In our commitment to transparency and community involvement, we are pleased to share the Village's plans for comprehensive land use and strategic planning to steer our future trajectory. Additionally, under this page, the Draft Riverfront Master Plan can also be viewed.  As our village evolves and grows, it's imperative to have a clear roadmap that aligns with our collective vision while addressing the needs of our residents and stakeholders.

Comprehensive land use planning is the cornerstone of responsible development and community growth. It involves assessing current land use patterns, identifying future needs and opportunities, and establishing guidelines and policies to guide development and land use decisions. Our village recognizes the importance of this process in maintaining the character of our community, preserving natural resources, and fostering sustainable growth. Through comprehensive land use planning, we aim to strike a balance between economic vitality, environmental stewardship, and quality of life for all.

Strategic Planning: Charting Our Course Forward
In our strategic planning process, we will engage with stakeholders from across the community to gather input, identify key issues and opportunities, and establish clear goals and strategies for our Village. This collaborative approach ensures that our plans reflect the diverse perspectives and priorities of those who call our village home.

Community Engagement: Your Voice Matters
At the heart of our planning efforts is community engagement. We recognize that the best plans are those that are shaped by the people they affect, which is why we are committed to involving residents, businesses, and other stakeholders every step of the way. We encourage you to take part of all public meetings and workshops, and stay engaged with the Village’s website, Facebook page, and e-newsletter.

We encourage you to stay informed and get involved in our processes. Whether through public meetings, surveys, serving on committees, communication by email, or online forums, your input is invaluable in shaping the future of our village.

Moving Forward Together
By prioritizing comprehensive land use planning and strategic decision-making, we can ensure that our village remains a desirable place to live, work, and thrive for generations to come.
