A series of walking tours will allow the public to ask questions about the village's planning process for a new streetscape design of the Lake Street corridor.
The tour will give interested guests a chance to review and discuss existing conditions and opportunities for improvements aimed at unifying the Downtown Oak Park, Pleasant and Avenue business districts.
The tours will be held on Thursday, Oct. 4 at 5 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 6 and Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 9 a.m., and Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 5 p.m. Those interested in joining can RSVP by calling 312-467-5445. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Elements of the streetscape proposal include upgraded sidewalks and roads, landscaping elements, benches, streetlights and other amenities to create a more cohesive downtown.
