The Office of Economic Development (Jim Mager, firstname.lastname@example.org) will be overseeing the Comprehensive Plan Review Committee. The comprehensive plan is a statutory requirement by the State of Illinois. The importance of the plan is to service as a “bible” for setting direction of the Village. The plan is often referenced when applying for grants from various agencies. While the comprehensive plan has no “enforcement” authority, it is used to provide guidance in developing ordinances for the Village.
