Village to Solicit Resident Input on Comprehensive Plan at Upcoming Public Meeting

The Village is in the beginning stages of a project to prepare a new Comprehensive Plan for the community. Through the Comprehensive Planning process, community goals and aspirations in areas such as land use, recreation, housing, education, economic development, quality of life, open space, and infrastructure are determined. The goals and objectives in the new Comprehensive Plan, which will be adopted by the Village Board at the end of the process, will guide future land use decisions and community development activities. It is important to engage and receive input from a broad cross section of community members during the process so that the Comprehensive Plan accurately reflects the goals of the entire community.
