The Village of Lake Zurich continues to move toward its goal of building a stronger unified downtown where local businesses can thrive and residents can gather and live. After extensive public meetings and planning discussions over the past decade, the Village unveiled plans to bring new life to the downtown area.
In keeping with the master planning vision, the downtown redevelopment will:
Create an environment where new businesses flourish and existing businesses can grow and thrive
Make the downtown pedestrian friendly
Build a stronger, unified community identity and gathering place
Establish the downtown area as a community gathering place
Relocate Route 22 to alleviate traffic congestion
Capitalize on lakefront vistas
Encourage public facilities to remain or relocate downtown
Address parking with on-street and below-ground parking
Retain and improve existing parks
Replace dilapidated and obsolete buildings
Rebuild aging streets and sidewalks
Substantially increase property and sales tax revenues
