Design Guidelines Context

Chicagoland is a mosaic of different communities all with different physical, environmental, regulatory, aspirational, and policy conditions. The Design Guidelines must be direct in their recommendations, yet broadly applicable to the wide spectrum of communities that exist throughout the region. The Design Guidelines must balance existing conditions with the region’s vision for more transit-friendly development and the on-going evolution of Pace bus service. Finally, the Design Guidelines must be easily understood and implemented, serving to guide a wide range of diverse users and stakeholders.
