CHICAGO 2011 Transition Plan
1 |Page 
Dear Friends:
During the campaign for Mayor of Chicago, I pledged to bring change to city government.Change starts as a vision, but to become reality, it needs to be embedded within a plan. Thisreport is a road map for building a better city government for Chicago.After February's election, I felt that we had no time to waste because the status quo is notworking for the people of Chicago. So we conducted a comprehensive review of the City'soperations and developed workable proposals for improvement.I assembled a transition team, a diverse and experienced group of Chicago leaders tasked withcreating the document you see today. They worked tirelessly to craft proposals that address thecore challenges facing our city: how to provide services at a lower price for taxpayers, ensurethat our children get a world-class education, and make Chicago's streets safer.This report outlines major initiatives the City will undertake during the first 100 days, first year,and first term of my administration. The ideas within build on Chicago's strengths as they layout a vision that will help our city thrive for years to come.This transition plan represents a true team effort. I am thankful to all of the transitioncommittee members for donating their time and energy. And I am thankful to the manyindividual Chicagoans who contributed by sharing their ideas on the Chicago 2011 website,www.chicago20011.org.Additionally, scores of organizations provided input to the transitioncommittees. All of their contributions were invaluable to creating the plan you see here.As you read this plan, I hope that you, too, will visit www.chicago2011.org to share your thoughts for moving Chicago forward.Yours,Rahm Emanuel

We would like to thank the many people who worked tirelessly to develop our plan and to accelerate asuccessful transition.
In the past 10 weeks, the transition committees met a total of 29 times in committee andsubcommittee sessions to develop and submit recommendations for consideration in this transition plan. As partof their process, the committees met with key stakeholders in neighborhoods throughout the city and analyzedand considered nearly 700 ideas, including 137 suggestions submitted via our public web site. The quality anddepth of the comments submitted on-line were truly impressive and added greatly to our deliberations. Thank youfor lending your good ideas to this process.
