A Lifestyle Corridor Plan for Antioch
Located in northern Lake County between Chicago and Milwaukee, the Village of Antioch has grown from an area that produced lumber in the 1830s to a community with a robust business and residential core and a high quality of life for residents, businesses, and visitors.
Building on these valuable community assets, CMAP's Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program is now helping the Village plan for a lifestyle corridor – a bike and pedestrian greenway and trail system connecting various destinations in and around Antioch. The plan will complement the community's long-term physical, socioeconomic, and cultural goals to better connect with the Chain O' Lakes and the Des Plaines River while coordinating with Lake County's regional planning objectives. Once complete, the Antioch lifestyle corridor plan will put forth policies to help the Village and its residents support the development of a lifestyle corridor. The plan will address a range of topics including but not limited to land use, open space, image and identity, and pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure.
The planning process will include three phases. The first phase will involve a thorough analysis of the existing conditions within the community using information gathered through one-on-one stakeholder interviews, steering committee meetings, the public kick-off meeting, review of previous studies, and collection of maps and data. Phase two will focus on creating strategies for Antioch's lifestyle corridor plan based on findings from the phase one analysis and public workshop. The final phase will combine efforts from previous phases to create the Lifestyle Corridor Plan document containing policies, programs, and action steps intended to help the community achieve the future vision.
