Formed in 2005, the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) integrates planning for land use and transportation in the seven counties of northeastern Illinois. Metropolitan Chicago will have an additional 2 million residents and 1.2 million jobs by 2030, and CMAP is developing strategies to address this growth's serious implications for transportation, housing, economic development, open space, the environment, and natural resources. The legislation creating CMAP passed unanimously in both houses of the Illinois General Assembly and was signed into law by Governor Rod Blagojevich on August 8, 2005. The new organization combined the region's two previously separate transportation and land-use planning organizations -- Chicago Area Transportation Study (CATS) and the Northeastern Illinois Planning Commission (NIPC) -- into a single agency.
