Greetings Winnetka Downtown Plan followers!
Thanks to everyone who participated in the Downtown Master Plan and Urban Design Quick Poll, we learned that improved places to stroll, gather and dine in Downtown were top priorities. In September 2017, the Village hired Teska Associates, the consultant that led the Downtown Master Plan, to work with the community to create a Streetscape and Signage Plan focused on the Green Bay Road Corridor and Elm Business District.
In addition to this website serving as a resource for the Downtown Master Plan, moving forward, all announcements and materials related to the Streetscape and Signage Plan will also be posted here.
