The Challenge

Re-purpose over 1400 acres of industrial land and help revitalize Waukegan’s central business district.

The Process

A Team was assembled to work with the community and its leadership in order to reach a broad consensus regarding economic and land use directions for this challenged real estate that was clearly a liability for the City.

The Outcomes

Several Downtown and Lakefront project initiatives, focused on development programming, land assembly and implementation budgets were identified. Significant commercial and residential investments have been made over the past few years. New restaurants, building renovations and mixed income housing units have been introduced and environmental remediation has been initiated on several older industrial properties along the lakefront.
