2016 Annual Placemaking and Landscape Maintenance Seminar

9:15am – 12:30pm
Chicago Center for Green Technology
445 N Sacramento Blvd

On behalf of the City of Chicago, the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) hosts an annual Placemaking and Landscape Maintenance Seminar. Throughout Chicago, the City’s greening and placemaking initiatives including streetscapes, medians, people spots, people plazas, and traffic-calming, help improve the quality of life and add value to our neighborhoods.  The key to the success of these green spaces is the partnership between the City and the Community. This seminar is for those wanting to learn more about Chicago’s placemaking efforts, are maintaining neighborhood improvements in the public way, or those who love gardening and want to hear the latest news on plants, planting techniques, and best practices. Simultaneous presentations allow attendees a choice of focus.
