Design matters. Commercial streets that have a distinctive character and appeal to shoppers and diners are typically more successful. The LPCC developed the Lincoln Park Guide to Good Storefront Design as a resource for current and aspiring business and property owners to ensure that good design is part of their retail storefront. This guide provides you with the general City of Chicago requirements for signs, awnings, window displays and lighting. It also provides specific recommendations about what good design looks like in the context of Lincoln Park, and some basic guidelines to follow that should help your business thrive in the neighborhood.
