Comprehensive Plan Update

Downtown to Treasure

The Village is currently in the process of updating its comprehensive plan. Glen Ellyn’s existing plan was adopted in 2001. The new plan will act as a blueprint for the Village’s future by assessing the community’s existing conditions, vision for the future and opportunities for growth. To date, there have been many opportunities for public participation including community surveys, stakeholder meetings, key person interviews, work group meetings and an interactive map-based outreach platform. In addition, several public meetings will be held before the Plan Commission and Village Board prior to the adoption of the new plan. 

Public meetings were held in May and June before the Plan Commission and the Village Board to review a draft of the downtown subarea plan which is one section of the future comprehensive plan. Discussions during the meetings included the overall vision for downtown, downtown height limitations and downtown catalyst (possible development opportunity) sites. The downtown sub-area plan was drafted prior to the other subarea plans to allow additional public input on this important Village asset. 

To gather further community input, the Village hosted an open house on June 26 at the Civic Center to discuss six catalyst sites, including three in the downtown subarea and three in the Roosevelt Road corridor. This was an informal public forum for the community to interact with the Village’s consultants from Houseal Lavigne and Associates and to provide feedback on the proposed concepts that have been developed for the catalyst sites. The sites featured in the draft of the comprehensive plan are simply highlighted as sites that are underutilized where new development might occur. Any of the sites, if redeveloped, could have a positive impact or catalyze other reinvestment opportunities.
