Five new harbors in Chicago’s future?

CHICAGO - The Chicago Park District is expecting an increase of up to 50 percent in demand for boat slips over the next 20 years, and therefore may add five new harbors, according to an article Wednesday in the Chicago Journal.

The Park District commissioned consultancy JJR LLC to conduct an ongoing study to help it predict future use of Chicago's nine harbors, the publication reported. The report suggests boat slip demand will increase, particularly among women and minority groups, according to the journal.

Sites being considered include Navy Pier, Jackson Harbor, 31st and 87th Streets, and the Loyola University area, and a final decision will be made in January, reported the Chicago Journal.
