2022 Comprehensive Plan Update Process

The Village of Sugar Grove has partnered with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) for the purpose of preparing a new, updated Comprehensive Plan. The current Comprehensive Land Use Plan was originally approved in 2005 with amendments in 2014 and 2018. This effort will result in updated long-range recommendations for future growth and development, as well as the maintenance and enhancement of the character of the community.

All Comprehensive Plan Update information can be found on the online engagement platform at https://engage.cmap.illinois.gov/sugar-grove.

The four phase process starts in January 2022 and will run approximately 18 months. The four phases include:

  1. Getting to Know the Community;
  2. Visioning;
  3. Existing Conditions Analysis;
  4. Plan Development and Approval; and
  5. Implementation.

The Comprehensive Plan Update team held a Public Workshop on Monday, March 14, 2022 and completed a Community Survey on arch 23rd. The information is being compiled for the next steps of the process.

One important component of the Comprehensive Plan process is the input of a community steering committee. The Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee, appointed in December 2021, is an advisory committee comprised of residents to guide the process and build consensus around a comprehensive strategy for Sugar Grove’s future.

Steering Committee Purpose:

  • Review Community Input and Data
  • Work with Planning Team to Develop the Policy Framework, Maps for Plans, and Implementation Strategies Based on Community Consensus
  • Oversee Development of Plans
  • Serve as Ambassadors to the Planning Process
