As Kankakee plans for downtown streetscape construction, please save the dates for upcoming construction coordination meetings. Meeting details below:
Couldn’t make it? No problem, the highlights of what we heard can be found here.
Check out the ‘documents’ page of the project website to view the presentation from the meeting.
Big thanks to our friends in Kankakee! We heard your comments about improving connections north and south of Court Street, providing places to sit and adding landscape plantings. Please join us at the upcoming open house to review exhibits and provide input.
Those shiny white Zagster bikes in front of the Farmers Market parking lot are part of a program to support biking throughout the communities of Kankakee, Manteno, Bradley, Bourbonnais, and other institutions.
The rain couldn’t keep us away from a great Farmers Market! Thanks to our new friends in Kankakee for visiting with us and discussing the Schuyler Avenue streetscape. Some of the themes we heard include: make better connections between north and south Schuyler Ave; continue the festoon lighting (and add more of it!); support outdoor cafes; improve places to sit, gather, bike, and stroll; and don’t forget trees and flowers!
