Update: On July 10, 2012, the Village of Carpentersville Board of Trustees officially adopted the Carpentersville Old Town Plan, which is the product of a community planning process that began in September 2011.
The Village of Carpentersville's Old Town Area has many historic strengths and community assets that provide a high quality of life for its residents, shoppers, and employees. Strategically situated within Dundee Township in Kane County, the Village is approximately 35 miles northwest of the City of Chicago. The Village's Old Town Area has seen a tremendous amount of reinvestment primarily through existing businesses. Priorities set in the Village's comprehensive plan recommended vibrant, mixed-use development for the Old Town Area. CMAP's Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program helped Carpentersville draft a long-range plan that will guide the area's future growth and focus on implementation.
