We definitely need a grocery store. Restaurant/bars that cater to the age demographic of the people who actually live in Old Town. The concept for the majority of the neighborhood's bars and restaurants is the same--they serve bar food, turn into packed "night clubs" with lines down the street, and primarily cater to young kids who get sloppy drunk, litter the streets and start fights. It's like a giant frat party every weekend. We could use at least a couple restaurants and bars that serve a more mature clientele (like folks in their late 30s/40's/50s) with good food and a more sophisticated atmosphere. The neighborhood has become unsafe and annoying on weekend nights. My friends and I don't hang out here on weekends, we go to the West Loop or Gold Coast. It would be fantastic to feel comfortable going out in our own neighborhood on weekends.

Protected bike lanes. Wide walkable sidewalks. Shared streets. Public spaces for sitting. Reduced auto traffic and reduced on-street parking.

Mixed income, low to high. Supporting diversity. Inexpensive studio live/work options for young artists/ designers. Housing that is sustainable and carbon neutral, with places for electric vehicle charging, secure bicycle lots, green spaces, breezeways, opportunities for murals and public art.

Restaurants and cafes by young, local chefs, willing to try something new and diverse, similar to the explosion we see in the Fulton Market area or Logan Square, examples: Momotaro, PQM, Tempesta Market, Chiya Chai. Small retail shops similar to what you find in West Town and Ukrainian Village, examples: Circa Modern, Mohop Fab Lab, Sprout Home, Mildblend Supply Co., Rotofugi.
