This project assisted the Village in the creation of a TOD Plan for the area surrounding the Worth Metra station, as recommended by the CMAP Planning Priorities report completed for the Village. The Plan provides a focus on residential and commercial redevelopment near the Metra station along Depot Street, 111th Street and Harlem Avenue. The Plan recommendations create a vision for a Village in developing a downtown area. The desire is to facilitate and sustain future development that would expand opportunities for the residents and business owners, while also increasing ridership for Metra and Pace commuters.
