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.
