The plan was last updated in 2008 with land use maps that anticipated significant residential, commercial and industrial growth.  Growth in all sectors slowed as a result of the great recession minimizing the need for adjustments to the land use maps.  This will allow the process to focus in on sub-areas and components such as the downtown, re-development opportunities, gateways to the City, infrastructure and maintaining public and private property in our community.

In order to achieve the collective vision of the community, the public is encouraged to participate during a series of workshops to be held in January 2014.  If unable to attend, please feel free to provide feedback by clicking here or by sending an e-mail to:  aorton@cityofsycamore.com.
