Survey to gather public input for downtown streetscape design

Oak Parkers are invited to take an online survey as part of the planning process to develop a new streetscape design for Lake Street between Harlem and Euclid avenues. The purpose of the study, officials say, is to create a plan for unifying the downtown business districts, beautifying the corridor, encouraging increased activity and shopping, and improving walkability. Survey results will help the Village better understand the values, thoughts and desires of the community related to the Lake Street corridor. Just click here to take the brief survey.
