We have launched two new surveys on the Participate Page as another way to gather your input during the planning process. One is geared towards residents of Lansing, the other towards business owners and operators. If you have a business and also live in the Village, you are welcome to complete both surveys. Each will take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

After conducting a highly-attended community workshop, the planning team is working on creating an existing conditions report that documents important elements of the Village including land use, transportation, community facilities, parks and recreation, and demographic analysis. The report will also include summaries of the community outreach conducted to date. This report will serve as a benchmark foundation to guide the comprehensive plan.

Community Workshop a Success

Posted Thursday, January 31, 2013

Over 120 people attended last night's community workshop at the Lansing Public Library! The high attendance is a great sign of community enthusiasm about improving the quality of life in Lansing. Community members were asked to identify and prioritize the most important issues facing the village, suggest desired actions to be undertaken, and list the strengths and assets of Lansing. The discussion was insightful and greatly informed the planning team on the issues and conerns residents have about their community. The results of the workshop wills serve to guide the comprehensive planning process going forward.

Planning for the Future: A Comprehensive Plan for Lansing

Posted Tuesday, November 20, 2012

The Village of Lansing leadership, including Mayor Abbott and the Village Trustees, are excited to announce that Lansing is planning a "road map" for the future of the village by creating a Comprehensive Plan for the entire Village. The last time the Village completed a plan of this magnitude was in 1995. A lot has changed since that time and now the Village leaders are charting a new plan for the future.

The Comprehensive Plan will address many issues including, land use and development, transportation and circulation, community facilities, infrastructure, environmental features, and parks and open space. In addition to the community-wide plans, the Comprehensive Plan will also provide more detailed plans for several key areas in the community.

What is a Comprehensive Plan? A Comprehensive Plan serves as a Village’s official guide for land use, physical improvements, local services, 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 community achieve its long-term objectives.
