The Lightfoot administration is seeking volunteers to serve on a Community Advisory Committee (CAC) for Sterling Bay’s $6-billion Lincoln Yards mixed-use project. The city is working with Sterling Bay and Ald. Brian Hopkins.
“The Lincoln Yards Community Advisory Council will ensure transparency by giving a voice to residents, stakeholders and others impacted by the project,” said Mayor Lori Lightfoot. “As I’ve made clear from the beginning, this project and others like it must utilize inclusive development, create new jobs for our residents, and include public input at every step of the way.”
The 14-member CAC will consist of neighborhood representatives, community leaders, design professionals, and subject-matter experts appointed by Lightfoot and Hopkins in consultation with neighboring aldermen and local stakeholders. The group will meet at least quarterly starting in early 2020.
Simultaneously, the Lightfoot administration announced a CAC to advise on Related Midwest’s The 78 in the South Loop.
