Chicago Department of Transportation wants to hear from you!


The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) has launched a month-long, city-wide survey to seek input from Chicagoans about what they appreciate about their streets and sidewalks and what improvements they would like to see.  The survey is designed to help CDOT create guidelines for future improvements in the public right of way.

 CDOT is conducting the survey to gather input for the creation of Placemaking Guidelines for the public right of way.  Placemaking is the term used by urban planners for the process of enhancing public spaces by capitalizing on a community’s assets and potential to improve the quality of life and create vibrant neighborhoods.

The survey can be taken online at: Learn more at
