About US

The Glenview ACTION (Alliance to Control Train Impact on Our Neighborhoods) Committee was formed after concerned citizens learned about proposed plans to construct freight train holding tracks as part of the Amtrak Hiawatha expansion.

In May 2019, three years after holding tracks were first proposed, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) indicated it “will not agree to freight train holding tracks in Glenview or Lake Forest.”

While the holding tracks are no longer being considered, the ACTION Committee continues to monitor this project. Village of Glenview officials are continuing to work with IDOT and the railroads on alternative scenarios that can increase passenger rail service without detrimental impacts on our community.
