Input Needed for Community Campus Plan

Bourbonnais, IL - The Village of Bourbonnais is currently making efforts to promote new activity and vitality within our central core, including planning for an enhanced community campus to offer a range of activities and events for both residents and visitors of all ages. To assist in this effort, the Village has commissioned The Lakota Group–an urban planning and landscape architecture consulting firm–to lead a creative planning and visioning process for the Municipal Center and surrounding areas within the center of the community. We are also partnering with you - our residents, businesses, visitors - to help us 'Imagine Bourbonnais'!

The purpose of this planning effort is to establish a community-approved vision and framework for transforming the Municipal Center area into a high-quality, year-round destination. In addition to providing initial design concepts for a new gathering space, the Community Campus Plan will focus on key goals of placemaking, promoting community identity & pride, and fostering economic development.

The Community Campus master planning process launched in the fall of 2019 and is expected to be completed in the spring of 2020, with several opportunities for community input provided along the way.
