CHIdeas? Add Your Voice To The Conversation!

In October, Mayor Emanuel launched the second round of CHIdeas, an online community forum to engage Chicago residents and businesses in a discussion on how to improve services at City Hall, create initiatives in our neighborhoods, and enhance quality of life.

He announced that the City would be implementing three ideas from the first round and introduced the new conversation topics – including small business.

The public responses to the small business question - How can our Small Business Expos across the city better support small business owners and entrepreneurs? – will help improve these expos moving forward. is an online platform where government and citizens work together to address civic challenges.
