Notice of Public Meeting February 9, 2008 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
at Berwyn Police Station Community Room
6401 West 31st St. Berwyn, IL
The Berwyn Development Corporation (BDC), in conjunction with the Town Builder Studios Team, based in Riverside, IL will be hosting a public visioning workshop to discuss the Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) study for the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) and Metra rail corridor (including the Depot District).
This workshop aims to inform the public on the various aspects of the Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) study. The City of Berwyn, IL and the Berwyn Development Corporation have hired the Town Builder Studios Team to complete the TOD study for an area that includes the South Berwyn Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district, also known as the Depot District. The meeting will include a presentation of data
gathered to date, interactive discussions to solicit goals for the Study Area, and a visual preference survey (VPS).
The VPS is a focused tool for learning and recording the public’s “likes” and “dislikes” regarding the community’s preferred aesthetic and visual character. The workshop will include illustrated/pictorial survey that allows participants to evaluate and quantify preferences regarding physical amenities, architectural
character, building scale and massing, parking, streetscape and alley improvements, lighting, signage,landscape, and new construction standards and styles. The participants will be encouraged to record their preferred aesthetic for existing and proposed developments including commercial, residential, open space,
transit, and streetscape, which help guide the development of concept development plans for the area in the coming months.
Any questions or comments should be directed to Sara Bratcher at the Berwyn Development Corporation:
