Berwyn Transit-Oriented Master Plan
This project produced a transit-oriented development plan for the three Berwyn Metra station areas along the Metra BNSF rail corridor between Harlem Avenue and Ridgeland Avenue: LaVergne, Berwyn and Harlem Ave.
Transit-Oriented Development Plan
City of Berwyn
The final plan was adopted by the City Council in November 2008. In the same year the City constructed a shared parking deck on Grove Avenue for their downtown using a combination of local and federal funds. They are also currently in talks with developers to develop key pieces of property within their TOD area.
In late November 2011, it was announced that the West Cook County Housing Collaborative received a nearly $3 million grant for its transit-oriented development strategy to update comprehensive plans and to create a sustainable transit-oriented development fund for the communities of Bellwood, Berwyn, Forest Park, Maywood and Oak Park. On December 21, 2012 the City released an RFP for a site on Stanley Avenue adjacent to the Berwyn Metra station to solicit proposals for multifamily senior rental development. The Collaborative is currently evaluating proposals.
