The Village of Lincolnwood Development Department began a program aimed
at creating better parking situations at strip malls throughout the
Village. The Village began this campaign by gathering parking lot data
consisting of number of spots and designations (Handicap), required
spots determined by Village ordinance, as well as business information
such as name, land use and business square footage. Assisting in this
study, the Geographic Information System (GIS) Specialist was able to
take the address and business information, map it and create a visual
representation of strip malls that have and do not have adequate
parking. This study will assist in providing locating businesses where
they can have proper amount of parking spaces. By analyzing this data,
the Village is looking to prevent congestion and possible traffic flow
disruption along adjoining streets.
