Throughout a full-day meeting Saturday, the village board began to identify potential top goals it would pursue in the coming two years.

The substantial list of ideas generated by trustees is subject to further review. At the end of the meeting, however, trustees were given dot-shaped stickers to place next to ideas they considered to be-?#34;at least in that moment?#34;potential top priorities.

Some ideas that garnered at least one sticker from trustees follow. The list is not organized in order of importance:

?  Reviewing the village's role as developer

?  Strengthen citizen commissions

?  Identify "performance indicators"

?  Establish "participatory planning" procedures

?  Fund a senior center

?  Not increasing the number of parking garages (4 dots); increasing parking supply (2 dots)
