North York Street Corridor Plan
North York Street is one of Elmhurst’s most important arterial roadways and runs north-south from the City’s northern border to its southern border. It links the northern neighborhoods to Downtown Elmhurst and provides connections to I-290. The study area for the North York Street Corridor Plan is considered the City’s northern gateway into the community and the Downtown, and is the first impression of Elmhurst that visitors encounter when entering from the I-290 interchange. The North York Street Corridor Plan outlines the City’s vision and strategies for improvement, redevelopment, beautification, and overall revitalization of the Corridor.
The North York Street Corridor Plan, prepared by Houseal Lavigne Associates, is the product of substantial community input and participation from City residents, elected and appointed officials, City staff, and representatives from the local business community. The Plan establishes a foundation for future decision-making and provides specific recommendations regarding land use and development, design/development guidelines, transportation and access, and streetscape and beautification along the North York Street Corridor.
