3.11 Update Regarding Milwaukee Avenue Corridor Plan – Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning Local Technical Assistance Grant Funding Application (Village of Lincolnshire)
Assistant Village Manager/Community & Economic Development (AVM/CED) Director Letendre provided an update regarding the Milwaukee Avenue Corridor Plan noting this week staff will submit the request for a local technical assistance grant to Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP). Staff requests Board support for the submittal.
Trustee McDonough asked if the Village of Buffalo Grove is not applying jointly with Lincolnshire. AVM/CED Director Letendre confirmed Buffalo Grove is not going to be jointly applying and has indicated to staff they have higher priority projects. Trustee McDonough asked if this would impact the cost to Lincolnshire. AVM/CED Director Letendre stated this will not impact the cost to Lincolnshire. Trustee McDonough asked if Lincolnshire is asking CMAP to give Lincolnshire a Grant. AVM/CED
Director Letendre confirmed Lincolnshire is asking CMAP to award us a Grant and planning assistance. Economic Development Coordinator Zozulya noted the only cost Lincolnshire would bear is the local match which is 20% if we are successful. Village Manager Burke noted staff thought there might be a higher rate of success in receiving the Grant if Buffalo Grove decided to participate as a collaborative application.
Trustee McDonough ask for a brief explanation regarding the project. AVM/CED Director Letendre stated the application is for planning assistance relative to Lincolnshire’s sense of place and what we would like to see on Milwaukee Ave. Village Manager Burke stated a planning document would be the product of this request; looking at the development along the corridor and the amenities but not at the width or widening of Milwaukee Avenue.
There was a consensus of the Board to move forward with the application.
