Oak Park Station Timeline May Disrupt Holiday Parking

Marion Street shopping

The Village-owned lots between Lake and North Blvd and behind Marion St comprise the “Colt Site,” soon to be developed into “Oak Park Station”

Oak Park Station construction (aka the Colt site) is about to get underway. The construction site comprises the Village-owned parking lots between North Blvd Metra station and Lake St. Currently, the project is set to start mid-December, thus closing the lots during the holiday shopping season. If this is a concern for your business, go to the Village Board meeting this Monday 11.16 and let the trustees know. The project is in the hands of the developers and the financiers right now – but the trustees might be able to influence the timeline if you let them know your concerns.

If you are interested in making a statement, you may sign up to do so at the meeting at Village Hall. You will be making “non-agenda public comment” as this is not part of the regular agenda.  Click here to see the full meeting agenda, which begins at 7:30pm.
