A summary of the key deliverables that will be created during the next phase of the General Plan Update is provided below:
- Village Character Plans: Collaboration with village planning committees to develop a concise planning document that will summarize the village’s character and address the village’s assets and challenges. The character plan process will also afford the village planning committees the opportunity to collaborate with planners on the development of goals and strategies that support the General Plan.
- Growth Strategy Mapping Exercises: Identification of three areas within each village – Areas of Preservation, Areas of Retrofit and Areas of Growth.
- Village Center Exercises: Assignment of Place Type (Centers) to the areas designated Areas of Growth. The Centers will provide a framework for the scale and intensity of growth at a particular location. There will be a total of seven Centers to choose from. The Centers will be organized into a tier system structured around available and planned infrastructure (i.e. transit, jobs, parks, streets). Click here to watch a short video on the workshop.
