Updating the Comprehensive Plan
The Village of Channahon received for a grant from The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) for an updated Comprehensive Plan that includes professional assistance from CMAP staff and a planning consulting firm. The Village was one of only three projects in Will County to be approved to receive this grant.
The grant money was used to develop a new comprehensive land plan. The award-winning planning firm of Houseal Lavigne Associates, along with the Village of Channahon and CMAP, worked to gather community input and formulate a draft of the plan. The plan was unveiled for public comment in the summer of 2019 and was adopted by the Village of Channahon Board of Trustees on Monday, December 16, 2019.
The plan will guide the Village with not only recommended land uses, but shape multi-modal transportation networks, open space preservation, zoning regulations, and provide a framework for development over the coming decades.
The Re-Imagine Channahon Comprehensive Plan serves to direct positive growth and attract new uses that meet the needs of current and future residents and businesses. View the plan (PDF).
