Join the Village Board for Coffee Saturday, August 6
Do you have questions about what's happening in the Village of Roselle?  Coffee with the Village Board on Saturday, August 6 from 9:00 until 10:30 a.m., is a great opportunity to meet and talk with the Mayor and Board of Trustees.

Unlike regular Village Board or Committee of the Whole meetings, this informal session provides residents and business owners an opportunity to discuss issues affecting them and the community.

Whether it be an update on the recent redevelopment efforts, or a few questions about the Village code enforcement, the Mayor, Trustees, and Village Staff will be prepared to assist you.

So come in and enjoy a cup of coffee and chat with your local elected officials.
Comprehensive Plan Update Presentation to Village Board Scheduled for August 8 
A project now in its final stages after a year of work, a presentation of the 2016 Comprehensive Plan update will be made to the Village Board on August 8 during the Committee of the Whole meeting. The Comprehensive Plan Update report is available on the plan outreach website.

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, which was last done in the mid-1990s, was one of the strategic goals set by the Village Board for 2014-2016.
