Buffalo Grove will host an open house Thursday, Nov. 16, to reveal the draft vision of the future Lake Cook Corridor and gather feedback from residents, business owners and others interested.

The draft vision has been shaped by community input and grounded by environmental, fiscal and market realities, officials said.

The open house is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 16, at Buffalo Grove Village Hall, 50 Raupp Blvd., Buffalo Grove.

Project team members will be there to address comments, questions and collect additional feedback from the community.

The Lake Cook Corridor encompasses more than 472 acres and includes an excess of one million square feet of commercial space, residential dwellings, the village campus and municipal golf course. The corridor also serves as a gateway to the village as it connects Buffalo Grove to a regional network of expressways, highways and other major roads. With more than 40,000 vehicles traveling on it per day, it is one of the most utilized and visible roads in the Chicago region.

The project team anticipates the plan will be completed by early 2018.
