When It Comes to Planning, Communities Incorporate Their Own Vision


Land use and transportation planning go hand-in-hand. Population and location not only influence travel patterns, but the access points can guide and influence land use and balanced development. By developing a land use plan around the Illiana Corridor, each community can realize their own vision for how they plan their future - whether they want the size and character to stay the same or if they want to grow and change. The Illiana Team is not creating a vision for the communities along the Corridor, instead, they're providing an opportunity for local municipalities to work with IDOT and INDOT on incorporating transportation into their own vision and future plans.


With communities in mind, the Illiana Team is encouraging a vision for the Corridor that includes:

• Economic Development

• Protecting and Promoting Environmental Assets

• Addressing Local and Regional Traffic Issues

• Committing to Local and Regional Planning

• Supporting Individual Visions for Each Community
