The Freightway Steering Committee (FSC), is a diverse group of community members, including residents, representatives from neighborhood organizations, Land Use Boards and businesses. The Village Board appointed the FSC to create goals and objectives for the redevelopment of the 2.3 acre Freightway site. The ultimate goal is to produce a final report which outlines the goals and objectives to be utilized in the future development plan for the site. More specifically, the final report will provide the basis for a Request for Proposals/Interest in order to solicit proposals from the private development community. The FSC will meet regularly over the course of 18 months to solicit input and develop a vision for the site, with the help of BFJ Planning, a planing firm, and village staff.
