What is the Local Community Vision?

The Chicago region is an ever evolving environment. Undeveloped areas are seeing new investment, and built areas are being redefined through infill development and revitalization efforts. Though local visions vary from one community to another, many address a series of development characteristics that directly or indirectly accommodate and support transit.

  1. Snapshot of existing conditions and characteristics

  2. Articulation of realistic expectations

  3. Description of a desired outcome or vision

  4. Goals and objectives to attain the vision

  5. Area- or topic-specific recommendations

  6. Action program to attain the vision over time
