Parking Strategies for Berwyn
Update: Share your ideas on how we should improve parking in the Depot District by taking an on-line survey (click here).
The City of Berwyn is known for its diverse and mature community, its rich housing stock, and its proximity to downtown Chicago. Berwyn residents enjoy their connectivity to the region through I-55, I-294, and three commuter rail stations along the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Metra rail line. Access to transit, health institutions, and a mix of shops, housing and restaurants makes the downtown "Depot District" a center of attraction. Since the October 2012 adoption of its Berwyn Comprehensive Plan, the City has undertaken initiatives to revitalize commercial centers, install bike signage to promote safe biking, and revise its zoning ordinance. Now, the City is working toward another major comprehensive plan recommendation to create innovative parking strategies.
The public will have several opportunities to participate in the planning process. The City of Berwyn, in partnership with the BDC and CMAP, will embark on a series of outreach meetings with City leadership, business representatives, and the community to solicit and incorporate local input to the planning process. We invite your participation at the following upcoming events.
