Comprehensive Plan Update Adopted 
The Village Board officially adopted the 2016 Comprehensive Plan at the August 22 Board meeting. The updated plan will shape development in Roselle for the next decade, and covers long-term land use, economic development, transportation planning, and civil and stormwater engineering.

The plan will be used to identify development that works for specific areas through appropriate design, functionality, and uses driven by market demand, and to guide policy that leads to real economic development opportunities. Updating the Village's Comprehensive Plan was one of the strategic goals set by the Village Board for 2014-2016.

The Village 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. For more information, including the full Comprehensive Plan Update Report, visit the Village's website
