Outreach for the West Chicago Strategic Plan will continue into August with more roundtables and events. A Latino Forum, facilitated exclusively in Spanish, will be held to ensure that outreach captures the thoughts of the entire community. The date of that Forum is Monday, August 31, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall.
Residents are encouraged to participate online as well. A link to the project website contains questionnaires for both residents and businesses, and an online mapping tool, sMap, allows community members to make their own map of West Chicago.
About the Strategic Plan
The West Chicago Strategic Plan is a visioning and strategy planning process for the City of West Chicago. The Plan’s collective vision will increase cooperation and communication between public and private partners and develop coordinated approaches to important problems and opportunities. Ultimately, the Plan will answer, “What should the City of West Chicago look like in 20 years, and how do we get there?”
Upon completion, the West Chicago Strategic Plan will contain a clear vision statement, a set of guiding principles, community goals and objectives, and an implementation strategy. It is expected to be completed by the winter of 2015/2016.
