The West Town Five-Year Master Plan seeks to further the Chamber's on-going objectives: 

" To foster community and economic development by empowering businesses with information, networking opportunities, marketing, and other programs."

West Town is a fast-growing, vibrant community with a wealth of cultural institutions, diverse neighborhoods, and prosperous local businesses. However, rapid development brings its own unique challenges. This plan seeks to encourage continued community growth while preserving the people, places, and institutions that make West Town one of Chicago's great destinations. 

This Master Plan seeks to establish a vision of the future by providing a road-map for the community to be implemented within the next five years. This plan is structured with Five Big Ideas each with a set of goals and specific actions. Implementation of the Five Big Ideas is divided into specific actions in which YOU as residents, business owners, property owners and community members can participate, potential programs that WE the Chamber can put into place, and suggested actions that THEY the local Aldermen and city departments can advocate for in order to help make this plan a reality. 

During the creation of the We Are West Town: A 5-Year Master Plan, community meetings allowed for transparency and discussion amongst stakeholders. Commentary, guidance, and suggestions were received and noted to create and explore possible goals for the plan. The implementation process seeks to take those concerns, objectives, and goals generated by the community stakeholders, and execute a viable and cohesive action plan for the future. Creating community partnerships with other like-minded groups, researching, data collection, and testing concepts are all part of the implementation process established to better serve West Town and its stakeholders.
