The Village is working on updating the Comprehensive Plan. By definition, a comprehensive plan is general. It should not be made to include specific, detailed elements. Rather, it should be utilized as a guide, a reference against which specific plans and proposals are checked to determine whether they meet the basic objectives, vision, and needs of the community. A comprehensive plan should be used as a basis for all public decisions which affect the physical development and maintenance of the community. For instance, the plan should be used for:
* The development of future land use and development policy.
* The identification of stable neighborhoods and areas in the community that are susceptible to change.
* The location and design of major streets and implementation of other major transportation facilities and programs.
* The more detailed planning of neighborhoods, commercial centers and other subareas of the community.
* The maintenance and protection of open spaces and water bodies.
* The identification and scheduling of public investments and improvements.
* The improvement of the quality of life through the application of urban design principles.
