Near West Side Plan

    Near West Side Plan cover

     


    The Near West Side Plan covers an 88-block area bounded by the Kennedy and Eisenhower expressways, Lake Street and Ashland Avenue.

    The plan addresses ramifications of West Loop growth in recent years, particularly its impact on conflicting land uses, streetscape deterioration, traffic congestion and parking issues.

    The planning process involved an assessment of physical conditions and transportation routes, meetings with government agencies and private business and property owners, and workshops to discuss findings and implementation strategies.
