A Comprehensive Plan serves as a municipality’s official policy document for physical improvement and development, and is intended to direct orderly growth and change as well as maintain and enhance livability in the Village. It establishes a long-range vision for the municipality by defining community goals and objectives, and providing guidance for implementing programs and policies for future growth. Similar to a business plan, a comprehensive plan should regularly be reviewed and updated so that it remains relevant with the current vision for the community and the ever changing economic environment.
The Village of Clarendon Hills Comprehensive Plan, originally adopted in 1991 and revised in 1993, addresses land use and zoning, community identity, economic development, infrastructure and transportation, annexation policy and ongoing public outreach.
In April 2016 the Village Board of Trustees directed Staff to prepare a comprehensive plan amendment making long-term recommendations addressing annexation, land use, infrastructure and economic development issues for the incorporated and unincorporated areas south of 55th Street, west of S Kingery Highway (IL-Rt 83), east of Richmond Avenue, and north of 59th Street. With Village Board support staff retained the services of a consultant team lead by Teska Associates to assist Staff with this exercise. Since that time, the Village has conducted multiple, well attended open houses, and published multiple interim reports leading to the development of the 55th Street Sub-Area Plan. On November 6, 2017, the Village Board adopted Ordinance No. 17-11-27 adopted the 55th Street Sub-Area Plan as a component of the Village Comprehensive Plan.
