Members of the fourteen-person Lincoln Yards Community Advisory Council (CAC), plans for which were first announced by Mayor Lori Lightfoot in December 2019, were appointed earlier this summer.

The CAC consists of “neighborhood representatives, community leaders, design professionals and subject-matter experts” chosen by Lightfoot and 2nd Ward Alderman Brian Hopkins in consultation with neighboring aldermen to make recommendations ranging from public infrastructure design to traffic control and open space. LCA member Kenneth Dotson was among the fourteen appointed to serve.

The first CAC meeting was held via Zoom on June 15th. The group will convene at least quarterly for the next three years. (Read more here.) The complete list of CAC appointees is can be found below:
