Designated a national monument by President Obama in February 2015, Pullman is a treasure of Chicago’s south side. In its heyday as a manufacturing town, Pullman provided the setting for the evolution of industry and transportation, achievements in planning, architecture, and landscape architecture, the foundation of labor law, and the advancement of civil liberties for African Americans. A technical team comprised of forty volunteer architects, landscape architects, city planners, economists, and engineers assembled to work with Pullman stakeholders to develop a roadmap for improvement and operations. A three-day workshop was conducted to engage the community about their ideas and more than 500 people attended the events. Discussion was organized around four topics: 1) Park Experience, 2) Historic Preservation and Adaptive Reuse, 3) Access and Connections, and 4) Community Development.
