Fulton Market is a unique and rapidly developing corridor. The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) initiated the Fulton Market Streetscape project in 2013 to improve safety, upgrade infrastructure, and provide enhancements in response to this development while respecting the historic character of the area. Over the past year, CDOT has been developing the design for Section 2, Carpenter Street to Ogden Avenue, as an extension of Section 1, Halsted Street to Carpenter Street. The project team held over fourteen individual meetings with property owners and developers, two task force meetings, and two public meetings. The final streetscape design is a result of input provided at these meetings and comments made by reviewing agencies.

You may have seen Blue Bird Day at Mary Bartelme Park events or Eyas Landing summer camps playing at Union Park in the past. However, their largest community event comes each year in April. April is Autism Awareness month and it is a topic that resonates with Dr. Mraz, the staff and the clients at both organizations. As a way to give back, Dr. Mraz created and hosts the Expressions Gala. The Expressions Gala is a night of eating, drinking, networking and fundraising where 100% of the proceeds are donated to Autism Speaks.
