detailed initiatives typically require multi-year investments, involve a variety of community stakeholders, and impact many, if not all, of the Village's residents.
The Village of Skokie Planning and Engineering Divisions along with a consultant team lead by Schreiber/Anderson Associates and Gewalt Hamilton Associates, Inc. completed the Village's first comprehensive bike plan.
The Comprehensive Plan is a document designed to guide Village leaders in making decisions about the future development of the community. It deals with things like housing, transportation, public services, and the use of land.
Dempster Station Area Plan
The Village of Skokie has partnered with the Regional Transportation Authority and an OKW Architects-led team to prepare the Dempster-Skokie Station Area Plan to create a circulation, land use, parking, and development vision for the area’s future.
Because Skokie is a very diverse community, creating smaller plans around neighborhoods makes it easier to focus on the specific needs and interests of local residents and businesses.
Skokie Swift / Yellow Line Extension
The Village is committed to expanding and improving the accessibility of the Yellow Line for residents, workers, shoppers and visitors through the addition of a new station facility downtown as well as an extension of the existing rail line to the Old Orchard area.
Skokie Valley Trail
The Village of Skokie was awarded a grant through the Model Communities Grant Program to prepare plans for the Skokie Valley Trail to be located along the ComEd right-of-way from Oakton Street south to the Village of Lincolnwood limits.
