The Village of Morton Grove is an inner-ring suburb located northwest of the City of Chicago. The Village has two industrial areas which are home to several businesses. Building upon previous planning studies, market analyses, existing conditions, and community input, CMAP's Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program is helping Morton Grove to draft an Industrial Areas Subarea plan. This plan will examine the industrial areas' relationship with the regional industrial market and the surrounding land uses, as well as provide guidance for the area's future growth and prosperity.
The process includes three phases. The first phase includes an analysis of the area's existing conditions, as well as gathering initial public input regarding the issues and opportunities for the industrial area. The second phase consists of creating a shared vision and outlining specific goals and recommendations necessary to achieve the vision. The third phase is developing an implementation strategy that puts the goals and recommendations into action.
