DePaul presents Dutch-inspired woonerf plan for Kenmore Avenue

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

DePaul University held a community meeting Tuesday night with a new vision for a two-block stretch in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood.

They presented the "woonerf design" for Kenmore Avenue.

It would stretch from Belden to Fullerton.

Woonerf is a Dutch term for "living street," meaning vehicles and residents share the street without vehicles having the right of way.

The plan needs city approval.
