​April 3, 2014

Approximately 100 members of the Consular Corps and the DePaul community gathered April 3 for the ninth annual Consular Corps Luncheon. Father Holtschneider introduced the keynote speaker, Randall Blankenhorn, executive director of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning. Under Blankenhorn's leadership, CMAP developed and now guides the implementation of GO TO 2040, Chicago's first comprehensive regional plan in more than 100 years. This plan serves the region's 284 communities by addressing transportation, housing, economic development, open space, the environment and other quality-of-life issues.
