Roosevelt Road Updated Plan CoverThe City of Wheaton has adopted the Roosevelt Road Corridor Plan, which is a shared vision for future development along the Roosevelt Road Corridor that is responsive to existing conditions and emerging trends, and appropriate for our community. Following the release of an initial plan draft, the City tasked Camiros Ltd. with incorporating the input of the community, City Council and City staff to develop a revised draft.

Throughout the process of adopting this plan, the City created this video to help guide you through the plan, highlighting key sections along the way. You can view the Final Draft Roosevelt Road Corridor Plan (PDF), which incorporates feedback from the community and City Council from several community input sessions and City Council meetings.

At the Aug. 15 City Council Meeting, the Wheaton City Council approved an ordinance amending the City's Official Comprehensive Plan to include the Roosevelt Road Corridor Plan. See the staff memo from the Aug. 15 meeting, which summarizes the project and how public input has shaped this plan. 

Next Step:

At the September 12 City Council Planning Session, the City Council will discuss implementation strategies for amending the Zoning Ordinance. This is a public meeting, and interested residents can attend in person or via Zoom. The meeting agenda will be posted on the City's website in the Agenda Center under City Council Planning Sessions before the end of the day Friday, Sept. 9. The agenda will include the Zoom link for this meeting.

In 2018, the City selected the consultant team of Camiros, Ltd. and Valerie Kretchmer & Associates to prepare a Comprehensive Plan/Market Study/Zoning Ordinance Update for the Roosevelt Road Corridor; a nearly two-mile-long corridor extending from Carlton Avenue on the west to the Wheaton/Glen Ellyn border on the east (just past Lorraine Road). 

The Roosevelt Road Corridor Comprehensive Plan/Market Study/Zoning Ordinance Update process will result in the identification of specific action items that will allow the City to advance the shared vision conceived by this effort.
