Municipal Design Review Network Tours SchoolStreet

About a month ago, on July 14th, Depaul University’s, Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development came to Libertyville to see the SchoolStreet project first hand. The group came here to “discuss the design and public process issues involved in downtown planning.” They focused on three development types; public, private, and non-profit.

To present Libertyville’s private downtown development ventures, StreetScape’s own John McLinden, took a group of about 65 experts in municipal development on a guided tour, explaining the urban planning concepts behind SchoolStreet.

Below are photos from the event, and above is a kind letter written to StreetScape from Libertyville’s Community Development Department.
