The Village recently closed on the purchase of the Grainger property at 1657 Shermer Road. For the past several months, the Village has had preliminary discussions with representatives of METRA about the possibility of relocating the train station to the Grainger site. Village staff is in the process of drafting a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to work with METRA officials to explore the feasibility of relocating the station. The relocation would increase Northbrook’s commuter space inventory by approximately 20% and reduce the amount of time that Shermer Road is blocked by commuter trains stopped at the station. The Village will continue to work with METRA on this idea and will have an MOU on a future Board agenda for discussion.
