Over the past year and a half, Calumet City has been working alongside the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning and the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District to create the Calumet City Subarea Plan – a plan for a small geographic area on the eastern edge of the city that overlaps with the 1st and 5th wards.

Once it is complete, the subarea plan aims to:

  • Make it easier and safer to get around
  • Attract new businesses and keep existing ones
  • Minimize flooding and improve stormwater management

The plan is drafted and needs your input! Take a short survey (English / Spanish) and share your thoughts (English / Spanish) on the draft Calumet City Subarea plan!
