughts to this site, and encourage friends and neighbors to comment. As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions and look forward to continuing this process together.

Alderman Vi Daley

This blog is a terrific idea. I would like to know who "CMPlanning" is. Several posts from this "person" are shown. Is it HOK or someone else?

We have not received the video but will look into the possibility of having it posted.

CMH Planning is Alderman Daley and her office staff.

How about a state of the art basketball stadium for DePaul? Fund part of it as an Olympic stadium and then dedicate to DePaul after.

This blog is a great idea. I'm surprised by how few comments there have been so far considering the high visibility of this project. Perhaps not enough residents are aware of the site?
