Village Center Plan

Developing a Village Center

The Village of Hanover Park has been striving towards the development of a Village Center to accomplish the following goals:

  • To create a focal point and community gathering place for all residents and visitors
  • To significantly expand economic development opportunities in the Village, especially around transportation centers
  • To increase transportation options for all residents
Village Center Plan

Transit-Oriented Development

To accomplish these goals, the Village Center Plan focuses on the use of Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) to:

  • Account for changing economic and market conditions
  • Address lifestyle and housing choices
  • To create a dynamic Village Center with direct access to multiple modes of transportation

Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) is the functional integration of land use and transit via the creation of compact, walkable, mixed-use communities within walking distance of a transit stop or station. A TOD brings together people, jobs, and services designed in a way that makes it efficient, safe, and convenient to travel on foot or by bicycle, transit, or car.
