CMAP Visualization for 2040 Plan Implementation
SCB was contracted by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) to provide urban design concepts and high quality visualizations to support their Local Technical Assistance (LTA) projects. The LTA program was initiated by CMAP in March of 2011, with support from a US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) grant to provide assistance to communities in implementing the GO TO 2040 Regional Plan.
