Access To The Community
Getting to Champaign-Urbana couldn’t be easier. We have three interstates that bypass in Champaign-Urbana that also take you to major metro areas in Chicago, St. Louis, and Indianapolis. The University of Illinois Willard Airport makes flying a breeze, with daily flights to Chicago O’Hare, Dallas/Ft. Worth, and Charlotte, and we promise you won’t have to stand in long security lines. With our communities built along the railroad, Amtrak will get you in and out of the community with ease with a stop in the heart of downtown Champaign. Head up to Chicago for the day, or go spend a weekend in New Orleans and travel all by rail.
ACCESS TO WORKSPACE
Did the pandemic make you a remote worker? Well we’ve got a spot waiting for you in our many co-working spaces. Whether you head to Lodgic Everyday Community decorated from top to bottom in local art, or you find space in the co-working options in our downtowns, you’ll have a place to plug-in, connect with fellow independent workers, and enjoy a good cup of joe.
ACCESS TO LOCAL GOVERNMENT
When we say micro-urban, we mean that you have big city amenities with a small-town feel. This means you can feel like you’re a part of your community and have access to the leadership that works to make Champaign-Urbana a better place to live. You’ll often spot our mayors at the Farmer’s Market or dining al-fresco. You can take part in focus groups, take part in city governance, and have open channels with our elected officials to ensure your voice is heard.
