Elmwood, IL

Elmwood Park Commercial Corridor Revitalization Plan received funding from the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP) to restructure its downtown streetscape creating better access to the underutilizes Conti Circle by realigning streets for better sight lines of Elmwood Park’s Village Center. The mixed-use development in the center of Conti Circle and multi-use open space create a destination for visitors, commuters and locals. The revitalization replaces narrow sidewalk next to a busy four lane avenue to create an enjoyable shopping experience encouraging people to spend more money locally. The end result is an improved business and residential district with new public assets making Elmwood an attractive place to visit.
