Promote a more efficient, sustainable and forward thinking transportation system in Lake County.
Lake County, IL has both traffic congestion and is vastly underserved by public transit. We believe that there is a unique opportunity in Lake County to modernize our transportation system and create a more sustainable plan while positioning Lake County to be competitive in a modern economy. Rather than plow billions of dollars into a tollway extension that will bring even more traffic and degrade our communities, we have found many better, less expensive, quicker and sustainable alternatives. These include strategic road improvements at choke points, incentivizing shorter commutes, active transportation and Complete Streets planning, harnessing ride sharing to connect to improved mass transit, and transportation demand management (TDM) techniques such as businesses incentivizing their employees to live near work, enabling carpooling, flextime and telecommuting.
