For years, the RNA has been working with the city to improve the Ravinia business district, establishing the Tax Increment Financing (TIF), securing marketing studies and planning for upgraded streetscapes and necessary infrastructure improvements. The city has now assembled the professional services of Hitchcock Design Group, Nicholas Associates and Strand Associates to create a streetscape design and branding study.

On October 11th at 7:00 an open house will be held to allow residents to view draft concepts and offer input. The event will be held at Ravinia Festival Dining Pavilion, located at 418 Sheridan Road, and accessed via the North Lot gate.
