The Framework Plan transforms Bubbly Creek into a highlighted feature amenity to the rapidly changing and historic Bridgeport community of Chicago. Rezoning concepts explore potential Transit Orientated Development practices, stormwater strategies connect Bridgeport to the creek through a native plant palette and sustainable runoff treatments, and elements such as overlooks, boardwalk connections over wetland restoration, open park space, and pierscapes connect adjacent land uses to Bubbly Creek.
