Title:مسیر بلومینگدیل – مصاحبه با جیمی سیمون، AICP

مگان استرومبرگ، سردبیر ارشد مجله برنامه ریزی، با جیمی سیمون، مدیر برنامه پارک های شهری، جیمی سیمون، AICP درباره برنامه ریزی پروژه مسیر بلومینگدیل در شیکاگو، IL مصاحبه می کند.

قسمتي از متن فيلم: For more than a decade Chicago planners have been talking about turning this abandoned elevated railway line freight railway line into a multi-purpose trail today the bloomingdale trail is becoming a reality promising to take Chicago’s legacy of great parks to new heights the park and trail will stretch some two and

A half miles through the North Side neighborhoods of Logan Square Humboldt Park wicker park and bucktown engineering and preliminary designs were done earlier in 2012 and now the final phase two plans are underway that means that runners and bikers Sunday strollers and weekday commuters will soon be using

The trail and seeing Chicago from a new vantage point sometime by a fall 2014 I’m Megan stromberg senior editor at planning magazine at the American Planning Association here to tell us some more about the bloomingdale trail and the planning behind it is Jamie Simone aicp she’s the program director

For the urban parks program at the Trust for Public Land the Trust for Public Land is the project manager working with the city of chicago the chicago park district and friends of bloomingdale trail thanks for joining us thanks for having me so here we are near this 100

Year old railway freight railway line that some 16 feet up in the air planners have been talking about this for a decade but things really took off in 2004 can you tell me what happened then sure 2004 was when they Logan Square open space plan was adopted by the city

But even prior to that in 1998 was the city space plan and that’s really the first time that the Logan Square neighborhood was identified as a place that was severely lacking an open space so in 2004 when the logan square open space plan was done it quantified just

How lacking the neighborhood in the community area is it’s 99acres short of the standards of what a neighborhood should have for open space / based on its population so in 2004 that plan was adopted and then shortly after around the same time was when the Friends of the bloomingdale trail was form and

That’s really when the grassroots effort started and people began to organize around this Miguel trail and then in 2006 was when the trust for public land became involved I’m actually not far from here just a block to the west of where we are there’s a park that’s called julio de

Burgos park and the Trust for Public Land was involved in acquiring the land for that park in 2006 it’s one of the places along the line that’s identified as future access so the trust for public land purchased the land in 2006 developed the park and now it’s an

Active and functioning park and in the future it will have an access ramp that takes people up to the top okay and as I understand that the city owns the street right-of-way but not the embankment tell us a little bit about the ownership of that and in fact about the structure

Itself sure so you’re right it is in the bloomingdale right-of-way that’s why it’s called the bloomingdale traffic sits in the street called bloomingdale and so the city owns the right of way but the structure that you see behind us is owned by the canadian pacific railroad so the city has been working

With them to acquire the actual structure and there it has to go through a federal abandonment process because surface transportation board so it’s a little bit of a process but we’re moving along with that as anticipated and in terms of the structure it is a hundred years old as you mentioned it’s like

Many of the elevated railroads that you see throughout Chicago it’s a mostly a concrete structure there are 38 bridges that span the distance of the almost three miles it functions like a bathtub so there are very thick concrete walls that make up the structure and then it’s filled with

Ballast or rocks that support the rail but at the top and this project you already mentioned it’s a public-private partnership expected to cost about 91 million dollars can you tell me what’s sort of the most expensive part of this project well as I mentioned there are 38 bridges it’s a huge infrastructure

Project so just when you think about 38 bridges they all are for the most part structurally sound but they do need some cosmetic work you can see it a little bit in this structure although this one looks pretty good there are places where the concrete is falling so there’s just

A lot of structural concrete work that needs to be done so 38 bridges and then the other thing I always remind people is since it’s a three mile structure that’s actually six miles of edges so it’s six miles of safety and bar rails that need to go up so just between those

Two I mean that’s a huge expense and then there’s landscape there are all the access ramps that need to be built and develop so it’s just when you think about it more like an infrastructure project instead of an open space project I think it makes a lot more sense why

It’s so expensive and how people get up and down there will be accessed parks like the one I mentioned that’s just to the west of us here there will also be accessed ramps in the right of way so they’re about half and half parks and ramps in the right of way so we’re

Taking advantage of some of the existing parks that are located along bloomingdale in the neighborhoods and changing them somewhat to be able to accommodate a ramp to get to the top and then in other places where there is no land this is a very dense built out area where

There will be access ramps in the street to allow people to access the time and what about the trail itself what will it look like it’s going to be so it’s 30 feet at the top so there isn’t a whole lot of space for concessions or any sort of programming

Or activities on the top we will do some of that but the top will be a ten-foot wide concrete path with 22 foot shoulders on either side so the total path itself will be 14 feet okay and so then if it’s 30 feet wide the remaining 16 people be landscaping benches there

Will be drinking fountains on the top in some places it does get wider and those are the places where the landscape can be more diverse and more interesting and where there might be other opportunities but for the most part the top is really meant for walking and biking and running

As you’ve mentioned and then there will be places where people can sit and relax and have a picnic in a little grove and is there also a public art component there will be a public art component so it’s not fully developed yet but we do know that there will be four

Levels of art or four phases of art let’s say there’s a lead artist on the design team her name is Frances Whitehead and so she’s the the embedded artist or lead artist on the team and so she’s been working with the design team to make sure that as decisions are made

The arts are considered and she’s really brought a lot to the team in terms of how they look at the project from the larger scale so she’s involved in the design we’re also looking at commissioning artist to do work and that will probably come sooner than some of

The other artwork because we want to make sure that the bigger pieces that are more complex are incorporated into the design and engineering drawings that will be done by the end of the year and then the other artwork that we plan on doing are more of a open call for

Artists and an RFP process where any artist could recommend something and then of course as funding becomes available if this can happen and then of course programming whether there are events are performances or other sort of classes along the trail and in the access parks and what’s the most

Exciting part of this project for you well for me I think the most exciting thing is the role that the trust for public land is playing so I’ve only been with the trust for public land a year and it’s been amazing to me to see how integrated that we are

As a private partner into the whole process so we are the one entity that looks at everything about the project whether it’s related to design fundraising the arts community interaction working with the alderman and other city officials and so for me it’s allowed me to use all of my skills

As a planner and it’s also forced me to push some of my skills and learn new things so it’s just been a great learning experience and it’s you know I think of it as the most exciting project going on Chicago’s it’s just a thrill to

Be a part of it great well thanks so much for taking the time to talk with us for more information about the project to see its history maps photos plans go to bloomingdale trail org and you can come see it for yourself in April at the 2013 national planning conference which

Will be here in Chicago the bloomingdale trail is one of dozens of mobile workshops that take planners out to the local projects to see the planning lessons behind them for more on the conference go to planning org slash conference
