A Chicago group that promotes improvements in the city's Loop business district has announced its first strategic action plan, a five-year blueprint for attracting more people and investment to the area.
The Chicago Loop Alliance announced the plan Monday. It includes projects such as transforming Wabash Avenue with lighting, cleanliness and art into a tourist destination that celebrates Chicago's elevated train.
The group's executive director, Michael Edwards, says the plan's initiatives "will enhance the experience of all Loop workers, visitors, residents and students for years to come."
A full copy of the plan is available for download at the group's website.
The alliance is hired by the city to provide services for a business improvement district on State Street from Congress Parkway north to Wacker Drive.
