Coordinated and funded through the Regional Transportation Authority, The Lakota Group
led a team consisting of Goodman Williams Group, Gewalt Hamilton Associates, and
sparc, inc. to develop a Downtown Implementation Plan for Mount Prospect. The project
encourages communities to create a transit-oriented development (TOD) plans to support
and enhance existing and future transit, in addition to improving communities served by
transit. The program allowed Mount Prospect to leverage its high commuter ridership of
the Metra system to create a long-range vision for an improved downtown. The final plan
addresses redevelopment, land use, public realm improvements, transportation enhancements, market recommendations, and a marketing strategy.
