Park Ridge Streetscape Community Workshop
The City of Park Ridge has been engaged in a process to plan and design the remaining Uptown streetscapes, including Northwest Highway, Prospect, Summit, Touhy and Washington Avenues. As part of this process, the City has commissioned a team of consultants including Spaceco(civil engineering),The Lakota Group(urban design and landscape architecture) and Christopher B. Burke Engineering (lighting design and engineering),to assist in designing, budgeting and engineering these improvements.
To date, the consultant team has been gathering data, conducting inventories of physical conditions throughout Uptown and developing preliminary streetscape concepts and ideas.
The next steps in the planning and design process are two Community Workshops on November 28 at 5:30pm and December 8 at 8:00am, to be held in Council Chambers, City Hall, 505 Butler Place. The consulting team will review area issues and opportunities, as well as present concepts and ideas for future streetscape improvements.
All community residents, leaders and business/property owners are invited and encouraged to participate. Information gathered from the workshops will be considered for incorporation into conceptual streetscape designs.
Please join your neighbors, bring your ideas and help us look to the future of Uptown Park Ridge.
