View Concept Plans and Provide Feedback at the Town Centre Open House
February 25, 2014 - In 2013 residents provided input at a public workshop and through website feedback on how Woodridge's Town Centre should be used by the community. Now, the consultant hired by the Village and the Park District has taken the community's input and created three alternative options for the future use of the property located near Woodridge Drive and Center Drive.
The public is invited to the Town Centre Open House on Monday, March 10th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Edgewood School, 7900 Woodridge Drive. The public Open House will provide residents the opportunity to view and comment on three alternative Town Centre concept plans. There will also be a short presentation at 7:00 pm to summarize the key recommenda-tions for each alternative. Participants are encouraged to stop by anytime between 6:30 and 8:30 pm to view the plans and provide input. To RSVP for the Open House, please contact Jennifer Horn at (630) 719-4710 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
ABOUT THE TOWN CENTRE MASTER PLAN
The Village of Woodridge and Woodridge Park District have been working with a consultant to develop a Town Centre Master Plan that includes a community supported vision that further strengthens the Town Centre as a community focal point. The Town Centre area is located near Woodridge and Center Drives and includes the following existing facilities: Village Hall, Woodridge Library, Village Police/Public Works facility, Park District Community Center, U.S. Post Office, Jefferson Junior High School, Hawthorne Hill Woods, Memorial Park, Lake Carleton, Lake Harriet and 44 acres of open space jointly owned by the Village and Park District.
The feedback and suggestions gathered from the March 10th Open House will be used to formalize the alternatives into a preferred Town Centre Master Plan that will be presented to the Woodridge Plan Commission, Village Board and Park District Board in April.
