MPC asks residents what they want to see in the Polish Triangle

Their latest project is the transformation of the intersection of Division Street, Ashland Avenue, and Milwaukee Avenue, at a crossroads also known as the Polish Triangle.  MPC has gathered insight and feedback from more than 700 people, using online surveys, in-person workshops and by starting a public group on the Placemaking Movement – PPS’s online social network.  So far, ideas from the community have included public art and traffic calming.
