Draft Comprehensive Plan to be Reviewed January 25

On Wednesday, January 25, the Plan Commission is scheduled to review the draft Winnetka Futures 2040 Plan, the comprehensive plan for the Village of Winnetka. A comprehensive plan is a long-term vision for the community that serves as an official policy statement to guide future decision making. A copy of the draft plan can be found on the Village’s website. The community is invited to attend the January 25 meeting, which will start at 6 PM and will be held at 510 Green Bay Road.

The plan is a culmination of the community’s work, which began in the fall of 2019. It is based upon information and community input gathered and summarized in the Village Existing Conditions Report, which was shared with the Village Council, Plan Commission, and the community at the end of 2020. The draft plan is also based upon the Visioning document, on which the Plan Commission worked on during the first six months of 2022 and shared with the Village Council in July 2022. During September and October 2022, over 130 community members participated in open houses and affirmed that the draft vision statements, goals, and initiatives found in the Visioning document are in line with their future vision for the community.  
We look forward to hearing your thoughts on Winnetka’s vision for our future. In addition to the January Commission meeting, there will be other opportunities to provide comments to the Commission and the Village Council.
