Kenilworth Green Bay Corridor Plan

Kenilworth Green Bay Corridor Plan


Kenilworth is a very desirable and lovely community - elegant homes, the lake shore, good Kenilworth Green Bay Corridor Plantransportation, a safe environment, and an excellent school.  These are the things that draw buyers to Kenilworth real estate.  However, Kenilworth does lack one tiny thing -  and that is a downtown area.  

There are a few stores and businesses on Park Avenue and dotting Green Bay Road between Winnetka and Kenilworth avenues.  Truthfully, many residents like it that way because it keeps Kenilworth quieter and less congested..  But from a financial standpoint, the Village of  Kenilworth recognizes the need for both a larger tax base and and more aesthetic thoroughfare through its town.  

Currently the Village is conducting a study which will continue for the duration of the planning process and has developed a website called Village of Kenilworth Green Bay Road Corridor Plan.  The website is interactive and its designers are hoping to increase  public participation by providing an open forum where residents can input their opinions and views about streetscape design, pedestrian and bike traffic, and car traffic patterns.  

There is a community mapping tool, a questionnaire, and slideshows to help visualize physical design elements. In addition to the website, the Village is planning three Community Workshops and Meetingswhere residents can drop by during the workshop hours and express their desires and aspirations for the corridor.  

I lived in Kenilworth for 18 years and always wondered if that section would ever be upgraded - now I'm in Winnetka but am as excited to see the changes as if I still lived there.

Margaret, this is a great idea to involve the community with planning the Kenilworth Green Bay Corridor.
