Woodridge looking for feedback in developing Town Centre Master Plan

WOODRIDGE – The village of Woodridge and Woodridge Park District are beginning the process of creating a Town Centre Master Plan, and are looking for feedback from residents as part of the process.

The Town Centre Master Plan project will identify land use alternatives and develop conceptual site plans for the Town Centre area.

The Town Centre area is located north of 75th Street and south of Hobson Road and includes the following existing facilities: Village Hall, Woodridge Public Library, Woodridge Police/Public Works facility, Park District Community Center, U.S Post Office and Jefferson Junior High School.

Public open space within the Town Centre area consists of Hawthorne Hill Woods, Memorial Park, Lake Carleton, Lake Harriet and 44 acres of open space jointly owned by the village and park district.

The intent of the plan is to provide both the village and park district with a community-supported concept that further strengthens the Town Centre as a community focal point, officials said.

The first opportunity for the community to get involved will be a Community Workshop to be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29, at at the Woodridge Park District Community Center, 2600 Center Drive.
