Redfine the Drive

The North Lake Shore Drive Project Team has circulated the Top 20 Ideas to Redefine the Drive as submitted in the Task Force and public meetings. I have not had time to think about them, but I am pleased that improved transit, reduced speeds for automobiles, and “bring back the Boulevard style” are among them.

I have little hope that there will be a bold re-envisioning that truly prioritizes and facilitates non-automobile uses of the Lakefront and both facilitates and anticipates reduced demand for private auto space. It was an unsatisfying experience, but I don’t know that it could have been a satisfying experience.
