We want your ideas for the train station area
The Village recently kicked off a Train Station Area Redevelopment Planning project. The project builds on the 2006 Downtown Plan and is aimed at identifying opportunities to improve commuter access and development opportunities.

The planning process, which is anticipated to run through January 2011, will include additional opportunities for public input and review of the plan proposals. For more information about the project, please visit the Village’s website.
