The Cutting Edge winner will be announced at the November 14 LCML Annual Banquet.
Two committees have been formed: Finance and Land Use. The Finance Committee will consider detailed project information from the feasibility analysis to develop a financing strategy for the project. Ultimately, the Finance Committee will seek to answer the questions
- Is the project feasible?
- Should the Tollway build the project?
Its work will be the basis to develop a recommendation to the Illinois Tollway Board of Directors as to whether the Tollway should continue to move forward with the project. Communities in the direct path of the corridor will have a representative on the Finance Committee.
The Land Use Committee will develop a corridor-wide land use plan that feeds into the Tollway’s analysis and
establishes an integrated strategy for land use, transportation and economic development in the corridor.
Committees will meet quarterly and the BRAC will meet again in late spring/ early summer 2014, with the final reports to be presented to the Tollway by the end of 2014. For more information go to click here.

SWALCO has launched a brand-new recycling campaign, “Recycle First. Trash Last.” The campaign encourages all Lake County residents to place a priority on recycling first, and trashing what’s left. Instead of immediately thinking about throwing away that empty shampoo bottle, for example, ask yourself “is that recyclable?” (The answer, by the way, is yes!) For a full list of what is accepted in Lake County, click here.
While many residents in Lake County already do a good job at recycling, we can always do better. Check out the campaign at www.RecycleFirstTrashLast.org and learn more about curbside recycling in Lake County, the campaign and what you can and cannot recycle.
Illinois State Toll Highway Authority Strategic Planning Committee Supports IL Route 53/120 Blue Ribbon Advisory Council’s Recommendations.
Lake County Board Chairman, David Stolman, attended the August 15 Strategic Planning Committee of Illinois State Toll Highway Authority. At the meeting, tollway staff presented the Committee with a summary of the IL Route 53/120 Blue Ribbon Advisory Council’s key recommendations and began discussing next steps for the corridor improvement.
The committee supported the Tollway beginning the process of engaging consultants to develop a more detailed design concept for the 53/120 corridor. This would include developing details regarding design, traffic, cost estimates and financing options. The committee also supported working with CMAP, Lake County and the communities along the 53/120 corridor to initiate a corridor land use plan.
