The Independent Monitoring Team is dedicated to collaboration and engagement with members of the Chicago community. Our team will have continuous and regular dialogue with the community to gather their questions, concerns, and overall feedback. Members of the community are invited to submit feedback, ask questions, and attend our Independent Monitoring Team community meetings. We will review all comments that we receive from contacts and feedback forms throughout the monitoring process.
