Help us create . . . . A Comprehensive Plan for Sangamon County
What is a Comprehensive Plan? A Comprehensive Plan serves as an official guide for land use, physical improvement and development. The Comprehensive Plan provides a foundation for decision-making based on community consensus, community vision, existing conditions and future potentials. The Plan serves as a “road map” for 10 to 15 years into the future by guiding policy decisions and helping the county achieve its long-term objectives.
The Comprehensive Plan for the Sangamon County will address many issues including:
- Environment & Natural Resources
- Economic & Technology Development
- Transportation & Public Infrastructure
- Housing & Neighborhood Development
- Heritage & Cultural Amenities
- Open Space & Recreation
- Land Use & Development
The Comprehensive Plan will belong to the citizens of the county. As such, it is important that residents be given a prominent voice in the creation of the Plan's recommendations. A series of outreach events has been planned in order to engage all stakeholders, from residents to business owners to elected officials. There will be ample opportunity for everyone to voice their concerns and share their vision for the future of the region. Check the "Participate" tab for frequent updates to the outreach calendar and for announcements of these exciting, interactive events.
