A Context Sensitive Solutions Project

3rd Public Meeting (Open House)

The study’s third public meeting was held on September 15, 2011. Its purpose was to update the public on the status of the study and to provide an opportunity for discussion between the IDOT Study Team, the Community Advisory Group (CAG), and interested members of the community. The focus of the meeting was the six corridor locations recommended to be carried forward for further analysis. Also presented was information about the process used to select those six corridors.

The meeting took place between 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. and was held using an informal, open house format. Approximately 600 individuals attended the meeting.

Attendees were invited to view a continually-running audio-visual presentation, which provided a brief review of the study status, and then to study the various maps and other graphics that were on display. Attendees were encouraged to ask questions and discuss the project with the IDOT Study Team and CAG representatives who were present at the meeting, and to submit, in writing, any comments they might have about the study findings or process.

On display were: informational graphics about the study process, maps and aerial photos showing the corridors being considered, and charts showing the screening data used to help select the corridors recommended for further study.
