Strategic Plan

The Village of Glen Ellyn’s Strategic Plan provides a clear vision for the community over the next several years. The Glen Ellyn Village Board agreed to proceed with the 2018-20 Strategic Plan, which it had developed in planning sessions held in 2017. During these sessions, Village leadership reviewed various surveys conducted by key Village stakeholders, including the elected Village Board and Village employees. This process formed the basis for the development of the plan. Each year, the plan will be reviewed and adjusted with the priorities of the Village Board and integrated with the budget process. Every two years, a realignment process will be completed with the Village Board.
