Future Land Use Workshops
The Village conducted public workshops in January and February of 2014 to receive public input on the development of the Lemont2030 future land use map. Workshop participants learned about the proposed future land use categories and helped provide direction for the development of Lemont'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.
Future land use map categories
are available for review in addition to the draft chapters of the plan.
Additional documents that informed and supported the draft Lemont2030 chapters are the 2012

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 continue to refine these statements as work on Lemont2030 continues

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
