Lemont Comprehensive Plan Update
Future Land Use Workshops
The Village is currently conducting public workshops to receive public input into the development of the Lemont2030 future land use map. Workshops will be held at 6:00 p.m., Tuesday, January 28th and at 7:00 p.m., Monday, February 3rd at Village Hall. Workshop participants will use interactive tools to aid in the development of the Lemont2030 Comprehensive Plan’s future land use map. A future land use map is an essential element of any comprehensive plan and recommends locations for various types of future development. Both workshops will follow the same format; select the date and time that works best for your schedule.
Draft Lemont2030 Chapters Now Available
Draft chapters of Lemont2030 are now available for review and comment. Each chapter, or element, includes a vision statement and guiding principles which are based on input provided during the Lemont2030 vision survey, which was the Lemont2030 kick off nearly 24 months ago. These chapters are still being refined and we welcome your input. Please contact Village Planner Martha Glas at

A Vision for Lemont
Lemont’s comprehensive plan update began in late 2011 with a strong start. Over 400 people took time to provide input on their vision for Lemont's future. Village staff have used the comprehensive plan survey responses to develop draft vision statements for the comprehensive plan and for the plan’s major focus areas. On Wednesday, November 16, 2011 the Planning and Zoning Commission worked together with residents to refine these draft statements. The draft vision statements presented on the 16th are available
. Staff and the Planning & Zoning Commission have continue to refine these statements as work on Lemont2030 continues

are available for download. Thank you to the over 400 people who took time to give their input. The word cloud below visually depicts the most commonly repeated responses to one of the survey's most important questions, "What is your vision for Lemont?"
Flickr Photo Group
Since a picture is worth 1,000 words, we want to see your photos too. Please include a caption with each photo describing why you posted it (e.g. a photo of a park could mean you love that particular park, or could mean you think we don't have enough parks in your neighborhood). The Village may choose to use your photos in the new comprehensive plan to illustrate key concepts and plan priorities
