Open Spaces - Riverwalk Open Spaces - Riverwalk Environment & Sustainable Development
In 2009, CDOT opened the first sections of the river-level walkway from Michigan Avenue to State Street. The walkway winds under the Michigan and Wabash bridges, providing an uninterrupted route along the river from State Street to the lakefront. The walkway was built out 17-20 feet into the river to create a new shoreline. Future plans call for extending the Riverwalk to Franklin. CDOT built the basic infrastructure for the Riverwalk as part of the Wacker Drive reconstruction of 2001-02. From spring to fall, the Riverwalk is home to several restaurants and retail spaces.

Chicago Historic Resources Survey - Red and Orange Buildings Chicago Historic Resources Survey - Red and Orange Buildings Historic Preservation
The Chicago Historic Resources Survey (CHRS), completed in 1995, was a decade-long research effort by the City of Chicago to analyze the historic and architectural importance of all buildings, objects, structures, and sites constructed in the city prior to 1940. During 12 years of field work and follow-up research that started in 1983, CHRS surveyors identified approximately 9,900 properties which were considered to have some historic or architectural importance. Please note that this CHRS dataset is limited and does not include the entire survey: 1. A color-coded ranking system was used to identify historic and architectural significance relative to age, degree of external physical integrity, and level of possible significance. This dataset only includes buildings identified with the two highest color codes: "Red" and "Orange." Buildings and structures coded "Red" or "Orange" (unless designated as a Chicago Landmark or located within a Chicago Landmark District) are subject to the City of Chicago’s Demolition-Delay Ordinance (link to: http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/dcd/supp_info/demolition_delay.html), adopted by City Council in 2003. 2. Only buildings are included in this dataset; structures and objects such as bridges, park structures, monuments and mausoleums, generally are not represented. Likewise, garages, coach houses, and other secondary structures associated with a building may not be consistently depicted or color-coded. If an “Orange”- or “Red”-rated building was demolished after 2008, it may still appear in the map. The CHRS occasionally rated only part of a building or part of a group of joined buildings as “Orange” or “Red;” however the entire building or group of joined buildings may be incorrectly identified as “Orange” or “Red.” Additional information about the CHRS is available at www.cityofchicago.org/Landmarks/ or by contacting the Historic Preservation Division at (312) 744-3200.

Liquor Moratorium Districts - Dry Precincts - KML Liquor Moratorium Districts - Dry Precincts - KML Community & Economic Development
The Illinois Liquor Control Act of 1934 permits voters in any precinct in the City of Chicago to vote an entire precinct “dry” through a local option referendum. If a precinct has been voted “Dry/Dry,” no liquor licenses, other than a caterer’s liquor license, may be issued. If a precinct has been voted "Dry/Wet" no liquor licenses can be obtained for the consumption of alcohol on premise but the sale of package goods is allowed along with the caterer’s liquor license. The VOTE_DRY_I column is the Precinct/Ward which was voted dry. It reflects the Ward/Precinct that was effective at the date of the referendum. Ward/Precinct boundaries may have changed since that date. STATUS column indicates if the precinct was voted 'dry/dry' or 'dry/wet'.

Liquor Moratorium Districts - Taverns - KML Liquor Moratorium Districts - Taverns - KML Community & Economic Development
No new tavern licenses can be issued to any location that is within 400 feet of existing businesses already licensed for the sale of alcoholic liquor in certain zoning districts. Measurements are made from the property line and exclude streets, alleys, and public ways. This prohibition does not apply to restaurants, hotels offering restaurant services, or not-for-profit clubs. There are nine major classes of liquor licenses in the City of Chicago, the most common being Tavern, Package Goods and Incidental - Consumption on Premises. These categories were established to help the City identify and regulate the various types of establishments serving alcoholic beverages. They are described at the following link: http://bit.ly/P0Gn4c. The Chicago City Council has passed a series of ordinances restricting the issuance of liquor licenses in various locations throughout the City in sections 4-60-022 and 4-60-023 of the Municipal Code. In general, consumption on premises liquor licenses are affected by the 022 moratorium and Package Goods are affected by the 023 moratorium. However, moratoriums can be complicated, so determining whether or not a moratorium applies to a specific license application is not always straightforward. Users of the data should contact the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection if they have any questions. These GIS layers show the locations of moratoriums passed by the City Council. It is updated monthly if any restrictions have been added or deleted. Columns are as follows: • CODE refers to the specific ordinance passed by City County. If there are more than one, they are connected by an underscore. They are in the format ww.nnn where ww is the ward number and nnn is a sequential number. • ST_SDE refers to which side of the street the ordinance refers to. • CREADATE is the date that the ordinance was input into the digital system, usually within a week after passed by City Council. Dates before 2003 do not relect the actual date passed. To view or use this KML file, special GIS software such as Google Earth is required.
