Elevating Chicago

About Elevating Chicago

In October 2009, new Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood (formerly of Illinois's 18th congressional district) gave a concise definition of Livability:  "If you don't want an automobile, you don't have to have one." Chicago is a great city, but by this definition, a lot of it fails to be livable.  By improving and increasing things like walkable neighborhoods, bus rapid transit, bike-sharing, or any number of other concepts aside from simply "making the L better," we can make Chicago a more complete city.

Ted Rosenbaum and Scott Hymen will be doing the posting, but we hope to hear from you--both when we're right and when we're wrong.  Formally educated in Mechanical Engineering and International Affairs, respectively, we'll be bringing the rigor those disciplines require to help Elevate Chicago.
