EVANSTON, Ill. --- The City of Evanston and the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) encourage Evanston residents -- including Northwestern students, faculty and staff -- to provide input on issues and conditions related to the seven Evanston stations on the Purple Line (at South Boulevard, Main, Dempster, Davis, Foster, Noyes and Central) during an open house. 

The open house is from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Dec. 3 at the Fleetwood-Jourdain Center, 1655 Foster St., Evanston.   

The meeting is one of a number of open houses designed to get public input on the CTA's ongoing study of the Red Line North and Purple Line -- from the Addison Red Line station to Linden on the Purple Line. The vision study will provide guidance for doing major rehabilitation work in the future, pending funding availability. 

Evanston residents can give feedback on the Evanston segment of the Purple Line at the open house, get tours of exhibits and receive information on the Vision Study process and long-term timeline.
