Officials from Chicago’s Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) and Cary, Illinois, late last month began creating a strategic plan to encourage private investment near the city's Metra commuter-rail station. 

The plan will identify strategies for future transit-oriented land uses and infrastructure improvements near the station in downtown Cary.

The RTA is supporting the project through its Community Planning program, which offers technical assistance and funding to local governments and intergovernmental organizations to address local planning needs that address public transportation and land use.

“We are happy to work with the Village of Cary on a plan that will lead to more transit access for its residents, more economic development for the community, and more transportation options for all,” said RTA Executive Director Leanne Redden in a press release.

The planning process is expected to be completed in summer 2021.
