Chicago Announcements December 12, 2023

Mayor Brandon Johnson signed an executive order Monday aimed at making the process for obtaining city approvals related to commercial and residential developments more efficient. According a news release from the mayor's office, the executive order "requires 14 City departments to evaluate their existing processes and propose solutions that facilitate development by removing bottlenecks and accelerating review and approval timelines." In the next 90 days, affected departments will be required to come up with proposed changes that would streamline their processes and incentivize more commercial and residential development. The departments would need to submit their proposed changes in reports to Deputy Mayor of Business and Neighborhood Development Kenya Merritt, according to the news release. The executive order also creates a new Director of Process Improvement position in the mayor’s office that will manage the implementation of the order's goals.
