RTA logo Brookfield TOD Zoning Update

Study Description

This project assisted the Village with updating the zoning regulations around their three Metra stations focusing primarily on the downtown area. The update reflects land use policies, goals and objectives found in the adopted 2020 Master Plan. The revised zoning code uses the latest form-based methods and theories of development regulation to assist the Village in continuing to transform the environment surrounding the downtown Metra station into a model transit-oriented development.

Program:Community Planning
Program Year:2015
Project Type(s):TOD Zoning Code Update
Grantee:Village of Brookfield
Current Activities:In January 2017 the Village Board of Trustees adopted the revised regulations into the Village zoning code ordinance and revised the Village zoning map accordingly. Since then developers have been attracted to the area as a place to build new multifamily development because of the revised zoning code. Due to the new Station Area Zoning code developers are now able to build new multi-unit developments near transit by right, without having to get approvals from the Planning and Zoning Commission or the village board. Such developments have been built in the 8900 block of Fairview Avenue and Grant Avenue.
