About this Article

The planners hired to develop a concept for downtown Mt. Prospect say the village should take advantage of hidden gems, like Busse and Prospect avenues, and make the area more pedestrian- and bike-friendly. Kevin Clark, of the Lakota Group, said the train station is a "big part" of downtown Mount Prospect. "That's a big reason why a lot of people live here," he said.
