RTA logo Robbins TOD Plan Update

Study Description

As part of a proposed stormwater solution to remove approximately 140 acres from the floodplain the Village would like to study the area for potential development. The Village envisions a mixed-use neighborhood with a stormwater park to the north. Proximity to the Metra station will serve as a major draw to attract new residents, creating demand for greater retail options and other developments in the area. This project is being led by CMAP in partnership with the RTA. The RTA would contribute staff time as well as funding to complete the TOD market assessment.
