A brief description of successful community stakeholder engagement outcomes from the previous three years:
Some shared successes include those listed under EN9 - Community Partnerships but others include physical changes to the campus including the vacation of a city street impacting parking availability and the redevelopment of the CTA Loyola El station. Both of these had some community criticism but overwhelming support from the sustainability community of Edgewater and Rogers Park.
