RTA logo Villa Park Station Area Plan

Study Description

This Station area plan focused on transit-oriented development opportunities and improving multi-modal access to the Village's commuter rail station on the Metra Union Pacific West Line.

Program:Community Planning
Program Year:2005
Project Type(s):Transit-Oriented Development Plan
Grantee:Village of Villa Park
Current Activities:The study was completed in November 2006. In 2010, the Village was awarded $900,000 through the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP) for streetscape enhancements to Ardmore Avenue.

Additionally, the Village was chosen as part of the 2012 RTA Community Planning Program to update their zoning regulations in their TOD study area. New zoning districts were created through this project and the Village adopted the new regulations on July 8, 2013. The new TOD area zoning regulations can be found here. As a follow-up, the RTA worked with ULI to convene a panel of development experts to provide guidance and advice to the Village on ways to attract development in the TOD area. This discussion took place on November 19, 2013 and a summary report can be found in the Study Documents below.
