Elmhurst Subarea Plans

City begins process for updated subarea plans 


Elmhurst, IL —The City of Elmhurst is excited to begin the process to update the Elmhurst Subarea Plans, and is looking for input from residents, community stakeholders, businesses and property owners, and other interested members of the community. Please visit the project website to learn more about the process and fill out online questionnaires.

WHAT ARE THE ELMHURST SUBAREA PLANS? The Elmhurst Subarea Plans will serve as updates to the subarea plans found in the City’s 2009 Comprehensive Plan. The Elmhurst Subarea Plans will include the following areas:

  • York & Vallette Business District
  • Lake Street Corridor
  • First Street & York Street Block Redevelopment
  • Yorkfield Area
  • North Avenue & Route 83

Although the subarea plans range in scale and level of detail, each subarea plan will include recommendations on land use and development; circulation, mobility, and parking; and public and private urban design elements.

SUBAREA VISIONING WORKSHOP To help ensure that Elmhurst continues to be a vibrant, competitive community, the City will be requesting comments and input on the Elmhurst Subarea Plans from residents, the business community, developers, and others who have a vested interest in the City’s future. As the project moves forward, everyone will be invited to attend and provide feedback as the City works with planning consultants at Houseal Lavigne Associates to develop policies and recommendations for the Elmhurst Subarea Plans. This visioning exercise will encourage stakeholders to address subarea components related to land use, development, access, mobility, and urban design. Be sure to check the City’s website or visit the Elmhurst Subarea Plans project website for details on the Subarea Visioning Workshop.

SUBAREA VISIONING WORKSHOP Information on the time, date, and location of the Subarea Visioning Workshop will be confirmed soon. Be sure to check the City’s website for more information soon!
