The Following platforms were approved at the Nov 10, 2014 Town Hall Meeting

Village Plank #1
The Caucus recommends that the Village Council provide additional opportunities for public input into the storm water plan.

Village Plank #2
The Caucus recommends that the Village Council continue to study the revitalization of Winnetka's commercial districts, specifically:
  • Streamline permitting and approval process for new businesses and create a contact position to guide business owners through the process.
  • Based on the 2014 Caucus Survey 57.9% of respondents either disagreed or had no opinion on changing the height/density codes in locations near Metrastations so no change is recommended.
  • There was no clear consensus from respondents regarding the redevelopment of the existing Post Office site therefore additional education and community involvement is needed before a direction is made regarding this very important community property.
