The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) recently sought input from 7 northeastern Illinois counties on how the region might look in the future. Kendall County residents along with residents from Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will Counties had an opportunity to provide input on a draft of the GO TO 2040 Comprehensive Regional Plan for northeastern Illinois.
Comprehensive Regional Plan
The GO TO 2040 Comprehensive Regional Plan is an instrumental planning tool for the future and was adopted on October 13, 2010. The plan will guide the growth in the counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry and Will for the rest of this century. In addition to land use and transportation, the GO TO 2040 plan also addresses quality-of-life issues including the natural environment, economic development, housing, and human services such as education, health care, and other social services.
The next step in the process is a series of implementation meetings. The meeting times, dates, and locations have not yet been determined. Please review this website frequently for an updated scheduled of GO TO 2040 Comprehensive Regional planning implementation meetings.
