Comprehensive Plan Update Moving Forward
Welcome Sign A project now in its final stages after a year of work, a presentation of the final Comprehensive Plan Update will be made to the Planning and Zoning Commission on July 19 at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chamber at Village Hall. The updated plan will then be presented to the Village Board for final approval in August.

The Village's consultant, Ginkgo Planning and Design, Inc., worked closely with staff and elected officials over the past year to update the plan, and held several public forums to gather feedback from the community. A comprehensive plan is a tool used by municipalities for planning for the future growth, constant change, and evolution of the community. The Village's updated plan will shape development for the next decade, and covers long-term land use, economic development, transportation planning, and civil and stormwater engineering. The Comprehensive Plan also has an implementation component that spells out the critical tasks necessary to carry out the plan.

After approval, the plan will be used to guide policy that leads to real economic development opportunities and identifies development that works for specific areas through appropriate design, functionality, and uses driven by the market demand. The updated Comprehensive Plan provides detailed land use analysis, identifies potential redevelopment opportunities, and includes visual renderings for three sub-areas in Roselle: North Roselle Corridor; the Metra Station area; and the Village's Town Center.

The Village applied for and received a matching grant from the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) through their local assistance program to be used to help fund the work on the Comprehensive Plan. CMAP funds, including federal and state grants, covered half of the approximately $116,000 cost of the Comprehensive Plan Update. Updating the Village's Comprehensive Plan was one of the strategic goals set by the Village Board for 2014-2016.

Mosquito Spray Notification Hotlines 
mosquito Mosquito control is an important step in stopping the spread of diseases like West Nile Virus. In the summer months, trucks canvass Roselle neighborhoods to spray for mosquitoes. While there are no set schedules for mosquito spraying, Roselle residents can find out when spraying will be done in their neighborhoods. 
Residents who live in Bloomingdale Township (DuPage County) are served by Clarke Mosquito Control. Residents can contact Clarke's "Mosquito Hotline" at 1-800-942-2555 to get put on the list to be notified when spraying will be occurring in their neighborhood. 

Those who live in Schaumburg Township (Cook County) are served by the Northwest Mosquito Abatement District, which can be reached at (847) 537-2306. Residents can contact them to be put on the list for notification when spraying will be occurring.

Visit the Village of Roselle website for more information, including the DuPage County West Nile Virus Personal Protection Index program.
