Positioned on the northern border of Chicago, Lincolnwood is a diverse community surrounded by vibrant ethnic neighborhoods. More than half of its approximately 12,000 residents speak a language other than English at home. Its population is mostly upper-middle-class and aging, and many residents hope to age in place as they have lived in Lincolnwood for decades.
The Village’s vision for the corridor is a dynamic, safe, and attractive commercial district that provides various goods and services that complement the residential neighborhood immediately to the north. A vibrant commercial district and enhanced streetscape, the Village hopes, will also help establish an attractive gateway into the Village. Recognizing the importance of collaboration, the Village of Lincolnwood partnered with the City of Chicago to jointly sponsor this TAP. By coordinating efforts across jurisdictional lines the Village hopes to create a cohesive identity for the area.
