What’s your vision for the Polish Triangle?

Polish TriangleBy Karin Sommer, Metropolitan Planning Council

The Special Service Area for the Wicker Park and Bucktown neighborhoods and the Metropolitan Planning Council are teaming up to transform the Polish Triangle at the intersection of Ashland, Milwaukee and Division Streets into a great public place. And we need your help!

Over the next year, a steering committee led by WPB and MPC and consisting of Aldermen Flores, Waguespack, and Burnett, as well as community organizations and city agencies, will collect ideas from neighborhood residents through surveys, outreach, and community meetings. We will keep you informed about these upcoming events through email blasts and the WPB website, wickerparkbucktown.org.

You can also become a part of the action by joining an online Placemaking network at theplacemakingmovement.ning.com. Check out the Polish Triangle group for project updates.

This collaboration is part of MPC’s Placemaking Chicago project. Placemaking is an approach to the creation and maintenance of public spaces that emphasizes parks in each community for residents to enjoy, neighborhoods that make people get out of their cars and explore, and safe, well-used public spaces that support economic development and foster residential pride.

The goal of Placemaking is to work with residents to develop a vision for their public spaces. For more information about Placemaking, please visit placemakingchicago.com.

Please share your vision for the Polish Triangle. Together, we can transform this space into a well-used public place that is truly an asset to the community.

  1. Will there still be 1,000 pigeons per person after the development?
