What is a Long Range Comprehensive Plan?

A long range comprehensive plan (Comp Plan) is a policy document that details the Village's long-term vision and goals and outlines the steps necessary to achieve them. The plan is intended to guide growth and development in an organized, efficient, and sustainable manner. To do so, it looks to the future to anticipate trends and issues that could impact how growth and development occur. The plan is long range in scope, focusing on the ultimate needs of the community rather than the pressing concerns of today.

Comprehensive Plan Update

While the planning horizon for a Comp Plan is typically 20-30 years, it's important to review and update the plan in the interim to ensure the vision described in the plan is still the vision residents have for their community. The Village's existing Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2010. Since that time, many of the plan's goals have been completed and new opportunities have been presented. With extensive public participation, residents will create a blueprint for the Village that outlines the steps needed to achieve the community's vision.

To help us with this important task, the Village has engaged consultants Town Planning & Urban Design Collaborative. Because the planning process will be comprehensive, it will take nearly 18 months to complete and will culminate in the Village Council adopting the plan in the late summer or early fall of 2019.
