This project created a transit-oriented development plan for the Metra station area located in the Village's downtown. The Village plans to provide recommendations to improve walkability and improve streetscaping, redevelop vacant and underutilized land, promote the Village as a tourist destination and encourage the use of Metra.
|Project Type(s):||Transit-Oriented Development Plan|
|Grantee:||Village of Fox Lake|
|Current Activities:||The Village Board formally adopted the Plan on August 13, 2013. To continue support of the Village's TOD efforts, the RTA selected the Village as part of the 2014 Community Planning Program of Projects for a Developer Discussion Panel. The Panel convened on February 10, 2015 and a summary of this discussion can be found on the Fox Lake Developer Discussion Panel RTAMS page.|
In September of 2017 the Village Board designated the Fox Lake station area as a Business District, where an additional 1% sales tax will be applied to generate revenue for promoting redevelopment and constructing public infrastructure.
