The Jefferson Park Station Area Master Plan presents a vision and implementation plan for the future of the neighborhood, documenting the community’s preferred path for future change and providing predictability for potential new development. A comprehensive outreach strategy was undertaken to involve residents, businesses, neighborhood associations, cultural institutions, property owners and other stakeholders in a process to develop a vision, goals and projects for the area.

Welcome to ACCESS JEFF PARK, the website for the Jefferson Park Station Area Master Plan. The plan will focus around the Jefferson Park Station Area in Chicago, home to the CTA Blue Line, Metra UP Northwest, twelve CTA bus lines, and three Pace bus lines. The plan will look at improving access for all modes of transportation and form a vision for complementary uses around the station to support local businesses and the character of the surrounding Jefferson Park community. The project is being led by the City of Chicago Department of Planning and Development and Alderman John Arena, with support from the Regional Transportation Authority.
