Title:Eastgate Redevelopment: Village of Park Forest
Author(s):Jain, Saumya
Contributor(s):Greenlee, Andrew
neighborhood redevelopment
Geographic Coverage:Park Forest, Illinois
Abstract:Homes for a Changing Regions is a program initiated by Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP). The Plan gives a sub-regional housing analysis of communities in and around the Chicago region. This project is a next step for the Homes Plan for the Village of Park Forest, IL. The initial Homes Plan analysis for Park Forest did not show a very promising future for the Village and identified foreclosed homes, slow economic growth and decreasing population as barriers to future growth. For the same, the Homes Plan has identified two potential urban design proposal sites, the Downtown Park Forest and the Eastgate Neighborhood. This project entails a detailed analysis of the present housing conditions, future needs and development strategies for improving the Eastgate Neighborhood. The analysis was done with the help of CMAPs toolkits, that have been made available by the organization on their website for developing further on the initial analysis. The analysis is followed by tentative design as well as policy recommendations.
