Transportation Committee Discusses CMAP Funding, IL Route 53/120 Extension The NWMC Transportation Committee met Thursday and discussed a proposal from the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) regarding the collection of local dues. Under the proposed scenario, councils of government would collect dues from municipalities on behalf of CMAP. In exchange, local dues would be reduced by 10%. The Committee recommended that the issue be brought before the NWMC Executive Board at their June 1 meeting. CMAP has recently approved the collection of local dues as a way to reduce reliance on state funds. The Committee also discussed the planned extension of IL Route 53 and the 120 bypass. Last week, Lake County Board Chairman Aaron Lawlor withdrew his support for the project, which leaves the Illinois Tollway to decide whether or not to move forward with the project’s planned Environmental Impact Study. The project has long been a NWMC transportation priority; therefore, the Committee instructed staff to send a letter to the Tollway reaffirming the Conference’s support for the project. Finally, the Committee passed a resolution in support of Dump the Pump Day, an annual event taking place on Thursday, June 16 which encourages the use of public transit.
