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.

To get involved in the plan, we encourage you to:

  • Take a short SURVEY to weigh in on how you use the area and what improvements you would like to see happen
  • Follow the website with this EMAIL SIGNUP to get all future project updates
  • Use the SHARE AN IDEA tool to provide a photo or a document that accentuates your ideas for Jefferson Park
  • Review RESOURCES, such as maps of the Project Study Area and Market Area

On April 26 and 27, 2017, an initial set of meetings were held at the Copernicus Center with a newly formed Residents Resource Group, Business Resource Group, and Technical Advisory Committee. The Residents and Business Resource Groups will both provide input into the planning process as well as serve as ambassadors to the larger community to ensure outreach is made to everyone who would like to be involved in the plan — from young families who have recently moved to Jefferson Park to seniors who have lived here their entire lives. Stay tuned for a Community Meeting to be held in June. [MORE]
