Milwaukee District West Line Transit-Friendly Development Study
The Metra-Milwaukee District West Line planning study has three main purposes: to increase the visibility of the five Metra Stations in the Galewood and Monteclare communities, to make recommendations for appropriate private development around each station, and to look for ways to provide information about the stations at nearby Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus shelters.
By being transit-friendly, the study is intended to produce strategies that will boost ridership along the Metra route. It will build on the recommendations of the 2010 Transit-Friendly Development Guide, which serves as a guide to future growth by assigning a typology to every commuter station on the CTA rail system.
On April 6, 2010, a community planning meeting was held at the Grand-Central (25th) Police District Headquarters. A presentation from the event can be downloaded here.
