St. Charles aldermen to review comprehensive plan draft

ST. CHARLES – Aldermen on Monday are expected to review a draft of the 2013 comprehensive plan, according to a city of St. Charles news release.

The Planning and Development Committee meeting is set for 7 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 2 E. Main St.

“Presentation of the draft plan to the Planning and Development Committee is a significant milestone in the comprehensive planning process,” planning division manager Russell Colby said in the release. “Now, the elected officials will have the opportunity to formally weigh in on the document that has taken shape over the past year.”

The document, which was produced by the Comprehensive Plan Task Force, is the city’s official 10- to 15-year guide for land use, physical improvement and development. It is expected to guide policy decisions and help the community achieve its long-term vision, goals and objectives.

The Plan Commission already has been reviewed and included comments on the comprehensive plan.

The city began updating the comprehensive plan about two years ago. The task force hosted a series of public outreach workshops and open houses to document existing conditions and future opportunities, develop consensus and establish a community vision.

Visit www.stcharlesil.gov or call Colby at 630-377-4443 for information or to review the current version of the plan.
