Plan for 21st Century Chicago

Appropriating three to eight changes to current Chicago zoning would gain numerous benefits. These revisions are proposed for one small, ubiquitous element – the standard 25’ x 125’ lot. Omitting side yards, removing rear porch stairs, and raising basement levels would transform Chicago at no cost. Affordable homes would be feasible and every new home would have a back garden.
