Community planning helps to manage the constant change that affects all cities, towns and suburbs in a way that provides better choices for how people work and live. The planning process enables civic leaders, business interests, and citizens to play a meaningful role in creating a community that enriches people’s lives and is of lasting value.
To recognize these contributions, on Tuesday, October 1, 2019, the Village Board passed a resolution designating October as National Community Planning Month in the Village of Sugar Grove. Established in 2006, National Community Planning Month is celebrated each October as a way to highlight the importance of good planning in our communities. This year’s theme — Planning for Infrastructure That Benefits All — highlights how well-planned infrastructure projects (including roadways, transportation systems, housing, parks, and even broadband networks) strengthen communities, boost the economy, expand opportunity, and promote equitable development.
The Village Board recognizes the many valuable contributions made by professional community planners and extends their appreciation for the continued commitment to public service by these professionals.
