Vision Clark Street Corridor PlanRogers Park, IL
The Lakota Group was engaged by Rogers Park Business Alliance to create a corridor plan for Clark Street in the heart of the Rogers Park neighborhood. Significant bilingual outreach to residents and business owners was performed to ensure the plan reflected the vision of the overall community. Over 350 people attended the first two community meetings and 500 online and in-person surveys were completed. The final Corridor Master Plan synthesized all of the feedback received throughout the plan and graphically illustrates the issues and opportunities of the corridor and the vision for its future. Concepts outlined in the plan include economic development strategies, design, signage and wayfinding improvements, multi-modal transportation improvements and the enhancement and preservation of neighborhood character and history. An extensive implementation action plan was included to guide the community in achieving this vision.
