Englewood Quality of Life Plan II

In April of 2015, a decade of accomplishments by residents, community organizations, businesses, elected officials and clergy were celebrated at the 10th Anniversary of the 2005 Englewood Quality-of-Life Plan (EQLP). In January 2016 the community reconvened to begin the work of drafting an updated commnunity-driven Quality-of-Life Plan. Five task forces met to address the issue areas deemed most important to the community. Each task force developed visions, goals, and strategies to restore Englewood as one of Chicago's leading communities. 

EQLP is currently in its second year of implementation. The five task forces convene on a monthly basis: Health & Wellness, Education & Youth Develpoment, Housing & Public Spaces, Public Safety and Jobs & Economic Development. Each task force works to implement various projects to advance their wellness area in the neigborhood.
