The plan  is an innovative and new comprehensive course of action for addressing critical environmental issues in the following areas: planning and development; transportation; energy efficiency; renewable energy; water and air resources; green schools; public education; parks; green spaces; recycling and cleaning.

While fostering job growth, Edgewater will be fulfilling the goals of the Chicago Climate Action Plan, as well as bringing economic and aesthetic benefits to the entire community. Increased energy efficiency, improved transit, reduced automobile use, greater walk-ability, more parks and green space, cleaner air, and greater access to the lakefront will result in this culturally diverse community protecting the well-being of the individual, creating jobs with economic growth, and ensuring the quality of the environment for generations to come.
