SNA Lincoln Yards Community Meeting Information

Thank you for all who attended and participated in our community meeting last night at DePaul University. We appreciate Aldermen Hopkins, Smith and Waguespack too for coming and for participating in the discussion.

Here is a link of all of the information we compiled in our recent survey on the proposed Lincoln Yards development in the North Branch Corridor.

It includes a slide deck of the presentation, a top 10 and top 30 list of community concerns and the answers received from the essay questions including top concerns, what should be accepted, changed and rejected based on what we know so far. We hope this will be reviewed by anyone interested and someone will continue to review the data and report on what the community stated in their responses both qualitative and quantitatively.
We will share this information directly with Sterling Bay via their PR reps and hopefully continue to discuss the top concerns with them. We hope too this information will be helpful to them in their redesign of their proposal as we move forward with the development.
A Facebook Live video of the presentation is on our association FB page.
Here are the top 10 community concerns:


  1. #1  Congestion mitigation & traffic impact

  2. #2  Master Plan & vision of development

  3. #3  Open Space and Riverfront Access

  4. #4  City of Chicago should hire an Independent Traffic consultant to conduct an overall Traffic Impact Study

  5. #5  Infrastructure funding details & taxpayer burden

  6. #6  Proper Environmental Cleanup

  7. #7  Make public total development fees contributions from Sterling Bay and the City of Chicago

  8. #8  Limit density bonuses to improve traffic impact
