Route 12 Corridor Planning Council
The Route 12 Corridor is located in Ela Township and overlaps portions of Deer Park, Hawthorn Woods, Kildeer, North Barrington, Lake Zurich and unincorporated Lake County. Given these multiple jurisdictions within a relatively small area, in 1997 local municipal leaders recognized that joint corridor land use planning would facilitate aesthetically pleasing, cohesive development.
Council members share a vision of Rand Road as an important "gateway" to their communities. This effort to coordinate land use planning is fostering a sense of place. The Route 12 Corridor stands out as an example of Lake County development at its best.
The Route 12 Corridor Planning Council has produced design guidelines, to be used by the five member villages and Lake County, for reviewing development within the corridor:
Landscaping Guidelines for Corridor Development
Sign Guidelines for Corridor Development
Architecture Guidelines for Corridor Development
Site Layout Guidelines for Corridor Development
The design guidelines are used to review planned unit developments (PUDs), conditional use/special use permits, and building permits.
