With support from CMAP's Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program, this Planning Priorities report will consist of three phases to be completed in approximately nine months. The first phase will involve an examination of previous planning efforts and an analysis of existing conditions by CMAP staff in collaboration with the Village. The second phase will focus on outreach to community stakeholders, and the third phase will include the creation of a consensus-based planning priorities report with near-term strategies for the Village's leadership and appointed officials.
