Chicago planning department seeks dealers for focus group

November 18, 2010

The City of Chicago’s Department of Planning and Development is seeking input from dealers about problematic issues they face—or would face—in operating in the city. Dealers in the city and those thinking about opening in the city should call Fran Spencer at 312-744-2737.


The department promotes economic development in Chicago by helping new and existing businesses meet their goals for growth while creating new jobs.


Departmental efforts use community-based planning and are augmented through the cooperation of community residents, business groups, delegate agencies and other organizations.


The department also offers a comprehensive menu of financial resources, such as low-interest loans and tax increment financing, and business services like site assistance and market information.
