The RTA is assisting the Village of Maywood to amend the Village’s Zoning Code in the downtown area as recommended in the Maywood TOD Plan Update, completed through the RTA’s Community Planning program in 2020. Code updates will foster the type of development envisioned in the plan, address current parking in downtown Maywood, and respond to the historic nature of the area. The project’s focus area includes Lake Street and 5th Avenue.
This project began in 2023 with a series of community engagement events to gather input from the public on potential amendments. These included stakeholder interviews, a public open house, and an elected/appointed officials roundtable discussion with the Maywood Planning Commission/Zoning Board of Appeals. The project team is currently developing initial recommendations for Village staff review and comment.
