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

  • Revise zoning classifications from a focus on business use to impact on neighborhood/functionality
  • Streamline permitting and approval process for new businesses and create a contact position to guide business owners through the process.
  • Consider increasing height/density codes with offsetting setbacks in locations near Metra stations.
  • Pursue a mixed use approach to redeveloping the existing Post Office property.
