CHICAGO, IL. – On Thursday, August 21, 2014, National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis will join Illinois state and local officials for a public meeting to discuss possible options for including Chicago’s Pullman neighborhood in the National Park System.
At the meeting, interested community members will have an opportunity to share their thoughts about the site and to learn more about the process for including new sites in the National Park System.
“Public engagement is critical to the identification and development of proposed sites for inclusion in the National Park System,” said Jarvis. “I am looking forward to the opportunity to see the Pullman community again and participate in a conversation about how to preserve this important piece of America’s history and culture.”
