What is the Master Plan?
The Village has used a Master Plan since 1992 to describe the Village and identify goals and objectives for the future. A Master Plan shapes development for current and future welfare of the community. Much broader than ordinances, the Master Plan does not bind the Village to specific procedures but is rather a guide and aid for interpretation and decision-making.
Why update the Master Plan?
The period of the 2020 Master Plan is coming to a close and, as is only natural over time, conditions and perceptions of the Village have changed. Updating the plan reflects these changes and helps us all to prepare for years to come.

If you would like email updates and meeting reminders, please email us at email@example.com to be put on the email list. Please be advised that email lists compiled by the Village are "Public Records" and, per State Statute, are open to public review and Public Records requests.
