Master Planning

The original WPB Master Plan was adopted February 10, 2009 and was created with extensive public input and participation. In 2016, the Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce and WPB SSA #33 commissioned an update to the original Master Plan. You can view the entire 2016 WPB Master Plan here
