In partnership with the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD), the Village will be reconstructing several parking lots in the Central Business District with permeable pavers. The parking lots included in the project are Parking Lot 8 (Madison and Harris Avenues) and the surface parking lot on Harris Avenue (adjacent to the parking structure.) In addition to improving the driving surface, this project is an environmental initiative to reduce the discharge of storm water to the Village’s sewer system. We anticipate that the parking lot improvements will occur during the summer.
This project will be coordinated with the downtown signature events this summer to reduce impacts as much as possible.
