Comprehensive Plan Update


Glen Ellyn began the process of updating its 2001 Comprehensive Plan in July 2018. The Village conducted a robust public engagement process beginning in August 2018 and continuing through June 2021.

Since that time, significant efforts have been made to maintain and enhance the Village as a thriving, desirable place to live. As the community is predominantly built out, the Village has focused on growth through redevelopment, reinvestment, and placemaking in its established districts. The updated Comprehensive Plan presents recommendations to strengthen Glen Ellyn’s existing residential neighborhoods, commercial corridors, and the Downtown while looking at opportunities for new development. The Plan serves as a guide for planning and land use decisions and policy formation over the next 10 to 20 years. 

Over the last few months, the Village Board has engaged in a thorough review of the draft Comprehensive Plan that was recommended by the Plan Commission in March 2021. The Board has reviewed Chapters 1-3 and a portion of Chapter 4, as well as Chapters 5-8 in detail. In addition, the Village Board has agreed to some modifications to the recommended Vision, Values, Objectives, and Goals. The Village’s consultant group, Houseal Lavigne and Associates, is conducting a final edit of the draft plan.
