Update on the Comprehensive Plan Update

During the past year, the Village Board of Trustees has been involved in discussing the Moratorium Study and deliberating over changes in the Village’s regulations pertaining to multi-family residential development. Last month, the Village BOT adopted PLL-C 2019, a slate of rezoning proposals that reduces the potential of multi-family development in certain parts of the Village, retains it in others, and institutes policies to ensure the production of affordable housing units integrated into market-rate developments. For more information on the rezoning, please click here.

During this time, the process of drafting the Comprehensive Plan Update continued, but any further public and stakeholder engagement was put on hold. The last major public engagement event was the workshop held on September 27, 2018 (click here for more details and to download the workshop exhibits).

We are pleased to report that a preliminary draft of the Comprehensive Plan Update has been produced and is currently under review by the Planning Department. The next steps are to produce a revised version of the document and resume engagement with Village stakeholders, which includes posting a draft of the document online so residents and other interested parties can review it and provide the Planning Department with comments, questions, and suggestions.
