This month, september 14 2008, chicago Tribune posted in article that talked about how to make chicago better. Currently Chicago Metropolitan Agency for planning is beginning to draft a blueprint for the future of the seven counties that surround Chicago. This has been sparked by the 100th year anniversary of the legendary Burnham Plan that change the face of Chicago. The plan is often referred to as the most important document in the Cities history, which was writtten by Daniel Burnham and Edward Bennett. The plan created the breathtaking lakefront, Navy Pier, North Michigan Avenue, and framed the growth of the suburbs. Now the new generations leaders in the city want to finish what the Plan started. For example, Mayor Daley wants to extend the lakefront for new miles. 

The original Plan was art. It created a scene that changed the culture of the city. The people were able to have a place to enjoy the lakefront, and businesses thrived because Chicago became a better place to be. This current development will be another form of art. The plan will add another dimension to Chicago layout.

A new wave of innovation in the city is exactly what is needed. This comes at a perfect time when there is a current push to get the Summer 2016 Olympic Games to Chicago. The Olympic committee could view Chicago as a even better place to be to showcase to the entire world. Hopefully Chicago finds a way to raise enough money to accomplish there goals with this new plan because it will add another dimension to “global city” of Chicago.
