Taft Chicago partner Liz Butler will be a panelist at Elevated Chicago’s 2022 Equitable Transit Oriented Development (ETOD) Symposium on Dec. 1. The panel, “Connected Communities on the Ground: Implementing the Ordinance,” will discuss Connected Communities, an amendment of the zoning code to make equitable development close to transit hubs easier to build, more accessible to residents, and safer for all. Speakers will talk about the steps taken to develop the ordinance, early implementation highlights, and what it will take to make the Connected Communities commitment a reality.
