On June 23, 2018 The City of Chicago Heights, The Housing Authority of Cook County, and Camiros put on a “Celebration Event” to kick off the planning process for the Downtown/East Side Choice Neighborhoods Plan. People came from around the community to play games, eat and drink, and build upon the community connections that make Chicago Heights so special. Event organizers collected input from community members on how they want their community to grow and change.
At the Celebration Event, the planning team had the opportunity to speak with about 20-30 people and everyone had something interesting to say. The team brought markers and six posters that posed questions about Downtown and the East Side. The community response was varied and insightful into the social and physical fabric of Chicago Heights.
