On September 14, 2009, the Village Board adopted the 2009 Comprehensive Plan Update. A Comprehensive Plan is a document that works as a Policy Guide for future development and redevelopment decisions over the next ten to twenty years. Our last Comprehensive Plan was prepared in 1984 and therefore needed to be updated for it to effectively guide community planning, development, and decision making.
Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee
A 15-member Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC) was set up by Trustees Cullerton and Bulthuis, comprising of residents and business owners to assist in the process. A consultant team of Teska Associates and Business Districts Inc. was hired in Summer 2008, to assist the village in updating the plan.
A website was created especially for this project to keep you informed and obtain continuous feedback from the community. Visit the Villa Park Comprehensive Plan Update project page, the results from the community survey, meeting agendas, minutes, photos, and various presentations made by the consultants during the process, etc.
The final Comprehensive Plan not only provides guidelines for future development in terms of land use, it also offers strategies and concepts for areas along major corridors. The document also offers an implementation plan, with priorities.
