PUBLIC INPUT SOUGHT ON SUGGESTIONS
FOR SOUTH FARNSWORTH AVENUE

As part of a study on growth and development along South Farnsworth Avenue, the City of Aurora has initiated the Farnsworth Feasibility Study and will host a public Open House to review exhibits and provide comments about the stretch of Farnsworth from New York Street to U.S. Route 30.

The Open House will be held on Wednesday, February 24 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Allen Elementary School, 700 S. Farnsworth Avenue. The open house format allows for attendees to visit at any point during the three hours to review exhibits, provide comments and discuss issues with staff members.

The Farnsworth Avenue Feasibility Study is a comprehensive look at existing roadway conditions, capacity issues and future transportation needs for the Farnsworth Avenue Corridor from New York Street south to U.S. Route 30. This section of Farnsworth is part of the Strategic Regional Arterial (SRA) roadway network for northeastern Illinois identified by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP). The corridor has experienced considerable growth in population, employment and travel demand, and that growth is expected to continue in the future.

If residents, business owners and stakeholders are unable to attend the Open House in person, suggestions can be submitted by Wednesday, March 9 via email to egallt@aurora-il.org or in person/mail to City of Aurora Engineering Department, 44 E. Downer Place, Aurora, IL, 60507.
