Comprehensive plan update

Update: The Village incorporated the feedback requested by the Village Board during its discussion.  A copy of the updated draft Comprehensive Plan and Action (Implementation) Matrix are now available for review.  It is anticipated that the Village Board will take final action and adopt the Comprehensive Plan at its May 13, 2019 meeting.

Update: At its April 8, 2019 meeting, the Village Board discussed the Plan Commission's recommendation to approve the Comprehensive Plan and gave additional opportunity for public comment at the meeting.  A copy of the final draft plan that incorporated the changes requested by the Plan Commission at the Public Hearing is available here.  The implementation matrix had been broken out into a separate document.

This action follows a nearly year-long process undertaken by the Village's Plan CommissionVillage Board and Staff.  The existing Comprehensive Plan, which was last updated in 2003, is the official policy guide for land use and development.  It also sets forth long-range recommendations for the maintenance and enhancement of the community as well as desirable improvements, developments and redevelopments in selected locations.

The Plan is "comprehensive" in both scope and coverage. It encompasses the use of land and buildings, the movement of vehicles and pedestrians, and the provision of public facilities. It also addresses residential neighborhoods, commercial areas, public and institutional lands, and public rights-of-way.

Community input has been critically important to the process of updating the Comprehensive Plan and residents have shared their thoughts through surveys, the project website, community meetings and events, map.social tool, and more.
