The village has released a draft version of its proposed comprehensive plan for public review.
The document, titled Envision Oak Park, sets a 20-year policy road map for everything in the village from zoning to land use to capital improvements.
Oak Park spokesman David Powers said the last comprehensive plan was released in 1990.
Development of the new plan started in 2012. The village conducted workshops, interviews and meetings with residents and local leaders to identify 11 quality-of-life topics detailed in the draft plan.
Residents will get the chance to provide input on the plan at the village board meeting scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on July 31 in the council chamber of the Oak Park Village Hall, 123 Madison St. The meeting will include a presentation by consultant Houseal Lavigne Associates.
Those unable to attend the meeting can submit comments by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and by regular mail to Envision Oak Park, Development Customer Services Department, Village Hall, 123 Madison St., Oak Park, Illinois, 60302.
Copies of the document are available for download on the village website www.oak-park.us and for public review at the Oak Park Public Library, 834 Lake St.
