Welcome to the project website for Wilmette’s Downtown Streetscape Plan!
The Downtown Streetscape Plan is focused on improvements to Wilmette and Central Avenues within downtown, including improvements to lighting, sidewalks, roadways, plantings and amenities.
Big thanks to everyone who came out to the Public Meeting on February 26 at Village Hall! We enjoyed meeting with you all and hearing your inputs about the streetscape concepts.
The design team is compiling the meeting results for an upcoming presentation to Village Board on May 28 at 7:30 PM. All are welcome to attend and please continue to stay involved in this important – and exciting – effort for downtown Wilmette.
Please send comments and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks to everyone who came out to Music on the Green!
Results are in! BIG THANKS to the fine folks in Wilmette for sharing your inputs on the Streetscape Poll. After a whopping 647 responses and hundreds of thoughtful individual comments, we noticed some trends:
Downtown is already a treasured place with unique character. The streetscape should accommodate safe and attractive places for people to gather and visit with friends. Future changes should maintain open access to sidewalks and businesses. Folks LOVE the hanging baskets and decorative tree lighting — and would like to see more native plantings in the streetscape.
