Program: Freight and production drive urbanism. Chicago’s Central Manufacturing District, located near the former stockyards, combined walkable design, industrial facilities, and freight to provide high quality jobs and economic mobility for working class neighborhoods nearby. Today, communities transitioning away from large scale manufacturing are empowering their own citizens to incubate industries through strategies like the Park Forest Maker Space and rebuilding their economy through the bottom up. Join Scott Bernstein, President and Founder of the Center for Neighborhood Technology and Reggie Greenwood of the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association for an informative exploration of the intersection of land use, transportation, business incubation, and production. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in an interactive “Craft Beer Supply Chain” activity and a post-event cash bar Happy Hour following the presentations.CNU Illinois members, as well as non-members, are invited to attend.
