UPDATE 9-13-13: This Public Hearing is Being Rescheduled
Due to a scheduling conflict with those involved the hearing has been postponed. It may happen in early October and I will post the new date when it becomes available.
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the PLAN COMMISSION of the Village of Round Lake Heights, Lake County, Illinois, will hold a Public Hearing beginning at 6:30 P.M., on Tuesday October 8, 2013 at Village Hall, 619 W. Pontiac Court, Round Lake Heights, Illinois, 60073. The purpose of the Public Hearing is to recommend the adoption of the Comprehensive Plan to
the Village Board of Trustees
The Comprehensive Plan (draft) may be revised as a result of the Public Hearing . All persons interested may appear at the Public Hearing and will be given an opportunity to be heard on the Comprehensive Plan.
Here are a few highlights:
• Throughout the process, stakeholders consistently touched on three broad issues: the need for a vibrant commercial base, improved local infrastructure, and preservation of important natural areas.
• The plan’s vision, objectives, and recommendations address these three broad issues through a variety of recommendations including:
• Exploring the development of a commercial node at the intersection of Rollins Road and Fairfield Road.
• Improving the streetside infrastructure (improving the swales and adding sidewalks) within the older residential areas of the Village.
• Utilization of future annexation and boundary agreements to preserve environmentally critical lands northwest of the Village.
Comments on the draft for the Round Lake Heights Comprehensive Plan can also be emailed to the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning’s (CMAP) Ricardo Lopez at firstname.lastname@example.org. Round Lake Heights received technical assistance in the development of this plan via CMAP’s Local Technical Assistance program, through which local communities can obtain free planning assistance to implement recommendations from the GO TO 2040 comprehensive regional plan.
