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 here
