ApplicantProject TitleProject Description
 City of Chicago Jefferson Park TOD Plan This project will assist the City of Chicago in creating a comprehensive, transit-oriented development plan for the Jefferson Park neighborhood in the vicinity of the Jefferson Park Transit Center on the Northwest Side of the City.  This plan will develop recommendations for transit access improvements and transit-supportive land uses that will complement the planned renovation of the Jefferson Park Transit Center, which includes CTA Rail and Bus, Metra Rail and Pace Bus service.
City of Des Plaines TOD Developer Discussion Panel This project will assist the City with a developer panel to provide advice, guidance and feedback on the City’s plans and goals to attract TOD investment on key redevelopment parcels throughout the Des Plaines Metra Station TOD area.
CTA 79th Street and Chicago Avenue Corridors Bus Slow Zone Improvement Initiative This project will develop a plan to improve the speed and reliability of CTA bus service on a 10-mile section of 79th Street and a 7.9-mile section of Chicago Avenue. Analysis will be conducted to identify slow zones along the corridor and identify solutions to improve the speed of service in those zones. The project will include analysis, concept designs, and an implementation plan for the CTA and partner agencies.
DuPage County Division of Transportation  Last Mile Transit Planning Study This project will assist DuPage County in developing options to improve transit connections to major employment centers in the County, with a focus on first and last mile transportation gaps with existing transit services.  The ultimate goal of the project is to improve commuting options and access to jobs for those commuting to and within the County.
Pace Harlem Avenue Transit Amenities Enhancement Project This project will include a transit access and land use study that recommends ways to improve transit accessibility while identifying and promoting potential land uses that compliment transit service along the 10 mile stretch of Harlem Avenue, from Lake Street in Oak Park to 63rd Street in Argo. This project will continue the momentum of the previously completed Southwest Conference of Mayors sponsored Harlem Avenue Corridor Project (from 63rd Street to I-80), which has experienced successful implementation efforts.  The project area is slated for future Pulse Arterial Rapid Transit (ART) service.
Village of Calumet Park TOD Developer Discussion Panel  This project will assist the Village with a developer panel to review the development potential of the Village’s recently acquired six-acre parcel of land that lies adjacent to the Ashland Avenue Station on the Metra Electric line. The panel will make recommendations for prospective development on the parcel that will be transit-oriented and that could be a catalyst for future redevelopment.
Village of Morton Grove TOD Zoning Update and Developer Discussion Panel This project will assist the Village with the creation of new (or revised) TOD area zoning regulations to encourage, attract and allow TOD investment.  The current zoning code does not reflect current market demands or development patterns nor does it always allow the types of development the Village envisions in the Metra station TOD area.  A developer panel will also be held to provide advice, guidance and feedback on the Village’s plans and goals to attract TOD investment on key redevelopment parcels throughout the Metra station area.
Village of Olympia Fields TOD Zoning Update

This project involves developing specific zoning regulations and guidelines to reflect and implement the Village’s recently-adopted Town Center Plan. This plan outlines strategies for the Village to attract and encourage TOD investment near the 203rd Street Metra station. Form-based regulations will be explored.
