Promontory Point Conservancy
To protect and preserve
Promontory Point is again in danger: Save the Point Again!
We demand the City, Chicago Park District and US Army Corps of Engineers:
revive the 2006 Obama planning process
repair and preserve the historic limestone revetment
guarantee full community participation
CDOT, CPD, USACE: Don’t restart the clock! Let’s pick up right where we left off!

Restore Promontory Point: Limestone Rocks!
Our plan for rehabilitation and repair includes:
maximum historic limestone
minimum concrete and disruption
safe and generous access (ADA compliance) for all to both the revetment and the water
We advocate a feasible, functional preservation approach, not demolition and reconstruction
Get In Touch
We do monthly clean-ups at the Point.
Here are the future dates:
All Sundays, at 10:30am. We meet inside the tunnel at the National Register plaque. Everyone gets an orange, Save the Point Again! work shirt.
