Chicago obtains RTA grant to draw up land-use plans for three CTA stations


Chicago's Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) recently awarded a $250,000 grant to the city of Chicago to develop land-use and transportation plans for three elevated station areas.

In conjunction with the Chicago Transit Authority, the city's Department of Planning and Development will determine ways to strengthen the relationship between land use and transportation, plan for neighborhood growth, and guide public and private investment near the Berwyn Red Line station, 43rd Street Green Line station, and future 18th or Cermak Green Line station.

The planning department will recommend land-use concepts, principles and strategies, and direct private developers, public agencies and community groups on ways to redevelop the areas.
