Phoenix Sustainability Initiative is excited to welcome Midway Plaisance Advisory Council’s President, Bronwyn Nichols Lodato, to explain the City of Chicago’s proposal to designate the eastern end of the Midway Plaisance as an Urban Parks and Recreation Recovery Program (UPARR) replacement area following the construction of the Obama Presidential Center (OPC) in Jackson Park. Currently, the plan to use the eastern end of the Midway as a UPARR replacement space involves creating new green space by draining wetlands located in the park.
