The project's first public meeting will be Tuesday, February 7th at 6:30 at Village Hall.
The Village of Buffalo Grove is holding the first public meeting for the Lake Cook Corridor Market Study and Plan. The project, which was kicked off in late 2016, is exploring how the Village can best reposition the Corridor to optimize growth potential. It will examine Corridor development scenarios aimed at improving the Village’s identity and vitality, in addition to economic and fiscal sustainability.
The consulting team is led by Hellmuth, Obata, and Kassabaum (HOK), who will facilitate the meeting. The team will present the Corridor’s attributes, explain the study’s goals, and invite the public’s feedback. Project Leader, Domenic Salpietra of HOK stated, “This is a key meeting to introduce the public to the project and gather community input.” Buffalo Grove Village President Beverly Sussman encourages all residents, business owners and other interested parties to participate in this process. “This is a plan that will ultimately benefit our entire community, and input from everyone is essential to achieve the best possible outcome.”
The Lake Cook Corridor is an important corridor to Buffalo Grove and the region. It encompasses more than 472 acres of land and includes over one million square feet of commercial /office space, residential dwellings, and the municipal campus and golf course. The Corridor also serves as a gateway to the Village as it connects to the regional network of expressways, highways, and other major roads. More than 40,000 vehicles travel on Lake Cook Road every day, making it one of the most utilized and visible roads in the region.
The Lake Cook Corridor Market Study and Plan is expected to be completed by the end of 2017, and will implement a key action step from the Village’s approved 2016 Economic Development Strategic Plan. The first public meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. at the Buffalo Grove Village Hall, 50 Raupp Boulevard in Buffalo Grove. All residents, business owners, property owners, community leaders, and other stakeholders are invited to participate.
