The Central Council of Mayors is working with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning to develop a Transportation Resilience Plan that would aim to reduce the flooding of streets, sidewalks, and train and bus routes in our area and surrounding communities. The planning process includes:
- Assessing the vulnerability of the transportation system to heavy rainfall and flooding;
- Identifying where flooding and stormwater issues coincide with planned transportation improvements
- Outlining capital project types, policy solutions, and areas requiring further study; and
- Informing stormwater and transportation investment decisions made by Central Council communities (including La Grange) as well as other stormwater and transportation agencies.
Public input is crucial in developing this plan. Click here (LINK) to learn more about the project and take a survey on how flooding affects you.
