The Milwaukee Avenue Green Development Corridor is an approximately 79-acre urban area along North Milwaukee Avenue between North Kimball Avenue and North California Avenue in the 35th Ward of Chicago. More than 95 percent of the surfaces are impermeable and there is less than one acre of park space in this dense urban setting, making the corridor an ideal place to model how multiple green infrastructure improvements clustered together can reduce stormwater runoff and pollution.

If your property is just outside the corridor boundaries, our project advisory team will still consider your application, but your project will have to be remarkable in order to receive grant funds. One of the goals of this project is to concentrate as many stormwater management improvements as possible in a small, well-defined area so we can determine whether they have a significant, measurable impact. We have limited funding available ($200,000 from the Ill. EPA’s Green Infrastructure Grants program), so we have to focus on our initial project area.
