Happy Earth Day!

Hello Neighbors,

We are wishing you a Happy Earth Day from the C40 Garfield Park project team! We are sincerely grateful to all of our supporters and interested stakeholders for working with us to make a better project and we are looking forward to bringing these new sustainable buildings and "net zero" homes to the Garfield Park community. We are excited to think that we will be well under construction next Earth Day!

Thank you to those of you who joined the committee meetings last Thursday night - we look forward to continuing to work with you going forward. if you didn't join a committee and would still like to, please email We will reconvene with a general update meeting on May 13, 2021 - stay tuned for details.

Finally - you may have seen the Sun Times article about the development yesterday - the zoning ordinance was introduced to City Council this week. The reporter called it Garfield Green - but as you know, that may not be our final name. We look forward to working with our committees to choose a name that best honors the work of the neighborhood in making this project a reality and our hopes for the future there!

Thank you for your continued interest and support!
