Introduction

Traffic LightThe Northwest Municipal Conference serves as home for the North Shore Council of Mayors, a cooperative body focused upon programming federal transportation funding for local road, transit, and bicycle facility projects. Members of the North Shore Council operate through a Technical Committee comprised of local engineers and public works directors whose mission is to identify and address local improvements to the transportation network.  The North Shore Council is one of 11 sub-regional councils in the Chicago region that represent local governments on transportation issues through the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP). CMAP serves as the Chicago region’s metropolitan planning organization (MPO), and is responsible for the programming of federal Surface Transportation Program (STP) funding.

The staff contact for the North Shore Council of Mayors is Christopher Staron, who can be reached at 847-296-9200 x 31 or cstaron@nwmc-cog.org.

History and Previous Projects

Surface Transportation Program (STP) funding was created by Congress through the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 and renewed through the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century in 1998 and the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) of 2005. STP funding is intended for local governments to address specific transportation issues within their geographic regions. CMAP distributes STP funds based upon a council’s population.

The North Shore Council has used STP funding to reconstruct roadways Evanston and Skokie, repair pavement conditions in Northbrook and Northfield, and modernize traffic signals in Morton Grove. Wilmette is currently utilizing STP funding to reconstruct Sheridan Road.

The following is a list of all projects accomplished in the North Shore Council using STP funds and similar locally programmed fund sources from 1972 to through federal FY 2007.
