New Village Center Zoning District -
Hanover Park holds an unprecedented opportunity to build a modern, high density downtown surrounding our Metra Train Station. The Village has a strong track record of responding to market changes by updating our guiding documents and a new zoning district is needed to implement the vision for a a village center with civic space, and new retail, housing, and mixed-use construction.
The Village has received a $35,000 grant from the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) and the Regional Transportation Agency (RTA) to hire a consultant who will work under Village guidance. More information is on the RTA site.
Alcohol sales in larger gas station convenience stores -
