The board of the Sheffield Neighborhood Association has finished our community survey on the Lincoln Yards development proposal in the North Branch Corridor.  The meeting will be held at DePaul University Lincoln Park Student Center at 2250 N Sheffield Rm 314AB. The entrance is at Belden & Sheffield. Please mark your calendars and be sure to join us to review the latest details on the development and to review the SNA survey which has been completed. Doors will open at 5:30pm. Meeting starts at 6pm sharp. 

We are so glad to report that we have received 883 responses and 388 open ended responses on the optional section. We tried to put as wide a range of public opinions in the survey from actual online posts and media statements in order to measure how the larger community would rate those concepts in terms of their level of importance. Many of the insights are very interesting and intelligent. We look forward to sharing the details of our results once we pour through the data and organize it. 

For now a sneak peek...69.9% of the respondents live in the 60614, 11.4% in the 60647 and 8.4% in the 60622.  91.5% were within walking distance of the site. 63% of the 883 responses claimed to be an ‘easy walk’ from the development site and 28% said it’d be a hike but 'walkable'.
