Envision Elgin…A Comprehensive Plan for the City in the Suburbs

 Envision Elgin

What is a comprehensive plan?
The City of Elgin’s Comprehensive Plan will serve as the official guide for land use and development. The Comprehensive Plan will provide a foundation for decision-making based on community consensus, community vision, existing conditions, and future potentials. The Plan is intended to serve as a “road map” for 15 to 20 years into the future by guiding policy decisions and helping the community achieve its long-term objectives.

The Comprehensive Plan for the City of Elgin will address a variety of topics and will likely include community-wide plans for land use and development, annexation and growth areas, transportation and mobility, open space and environmental features, community facilities, and infrastructure. The Plan will also include detailed sub-area plans for key areas of the community.
