In 2022, the Village of La Grange hired Sam Schwartz Consulting to perform a comprehensive parking study to understand the nature of current and future demand for parking throughout the central business district and West End, and to provide recommendations for managing the Village’s varied parking needs. The recommendations within the report are informed by the technical expertise of Sam Schwartz Consulting and industry best practices, as well as broad public input received throughout the planning process. Over 1,000 residents, visitors, business owners, and employees participated in a variety of remote and in-person public engagement opportunities.
The final report was presented to the Village Board on February 27, 2023. Recommendations within the report will be incorporated into future budget proposals and policy deliberations.
