These suburbs should have all been doing this for ages
I know a couple people who live out there. Elmhurst is in a really sweet spot being less than a 30 minute ride into OTC at rush coupled with a good schools and a decent downtown.

This project was approved by the Village Board last night. It will be great for downtown Arlington Heights.

Awesome! It'll be great to see that empty field finally get developed. Slowly but surely these suburban TOD sites are filling in. The whole region benefits the stronger the Metra nodes become.

Agree.

For suburban downtowns, Arlington Heights is definitely one of the better ones.

drove by downtown Skokie today no workers on site, but a tower crane base is installed with some minor electrical panels so probably waiting on either financing or a permit

The only thing sad about the strong Metra nodes is that Chicago has had a worse attitude about maximizing TOD developments near our 'L' stations, let alone next to our Metra stations. Which is why I really hope Lightfoot manages to destroy Aldermanic perogative. or, at the very least can get them to let go of control for development near transit stations.

... why not just actually develop a comprehensive land use plan that is effectuated by a comprehensive review and update of the zoning map, to make zoning changes the exception rather than the norm for all development? Or, for example, pass/enforce state laws that condition local zoning powers on adherence to a comprehensive plan that specifically addresses certain targets such as total population, housing mix, growth rate, etc.? Such an effort would presumably result in higher-density mixed-use zoning around major transit nodes.

Trading the power now vested in one small group of individuals to another small group of individuals is unlikely to solve the problem without a whole wide range of other unanticipated consequences.

Great Evanston shots Harry! Anyone who is interested in the history of the Women's Christian Temperance Union and or Evanstom history should pop over to see the Willard house (built in 1865) next time you find yourself in downtown Etown. Took this last year -

Thank you for the update harryc! It is much appreciated. I love how Albion turned out.

Do you happen to know what is going on with that Skokie project?
