Village of WestmontDate Issued: August 5, 2015
For the past several months, the Village of Westmont has been working on the development of the community’s Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan will express the Village’s mission, its vision for the future, core values, goals, and a plan to achieve these action items. The planning process is bringing together a diverse representation of the village with the Village Board to create a draft plan for the community to review.
The Strategic Plan process has engaged Village staff, various community leaders in one-on-one interviews, and workshops with representatives from the community. The next step in the process will be to integrate all of the data and develop an early draft for the Village Board to review. Then a preliminary draft of the document will be published for citizen input at a community dialogue in the Fall. A final draft will then be prepared for the Village Board to consider for adoption.
“This process has been very inspirational,” says Village Manager Steve May. “It is exciting to get people together who are passionate about the community and then discuss together how we move forward to make our village great. We expect many good ideas and initiatives as a result of this process.”
Lynn Montei, the consultant leading the Strategic Plan Process, will continue to oversee the development of the Strategic Plan throughout the Fall. Adoption of the Strategic Plan is expected before the end of the year.
