Comprehensive Plan Update Process Resumes

The process of updating the 2012 Comprehensive Plan is resuming after a hiatus of several months due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. One of the last major steps in the process was the posting of the First Full Draft of the Comprehensive Plan Update in October 2019 for Village residents and other stakeholders to review and submit comments. Several weeks after that, on October 24, 2019, a “Comprehensive Plan Summit” was held to discuss the First Full Draft (click here to view the LMC Media video recording).

During the the first half of this year, a Second Draft of the Comprehensive Plan Update was prepared. This draft reflects comments submitted about the First Full Draft of the Comprehensive Plan Update. The comments have been organized into a table that includes a column with responses to each comment. We anticipate posting this table to this website along with an updated version of the Second Draft by the end of September or early October.

Note: The following timeline is being revised. We will post an updated timeline as soon as the dates are selected (last revised on September 18, 2020).
