About CMAP

The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) is the official regional planning organization for the northeastern Illinois counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and Will. CMAP developed and now guides the implementation of metropolitan Chicago’s comprehensive regional plan, GO TO 2040, which was adopted unanimously by leaders from across the seven counties in fall 2010. To address anticipated population growth of more than 2 million new residents, GO TO 2040 is an innovative, policy-based plan that establishes coordinated strategies to help the region’s 284 communities address transportation, housing, economic development, open space, the environment, and other quality-of-life issues. Among other honors, CMAP has received the American Planning Association’s first-ever National Planning Excellence Award for a Planning Agency and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Smart Growth Award.
