RTA logo Richton Park Station Area Planning Study

Study Description

This project explored mixed-use redevelopment opportunities by conducting a preliminary market analysis and survey of stakeholder perceptions. Design guidelines, implementation strategies and a preferred concept plan were developed.

Program:Community Planning
Program Year:2002
Project Type(s):Transit-Oriented Development Plan
Grantee:Village of Richton Park
Current Activities:This project was completed in November 2004. The Village was chosen as part of the 2013 RTA Community Planning Program to participate in a RTA/ULI Developer Discussion Panel to solicit guidance and advice from the development community on ways to attract TOD investment. This panel convened on December 13, 2013 and a summary of this discussion can be found in the Study Documents.

In early 2015 the RTA applied for CMAQ funds on behalf of the Village, via the RTA's Access to Transit Improvement Program, for pedestrian improvements in the Metra station area. The project was chosen for CMAQ funding in fall of 2015 as part of the RTA's combined application.
