Strategic Vision - 2/23/2015

“The Village will initiate new public policies, and make strategic public investments, which will foster private development, increase the financial productivity of our community, and limit tax increases, while providing facilities and services in a sustainable manner; within the framework of the “Property Tax Freeze” and the “Property Tax Cap”, imposed by the State”; by employing the following principles:

  • Increasing the population of the Village by at least 10% over the next decade, by providing new affordable housing for young professionals and senior “empty nesters”, who wish to leave their large homes, but remain and age-in-place in the Village.
  • Continue to maintain and enhance the public realm, and improve residential neighborhoods, including incorporating complete streets and urban forest principles throughout the Village street network; providing healthy/alternative transportation opportunities along these corridors and at places of public assembly; and strengthening code enforcement.
  • Continue support of business community promotional and marketing initiatives, by incorporating appropriate technologies in Village operations and coordinated/collaborative branding and marketing efforts, local public mobility development, public parking, and place-making/way-finding efforts.
  • Develop the 18 Mile Creek corridor and adjacent public natural assets into local and regional outdoor recreational destinations.
  • Provide fiscal stability by increasing the financial productivity of the Village and its built environment by enacting public policies to encourage and facilitate development of new households to house increased population within the Village, to be served by enhanced local and regional alternative transportation systems.
