The Deerfield Road Phase I Study will include opportunities for public involvement in the form of public meetings. These large-scale open house format meetings will encourage public attendance and interaction with the project study group to solicit input at various project milestone points. Two public information meetings and a Public Hearing will be held to coincide with major milestones during the project development process. Please note that the timeframes shown below in parentheses are tentative and subject to change.
Public Information Meeting #1 (November 30, 2016) serves as a project kickoff providing information on the existing conditions and project development process, as well as seeking applicants for the SIG. It also provides an opportunity for the public to share its perspective regarding transportation issues and needs within the study area.
Public Information Meeting #2 (anticipated for Fall 2017) will present the project Purpose and Need and solicit input on the range of alternatives.
The Public Hearing (anticipated for Fall 2018) will present and solicit input on the draft Environmental Assessment and engineering report for the Preferred Alternative.
These meetings will utilize various presentation techniques such as project boards, handouts, and/or multimedia presentations summarizing the project work and findings to date. The meetings will be advertised on the project and village websites, by notices placed in area newspapers, through the use of message boards posted along the project corridor by LCDOT and by invitations to identified stakeholders. The public will have the opportunity to provide written comments at or following the meetings. All Public Meeting information will be posted to the project website following the meeting.
Lake County Division of Transportation (LCDOT) is hosting the first public information meeting regarding improvements to Deerfield Road from Milwaukee Avenue to Saunders/Riverwoods Road. The purpose of this meeting is to introduce the project to the public and present the study schedule, planning process, existing conditions, stakeholder involvement opportunities, and seek input on the transportation issues and needs.
The meeting will be conducted in an open house format and interested persons may visit anytime between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Attendees will have the opportunity to review exhibits, provide input on transportation issues and needs in the project study area, and meet with LCDOT and project team representatives. We encourage comments throughout the course of the study. Comments received by December 14, 2016, will specifically be added to this public meeting record.
