Improve Today's Old Town
Using a light touch, this concept plan adds more commercial and residential uses and improves river access in the Old Town area. Commercial activities enliven the existing buildings on the southwest side of the river as well as a new building at the northwest corner of Wisconsin and Main Street. The former Public Works site is redeveloped with rowhomes, adding Old Town residents to support local businesses. Wisconsin Street, between Main and Cleveland Street, is occasionally closed to host community activities and events, such as a farmers' market. A greenway is built between Carpenter Park and the Fox River with a bike trail and minimal disruptions to M&M Aggregate.

Parks and Open Space
  • Bike trail to the Fox River Dam: a bike trail connection is created north of Main street to the Fox River Dam along Lincoln Avenue
  • Bike trail to Raceway Woods: The bike trail travels west to connect with Raceway Woods
  • Greenway: A new greenway is created between Carpenter Park and the river along Carpenter Creek
  • Park north of ComEd: Village-owned property is converted to a new park that helps screen the ComEd property. A new trail runs through the property connecting to Triangle Park
New Commercial
  • Commercial near Grist Mill: A new commercial building is constructed on the highly visible site in the heart of Old Town, just north of the Grist Mill
  • Commercial near canoe launch: New commercial uses are added along River Street to capitalize on the new canoe launch in McNamee Park

New Housing
  • Updated single-family residential: The appearance and condition of existing homes along the western side of Lincoln Avenue are improved
  • Updated apartments: The appearance of the existing apartments along the river is improved
  • New residential at the public works site: The former public works land on Cleveland is redeveloped with rowhomes
Transportation
  • Special events on Wisconsin Street: The Village temporarily closes Wisconsin Street for special Village events, such as farmers' markets, to create a central gathering point for the community
  • Restored street: A new street bounds the redeveloped public works facility
Common Elements
  • New Commercial uses in the recently renovated Otto Engineering buildings
  • Enhancements to the tree canopy
  • Screening of the ComEd substation
  • Adding bricked crosswalks at key intersections

{ scenarioId : 2 }
Focusing on Main Street

Given Main Street’s role as the sole connector between the east and west sides of the Fox River, this concept plan reinforces Main Street as the central corridor of Old Town. Using a series of infill treatments, new commercial and mixed-use buildings are added to currently underutilized locations. New parking structures replace some of the displaced off-street parking as well as respond to the increase in parking demands. Home-based businesses are allowed in the existing homes further east on Main Street, which has been converted to a two-way street with a traffic signal at Washington. With the relocation of Quiltmaster to the former Public Works site, a new Village Hall is constructed. New rowhomes and multi-family buildings on the M&M Aggregate site as well as on the properties south on River Road add new residents to the area.

Parks and Open Space
  • Bike trail to the Fox River Dam: A bike trail connection is created along the floodplain through private property to the Fox River Dam
  • Realigned Fox River Trail: The existing trail is rerouted north to the intersection of Washington Street and Main Street
  • New greenway: A new public park is created south of the public works facility along Carpenter Creek
New Commercial
  • Commercial lining parking structure: New retail on the ground floor masking a parking structure
  • Infill commercial lining parking structure: New retail on the ground floor masking a parking structure
  • Commercial: New commercial uses on Village property north of ComEd substation

New Office and Light Industrial
  • Otto expansion: The off-street parking lot on the northeast corner of Main and Lincoln is redeveloped as a mixed-use building that could house future expansion of Otto Engineering as well as retail on Main Street
  • Relocated Quiltmaster: Quiltmaster is relocated to the former public works facility
Mixed-use Development
  • Mixed-use along the Fox River: A new mixed-use building is constructed that includes ground floor retail and office or residential uses above.
New Housing
  • Updated single-family residential: The appearance and condition of the existing homes along the western side of Lincoln Avenue are improved
  • Updated apartments: The appearance and condition of the existing apartments along the river is improved
  • New rowhomes and senior housing: M&M Aggregate is redeveloped with residential uses, dependent upon resolving floodplain constraints
Transportation
  • New signalized intersection: The intersection of Washington Street and Main Street is signalized to improve traffic flow and ease congestion
  • Two-way street: The existing one-way (eastbound) section of Main Street is converted to two-way traffic flow
  • Restored street: A new street bounds the redeveloped public works facility
  • New parking structures: Two parking structures consolidate off-street parking lots and line the street with retail uses
Municipal Services
  • New Village Hall: A new Village hall is constructed facing Triangle Park
Common Elements
  • New commercial uses in the recently renovated Otto Engineering buildings
  • Enhancements to the tree canopy
  • Screening of the ComEd substation
  • Adding brick crosswalks at key intersections

The Riverfront as a Focus

One of Old Town’s greatest assets is the Fox River and this concept plan focuses on connecting people to the riverfront. Mixed-use development lines a new street and plaza, bringing visitors and residents down to a new riverfront park and riverwalk. Rowhouses provide the backdrop to the park further south. The Fox River Trail is redirected to this area to bring visitors closer to the water, before it heads north over the old train bridge and into the west side of the Forest Preserve lands. Carpenter Park is also connected to the Riverfront with a greenway and bike trail. New residential development along Cleveland, River Road and Lincoln Avenue bring more residents to Old Town. The west side of the river also features a riverwalk that connects to the commercial near Main Street. A new parking structure is added on the northeast corner of Wisconsin and Main to replace the off-street parking and respond to new parking demands.

Parks and Open Space
  • Extended Fox River Trail using existing bridge: The Fox River Trail continues across the old train bridge to the forest preserve lands on the west side of the river, dependent on engineering studies
  • New Riverfront Park: A new public park is created along the Fox River that includes both active and passive recreational opportunities
  • Riverwalk: Both sides of the Fox River south of Main Street feature a riverwalk for pedestrians and bicyclists
  • Trailheads: New trailheads (one in the north and one in the south) are developed for the Fox River Trail; including shelters, restrooms, parking and trail signage
  • Rerouted Fox River Trail: The Fox River Trail is redirected to the new Riverfront Park and riverwalk
  • New greenway: Public open space linking Carpenter Park with the river is created along Carpenter Creek. This new park will extend along the Fox River north to Main Street and south to McNamee Park
New Commercial
  • Commercial lining parking structure: New commercial uses activate the ground floor fronting Main Street
Mixed-use Development
  • Mixed-use along the Fox River: A new mixed-use buildings line the new Riverfront Park and Triangle Park

New Housing
  • Rowhomes along Lincoln Avenue: Rowhomes are constructed on the east and west sides of Lincoln Avenue
  • Riverfront residences: M&M Aggregate is redeveloped with rowhomes facing the river
  • Rowhomes along Triangle Park: Rowhomes are constructed on the corner of Washington and Cleveland
  • Multi-family: The former public works facility is redeveloped as a two or three-story condominium or apartment building with a potential focus on senior housing
  • River Road rowhomes: Rowhomes replace the existing industrial properties along River Road
Transportation
  • New street: A new street provides circulation and access to the riverfront and new mixed-use buildings
  • Restored street: A new street bounds the redeveloped public works facility
  • New parking structure: A new parking structure would consolidate off-street surface parking lots and would provide parking for employees, visitors and shoppers
Common Elements
  • New commercial uses in the recently renovated Otto Engineering buildings
  • Enhancements to the tree canopy
  • Screening of the ComEd substation
  • Adding brick crosswalks at key intersections
