As northeastern Illinois’ long-range plan, ON TO 2050 requires extensive and contant collaboration among stakeholders.

Review implementation matrices

ON TO 2050 provides opportunities to work together to help improve our region. Through the implementation matrices, local government officials, government staff, and nonprofits can help in five areas: communityprosperityenvironmentgovernance, and mobility.

Each area of the matrix provides ways that agencies, partners, CMAP, and the public can help improve our region. If you are seeking to help implement the plan, you’ll find information there.
